That's the thing with exercise and a healthy lifestyle: life happens.
So it has to be just that...a lifestyle. I'm not looking for a miracle or fad, I'm looking for permanence. Even if that means getting rid of some articles of clothing that will never fit again or never fitting back into my wedding dress. I just want something that keeps me healthy and sticks. Ya know? It's okay if it takes more than a few days or weeks even.
Do you have any tricks to stay motivated?
I looooove working out. I'm one of those weirdos that actually enjoy running. Breaking a sweat is my jam and using the equipment at the gym is one of my favorite ways to do it. I think the biggest problem is time. You too?
It's so easy to get caught up in the dishes and laundry and diapers and don't even get me started about the tv. If that thing gets turned on, I'm pretty much doomed and my chances of accomplishing anything practically diminish. It's a time-suck.
I declared today the first day of 30 Day Shred for me. I have to admit I'm already fearing and doubting myself. And I hate it! I'm already worried I will be too sore, too tired, or too busy to get in 30 minutes a day. But I must. I have to get motivated. I have to get my routine back. I have to take care of myself...for my self!
So, I'm going to be okay with being sore. I'm going to make 30 minutes for this each day. And I'm going to start with the modified exercises if need be. I'm going to do this.
So, here we go. Join me?
