Having long days working sometimes really interferes with my workouts. It really takes self motivation and on these trying days, however I reflect on my why.
My why is two-fold. 1. Is to be healthy, after years of battling with an eating disorder, reflecting and sharing eating disorders are not always a consistent behavior nor is it a teen disorder. I did begin in my teens but I am way into adult hood, yes many years. 2. I love working out and weights have always been a want to do and thought I could not do, but yes I can.
The reason for I thought I could not lift weights was only because my body was so malnourished, 2 lbs. was heavy and yes I teared for a few years and now I have wiped those tears away.
My fatigue is a motivation for me as to not make an excuse, take necessary adjustment to stay focused. Yes I may have to lift lighter or run shorter distance but I am focused.
This week I challenge any one with lost of focus and use “fatigue” as an excuse, refocus, find your why and adjust your schedule accordingly, even if it means a nap.
