It Is Not Always Easy

tired

No, it isn’t. what am I speaking of, my fitness journey of course.  There are days I have to do a prep talk to myself to get up and I’m going to share a few of my stumbles and I how I recover before I fumble BIG

  1.  Those days I do not want to get up early for a work out because I didn’t either go to bed for adequate hours of sleep or I am just damn lazy.  I allow myself a few minutes to waddle and then just get up.   Usually there is no excuse large enough to deter my working out. Now I don’t reset the alarm or close my eyes I actually just stare and force myself up.
  2. Not wanting to increase my weights as recommended by my trainer (Beachbodyondemand). I will increase for at least 1/2 of a set then drop the weight. For example working out with 15 lb weights for 5 reps then drop to 12 or 10 lb for 5. However if the drop set is not challenging I will return to the higher weight.
  3. If I’m too fatigued I will use a lower weight or if I don’t get enough sleep and doing an early AM workout.  Under these circumstances I know my strength is the ……., yeah, but I will workout and complete the workout, remember NO EXCUSES.
  4. If the move in cardio workout is too challenging and my clumsy butt is going to be falling or too challenging I modify.  I am so happy with my streaming workouts there are modifiers.

It is not always easy, however I know to reach my goal I must stay focused and committed.  I am committed.
