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
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
