What can I say? LIFE HAPPENS. I am human. I fail. I mess up. I have bad habits. I admit when I am wrong.
But you know what? I am more than ready to pick up where I left off and get back on track. This would be so much easier if I were talking about reading a book or finishing a project, but I am talking about my health, my mind, and my body. I am not really sure what happened, but after picking up a second job and adding 20+ hours to my work schedule each week, I just got tired and made excuses. Then one day of not working out turned into two which turned into a week, and before you know it almost 2 whole months had passed where I didn’t even care enough about myself to exercise and eat right. 😱😱😱
I have told myself over and over again that I was tired of restarting, but yet here I am again and it kind of makes me sad. But at the end of the day, I just have to move forward. I wish I knew what really happened – like why I lost my mojo. I didn’t want to exercise, I didn’t want to have anything to do with eating healthy. Was I punishing myself? Did I really just not care? Did I need a break from the “good” habits for the “easy” ones? I am not really sure. Maybe it is a combination of all of the above. But I do know this: I didn’t feel as good. I didn’t feel good in my tummy, I didn’t feel good in my clothes, I also didn’t feel as good in my brain and emotions and feelings. A lot has happened in the last two months, and I am sure even more is going to happen in the next two, but I realized that I still have to put my health first NOW so it will still be first later.
I felt like the best way to re-kick start my fitness was a quick round of the 21 Day Fix Extreme, which will end JUST in time to start the newest program, Core de Force. Both of which are going to kick my ass, and I seriously need that. 😂 Don’t forget to check out my Want To Get Fit Too page if you want details about how to join me in either (or both 😉) of these programs so you can avoid the typical holiday weight gain and instead lose weight to feel and look your best this holiday season.
Hope you have a fabulous Tuesday afternoon!
