Today was a rough day. My workout didn’t go as planned, and it was frustrating. What can I say? Babies don’t always cooperate with my plans.
My workouts are usually the one thing I look to, to relieve stress on the not so good days. They keep me calm and much happier. When that workout stress relief is interrupted multiple times, it just adds to the stress and chaos that is my day.
But that wasn’t all. I also lacked the motivation to work out. Between the day’s activities, children being difficult and getting very little sleep last night, I just wanted to sleep instead of working out. Sleep still sounds so good, though! (I say that as I’m staying up late to write this blog post. Guess that’s a little counter-productive.)
I’m proud of myself though because I persevered through my work out in the midst of the chaos. It was challenging to restart my workout three different times, but I was determined to stick with the plan. I guess that means I actually worked out more? Who knows…
I have gone through so many false starts with fitness programs in the past several years, and I refuse to let this be another one.
Everyone has rough days. I’m actually shocked it’s taken me this long to lose a little motivation. Usually, it happens much sooner so that’s definitely an improvement!
I just keep telling myself that I’m doing this for a reason. It’s about my health, my appearance, my sanity and my family.
Being a role model for my children is not easy. I fail at it every day, but I try. I really want them to see my hard work and how it pays off because that’s a lesson that works for everything in life.
I just have to keep moving forward. One day at a time, one workout at a time until I reach my goals.
Hopefully, tomorrow will be a much better day, and I will wake up with renewed motivation. As long as I stay committed, I know I can stay on track.
I just have to remember that I’m doing this for me, for my family and for our future.
Workout Tip: Keep going even when it’s hard. The end result is worth it! Just keep focusing on your goals and where you want to end up. Two months from now, you will be happy that you stuck with it.
