Switch It Up A Little!
to workout. It doesn’t happen to me often but it happens. These past couple months it’s been tough to squeeze everything in. Family, work, lifting, workouts, sleep. You get my point. I find myself feeling less and less motivated to workout. I can honestly say that has happened very few times since I was 20 years old. Even after having my babies, I couldn’t wait to head out the door for a run. Nothing was going to stop me!
So why now? I’m not sure. But I do know it means I have to switch things up. I really like the lifting program I am doing so that stays. I love working out with friends but I can only do it so often. Doing the WODs by myself gets tiring. So maybe the days that I can take a class, I focus on that workout. The days that I cannot, I just lift. I need to remember that I don’t need the cardio to lose weight. Do I really care if I lose weight anyway? Really, I haven’t weighed myself in almost a year!
- Be present for my family. Not on my phone, not trying to get a couple more things done, just be present.
- Feel good. Realize when too much is too much. Whether it’s workouts or sugar. Stop before it makes me feel like crap!
- Don’t stress over the small stuff. Life is too short to lay awake at night worrying about money. Yes, we need money to live but a truly meaningful life is way beyond money.
- Enjoy every day. Yesterday I walked outside to watch my chickens for a bit. I didn’t take my phone. I just sat and watched the chickens. And it was wonderful (up until the red rooster chased me across the yard!)
If you are stuck in a rut, I hope you too can find your way out. Hit me up if you need help!
