Unfortunately my struggle laid in maintaining or lowering my weight any more than that, the slightest slip in eating habits seemed to balloon me right back up, undoing in a few days what took a month to accomplish.
Now, over one year later and back up to 182lbs I'm beginning again...but this time I've finally accepted that as much as I may hate to sweat and visit the gym I hate my fat FAR more! So paired with healthy recipes, look out gym — here I finally come!
I’ve been weak and practically bedridden since I came down with something on saturday, and am thinking I’ll finally be ok to go back to work tomorrow, just not sure how much time I should give myself before starting back up at the gym again. I dont want to wear myself out while my body is fighting off whatever i caught, but I also don’t want to lose my routine…
For the longest time I hated going to the gym, I felt that it cut into my evenings and totally threw off supper since I get of at 5:00 and have 40 mins to drive home. the earliest to possibly get home would be 7, and at that point i didn’t want to prepare anything and it felt too late to eat more than a meal replacement shake. Not the healthiest way to go 5 days a week… I also work late a lot and even just 20 mins is enough to totally kill any thoughts of doing anything but going home to relax.
I’m not a morning person but last week I decided to at least try to wake up earlier and see if I could deal with the morning routine that comes so naturally to others.. I. LOVE. IT.
I’ve been going 4x a week now mon, tues, thurs, an fri when before I felt lucky to make it once. I feel more awake during the day, It feels AMAZING to know I’m starting the day and have already accomplished something, I love finally being able to have a routine to stick to, and I get to go straight home after work and just enjoy the evening.
So even if you think you’ll hate changing up your current day, but can’t manage to fit in your workout… TRY something different because it might be the answer
