My Struggle To Stick With A Workout Routine
Happy Monday friends! This is a very exciting week because I’m heading to Denver for a little girls trip on Wednesday! Yay! This mama is pumped! Today I’m chatting a bit about my work out routine, or lack thereof…I hope some of you can relate!
I always feel so energized at the beginning of the week, but then find myself struggling by Wednesday #whoopsie where’s the coffee? Anyone else in the same boat? Last week I was so motivated to stick to a work out routine. My plan was to work out at home Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I was going to do a 15-20 minute workout video each day and a mile jog/walk.
The goal felt attainable on Monday as I was planning everything out. It was easy to stick to it on the first day, but when Wednesday came around I was all like ehhh…my body still hurts from Monday so I half-assed my way through a 10 minute work out video and skipped the run. Friday came around and I skipped both and decided that walking around a toddler gym was enough of a cardio session (totally lazy!).
Then Saturday I ran a full out olympic speed run on the trail downtown trying to get Noah to stop crying in his stroller. I could barely walk afterwards, and hobbled around most of Sunday in pain (FYI, I have the worst knees… I blame it on growing up a ballerina and jumping around way too much without landing properly).
This little scenario happens to me all of the time, and I end up getting a tad frustrated. I have to stop and remind myself that the reason my work out schedule is so crazy is because my life is so crazy. With my job, no two days are the same. Some days I’m at a coffee shop working, some days I’m out doing photo shoots and running errands, and other days I’m at home spending time with Noah and doing dishes and laundry.
The bottom line is that being healthy is a lifestyle. You don’t have to stick to the same rigid routine every week to be healthy. Do what works for you, and don’t stress out if you can’t stick to a routine. Choose happiness, health, and get active as much as you can when you can.
