Before Emerson, fitting in my daily workout was a huge priority. I obviously had a lot of other things that I cared about and prioritized, but working out and running was top of the list. Now, there are a lot of other things that take precedence which has been a hard thing for me to come to terms with, but also just a fact of life. I am working hard to fit in my workouts but sometimes that extra half hour in bed or moment on the couch is too good to pass up!
This morning, I had to drum up motivation to workout from all aspects of life including scrolling Instagram, looking at the #tiuteam hashtag, running on the treadmill for 10 min (then stopping because I had to go the bathroom #momlife) and doing the new Tone It Up Beach Ballin’ workout. Nothing really got me excited or sweaty so I made up my own AMRAP (as many reps as possible) workout inspired by Jayme [@fit_n_clean_mama].
This did the trick. Put me up against a clock and I’ll get to work! I made it through 4.5 rounds with about 20-30 second breaks between each set. Try it out and let me know many sets you complete!
My nutrition has been off lately and it 💯 affects my energy and drive to workout. I needed a good workout this morning to help me reset. Because I refuse to let a couple bad days completely throw me off. I refuse to give up on my goals. I refuse to quit.
This journey is not easy. I feel like every step forward ends up with 2 steps back but I keep chipping away. I truly believe one day I will reach a place I am happy with and embrace that lifestyle whole-heartedly. I just have to stay positive, never give up, and follow my own path and my own heart. Too often I let what others think affect how I act and make decisions. Only I can get myself to where I want to be.
