This was me 6 months ago...I was eating 90% really-really clean, no sugar, working out with heavy weights 3-5 times a week and running. I felt great, had tons of energy, didn’t crave sweets or sugar, I loved the endorphin mood boost from working out, my abs were starting to come out and say “hey” and I was feeling really strong!💪🏼
I was on target to hit my goal of being in the “best shape of my life” AKA “I gotta six pack” by my birthday...
But then my grandma was hospitalized. Being worried about her and spending days and nights in the hospital, I was eating whatever they had from the Starbucks in the hospital lobby for most of my meals.
My heart was breaking, I was emotionally & physically exhausted. I never met my birthday goal and I didn’t care.
5 months ago today, just 2 days after my birthday, my grandma relocated to heaven & I lost my momentum and desire to workout again💔
I just realized how many months it’s been and how much running and working out has actually helped clear my mind & get through some hard times in my life. I’d run hours after losing my dad while tears ran down my face until it turned to smiles and I’d feel my dads love shining down on me from heaven like the sunshine on my shoulders.
I know my grandma would be cheering me on telling me to do one more rep, to have more fun & dance more.
So I may not have the urgency of a birthday, months away, anymore but I want to feel strong, look strong, I want the stress relief & endorphin boost from working out. No more saying I don’t have time, I’m too tired...time to be determined, committed and feel look strong, feel strong. Not waiting for a New Years resolution either! Ha ha who wants to join me?!?
