I follow quite a few blogs, ordinary people and a elect few celebrities. Their lives are smilingly perfect. Everything runs on schedule, they are smiley and (appear to be) happy people. Their lives seems to just roll without a hitch…blah, blah, blah.
Welcome to my world! Where more times than not, we fly by the seat of our pants to keep things moving. However, I am getting better with having a routine and getting on schedule. But I’m human and there are times that shit just derails and falls apart.
My A beautiful beast post provided a little insight on my weight loss journey. You learned that my attendance record can be choppy at times. I have plenty of workout experiences and plenty of gym pictures to write a year’s worth of workout posts that will motivate not only you and myself as well. But I’m not here to put on airs and pretend to be someone that i’m not.
I haven’t worked out in three weeks! Why? Honestly, I haven’t been overly motivated to go. I’m a wife, I have two small children and I work full-time. I make time for the gym majority of the time, but there are times that I am running on zero and need a break. Not necessarily a three week break though. At this point I’m just being a slacker.
As a person who has struggled with weight all my life, I am happy to have finally gained knowledge on nutrition and found a gym that I love. But the struggle is real. Thank God for my trainer! He’s been all up in all my social media and texting about where I am and what’s going on -another reason I love my gym. The trainers are personally concerned with our well-being.
Even though I haven’t worked out in three weeks, I am being mindful of what I eat making healthy choices at least 80 percent of the time. Which means that I’m maintaining my weight. It also means that I’m not building any cardiovascular endurance or gaining any muscle. But I have also assured my trainer that I’ll be back after spring break!
Are you on a plus size fit journey? What are some of the challenges you face with workout consistency?
