I have been struggling to find a good balance the last few days between fitting in exercise/healthy eating and the other things going on in my life.
I haven't been happy with a lot of the changes I have made because of this shift in how busy things have been and at first I was upset about it but the more I think about it the more I have to ask myself how bad I really want this? I am now starting to understand that this journey is all about me and if I really want it to be a positive experience I have got to start finding ways to fit in my exercise and healthy eating.
I know other men and women out there who work 10 times harder in a day than I'm sure that I do and they still make time for the gym...I really have no excuses.
I am choosing to sleep in when I could be getting up and fitting in a morning workout. I am skipping out on healthy evening meals because I claim I have no time to make something but I could be asking my boyfriend for more help or preparing things on the weekend or the night before or even the morning of.
These poor choices have left me with an extremely bad attitude these past few days because I know the choices are only going to hinder my success.
I really do want this and I am willing to do what it takes to make it happen. Starting now!
The 5% challenge starts on Saturday and I couldn't be happier to be a part of the Casual Travellers. This is the first time I have done this challenge. I am really nervous but also excited to see how it goes and I think it is a great step in the right direction for me and a really cool thing to try. Wish me luck!
