Excuses, excuses...

Sunday, December 02, 2012

SparkCoach has asked me to reflect on the excuses I might make to get out of working out in the form of a blog; and really I haven't had many slip ups as of late maybe because I want to be able to tick off the check boxes in my lists of goals and run up my streaks. However prior to that there were of course always excuses, or maybe more accurately bargains lol.

Would always tell myself that I'd do todays workout plus tomorrows the next day to get out of todays, of course then tomorrow comes and chances are that neither workout gets done again because it then seems like to much, and so on and so on...

Really the biggest problem would be me getting comfy on the couch after work, and then just not wanting to get back up, and worse if I did get up my leg would have stiffened up so bad it was hard to walk. I can't believe I'd let it get to that point, I want badly to feel strong again.

However, my cardio has been really consistent over the last few weeks since joining the ten minute challenge, and even though my workouts have always been between 20 to 30 minutes, and sometimes twice a day, I wanted to make sure I did it daily so I stayed on track with the challenge. And now with the 28 day bootcamp I'm making strength training a habit as well.

Tomorrow is weigh in day for me and I think I'm down, and really I should look at the fact that I've already bettered my eating habits 100% as well as being a once to twice a day exerciser as an amazing change in my life, and just stop putting myself down and harness the insecurity, I've come a long way already, and more positives to come!

On a side note, my consistent working out, and the fact that I am down several pounds, has really inspired my mom to start working out as well and make some positive changes, and that makes me feel really good.
