I’m struggling to get back into my routine blogging. Work is busy, which is a good thing, and I’ve been making time to get to the gym, training Bear and spending time with him and then it seems like all the hours in a day are spent. I can only imagine how busy moms are!
This week things have been going well. I’ve been on track, but my motivation lessened a little bit. The “honeymoon phase” is over, haha. But, to keep things interesting I’m trying new recipes, keeping things fresh!
I’ve also been challenging myself at the gym more. It is funny because on Tuesday when I was working out at bootcamp the trainer, who was not my normal trainer, mentioned in conversations multiple times about me being athletic. Me? Athletic? I don’t look in the mirror and use that adjective to describe myself.
“It’s not who you are that holds you back, it’s who you think you’re not. ”
I’m a former athlete. I was a swimmer through college and I know how much hard work goes into the sport, but sometimes I have a hard time believing that girl and I are the same person now. The truth is that I do have an athlete hiding within. I’ve been going to a gym now for awhile and the improvement is great. My struggle has been in the kitchen, but I’ve realized this week that I’ve become a little complacent in my workouts. I was doing a lot of the same things and not really taking it up a level.
Well, today at work I had trouble raising my arms. I’m feeling it. I’m pushing harder and trying new things. Sure, I’m not perfect at it, but I’m trying. I am learning the modifiers as needed and I’m finding that I’m far more capable of things than I thought. I will note that at the gym there are trainers who show how to do things first. If you are new to working out and working to lose weight I would highly recommend speaking to a professional to learn proper form so you don’t hurt yourself!
My Non-Scale Victory this week is killing it at the gym. Going outside my comfort zone and trying new things!
What is your NSV this week?
