As I write this I have just completed my 34th workout in a row. As someone who completely fell off a workout routine in the past year this was much needed and big for me!! I say big not meaning that I needed to do this in order to feel good about myself, instead I needed this to show me how much I love it.
I found things this past month that I realized I actually love doing, and in deciding that I was going to workout everyday I was forced to stick to a schedule. The initial first few weeks I had something motivating me and pushing me enough that by the end of the month I wanted to go regardless of the commitment that I had made to myself.
I wanted this to be about making me feel good rather than how I looked. For this reason I didn’t take pictures, measurements or weigh myself at the beginning and end instead I just reflected on how I felt. The past month I have felt less stressed & happier than I have in who knows how long. I feel stronger both mentally and physically and have realized the importance of fitness in my life.
I know that in the coming weeks I need to start giving myself occasional rest days, but this month “program” has made me realize that I need to be making fitness more of a priority in my life and sticking to something more frequent than what I had been doing leading up to this month.
