fitness is a lifestyle
After a few weeks of getting into your healthy new year’s resolutions, many of you have come to quick realizations about your health and fitness level. You may have found motivation to keep going, or quite the opposite, and decided that it’s not worth it.
I am not sure where you lie, but I’ve witnessed too many times in my life where people quit their fitness goals simply because the scale didn’t move or the mirror didn’t reflect correctly.
So, I want you to take a moment to trust me, because I’m going to ask you to throw out the scale and not rely on the mirror to measure your progress. Instead, I want you to assess how you feel.
Do you feel stronger or more energized? Are you sleeping better? Are your clothes fitting better? Do you feel confident? Can you do one more push-up than you could 3 weeks ago? Are you digesting food better?
If you answered “YES” to any of these questions, then that is your proof and motivation to keep going, because it’s only going to get better if you continue. If you answered “NO”, then I want you to assess your plan.
Did you get the recommended amount of workouts in? Did you eat clean like you said you would this week? Did you drink enough water? Did you avoid the candy jar? Did you get to bed at a decent hour?
Wherever you are in your health and fitness journey, it’s always good to take a moment to reflect on how you feel and if you can be doing better. You need to make a change to reap the benefits, but change also takes time.
Today’s a new day, so let’s reflect and make those necessary adjustments now. Also, here’s a new workout to change up that routine:
30 minute AMRAP (As Many Rounds As Possible):
.25 mile run/sprint
10 Squat to press
30 squat jumps
