So I’ve been training EVERY day this week including Sunday. Have a lost 2 pounds?
What are my thoughts?
– I think I could’ve eaten a better last meal of the day
– I am at a ‘set-point’ weight right now and it’s really hard to get away from it
– I’m plateauing with my cardio workouts
– My body is adjusting to my increased intake from 1400 to 1800 calories a day (for my breast feeding)
So this morning I decided to do something different! Usually I train at 6am at the gym – but since I haven’t had an ‘off’ this week as I also trained on Sunday (which is unlike me) I decided to run on the treadmill at home.
Since I was VERY unmotivated, I told myself: “just twenty minutes”…
BUT after I stepped on, after 30 seconds tons of thoughts were going through my head:
“I worked out for the last 5 days with no rest.”
“I had 3 training sessions yesterday” (I trained in the morning, had my mom-me club then dance class at night)
and so…I got off the treadmill.
AND THEN…I got back on!
I realized that if I DON’T WORK OUT I WILL FEEL LIKE CRAP.
Not only that, but this is the FIRST WEEK IN A LONG TIME WHEN I’VE CONSISTENTLY TRAINED AT 6AM 5 DAYS IN A ROW! WOOOOHOO!
and so I did it. My soreness went away. My motivation went up. And I ran EVEN without music!
This is a story of a person who is just like all of you: UNMOTIVATED TO TRAIN sometimes 🙂
SO Train today…even if it’s just for twenty minutes!
have a great weekend everyone!
