Fitness is a struggle, I mean for those of us that losing weight means counting calories, dragging your butt to the gym, and meal prepping… it’s a struggle.
I can honestly tell you its really hard for me, in high school I danced over 40 hours a week, all that cardio equaled out to a very skinny girl with very little thinking about it. However over the years without the 40 hours of dance you realize that it doesn’t work that way anymore. You have to think about how to lose the weight and sometimes it means falling down a lot.
A lot of failed diets, a lot of missing the gym, a lot of times where you just didn’t get it done; then one day your mind flips… You realize that if you want this it takes more than motivation, because you aren’t always motivated.
It takes dedication; it takes 5am workouts so you can get the work out in before work since you won’t have time after. It takes missing that hockey game your friend has free tickets to, so you can get a work out in. You will make sacrifices and sometimes you will succeed and sometimes you won’t, you have to just wake up every morning and start again.
Think of every morning as a new day.
Today I will be healthy, I will be active, I will push harder. Take it one day at a time, one step at a time, one minute at a time.
