The past few weeks I've been SUPER stressed! It's been tough to find the motivation to go to the gym... Although, I'm proud to say I went everyday last week like I said I would (and I've been running/walking everyday this week so far!)... Seriously, telling people what your goals are and writing down them really helps and hold you accountable! One day last week I went to the gym, got very frustrated just driving around the parking lot looking for a spot (and not to mention the rude people), so I left before stepping foot inside. I was supposed to be going to my boyfriend's house that night after I left the gym and when I got there he told me to go change my clothes and he was taking me back... He was making sure I reached my goals! So he dropped me off and told me he would be there whenever I was ready!
Sometimes we all need a little extra push and that's exactly what I needed that day! I felt so much better after... I mean really, who goes to the gym and regrets a workout?!
The past 12 weeks I've been participating in a fitbook challenge at work... and I was one of the few people who completed the challenge!! I got a little extra cash in my pocket and a fitlosophy food scale, which I can't wait to use! That sense of accomplishment made me week so much better! It reminded of my goals and why I do what I do! To help people live healthier and feel better is a huge accomplishment and I wouldn't want to do anything else! Plus this was the perfect way to set an example and practice what I preach!
