I have taken about a month and a 1/2 off from the gym. This is what eventually happens to me, I work out strong and hard, miss a day, then two and so the story goes. I absolutely love it when I go, so I'm not sure why I stop. I think it's because there are always so much to do, that I just don't have time. I also think it was easier when the girls were in school. They would go to school, I would work out and work. Or I would work then work out. It was easy.
After working their entire lives for someone else, on someone else's schedule, I finally feel like I can let my kids have fun on their summer vacation. They don't have to fly to MA to be taken care of by our parents just so they can have a fun summer, they don't have to be stuck in the house until I get home from work around 5ish. They now get to have me here to drop them off at friends houses, pick them up, bring them to the beach, pool or mall. Ok so maybe that isn't exactly a FUN summer, but it beats sitting in the house all day.
So I am trying to manage kids fun, work and working out. So working out went. Monday I went and walked the beach and LOVED it. I remember how much I loved it. So that is back and I am glad. I just need to get some headphones and arm band to hold my phone so I can listen to some music while I do it. It's too hot to walk the beach later in the day like I do during the Fall, Winter and Spring. So I have to do it in the morning, which is when Juan works out and takes the headphones and armband. (My girls "borrowed" and ruined my headphones. YAY! so I just have been using Juan's)
I also realized when I switched my workout classes from the evening to the morning that the instructors weren't to my level. The morning instructors were, well not as hard. I left feeling like I barely broke a sweat and didn't get a workout in on two of the three morning classes I was taking. The other one is amazing and hard and I love it. So I am trying a new class this morning and I am going to try to find a new schedule that I love. I can't wait to get in there and get back into a groove.
Hmm so I was totally intending on blogging about makeup and beauty this morning, but apparently I felt like talking about my work out woes. My question is, do you work out? What do you do for a work out? Do you take classes? Go for a walk or run? Use a gym? How do you stay motivated? Do life changes get in the way for you too? Let's talk fitness, so I feel super guilty and get back to working out! LOL!
