I confess that…I let life get in my way


Last week I did not go to the gym because life got in the way a little bit.  I had promised myself before that I would never let life get in my way when it came to the gym but I suppose it was bound to happen at some point.  There was no detrimental injury that kept me from going like the last time I missed a few days at the gym.  There were just some things that came up that were unavoidable.  Today was my first day back in over a week and it felt really good.  Now I went in there with the mindset that I was going to do two hours of some intense cardio and light weights and sweat my heart out to begin to make up for the days I had missed.  However, I forgot that when you haven’t gone in over a week and you’re used to going everyday it takes more than a day to get back into the swing of things.  I did my best and I felt good afterwards and I suppose that’s all that really matters.  Now during my week off from the gym I didn’t exactly eat the way I should’ve been eating either but I’m going to make sure to get that back on track as well.  It’s funny because even though I had missed quite a few days and in my mind I was wondering how much damage those few days missed was going to do to my weight loss and how much I had gained in just a week, I got a number of compliments on how much I am losing when I went in there today.  It made me feel good and a lot less bad about the missing days but I know that I can’t afford to make a habit out of that.  Well I’m off to go watch The Biggest Loser and see how inspired I can get for tomorrow morning’s workout.  Until next time…Don’t beat yourself up too bad for the days you might be missing in your workout!

One thought on “I confess that…I let life get in my way

  1. “Today was my first day back in over a week and it felt really good.”
    That’s excellent – when you know you are getting in the right mind-set
