Man, I really was not feeling my workout today. But I went in and got it done, just because I know if I didn’t in 3 months from now I’d regret it. Fitness is more than just looking good. It’s the feeling of accomplishment you get when you hit new PRs. It’s realizing that you can do something this week that you couldn’t do last week. It’s pushing yourself as far as possible. It’s the best depression and anxiety medicine there is.
When I need motivation, I just think about Lucy. How would I want her to act? Do I want her to be motivated, or do I want her to find excuses not to do things? I also think about MY goals. I remind myself how far I’ve come and that if I just keep pushing, in a few months I’ll be where I want to be.
I’ll share my latest workout with you guys in the next post, and then I’ll have Lucy’s 8 month blog and milestones reached post to write up as well!
