One week post race ♀️♀️♀️🤩 I had realized that I needed a compelling REASON to become more consistent with my workouts, the shallow reasons just weren’t cuttin it. •
Pressing the Confirm button never felt so right. Having an exciting goal that means something to you is the way to go about fitness. •
So after pressing confirm, then began the 10 week challenge to work towards getting back in to shape and committing to training and eating healthy fuel!
Progress was not linear, I did not see the consistency that I wanted from my self throughout the entire time. Has this ever happened to you?
I started off strong the first month, but found my self OBSESSED, or overthinking, putting it as my TOP priority. Although I saw progress (in some weightloss, which was my subconscious reason for wanting to start training as well... though it’s like the opposite from building performance..) it was having a negative effect and straining my mental and emotional health (burnout). This led to wayning to the opposite side of taking training down a notch and being less obsessed with making sure my “macros” were hit every.single.day.
Life was a little more balanced the next couple of weeks. Then the next week fell completely off. The next was attempting to build some strength back up (remind you I’m in a deficit still, but even though I knew better, I thought I’d be fine). Fat loss plateaued. •
Its always 20/20 vision in hindsight. I learned a lot from this past challenge, and I’m excited to do things the right way this time instead of trying to attempt it all at once and not being as successful as I had hoped. •
Monday July 23rd marks the start of my next 10 week challenge for myself.
There’s gonna be LIFTING, there’s gonna be HIIT, fueling my body the correct way and the keeping of my sanity this time
MORAL of the story is that striving for progress takes trial and error, it’s hell in the moment but what you learn from it will last a lifetime.
once I have hit my goal, then the quest for performance building begins I hope to share my adventure!
