Help Me! I Am In An Exercise Rut!

Ok, so I was really busting my butt in the gym. For like 5 or 6 months after my open heart surgery, I was in the gym. A lot. First I started with cardiac rehabilitation, then I added in a gym membership, and eventually I had gotten to where I was working out 6 or 7 days a week. I lost a lot of weight and I could really start to tell a difference in my body’s shape and muscle tone. But then February came.

With February came bad weather. Rain, rain, rain. And more rain. Did I mention rain? And a sinus infection. Ugh. So, basically, I had a bunch of excuses to get out of exercising. And I used them. It’s all fun and games in January when everyone is working out, then February hits, people drop off, and inspiration can slowly go out the window. So, I ended up working out like half of what I had built up to in previous months in February. HALF, people! Now it’s March, I’ve done NOTHING and I need to turn this train around. Fast. Before I lose every bit of the progress that I had made.

I felt I needed some encouragement, so I went looking for it. That is one thing that I love so much about the Yes.Fit group on Facebook. I meeded help. I asked for it. I got it.

I have earned 12 Yes.Fit virtual race medals so far. I have them currently displayed on the towel rack in my bathroom. I wanted to put them in a place that I would see them often enough to keep them [and my health and exercise routine] always on my mind. Also, guests will see them and remind me of my goals, and perhaps be inspired to make their own exercise plan of action, as well.

I didn’t update you guys in February, so I will be posting twice this month to hold myself accountable. Just like Parmalee says, “It’s time to get back in the game.” So if, like me, you are feeling a bit discouraged, remember, every day is a brand new day, another chance to reach your goals. I am only a few miles away from finishing Sleeping Beauty so I am getting back into the gym tomorrow and doing just that. I need another green envelope in my life.
