OUT with the old, IN with the new!

I mentioned a few weeks ago about having fallen off the workout wagon this summer and stopped working out for a bit.  I've always been pretty active, working out 4-5 times a week but once I stop, I pretty much just stop going altogether.  A part of that was my health problems and me being too sick to do any physical activity but a big part of what was going on was in my head as well.  I kept on giving into excuses as to why I shouldn't work out and how it would affect me and how awful I felt after working out (which is partly true, working out sometimes makes me feel more sick) but these past 2 weeks I decided I wasn't going to let my health issues get to me and just made myself go.  I've been able to get to the gym 5 days a week alternating circuit training and yoga and it's made a huge difference in how I feel all around.  I admit, sitting around and making excuses was much easier than taking an hour and a half of my day to go work out but now that I'm in a routine, I hope to keep it up and not fall back to my excuses.  It's not exactly something "new" but it's definitely a "renew" to what I was doing and it certainly feels good to keep up with my health goals and hopefully will help out with my health issues as well.  With the transition of summer to fall I think now is the perfect time to kick old (bad) habits and make a change!

  3. I'm on the exact same boat... I was running every day this summer and then two weeks ago, I pulled a muscle and stopped. I've gotten a lot better but am still using the excuse of 'I should let it be 100%' better before getting on the treadmill again... I should actually just get up and start walking or do some yoga... Fall is the perfect time to get motivated again!

    1. I know exactly how it is. It's always so much easier to do things when you aren't injured or sick but then it's so easy to use it as an excuse too. I think as long as you give it time to heal and it isn't going to hurt you anymore, it's definitely worth it to slowly get back into it! I always need a good kick in the pants to get back into things but once I'm back in, I'm happy!
