Friday Fight Round 1
Sometimes I think I’m such a whiner, LOL! I’ve somehow gotten it into my head that 30 minutes is a lifetime! I have to remind myself that it’s less time than it takes to do a load of laundry, less time than cooking dinner and less time than cleaning house. Why have I made my workout a villain?!? I know everyone thinks that I workout all day every day. But believe me, while I enjoy being active, doing burpees and lunges and push-ups are not on my favorite things to do list. Why do I do these crazy workouts? (They aren’t really that crazy.) I do them because of health. I do them because of range of motion. I do them because of strength. I do them because I’m fighting to be able to do all of the things I love and I want to be able to keep up with my crazy kids!
When I decided to start Coaching, I already had the goal of completing a Spartan Race. And I did that. But here are a few things I’ve gained from making exercise a non negotiable in my life.
- Hip Flexibility- I used to only be able to sit in the car for a couple hours before my hips started aching. I made it 4+ hours in the car with no issues on the way to Yellowstone last month.
- Confidence- I used to cake on the make up, cry about my cellulite (yes I still have some and it probably won’t ever go away, it’s a skin condition) and I used to feel like I was unworthy of friendship unless I was drunk and being the life of the party. Now, I wear mascara and a bit of bronzer. I don’t like my cellulite but it’s a part of life, just like my tiger stripes. And I quit drinking and have made so many new friends because I can talk to people without the liquid courage!
- Muscle- I can do burpees! I can do push-ups! I can almost do more than 1 pull-up. Muscle gives me the ability to do more things. I went snowboarding multiple times this winter and guess what? I was never sore the day after!
The list goes on but those are the 3 things that I appreciate the most. So, HELLO DARCI, exercise is a good thing. 30 minutes is only a small part of your day and it does so much good!
So yes I fought the urge not to press play today like I do everyday. You aren’t alone in that battle. Just remember why you started your journey. Remember where you want to go! If you aren’t even sure where to get started. Find me on Facebook or Instagram and send me a message, everyone starts somewhere and I want to help you take the next step.
#IMaxedOut @10:28, last Friday Fight time was 8:32, yeah buddy!!!
One more thing…
Coaching has given me the accountability to stick with it. Before I signed up I had NEVER completed anything, I’ve now completed 7 workout programs! There’s nothing like blasting on social media that you’ve got a plan. Makes you really want to stick to it! Join me and my team Monday to find out more about what Coaching really is. Let me know you joined the event so I can help you along. 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻 Darcisfitkick@gmail.com
