Let’s talk about how my healthy balance idea did not go as planned. I’ve been doing some soul searching this week, and I have come to the conclusion why I keep failing at losing this weight I’ve put on. Most of the recording has been done right before or after my workouts this week because that’s honestly the most time I’ve had to do anything.
The chats we’ve had have been helpful. I’ve been brutally honest with myself and what’s been holding me back from success. First, I thought I just needed to set a date for another show. In my heart, I know it’s not something I would be comfortable doing anytime soon. Over this past week, I have made an effort to do weight training every day. As a result, I do have more energy plus I’m happy.
The one thing that I know about myself is that I’m an all or nothing girl. When it comes to fitness, I want to be all in and dedicate a significant portion of my day to it. My life does not leave me with much time to do anything outside of work. So, that’s where my problem is. My solution is to accept that I can’t do things “perfectly.” I can only do my best and give as much as I can. I have to stop being so hard on myself for what I can’t do.
The major lesson is that I can make progress even if it’s slower than I would like it to be. Work with what I have and be proud of any and all changes that happen. I will find that healthy balance one of these days. So glad I figured out what has been holding me back. Now I have a solid plan to move forward. No challenge is so large that we can’t figure out a way to make things work. I know I can do it, so I’m pretty excited about the future.
