A recap of my weekly workouts from the previous week.
Well hello there, and happy Monday! Hope everyone had a fun/laidback/productive…weekend. Whatever you did, I hope you enjoyed it.
We relaxed some, worked out, did some work, looked at some houses, and had our friend’s housewarming party. It was a fun weekend of work and play.
I’m going to be totally honest here – I’ve been struggling a little to get back into my regular routine of working out 5 days a week. With not working out at all in Europe and feeling good, it’s just hard for me to get back into the swing of it. I know I walked a shit ton in Europe, so that definitely helped me in staying active over there without breaking a sweat.
But I’m not walking 20k steps a day here so I just can’t not do anything. But some days it feels like a struggle to get to the gym. Once I am there and in the workout, I feel a lot better, but it’s that first effort that is killing me. I’m hoping it is just a little phase I am going through and I will be back to my old self soon.
How you do overcome those phases when you don’t feel like working out?
