Well, I gotta admit this whole getting back into shape business has been ROUGH.
Don't get me wrong, I'm LOVING the challenge. I just didn't think I would be this out of shape! I went for a 1 km walk yesterday and my thighs are burning this morning. The day before I did a boxing upper body workout and my arms in so much pain right now it hurts to even put underwear on (don't worry I struggled this morning and got the job done)! YES!
This struggle has been a nice reminder of what my clients go through when they first start (or re-start) working out with me. I can now see and remember why it is SO easy to stop when you first start working out. Just know that your body is happiest when it's working regularly. Yes, working out will hurt but the real beauty and benefits from exercise are just past our comfort zone level. A workout is supposed to WORK you out. It's not meant to be easy, at all! I know in a few weeks from now I'll be back to where I was before I broke my foot. The key once you start feeling your workouts is to keep going. Consistency is critical for progress.
Head set is SO important at this phase. Learn to get excited about the intensity. Workouts don't get easier, they just get better!
If you're feeling your workout this week that's great! I'm happy to be back there with you. Have a wonderful weekend guys!
