For the past couple of days my ass has not checked into the gym. I surrender with my hands up. I have made lame excuses as to why I can’t attend ujam or why it is okay to cheat with sweets and bread.
Every since my birthday (which was in November by the way) I have let the holiday food, work and my busy agenda get the best of me.
I have noticed my energy level has hit its all time low. Could it be the lack of sleep, the busy days that I face everyday, the amount of homework I have to complete late at night which consumes my gym time?
Yes, I could use those facts as an excuse easily…and then I realize, I am not the only individual with a busy schedule. It is my choice to put my health first or to let myself go.
Now, I am not a nutritionist, trainer or doctor. But I am sure in tune with my body and believe that EVERY BODY is different from everybody’s.
First step to getting back on track. Recognizing where you went wrong. I started an amazing job that feeds me amazing things. Unfortunately, those amazing things aren’t amazing for my health. Food is fuel and creating a balance is going to bring balance to your overall health.
My check list for this week is to consume more water, cut the sugar and get to stepping. Yes, I am human and have fitness goals on how I would like to look, but is it healthy? This time, I am doing things a bit different. I am not driving to the gym to pump a shit load of iron for a quick fix. I am starting with what I put into my body and making it a lifestyle.
The second step is consistently taking care of my body through exercising and yoga which I will write about in another post!
