Real talk post today....... I was in a BAD mental spot today. ✔️Arianna was up at 10,12,2,3:30and 5:30 for the day so I didn't sleep much
✔️for some reason I decided to weigh my self and realized I gained 12 pounds already this pregnancy which is more than I'd like at this point. My body fat has grown a lot and I was feeling really down
✔️After losing 60 pounds, gaining 45 with Arianna, then losing 40, its mentally tough to start gaining again. I know it's what happens but if you've ever lost weight then gained it back you know what I mean. On top of it, between pregnancy and breastfeeding my chest is just uncomfortably large and makes me feel sloppy. ✔️when Arianna napped I took a snooze as well so that meant not getting in a workout or finishing work which made me
Feel lazy and mad at myself and I emotionally fed that with cookies 👍but then I did a gut check and reminded myself why I work out now. To be healthy. For me and baby. So even though it is normally impossible to workout with Arianna awake, with the help of Sesame steeet and puzzles I got in a 25
Minute cardio which kept me on pass to finish my program on time. Being sick last week already pushed me back so I can't have anymore unscheduled rest days if I want to be ready to start YouV2.
And you know what.... I'm dang proud of myself. It wasn't the best workout, my workout pants are too tight bc I need maternity ones, and I felt sick during it because of the cookies BUT I did it.
Willpower is a muscle you have to grow. Often in my accountability groups o have too many people fall off the wagon because I don't check in with them daily. But that's not my job. My job is to help them find that inner strength to keep going, not follow them around smacking bad foods out of their hand.
So when they are off, I tell them what I had to tell myself today.
Why do you want to be healthy? When that is deep enough, you make yourself do it when you don't want to. When you're sad. When you have excuses.
Remember that YOU are sooooo worth the effort! And even when it's not your best, DONE is better than not done!
