My workout plan has been somewhat nonexistent lately. I have been doing my best to keep moving forward but my body has been fighting against me. When I noticed this shift I knew I had to proceed differently. I took some time to reevaluate everything in my life and determine the cause of this slump. It was simple: STRESS and LIFE CHANGES. As an individual who has battled bouts of depression for most of their adult life, you know when it hits. And at times it is so unexpected!!! Everything in my life is going great. I have NOTHING to complain about (Thank you JESUS!!!) and it still managed to creep up on me. I had to realize that I am human! The important thing is not where you are but dealing with it. Pause. Take a moment to figure out what’s happening, what you need to adjust, make a plan and set it into action. And never feel afraid to reach out for help. Find safe people in your life who won’t judge you but instead offer you a haven of positivity and comfort. Thank goodness, I found my person to help me through those tough times.
I am so proud to say that today, I worked out. I did it! Maybe it was not as intense as it could have been but the point is to never quit trying. Weightloss is different for everyone. I’m not trying to be on a fad diet. I want to change my life one bite at a time.
