I didn’t work out for 2 whole years. 😱🤭🤦🏼♀️
It’s true. I have never been a fan of working out. The clothes aren’t that cute. It’s hard (duh ha). I hate taking showers in the middle of the day (or at all 🤣🤣🤣). Running plain sucks. The stares I would get at the gym that I translated in my mind to say, “Dis girl’s a fool who doesn’t know what she’s doing.”
I KNOW I’m not the only one. Where my ladies who hate working out at? 🙋🏼♀️🙋🏼♀️🙋🏼♀️
The thing is... I wanna be fit. I wanna be in shape. I KNOW it’s good for me. And while I’m mega blessed to be generally petite & small... I know I’m not as strong as I could be. I know I’m not “in shape” by any stretch of the imagination.
So I hadn’t worked out for 2 years until a couple weeks ago. All because of accountability.
I decided enough was enough. I stopped using excuses like “I’m too busy with work,” or “I have a kid now idk what to do with her.” And I grabbed my friends @kattkattykatt and @sunnyjunebug and we made it a group effort to work out together at LEAST twice a week. (Baby steps guys. 😘😉)
They come to my house because it’s easiest with Eloise. I put her in a swing so she stays put & happy. 🤣 And I purchased the @sweat app for a year subscription so it would force me to actually use it to not make the purchase a waste of money. 🤣👏🏼
What I’ve learned from this is that when you want to start a new habit, having accountability is sooo helpful. It also makes it way more fun to workout in a group - which will make you more likely to actually do it.
I would NOT have chosen to workout the last few weeks on my own, but by having two friends show up at my house, it forces me to take action. And by paying for something up front, it keeps me accountable to my investment. I chose an app I HAD to pay for because then, if I don’t work out after spending over $100... that’s a huge investment wasted. People who pay pay attention.
And guess what... working out is so much more fun now. 😉😱 WHO WOULDA THOUGHT!?
Were these tips helpful!? Anyone else on the workout struggle bus like me? 🏋🏼♀️🧘🏼♀️ - 14 hours ago
