Working out is one of my biggest life struggles along with motivating myself to live a healthier lifestyle. This includes eating healthier and putting the effort to actually workout.
I have to say that food wise, I’ve been so much better about eating healthier, yet it didn’t happen overnight. It took me years to get to where I am and I still indulge in sweets. It’s always important for me to be able to eat the foods I love like donuts, fair food, and tacos when I can.
I’m at a point in my life where working out is not a question. It’s more of something I have to do for my health, and even help my body de-stress and relax. So by allowing a fitness trainer to take control, it gives me the ability to take a back-seat, and not think twice about what I’m doing. I figure they know which combo workouts to put together and I simply follow to help target my goals.
I want to be clear that I don’t go to a gym, I do home workouts in the comfort of my home. Gym’s have never been my thing and I’ve tried a few memberships before but they didn’t work out for me.
AND trust me, I have a love/hate relationship with working-out. I love feeling de-stressed and relaxed after working-out; but in no way shape or form do I wake up saying, ‘I love to work out’. I literally dread it every morning. My trick to working out is to do it as soon as I wake up. Once my workout area is ready, I jump straight into warming-up. And then into the workout which by then I’m sweating, mid-way through the routine, fully awake and nearly almost done.
If you’re curious about my workouts they range from 30-45 minutes with these workout trainers here. I try to workout during the weekdays and give myself the weekends to rest.
