I'd fail myself for those pushups on a PT test 😧 but let's get to it, story time:
I've been recovering from an injury for the last 6 weeks and it's been rough and amazing at the same time to get back to the gym. Here's the thing though, my injury was purely mental. I wore myself down and when my body asked for a break I kept going. Then I suddenly just felt weak. So I skipped a day. That turned into a week. It's now 6 weeks later that I'm back. Yeah I guess I came at least once a week, but I lost myself in saying I didn't have time for the gym. Then I lost myself in complaining about things like being tired, or work, or my toddler wearing me out. What really happened is that I lost my gym time cause I went too hard for too long then I slowly started slumping into a woe is me attitude. I kept to my diet pretty well except refeed, but I just lost "me". So I promised I needed to get back to the gym. I'm SO SORE y'all! But I'm back. I'm motivated again. I'm happy. I'm totally a weak bag of melted butter, shoot running a mile was hard. So the moral of the story is yo listen when your body needs a break, allow yourself a mental break from the strict regimen. Allow yourself to enjoy your fitness again. It's a lifelong journey- failing isn't an option. I'm so thankful for that mental break. Now I'm better than ever! I managed to drop another 6lbs of that time and I'm hoping it was all fat but we shall see. Wish me luck #fitfam!
