Today I had one of those days that I’m sure you’ve all been through
After working out consistently, and trying to eat healthy- my daily routine had to be on hold last week
I got two wisdom teeth removed and I was in pretty bad shape for a while
I still forced myself to go to the gym on “day 2” but it wasn’t as intense
Actually, as I type this, I still have a headache from a week ago when I had the oral surgery
And I’m still taking HEAVY meds to fall asleep without pain
(it’s been a super rough week trying to work and workout with the same energy as I normally have)
Anyway, I woke up super bummed that I’ve been “slacking” for a week
They say after 3 days of not working out you start losing muscles
I’m not new to exercising but I am new to strength training, so a week definitely did it
I noticed a huge body change when looking in the mirror today =\
I honestly couldn’t have felt more discouraged if I tried
You put in so many hours and so much effort for a week to ruin it?
That’s just not fair. I didn’t choose to have oral surgery, I had to.
I wanted to share this with you guys because this is reality
Even the most driven/motivating fitness models get discouraged
Even them will from time to time look in the mirror and not be pleased with what they see
It’s called being human
Or it’s also called shit happens.
So if you feel that way
Let yourself feel
Maybe give yourself a day off
But then get back at it like a hungry lion/lioness !
Go so hard that you crush every record in your book
Every day you will look slightly different, it’s normal
But this fitness mission we are in is not impossible
A week off or not, the important winning factor is NOT TO GIVE UP
Don’t let your mind fool ya!
It wants you to think it’s not possible. You’re not capable
Fuck those thoughts!
It is possible and you are capable. And you WILL prove it!
