How I always manage to workout, even when I don't want to!




Self care is so hard when you work, raise children, have animals or any other commitment. Then combining any or all of these and it's like every minute of the day is being used by someone else!


I know!


Somedays it's all a lot and I feel like I just can't catch a break.


Then finally there becomes a gap in the schedule, that I've intentionally committed to training, but I seriously just don't want to go.


I want to be lazy and sit on the couch and eat. It's easy, I'm tired and I'm already feeling overwhelmed.


I start telling myself that a workout in this mind frame probably isn't best, and I need to rest. Or any other excuse I can think of.


But after many years of letting those excuses win, I can guarantee I feel just as rubbish as before if not worse on many occasions.


Now I approach my life, workouts and nutrition differently because I don't want to live my life full of regrets when I'm 80.


I work everyday to take care of myself because I don't want to get the an age where I look back and wish I'd done something different.


I don't want my body to be old & broken because I didn't take care of it when I was younger.


I don't want my health to suffer because I ate poorly & didn't manage my stress.


I don't want my emotional and mental health to wish I'd wasted less time and stress worrying about and focusing on useless things, but invested in the things that truely matter to me & my wellbeing.


These are my whys.


And the reason why I am a voice for prioritising yourself even when the short game may suffer.

Even when things feel a tiny bit harder in that minute, you will be thanking yourself for the next hour and years after that for taking care of your whole self.


I am playing the long game, and I hope you join me soon!
