A little truth about life and fitness

We’ve all had those days. When life becomes crazy and you’re schedule feels like you barely have time to sleep.  Everyone always keeps repeating the quote that says ‘You make time for what you truly want’, which is true.  However, if you are like me, there sometimes doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day to incorporate everything I truly want to.  When these days happen, heading to the gym for a workout sadly gets pushed down on my list.

Now yes, I am an ambassador for an online fitness challenge and I am admitting to not going to the gym every single day.  Do I beat myself up for this fact? Absolutely not! I am human and beating myself up for being someone who’s life can become suddenly chaotic each day is not healthy (or necessary).  Because of WorkItOut100 and going through various rounds of the 100 day challenge, my body has gotten used to being active every single day.  And every single day, even on the days when I am not getting my sweat on in the gym, I am active.  I make the conscious decision to walk those extra blocks, to take the stairs instead of the escalator/elevator and to get up to talk to a co-worker instead of sending an email.

The goal of WorkItOut100 is to help create a healthier lifestyle by getting up and moving.  Whatever that type of movement may be, just do it. Don’t beat yourself up for when life gets crazy and you’re not completely drenched in sweat at the gym.  To live a healthy lifestyle, you not only have to strive to be physically healthy, but mentally healthy.

Life happens, and we’re all here to enjoy the ride while we can.
