I stopped blogging. Mostly because it is SUCH a time suck with not much reward (does anyone even read blogs anymore? I feel like its all about IG lately...)
But also because 2 KIDS and WORK and FAMILY and HOME... and all the things...
There just hasn't been time!
But to save I haven't missed this space has been a lie.
For those that have been around for awhile know that I STRUGGLE with body image and my size/weight.
I just do! And as much as I work at being positive... the negative is still there.
I decided (with the help of a friend) that I needed a change of scenery and a little more motivation
My workouts have ALWAYS been done at home... since 2010
And I definitely tend to treat myself like a dog sometimes (AKA TREATS!)
November 2017 I started going to OrangeTheory Fitness and
I was scared.
Scared of being judged. Scared of not being fast enough, strong enough, not good enough to keep up.
But I kept going, and I kept doing.
And here I am 5 months later
Definitely in the best shape I've been in a LONG time
In a better mental head space
And found a community I didn't know I needed
If you've been thinking of switching it up, changing your routine, DO IT.
Do something SCARY
Because you just might LOVE it
Like I did and still do
The workouts are HARD but the people are what make it what it is!
I feel inspired by these people who constantly push themselves to be better- so it makes ME want to be better!
The coaches... guys... the COACHES!
They know just what to say and when you say it to give you that kick of motivation you need to keep going...
So if you haven't tried OTF... and want to... go do it
If you don't thats OK! Find something you love and just go with it!
