There is a lot of attention focused on what to wear to the gym, from Lulu Wunder Unders to Nike cross trainers, and an even greater focus on what to do in the gym. But what happens when the sweat session is over? Do your sweaty workout clothes end up in heap on the floor or buried in a laundry basket? Are you taking as much care of your active wear as you should be?
So you’ve decided to put your fitness front and center this year, or at least, you feel coerced into doing so after seeing Target stock it’s entire women’s department with swim suits. It’s only March! Can’t we get through Easter candy season first? So now comes the hard part, actually following through. For those who are new to the gym-scene, your first days, weeks…even month, can be totally overwhelming. This is where a personal trainer comes in.
Changing your lifestyle can be really hard. Scratch that. It IS really hard. And it requires a lot of hard work and discipline. This is probably the worst week for me to write this, seeing as how I have blown past my macro goals EVERY single day this week, but hey, maybe this makes me a little more relatable because I am right there struggling with you.
Cramming in time to work out as a mommy is tough, I get it. No really, I do. I have a career, I am a sometimes single mom (former full-time single mom); I am the chauffer, maid, nanny, chef, errand-runner, laundry doer, and constant go-to for my five-year-old’s entertainment purposes. If I was a betting woman, I would say this likely sounds very familiar to most of you. So when is there time to work out? How can you fit it into your already busy life? And how do you not feel guilty for taking time to yourself?
