Low Energy | Gym Consistency

I have been really low on energy lately and I think it has something to do with the fact that I haven't been to the gym yet this week! It could also have something to do with my cycle. Which is another reason why I just haven't felt motivated to go to the gym in the past few days. 

Even though I don't feel like going to the gym AT ALL tonight, I think I am going to use my husband as my accountability partner and we are going to go get it done this evening!


This week in particular, I am being reminded that consistency means still showing up and working through the times when you don't feel like it. I definitely don't feel like it this week. I have cramps, I am super low on energy and yet, I still have goals that I want to reach. I definitely have been more lax on what I've been eating this week (last night my husband and I shared a quart of ice cream...), but I still need to give as much as I can toward this week. I am 1 pound up from last Friday's weigh-in and so I have two days to work it off so I don't end this week with a gain.

On a positive note, I am noticing just from having a few days off from the gym, how consistent I have been in the past two months with my gym sessions. I am so proud of myself for making it to the gym anywhere from 2-3 times per week for the past couple months. It has become so much of a routine now that I am really starting to notice a change in my body and attitude when I don't work out.  My body misses it and it's only been a few days! 

Working out has been my main way to relieve stress lately and I am looking forward to getting back in the gym tonight, even though my body would much rather lay on the couch all night (like last night), I know the gym will make me feel better physically and mentally!
