It’s tough admitting to weight gain, and although I’ve carried about 15 extra lbs on my frame for a while now, it became truly apparent to me that I needed to take action once I hit the 20lbs gained.
I used laziness yesterday as to why I stopped doing certain things/habits but a lot of it has to do with how busy I’ve gotten.
I hate talking about this weight gain. I feel so ungrateful. Ive accomplished all my business goals Ive set out to do and yet here I am complaining about a few pounds Ive packed on along the way. But I'm feeling the pressure to look a certain way and although I may never have the physique of a ballet instructor, I looked pretty darn presentable 15 lbs ago.
I’m struggling to find the balance between newer acquired responsibilities with work as well as launching Train with Purpose. I feel like I’m busy all the time. I wake up, prepare to train a client, train the client, get ready for work, work, and after work I’m usually working on more Train with Purpose stuff/leading my training group. Yet, I’m not even getting half the stuff I want to get accomplished, accomplished. I’ve pretty much cast any routine I had in place aside just to try to keep afloat on these two responsibilities.
When this all started, I figured the struggle would be finding a venue where I could grow a following (I have two groups signed up for the summer already!) but it's becoming more apparent that finding the work balance is my struggle. Making room for important stuff like washing clothes, cooking a meal (and I can't remember the last time I cooked a meal!), cleaning the house is where I'm failing, right now.
The point is: I know I can do this, live a healthy life, continue on with my professional goals, I just need to work it out. Like I tell my clients, you just started running, focus on the distance ahead of you today, not the distance that you want to run down the road.
Baby steps...all along the way....
