Just Do It

Just Do It

When I woke up today I was not in the mood to do much of anything but lay on the couch or stay in bed!!!!  I am just mentally and physically drained in addition to having major shoulder/hip pain.  As the morning went on I realized that I needed to make myself go through the motions of  the basics of what needed to get done or I was just gonna feel worse and be mad at myself later. So, I got my workout clothes on and headed up to boot camp class with Monica. Thankfully I love that class because it sets the tone for my week. I struggled in there today and didn’t workout at my best – but I was there and did the best I could and that’s all that matters on days like today.  Sometimes when our mind and body is screaming just go back to bed but your soul is telling you that you will feel better –  that’s when you JUST DO IT and just do what you can and are able. When you really listen to your body and don’t let your mind tell you that you can’t – you will thank yourself later! :)


Because what I’ve learned is……….


And then later in the day you can always follow this……….

and YES I took a nap today. :)


Here’s hoping to a more productive day tomorrow! :)

Hope you had a great Monday !!!!  :)

About Carman

36 year old military wife of 18 years and stay at home mom to 4 incredible kids (3 girls ages 17, 11, 11 and our son is 6). After my 4th, and final baby, I decided I wanted to be more active, healthier, happier, and to be an example to my kids. I joined Weight Watchers and started using the Points Plus program to learn portion control, moderation, and develop healthier habits. I also used the dietSNAPS app to track my meals and it was such a life changer for me to literally *see* what I was putting in my body! Cyndi, Lexy and I created this blog to be accountability partners and that has been a huge key to this journey! I love to cook and I love converting my favorite recipes into a healthier version for my family to enjoy! I love the after effects of exercising :) I love challenging myself to fitness goals to change things up and in doing so I have run numerous 5K/10K's, several half marathons, one full 26.2 marathon, and a Tough Mudder. I love circuit training, weight training, and running sprints. My goal is to inspire others to take their health seriously, and to show how small changes can lead to big results.
