Wild women work out! Why? Because they value their health and they want to live strong, healthy and productive lives!!
So maybe you are having trouble working out four times a week or an hour at a clip. Sometimes we get all "gun ho", vowing to spend five days at the gym for two hours. Okay, that lasts about a week --tops-- then you stop and feel lousy about yourself. How about some realistic, reasonable beginnings that will build success upon success?
Start off with 30 minutes 3x/week. We can do just about anything for 30 minutes. 5 minute warm up, 10 minutes upper body, 10 minutes lower body, and 5 minute cool down/ stretches. Get that nailed down regularly in your calendar schedule. Then add another day, or a longer workout instead.
See, the point is, you have to commit to it --really consistently commit to the long haul. But start slow and realistically for your life and time ability. Give yourself permission to go the strong, slow and steady path that will lead to small success after small success.
You can do it. It will take time, tenacity and faith. It will be a marathon, not a sprint. Do what it takes one day at a time, consistently. We're talkin' crockpot fortitude here, not microwave well-I'll-try-this-week-maybe fleeting thoughts.
