Last week in our newsletter we talked about our personal struggle with working out during the holidays. Many of you replied back saying thank you and appreciated our honesty because you are struggling too.
You are not alone.
As personal trainers this is hard for us to not only to talk about but admit to ourselves. These past few
weeks months our workouts have been a little nonexistent.
Crazy for us to sit back and think about.
We never thought this would happen to us.
We remember our second older sister, Jen, who was a former bodybuilder, tell us –“Just you wait. There will be a time in your life when your career takes over. Or something else happens and you somehow get out of the routine of working out. And before you know it days go by…then weeks.” At that moment we were like, “No way. We love working out too much to never have time for it.”
And here we are telling you guys we have lost our workout mojo.
We are still active with our daily walks and playing with Jax and Madison. But actually “working out” has been very limited.
We promised each other when we got home for Christmas we would get up every morning to workout.
Well, we have been home almost a week and we have yet to get up. We both sleep instead.
Maybe it’s from the lack of sleep…Lori with a newborn and most recently working very late nights for weeks on our new projects. We are not here to make excuses. We just needed to talk about this in a place we knew we could. A place where we would get support and love 🙂
Now that it is out in the open we are ready to just let it go.
It is what it is.
We will keep finding time to be active when we can during the holiday. That is what we want you to do too.
Maybe you are struggling like us to workout. We suggest you find little movements throughout your day to keep you moving. Maybe that’s by standing more, cleaning the house or taking short walks here and there.
Even though we are not actually working out we aren’t just sitting around doing nothing. Nope. This is not about being lazy, but being honest with ourselves. Our plan is to move when we can. And we know that 2015 will be a great year for us to get back in shape. Will you join us? We are excited for the new year!
What do you struggle with the most during the holidays? How do you fit in staying active during the holidays?
Have you lost your workout mojo before? How did you get it back?
What are you looking forward to in the new year?
