Are you an all or nothing kind of person?
When you start a workout regimen, do you exercise every day and automatically start to eat healthier, saying no to sweets and getting all your fruits and veggies in?
If you are like that, then I am definitely envious!
I recently returned to a workout that I love — it’s called Torque and includes all kinds of exercises like burpees, battle ropes, push-ups — lots of strength-based moves coupled with bursts of cardio.
I like this form of exercise because it challenges me. I have to take each exercise one step at a time and just do the best I can. As the Torque trainer and owner Lewis says: “baby steps.”
So while I am “all in,” I’m giving myself permission to take the steps needed to do this more strenuous workout in a way that pushes me, yet avoids injury.
I’m mixing in some walking and running, too, to prepare for the Makeshift 5k, which is coming up on Oct. 8! If you haven’t signed up yet, please RSVP to the Facebook event.
I’m also working on my eating habits. I’m trying to eat more fruits and veggies at each meal. Carbs and sweets are always my sore spot, but I am determined to get better and better at choosing what’s healthy for my body. I know that when I overeat or eat too much of certain foods, I simply feel icky. So it’s not even about trying to be “good” or “bad” — it’s about making choices that make me feel my best.
It’s all about baby steps for me right now!
