I know I’m coming to you with this post a little (okay a lot) later than usual, but I couldn’t find a quote or words of wisdom that I wanted to share this week yet, so I put it off until I was able to think of something that struck me.
I wasn’t feeling well for a couple of weeks, so this weekend has marked my first few times back to my regularly scheduled sweat sessions in around two weeks. I have to say there’s nothing like a Cycle Burn (spinning combined with strength training) class to make you painfully aware that your level of fitness has slipped a little.
I was discouraged at first (and still am slightly) because I hate regression. It sucks to have to work twice as hard to make it back to the same place you already were. It can be depressing and discouraging if you let it, but I’m choosing to think of it as a challenge that nothing worth having comes easy and I hope you’ll look at the challenges in your life in the same light!
