Pre-Covid, and even the first many months of it, I didn’t count a “workout” if it was less than 45 minutes and/or I didn’t break a huge sweat.
Lately, I’ve been so busy with (work… insert excuse) that I barely leave the house during the day, let alone prioritize movement.
Anyone else find themselves changing the standard they used to set for themselves of what a “workout” is? And finding that they’re ok about breaking down this judgement?
Chime in if you’re with me!
Congrats @Margie ! I'm so glad you are celebrating your wins for what they are! A workout is whatever you want it to be, and the fact that your are redefining what that means for you is amazing. I recently signed up for the gym and I realized that I missed it so much, it felt so good to be in the space. While there, I didn't go in with any plans or goals. I went to listen to my body and I am so grateful for it. I only went as hard as my body wanted to and left when my body wanted to leave. I also didn't time how long I was there for and I'm actually glad I didn't. I found myself smiling through my mask the whole session lol. I'm with you on redefining workout-wins and I'm so happy for you ❤️
I may have to join you and @Sarah_E in her yoga classes! I'm not big on yoga, but I love working out for what it does for you mentally (stress reliever, energizer, form of meditation, etc). Updates to come 😁
omg yes @danielle @Margie I often make the excuse of "oh I can't workout because I only have a few minutes" or "oh I can't commit every day this week so I'll try next week". But any efforts are good efforts, and the body will thank us for it! I'm so glad Danielle that working out a few days out the week is working, that is actually my goal for this week! This really inspired me to keep going, thank you 😁
