Lost Track

I just realized my self care went out the window since I came to Montana. On our trip out here I tried to keep at my routine and run or walk, but it ended up not working out for me. I have done my couch to 5k/10k maybe three times since arriving here in May.

So last night I laid out my workout clothing on the couch to help motivate myself into running. Well it worked but it took up until noon to actually go and run.

I procrastinated for the longest time by doing school with the kids, eating breakfast, cleaning the camper, and doing a barre class with YouTube. The channel I used was “Lazy Dancer Tips”. Who knew barre could be fun.

This run was easy. I think the barre lesson helped with my endurance.

I guess that barre class was all I needed because the next thing I knew I was out there running and back in no time.

I have this motivational app on my phone called “I am” and one of the quotes was “You must take care of you in order to take care of others”. This quote hit me hard. It is something that I have always said to people who do a lot for others but nothing for themselves.

Now I realized a long time ago I forgot how to take care of myself and this quote got forgotten for a while, but I am now determined to make exercise my priority. This seems to help my mental well being and I am better equipped to handle my stress. The only problem is that once we start moving again I’ll lose my motivation again.

In the end I need to exercise for my peace of mind and not to lose weight. Once I focus on my mental health more then fat loss it well help to keep going. The shirt I bought from a small business called “Savage Babe”. I wear it because it is comfortable and I need to remind myself that yes I am a savage babe. I am not just a mother and wife.

Here is a link to the store page. This is not an affiliate link so I am not being compensated if you decide to buy anything. I like the product because it is comfortable. The bras are not too tight and leggings do not leave marks on your body. When you exercise you do not need to pull them up everytime you move.

I will be posting about running at least once a week. I won’t go into too much detail but I am hoping this will help me stay focused on my mental health and accountable.

I hope you all have a great night/day and this post helps someone out there with changing their mindset to mental wellness rather than the fat loss. I know for myself I get so unmotivated to exercise when I do not see the results. Heres to not focusing on weight.

      1. I believe the vision of running should not equate with a mere fat loss, fat loss is something which automatically is achieved while in the process.
        But, I have a personal experience regarding this, once I lost 16 kg within 30 days.
        I put myself from overweight to underweight category hahaaha

        But, now I am in my stable weigh category.

      2. Congratulations that is good news. I will push at it again. I was doing pretty for a while then I got out of the routine due to traveling then it became hard to find the right time, then I started to make excuses. Cleaning for a lady today going to print out a sheet I can color when I exercise and see what happens.
