Put your titties on the glass! Now that I have your attention... just kidding, I’m not flashing you anything except my work out shorts and a major flare up of PCOS. I have been working my ASS off for 3-4 ish months now, and I feel like days like today side track me from my goals.
Let me explain ... I have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. It can cause cysts, effects your hormone imbalance which causes weight gain, swelling, hair growth, depression, AND causes infertility 😬 I feel like with exercise I’m in an uphill battle, both ways, with one boot, and the boot’s on fire, I’m on fire, and there’s no coffee left Some days I see definition and my stomache flab goes down, and then days like today I’m so bloated I look and this is a MAJOR confidence killer. When I see this and feel so gross and bloated, I lean to food for comfort and get into a rut....FAST!
So how do I get out of these days? The truth is some days I don’t...or feel like I can’t, and eat junk food.... and other days I remind myself how far I’ve come since starting and go do something that turns my days around! I go for a run, exercise, play with the kids, read a book, or even have a cup of coffee in silence during nap time and reflect.
If there’s one thing I am majorly grateful for lately; it’s the support and that I have surrounded myself with! @ pushes me out of my comfort zone, and the instructors feel like family...who yell at you....with strobe lights...and you get 😬... and @ and their group classes, and 21 day challenge, make kicking my ass....fun? I forget I’m working out, and getting out of the house for an hour of me time is SO NICE
So basically my bad days are still going to come, like today, but I have started to to lean towards something that isn’t in a which is major! This quote has spoken to me in a million ways...I’m not trying to be my old self, I’m bettering this kick ass version I am now!
