Man, it feels so good to be back in the swing of things!
Anyone who knows me that 2014 wasn’t a good year for me, in terms of personal development. My father passed away just days before his 65th birthday and I remained in a fog for the rest of that calendar year. I tried, a couple of times, to get back to working out, but it only lasted a couple of weeks or so. I thought I’d found something with P90X3, but even that couldn’t hook me like I expected it to.
And, come May, I usually run 3x per week until late October. Want to know how many times I ran last year? SEVEN TIMES, TOTAL! I told y’all I was in a funk, y’all!
I didn’t even hit the workouts hard before going to Hawaii. I was just stuck.
This year, after returning from Hawaii, I decided to finally shake off this stank, and get back after it. I started with shorter workouts for 2-3 times per week. From there, I upped the cardio to 5 times a week for about a month. And then I dove back into ChaLean Extreme. That’s been a workout I’ve relied on for many years now. The length of workouts, combined with my love of all things Chalene Johnson, was the winning combo I needed!
I just finished the 90-day program and I feel great! Not only do my clothes all fit wonderfully again, my self esteem has normalized. I’m a few weeks into my Couch to 5k podcasts and am back to looking forward to my post-workout high too.
The biggest decisions I have these days is which program to do next. I might do another round of ChaLEAN Extreme, or I might reunite with Les Mills Pump again.
Ahh, it’s good to be back!
Have you ever fallen into a huge workout funk? How did you shake off the dust? Would love to hear from y’all!
