Day 69- HARDbody challenge

I am back in full force today with my workouts! I just completed a 3 mile run and the below workout. I modified the push-ups and did them on my knees just to ease into shoulder stuff… I have to say, the past 2 weeks have been tough for me. If I’m not working out, I don’t eat as healthy. It’s all mental, that’s for sure! So I have gained 2 lbs back and 1.3% body fat back. Can you believe it’s that easy to gain back? The main reason is that my body hasn’t maintained my lower weight and body fat long enough to be ready for a break. If you maintain a weight etc for 3 months, your body becomes accustom to it and would probably be fine taking a break. However, on top of not doing the workouts, I just didn’t feed my body the right foods. I slacked… UGH!

But here we are! Back at it and more determined than before. I want this bad enough to keep to it and push myself. I have to be in a bathing suit this coming weekend. I am not too worried but still not as comfortable as I would like to feel. I will feel comfortable soon enough!!!
