Happy Tuesday! It’s time for another edition of Tuesday Topics. This week’s Tuesday Topic: Ask someone who’s been struggling to share their story.. Remember to link-up with Kim and Zenaida and the bottom of this post.
We all know that fitness can help both mentally and physically, but sometimes we can find ourselves on the “struggle bus”. For this post, I want to share my fitness struggle bus story.
It’s no secret that I love fitness – Peloton, OTF, running, etc. I love being able to take a variety of classes to get in a great workout, but for the past few months, I’ve been struggling. For so many years I always had a race to train for so I always felt like I was working toward a goal. Lately although I am getting in my workouts, I haven’t been inspired and I find myself just kind ongoing through the motions. I definitely feel kind of “stuck” at times.
The fitness “struggle bus” definitely isn’t fun, but yesterday I decided on a way I can feel like I’m back on track. Two OTF members that I follow on Instagram decided to start at #5for50 Challenge. The focus is 50 days of intentional steps to make stronger habits. You pick 5 habits that you want to focus on throughout the next 50 day. The categories are fitness, hydration, nutrition, personal development and professional development. I love the variety of the categories. Here are my habits for the challenge:
I thought about the 5 habits I want to focus on and officially started the challenge yesterday. I’m looking forward to ending the Summer and entering Fall on a positive note. My hope is that by focusing on these habits for 50 days will make it easier for the habits to be part of my daily routine moving forward, and that this will help me get me off the fitness struggle bus!
Tell Me: Have you ever had a ride on the fitness struggle bus?
