My boyfriend and I began again yesterday after taking a week’s break from Insanity to celebrate his birthday (and several other birthdays, actually).
I was disappointed and annoyed when I realized we haven’t finished the 60 day plan all the way through yet, but then I was super proud last night when we went a full 28 minutes (out of the 40 minute workout) before calling it.
I also then realized that it’s not really that important that we took a week break. After all, I still did some yoga, played Xbox Kinect, and tried to do some walking even though we didn’t do any Insanity workouts. Not only that, but I feel like it’s more important that we are not giving up, but simply starting again and plowing forward with our goals instead of wallowing in our usual frustrations, disappointments, and instead, we’re just doing it.
So, I guess that’s the lesson that I learned – stop talking and just do the damn workout. It’s like 30 minutes of hell per day for a whole new body and a whole new life. So, just do it because you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
Oh, and the aftermath always makes me feel accomplished, strong, happy, and proud, too, so that’s all the more to look forward to!
How do you stay consistent and on track with your fitness goals?
If you fall off the workout wagon, how easy is it for you to get back on and, if not, how do you motivate yourself to do it anyway?
