To say this week hasn’t been my most productive would be an understatement!
Prior to this week I had two weeks off for Easter break and decided to be a little more relaxed with what I ate – our house was full of chocolate. I kept up with my workouts and running over the Easter holiday so was feeling fine about the fact I’d indulged a little.
This week saw my return to work and the return of my usual routine which I usually crave so much when I’m off. My motivation had disappeared and I struggled.
Monday was a bank holiday. I spent it with family and didn’t work out.
Wednesday was my best day this week. Felt good and headed to the gym after work. Ran my quickest 5k on a treadmill (26.06) and then did 7k on the bike. No weights as I was trying to shift the Easter bloat!
Thursday after work I headed to my friends to see her and her little boys. While I was there my mum sent me a text suggesting a trip to a local shop and a McDonald’s for tea. I obviously agreed. No gym again.
Saturday/Sunday involved lots of DIY in the garden and chilling out. I got out today for a quick 3k which is better than nothing.
So all in all not a great week. I’m not feeling bad about it. I’m going to ensure I get to the gym this week and smash it.
I’m hoping that sharing my weekly workouts with you will give me some motivation to better myself each week. I want to be accountable for my choices and by writing them here I feel like I’m taking responsibility for them.
How was your week? Still struggling with motivation like me or are you right back on it after the Easter break?
Leave me a comment, I’d love to know how you’re doing!
