We all have had those moments when we are going to work out, get in shape and lose weight. It lasts for a little bit then you go back to popcorn and binging Netflix. I have tried it all.. boxing, yoga, barr, beach body. I have fun doing them but then I get bored or busy. I’m not sure which one yet.

My mom told me she found a 20-minute workout that she’s going to do every day. It had lunges, jumping jacks, and crunches on it. She did it and felt super accomplished until she scrolled down and realized she had to do it 3x with 60-second rest in between. So she took a break and decided she was going to finish later that night. (Not quite sure that’s how it works) But good on her that she started. It’s the hardest part.

That is unfortunately my MO. I workout for like 3 months and then if I miss a few days in a row, I quit. I am back on track right now though. I have a pool party on Saturday so hopefully, I can lose 20lbs in the next 4 days. I mean crazier things have happened right? If you need me I am eating broccoli and riding the bike in my garage that feels like a sauna!

Shawn started to work out one time when he decided that he was going to treat himself with a trainer and the trainer ended up killing him. He couldn’t even drive home because he couldn’t press the gas pedal.

Where is the balance? I need to find it. I always tell myself, even if I get out there one time every other week, that’s better than not working out at all right? RIGHT? At any rate, fall will be here before we know it and I will be able to cover myself in yoga pants and sweatshirts!
