This week while I was reviewing my goals and my successes and even my downfalls I realized that there is a big gaping hole that I have been avoiding that mad a big difference in having success in my goals. I began logging 10,000 steps as a minimum per day after my back fusion. That was 4 miles a day for me and 28 miles a week. That was a year ago this month. I had my back fused so I was only allowed to walk on my treadmill because it was an even surface. Any trip or fall could damage all the work I had done with my back fusion.
In one year I have gained 10lbs back that don’t want to come off at all. I do Insanity almost every single day. How can I not be losing any weight? Is it because I am not eating enough calories or is it because I haven’t been hitting those 10,000 steps every day. A year ago I was working myself to death and now I am not pushing myself as hard as I was. I don’t force myself to go until my feet hurt. I don’t push until my thighs ache. I don’t dig in deep to kick my own butt. I realized this week that I have a date with my treadmill and we are going to go 28 miles every week.
This has been the video that I have been watching over and over and over again to get me motivated.
Art Williams said it best. “All you can do is all you can do, but all you can do is enough.”
This week I have mastered my menu planning and my Beachbody workouts. I will be working on my water intake and logging my 10,000 steps a day. I am also starting up another Beachbody Challenge Group. If you are interested drop me a line. The ladies in my first group are doing amazing!
Have you every realized you aren’t doing everything you can?
