Now y’all know this time of the year gets crazy for me. If you follow me on Instagram
, you’ve seen my all too often, “on the road again” posts. I’ve been living in my car going back a forth to the Gulf Coast and to Jackson. No, seriously. I think half of my wardrobe is still in my car. To say life has been hectic would be such an understatement.
|That’s my travel buddy back there in his kennel. He hates traveling in that thing.
With that being said, I wanted to talk to y’all about consistency in your workouts and diet. Over the past month, I had really hit a plateau. I’d either stay at the exact same weight from week to week. Or gain about two pounds, then have lost them the next. It was so frustrating, but when I stopped to think, I realized that I had not been being very consistent. With all the traveling I had been doing, I had been cheating on my diet more often and missing workouts. My cheats weren’t huge. Just a little bite here and there or a small portion. Nothing necessarily wrong with that. I firmly believe you have to indulge every once in a while or you’ll go crazy. You can’t deprive yourself forever. It’s just not possible. There’s nothing wrong with having a small cheat, except during this time, it was keeping me from hitting my next goal.
So last week, I decided I was hitting it hard. A perfect week. No cheating, no missed workouts, and stick to my diet 100%. Guess what happened! IT WORKED! There really is so much to be said for consistency in many aspects of life. I’m starting perfect week #2 with strength and determination.
Health is having a good relationship with yourself, you can’t cheat on a relationship and expect it to work.
Also, I’ve been posting a lot about health and fitness lately. I will continue to post about fashion, but this is a lifestyle blog also. Health and fitness is very large part of my lifestyle, and I love to learn more and more about it and share it will y’all! Hope y’all don’t mind! 🙂
P.S. I take back everything I said about Miley Cyrus. There’s a difference in being yourself and doing things just for shock value. There are other ways to separate yourself from your past while showing some self respect. I like your music, Miles, but where is your pride?
