So maybe you can relate to this…
You get invited to a last minute beach or river trip and your first thought is "Crap!!! I have to be in a bathing suit in front of everyone!?"
Then you start to stress about it, worrying about how awful you're going to look in your bathing suit. What are people going to think when they see you like this?
And then you start thinking about the group photos. You'll try to hide in the back when possible, but you really don't want your squishy body shared all over Facebook or highlighted in a photo album somewhere.
You start to regret all those weekend binges and that pint of ice cream that you had last night following your stressful day at work...
So you decide to hit the gym hard and start a crash diet of yogurt, almonds, and those hundred calorie snack packs. Because starving yourself for the next few weeks is bound to help you lose some extra weight, right?
Only you find that your body isn't dropping the fluff like it use to a few years ago...
After a week of living off rabbit food and spending endless hours on the elliptical, the scale has barely budged. Now you're more frustrated than when you started!
You must just lack the motivation and nothing seems to work. So why bother anymore? It may just be time to give up forever...
So you tell yourself, "I don’t really want to go on that trip anyway. I have so much to do!" #lieswetellourselves
Well here's the thing. This happens to EVERYONE as they get older... as in you don't have as much free time as you did when you were in your 20's.
You have kids, a mortgage, a boss, responsibilities and you've managed to put yourself on the back burner.
You went from alcohol hangovers to FOOD hangovers... now it's hanging over your pants.
You remember how to workout, but things just don't feel the same anymore and the results don’t seem to be coming as easily as they used to.
You just wish you had a better plan of what to do. A plan that actually works so you could stop playing the guessing game. A plan you can finally stick to and feel confident about so you could stop feeling like a failure.
If this sounds like you, you’re not alone. As a busy, driven woman, it’s only natural that life’s stresses and burdens prevent you from getting the fit, toned, healthy body you desire.
