Today I pushed myself harder than I have for the last 3ish years. Before having Fen, I would spend 5-6 nights per week in the gym for 2+ hours. I was in great shape, lifting heavy, and thriving with my training programs. Now, I’m usually rushed and exhausted and there are a million excuses I could give as to why I can’t push myself the same way that I used to - but the raw truth of it is this - it all comes down to choices. The choice to get up early and shuffle my whole day around (or rush like mad) to get a good workout in. The choice to eat more fruits + veggies + smoothies + salads and food prep instead of just eating something quick and easy because I’m starving & so, so tired. The choice to stop babying myself because I’m postpartum and because of my knee injury.
I felt a shift today... and I felt like the old me, the me before getting pregnant and losing my mojo. Little by little, I’m getting my drive back and motivating myself to destroy my workouts and actually be proud of what I’m doing. The old me is in there, she’s just modified now - upgraded. Having a baby and experiencing incredible changes has made me appreciate the gym and lifting sooo much more.
Today I hit sumo deads 165x5 a couple times (PR since pregnancy)
Then I did some semi-heavy hip thrusts, extensions, stiff leg deads, and core. 🏼
I worked HARD. I had the best 2 hour workout I’ve had in years. I felt like me .. the new, upgraded me. .
