Ugh, another day in the gym.
Your muscles are sore, the weight is heavy, you’re sweaty, out of breath, and feel like crap. You’ve been at it for a month, and although the scale is moving, you’re still struggling.
Ugh, another run.
Your shins hurt. Your calves hurt. Your chest hurts from the heavy breathing. Your throat hurts from wheezing. You start to question what the heck you’re doing, and why you’re doing it.
Ugh, another home workout.
You’re lying on the floor of your living room while your dog licks your face. Your legs feel like jelly. Your arms like toothpicks. Your kids are wondering “why is Mommy playing dead on the floor?” You quietly swear at yourself while thinking “is it worth it?”
I have two truths, one you want to hear, and one you won’t:
1) YES, it is absolutely worth it.
2) NO, it doesn’t really get any easier.
Don’t worry though, I’m going to tell you why this is freaking great.
