Julia, Alyse & a BLT - Week 11 - Priorities

Hello Friends,


Thanks for checking in again. In the past two weeks a lot has changed for me. Classes are over, I cut down my hours at my full time job and I picked up another part time job farming. I only made it to the gym once this week, but I did complete 3 high intensity workouts that Julia provided for me. I am really proud of myself for still working out 4 times even though I had a really busy schedule and easily could have used it as an excuse not to, but I chose to prioritize going to the gym. In this world everyone is busy and I don't feel as though being "busy" is a valid excuse anymore. When someone says "oh sorry I couldn't or didn't do that I was too busy", I find it to have the underlying message of "you/that task doesn't matter to me". In this day in age when everyone is busy people prioritize doing the things they care about.


I am really proud of myself that I have made the gym a priority and I am not ashamed to say that I will turn down plans with friends because I don't just have to go to the gym but want to. When I do want to make plans with friends I prioritize it and then figure out a way to still get a workout in, even if it means getting up at 6am. I am never too busy to do something, if I can't do I haven't prioritized it and if life does happen to really get in the way, I can still always find 30min to do my circuit that kicks my butt each time. I think this is one of the things that I love most about the program, it has taught me how to prioritize going to the gym and make it apart of my schedule. I no longer have any wishy washy excuses about why I shouldn't have to go to the gym, it is a set part of my day and I can always fit it into my schedule with ease and excitement. I have even been finding if I don't get a workout in I feel gross and antsy.
