Total Gym, Total Mom Challenge – Week 6/7 Update

Tweet about this on Twitter0Pin on Pinterest0Share on Facebook0Share on Google+0Email this to someone

The last two weeks have been extremely rough for a number of reasons. My schedule, family activities and all of the little things in between have really knocked me off course with my workouts with the Total Gym. It’s a sad truth, but I’ve fallen back into the role of putting everyone’s needs before my own and my dedication to fitness has taken a back seat.

But I’m not giving up, I’m a fighter and I’m going to continue to fight for myself, just at a much slower pace than I had originally planned. For my last week of the challenge, I’m going to give myself one last push to lose at least one pound. Small goals are easier to attain right? From there on out, I will continue my workouts because I have no excuse not to. The best part of owning the Total Gym is the fact that it’s a HOME gym. I always have the equipment accessible, day or night.

    I myself want to take a challenge to get into better shape. This one sounds amazing though! I might want to consider checking this one out myself.

    I’ve had a hard time fitting in my workouts for the past 10 days or so. I’m really trying not to beat myself up and just remember to park far away from entrances, take stairs when possible and choose good food.

    None of us are perfect and I’ve decided that when I do better it’s better than doing nothing at all. :)

    I myself have had a lot of trouble fitting in working out this week. Thing get crazy sometimes. The best time that I have found is when I get the kids in bed and just before those late night cravings set in, to get some working out done!

    It’s hard to find time to exercise when you’re as busy as a mother, caregiver, wife, cook, housekeeper, etc. Just do the best you can and that’s all anybody can ask of you :)

    Good luck!

    Its hard to find that time…especially at home! Hang in there. And if you don’t find the time, at least you can use your total gym as a clothing drying rack. :-) (or send it to me…)

    This seems like the busiest, least motivating time of year and I pack on the pounds. I think the most important thing, like you mention, is to just not give up because that’s when things can really begin to spiral. Thanks for the update and inspiration to continue.

    I’m glad to see you aren’t giving up Cat! Don’t be discouraged that the schedule isn’t exactly what you planned. I bet with your perseverance, you’ll soon get back into the routine you were working on before.
