Confession time. Served straight up. If only it were tequila…
Four weeks ago I was all excited about the Best Body Bootcamp and I stuck with the workouts for 2 weeks despite being sick. I enjoyed the workouts a great deal. But I’ve fallen completely off the horse. (I think the normal term is wagon, but I’ve spent lots of my life riding horses and almost no time in wagons so I’m going with what I know.)
I haven’t worked out in almost 2 weeks. I have excuses. Don’t we all when this happens? The truth is that life just got in the way.
I haven’t kept it a secret that I’m struggling with things in my personal life this year. It’s come to a head now. Without getting in to the details it boils down to the end of a relationship (not a marriage), not being treated how I deserve to be treated, losing friends in the process, and trying to move on. It’s not easy. I’m moving this week from a place I’ve called home for over 5 years. A place I love and worked hard on. I’m equal parts depressed, hurt, and angry and I cry a lot. Eating and sleeping are a struggle and I have no heart for working out right now.
To those who are concerned, I am talking to someone. I don’t mean this to be shocking, just honest. It is a very hard time for me.
I will get back on the horse. I always do when I fall off. (See? Horse reference paying off here!) I plan to start over the bootcamp workouts when I am ready and go through all 8 weeks. Right now though, working out my body has to take a back seat to my working out my life.
Sorry to all my fellow bootcampers for not being able to give it my all.
