I am learning the fine art of maintaining physical fitness while also having a life.
I always said I had it easy in my fitness journey because I live alone so can keep the kitchen stocked with food that supports clean eating, without any one else bringing temptations into the house (I do enough tempting of myself, and yes am finishing the last of the peppermint mocha freeze in this morning’s protein shake…don’t judge! Lol), and with a steady work schedule can easily get to the gym when I want. Letting people into my life is proving to be a challenge; though I am still getting to the gym, and still eating fairly decently. The struggle is in living the 5-6 meal a day lifestyle. I am finding on weekends (work weeks I can still maintain control) I am back to three meals a day.
So the quest for balance continues.
I know I can’t out train a bad diet, but can you out train a mediocre diet?
This week in addition to 4 days of lifting, I need to add more cardio. I’m thinking Zumba Tuesday evenings, Friday noon, and Saturday morning; plus P90x Intervals or Rev Abs Monday and Wednesday mornings. And MAYBE P90x core Thursday morning…we’ll see.
