The truth about stress

Wondering where I’ve been the past couple of weeks?  I’ve been stressed.  It’s left my unmotivated to do much.  I’ve still be working out because HELLO that’s a big stress reliever.  I think if I didn’t workout, I would be a bundle of nerves and anxiety.  When I’m stressed or in a foul mood, the blog is really the thing that suffers.

I'm having a moment with #stress but I'm fighting the good fight. #fitfluential #fitfam #sweatpink #motivation

It’s easy to talk about all the great things going on in life but when things aren’t so great sometimes it’s just hard to find the words.  It’s hard to find the words to motivate and inspire others to be the best versions of themselves too.

Everyone goes through rough times and when you’re in it, you just feel like it’s the worst thing that has ever happened. But when you step out of it, sometimes you see it wasn’t a big deal at all.

I’m human.  I have really great days and I have really bad days.  The best piece of advice I can give to you is just to keep going.  When things aren’t going too well, it’s easy to say I’m not going to do anything.  The most important thing is to keep going.  I haven’t really been jumping up and down about doing my workouts lately, but I still did them.  I know that if I didn’t go out there to do those workouts, that would have been a regret I would have spent too much time talking about.

And in the end, I may have been tired or sluggish when I started, but I still finished.  And there’s nothing better than making it through a workout that I never thought I would begin.

On a good note: I’m heading to Denver on Friday for the Revel Rockies Marathon this weekend.  I’m super excited to go back to a place I never said I would return.  Last year I ran the RnR Denver half marathon and I just didn’t really enjoy the city but now I’m learning that’s because I was trapped downtown.  We didn’t venture out.  I’m a nature girl so I can’t wait to get out to run the trails in Denver and Boulder.  I’ll talk more about my trip soon.
