Some of you all may know I used to weight train and would be at the gym 5-6 days a week. With school and work that hasn't been happening but working out is an outlet for me that I needed after a stressful day. I've gone back to making it a priority after about 3-4 weeks off. which wow that a long time haha but even now I'm lucky if I'm making it to the gym 3 days a weeks. And I just wanted to say, whether you go 1 day a week or all 7 days or somewhere in-between it is OKAY. We are all at different points in life and honestly life hits hard at times. I had to take a step back and now that I am back I can't do near what I used to do. old warm up was 45 minutes on the stair master, now I'm lucky if I get to 10 and that's OKAY! Don't get down on yourself is what I have to keep reminding myself. You have to condition your body to get where you want to be and if you aren't where you want to be right now in this point of life that's OKAY! just a little heart to heart about loving yourself and where you are in the process! xx Allison
