This was a bad week for me in general and my overall well-being definitely suffered. Unfortunately, so did my workout schedule. My posts are a week behind because of including an introductory post, so you might remember that I hinted at my exhausted, drained, and miserable feelings in a recent post. However, rather than feel worse about myself for letting my emotions get the better of me this week, I am simply going to focus on how I can improve next week.
I am not going to let others have so much impact over my life that they cause me to have setbacks in achieving my overall life goals. Being healthy and fit matters to me so much more than they do and I need to always remember that and be mindful of what really matters to me. Usually I can overcome bad days, but the situation I’m currently in goes so far beyond that. However, I am trying not to dwell on negative feelings and just let it go until all of my efforts to change my situation finally pay off (and they will!).
In terms of my challenge this week, all of the BeFit videos were the same as last week. Luckily there are so many Blogilates videos posted on YouTube that I can easily find new ones to complete each day. As I mentioned, I didn’t do very well this week in terms of consistency. In fact, I only worked out four times total for the whole week and I skipped doing my workouts simply because I didn’t feel like doing them. Usually I can push myself through, but this week I just couldn’t. However, next week, I am determined to have a better update for you!
Have you ever been in a negative situation that impacted your overall well-being? How did you cope?
Below is the BeFit in 90 Week 2 workout schedule. In addition to completing these videos (most days), I also added in 10 minutes of Blogilates videos with Cassey Ho to work on my core and overall flexibility.

The combination of videos was fun today (yes, even the yoga one!).

Today was a rest day, so I did some active recovery pilates videos:
BeFit in 90: Day 11
I mentioned in my previous update that the 8 pound weights I used to complete the arm video last time weren’t heavy enough. I used 10 pounds this week, which felt much better. Maybe I’ll be in the 12 pound territory soon! Watch out, Shaun T!

BeFit in 90: Day 13
Saturday rest days are my favourite! I’m going to build them into my Tone It Up schedule for the next two weeks, which I will have to create on my own.
BeFit in 90: Day 14
Today was focused on cardio and yoga, so as payback for not being diligent with my workouts, I got a double whammy of punishment in the form of things I don’t like doing.
