I just need to workout more…

⁣𝘈𝘤𝘵𝘶𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘺 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘥𝘰𝘯’𝘵. ⁣

More is not always better. Better is better. ⁣
⁣
After sharing a before and after picture along with encouragement that eating more, more consistently was a huge key in my progress, I got the question as to whether I’m more active now and burning more calories. ⁣
⁣
In fact the opposite is true. ⁣
⁣
I used to be so guilty of believing the answer to weight loss was exercising more and was always the queen of cardio. ⁣
⁣
I would typically go to CrossFit and do a quick at home workout 6 days a week, and was teaching 5-6 fitness classes a week (doing the workout with class). ⁣
⁣
I was hungry all the time, tired, and couldn’t figure out why my weight wouldn’t budge and my hard work didn’t show. ⁣
⁣
Then the pandemic hit, and my workouts went down to once a day, usually an hour a day. ⁣
⁣
Slowly, I started to make progress. ⁣
⁣
It was easier to stick to my calorie goals. ⁣
My body was able to recover better. ⁣
And, my self inflicted stress levels dropped way down. ⁣

⁣
Follow a progressive, safely designed, effective program. Give your body time to recover and repair, and back off on the stress. ⁣
⁣
Create more habits that will help you be more consistent. ⁣
⁣
I’d rather you be 90% consistent, happy and healthy….⁣
⁣
Than 50% extreme, burnt out, and starting again on Monday. ⁣
⁣
Consistency wins every time.
