workout on strike

I am skipping the gym today, or at least postponing until the afternoon. For the last month and a half I have sacrificed community, productivity, and time spent mothering my kids to make this a priority in my week, and I am highly discouraged that I have seen absolutely NO results on the scale. I know muscle weighs more than fat, and I’m likely building more muscle, but COME ON.

I’m not quitting for good or giving up in any way. I’m just feeling particularly overwhelmed right with all the things I need to get done, so I’m giving my gym the finger in order to check some things off my list. I need to feel like I’m accomplishing SOMETHING today.

  1. totally understand!
    I joined a gym a few weeks ago, and can feel the difference in how my jeans fit, but I’m with you – come on, scale.. catch up with us already.

    And as a fellow mom, I know how demanding it can be fitting in the time slots.

    good luck with it all.
