Had a realisation this week about the stress I’ve been putting my body through. I’ve only had a chance to workout three times in the space of two weeks, although my nutrition has been 80% on point, and I still feel reasonably defined. For the past few years I’ve worked out pretty much 6 days a week, except on holiday or when I was ill (although in Mallorca last year I was still doing morning HIIT workouts and 12km hikes but this was “resting” #lol). And out of these six workouts, at least two would be half hearted and, honestly, pretty crap which would just make me feel even worse. So I’ve made the decision to only workout 4 times a week, when I know I truly want to workout. I’d rather absolutely smash four workouts and feel amazing, than do six when I’m tired and moody. I’m gonna be all about the quality not quantity. And I think this two week mini break (from exercise at least, with working it’s certainly not been relaxing) has done my mind a world of good. Mind over matter.
