Day 6 of 25 Days of Christmas: A (Modifiable) Winter Workout

So I wanted to put together an easier more chill version of the previous holiday workout I posted, because after attempting to complete it for 5 days I’m finally ready to admit I bit off more than I could chew with that routine! Below is what I think is the perfect workout routine whether your goal is staying in shape this holiday season or getting back into shape and easing your way into a fitter more active life.

Now for the hard part: my “Before Photo” and weigh-in information.

So, this is me right now. I’m 4’11” and 156 lbs. By health standards I am obese. 😭😭😭 Excuse me while I cry myself to sleep. Just kidding, I didn’t actually cry about it when I calculated my BMI, but it wasn’t exactly the best feeling in the world.

I haven’t worked out in over a year, I hadn’t been eating very healthy, I’ve been in and out of depression, I stopped leaving the house unless I had to, and I’m just finally ready to do something about it. I don’t know what it is, but I feel like I just woke up in a sense. I feel more motivated and positive and ready for a change. I’ve had a lot of time to reflect and grow internally and I absolutely do not hate my body (it’s just reacting to what I’ve done to it after all), but that doesn’t mean I’m okay with and liking the fact that I look like I’m growing a baby bump — no matter how much I suck it in. No offense to pregnant people — y’all are beautiful and glowing, it’s just...I’m not pregnant! It’s also hard to take a compliment from my husband with grace and gratitude when I feel differently about myself than he does, but — like all of my other bad habits — I’m working on it.

Stay tuned for updates and progress reports!
