Body Back Transformation – Week 2 - Overcoming Obstacles

I am happy to report that week two was MUCH better nutrition-wise. I created a meal plan, made a grocery list, sent the husband shopping and cooked/meal prepped. I’ve already begun doing the same thing for week three as well.

This week’s theme was “roadblocks”. There are always going to be things that get in the way. Things that could stop you or slow your progress. Life isn’t always predictable and that’s ok! If you aim high, you’ll hit much higher than you would have otherwise, even if you fall short of perfection. Megan talked in class about situations in life that can present themselves as roadblocks to our goals. It could be that the scale isn’t moving or maybe your kids have unexpected schedule changes. Maybe you or a family member gets sick. We march on. We prioritize. And even if some things slide, it’s never too late to get back on the horse. Roadblocks can become excuses or simply challenges to overcome.

I had more varicose vein treatments on my leg recently and it’s been really hard to take it easy. It’s difficult for me to not have the freedom to “go hard” in class or exercise as much as I want to. However, I don’t want to injure my body because that will only further my recovery and ability to exercise at a higher intensity. Everything is healing nicely and every day I feel better and closer to being back to 100%.

I’m really enjoying this journey so far, my transformation group, and instructor. I love the positive encouraging atmosphere at class and it leaves me feeling like I’m doing some really great self-care.
