That first week was great! Energy was flowing, expectations were flying, the new you was visualized. After seven days you even noticed that maybe there was a little more pep in the step and maybe, just maybe those jeans felt a little looser.
But then came week two. Somehow there wasn’t as much energy. The desire was there, but the enthusiasm wasn’t as strong. By the end of the week fatigue began to set in, followed by doubt and possible resignation.
“This isn’t working.”
What you’re going through is completely normal. For the last two weeks you have asked your body to do something it isn’t used to doing. Maybe you even started too fast, too strong, too eager – and your body is having trouble keeping up…
…but your body is trying. That’s why you feel tired; that’s why you feel fatigued; that’s why your energy levels are down.
Your body is listening. Don’t let your mind, your doubt, your excuses let your body down.
Take a rest day and then get back at it.
