Happy Friday friends!
I’d like to think I’m a pretty interesting person, with lots to offer and talk about. And yet on IG, in DMs, in emails I wind up talking about my exercise routine all. the. damn. time. People want to know what I’m doing and how I’m doing it and to be honest, most of the time I don’t know what to tell them. I refer them to my Recovering Girl’s Guide to Working Out as a starting point and sometimes I’ll talk about my love for Blogilates. But still I’m asked exactly how I’m exercising and how often. Well, here it is.
My Workout Routine
Monday consists of doing what feels good. Sometimes that means lifting weights, other times it means pilates or cardio. Sometimes it’s NO exercise at all.
See Tuesday aaaand repeat…
Okay so I tricked you guys. Just a bit. I was also intentionally vague by saying “doing what feels good” because guess what? That’s different for everybody! Case in point: If I worked a long shift the night before, chances are my feet are sore and I don’t want to go do sprints so some light Pilates probably would feel good. Or maybe just resting in general depending on what else is on my schedule for the day. Are you starting to catch the tone of this post?
Why I Don’t Want You Copying My Workout Routine
Not because I’m possessive over it the way I was over my lip smackers in the 2nd grade (seriously, pink lemonade was my flavor..get your own) but because what works for me will not be exactly what works for you. Our lives are different. We may share the same passion for balance, self love, and health but those things manifest differently in each of our lives. I don’t want you following my workout routine because I want you to be brave and find your own groove. Take the time to let your body teach you what feels good, when to do it, and let the rest flow.
I Know There Will Still Be Questions
I know people will still ask me how often I exercise and in what way just like I know people will continue asking me how much I weigh or just how underweight I used to be. These questions don’t bother me, because I know they’re a product of diet culture. I know they’re being asked out of anxiety of not measuring up to beauty standards. But I can’t answer them. What I can do is remind you how to exercise intuitively, practice positive body image, and overcome those beyotches of your eating disorder. And let me be clear – I love when y’all send me questions. I love talking to you and hearing your stories. I love that we can connect! Please continue reaching out, and remember that what works for me won’t be an exact fit for you. And that’s OKAY. That’s what makes both of us great.
