8 days not at the gym


So I haven’t been to the gym in 8 days now (including today) and I feel so bummed about it.  The reason being is because I have been busy with trying to make hard decisions, I went on a mini vacation to see my love bug and I have been in last 2 days not feeling so well (stomach bug/pmsing) and I tell ya, when I am not at the gym for more than a couple of days, I can feel my muscle mass leaving my body and my moods change, my motivation lacks and I start to really get upset with myself about it.  Now, starting Monday, I will be going back to the gym, I know this for a fact UNLESS, my love bug comes into town this weekend, then I will have to wait until late Monday evening or Tuesday morning instead.  Even my eating habits have been a bit bizarre in the late since returning home.  Nonetheless, this post was meant to engage all of you in discussion, so for today’s discussion, I want to know what is something you have a routine of doing (exercise, drawing, morning coffee, etc) and if you go days without doing it, eating it, drinking it, listening to it, etc how does it effect you mentally and physically? I think this will be a good post discussion in getting to know my audience better and being able to see how some of you may be able to relate to my hardships when I am not at the gym daily as I like to and strive to do.  Believe it or not, even if you are not one to have the same routine everyday, there is something you enjoying do that if it was something you could not do any longer for a great length of time it would effect you; and so if you are someone who doesn’t have a routine, think of it in those terms.  Excited to hear some answers!

P.S 8 days without the gym for me is like 8 days without chocolate for someone else. LOL

Hello! I have just recently graduated with my exercise science degree May 2016, yay! I am more than happy; and decided that since my passion is for fitness/health, I would write about it and share my journey with others because in my opinion health is everything (both mental and physical). I am 24 years old, and reside in the states. I enjoy being active anyway possible and want to get my cert in personal trainer and also be a wellness coach. I love to eat and don't believe in eliminating, but rather moderation. I hope that my blog post will inspire, motivate and encourage you all to want to be the healthiest person you can be! It all begins with "I can" and "I will" :) -Shay-lon P.S feel free to follow me on social media and or email me, l don't mind answering questions or simply networking. Would love to hear from you all.
