I have not been able to stay consistent. I lose a few and gain it right back. I am a teacher. It's hard to get up early enough to workout but then I'm also exhausted when I get off work. Plus I have kids a a husband to cook for and homework to help with when I get home so I tend to put working out, off to the side. Ugh.

It gets tough for all of us in one way or another. But it's awesome that you're trying to get into that consistency. A great thing you can do is just do small workouts to get the heart racing and muscles pumped. Say maybe, 2-3 minutes of vigorous movement exercise in the morning plus another 2-3 minutes of some other at night. Do little sets during the day of push ups, squats, lunges, etc. This way, instead of doing one long workout at the beginning or end of the day, you do a lot of short ones during the day. You'd be surprised about how they add up. Plus, something done right is better than nothing done at all. Also remember that the most important factor is what you eat. So make sure to consume enough protein and balance outs those healthy fats and complex carbs. You can do it! 💪😄

I agree with Calvin! I know that being a teacher, its hard to workout etc. When I was in hs, my history teacher would go to the hs gym every lunch, and workout. If your school has a workout room, use it! If not, HIIT workouts during breaks or lunch can do amazing things!

Also, a Ketogenic diet can do wonders! Ive seen people drop 100 pounds by just cutting out carbs, and exercising!
