Powering Through


Wednesday, January 11, 2012

I have to say, that I really have reached a mental and physical milestone today. I got up, and was super sore from a strength training workout that I did on Monday. I decided that I was just going to go back to bed, and forget my morning Insanity workout. I went back to bed, laid down, pulled up the covers and then couldn't get back to sleep, because I felt so guilty about missing my workout. Then I started worrying that I would be too tired on my drive to work, and not as alert for my morning at work since I wouldn't have that cardio rush. This resulted in me climbing back out of the bed, putting on my workout clothes and completing my Insanity workout for the day. I am so proud of myself that in just 2 weeks I have made exercise a fixture in my life and something I don't dread as much anymore. I think something clicked in my head, that exercise isn't the worst thing in the world. It isn't easy, but I feel great afterward and feel very accomplished. I plan to run on the treadmill after work today for a little extra exercise! I love the new me! (Now lets just hope that the scale is kind to me!)

    That's amazing! It's such a crazy feeling when you realize that you would rather take care of yourself (and avoid the guilt) and get a workout in rather than sleep!

    Thanks! I was almost shocked that I am starting to feel guilty if I miss a workout. It is great! The old me could have made excuses for missing a workout all day long!
