Today's kick in the Butt

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

I didn't get to the gym last night. It's not a big deal. I did get a run in. I felt the workout. I don't believe in overdoing it. I don't believe the "no pain no gain" slogan. I know better. Slow and steady progress is the way to go for me.

I woke up to a winter wonderland again this morning. Blowing snow. Overcast.

The sun is peaking out now, but the wind is really howling. I'm thinking running today is not a good idea. So it's a perfect day to get over my gym issues and go.

I don't want to spend anymore time in regret. I regret not practicing enough to be able to compete in Calgary. I regret the time I wasted on the couch, rather than making full use of it. I know my emotional state needed me to take care for a while, but what's done is done. I need to find a way to move past it. To not let these recent setbacks drag me down into a depression I can not escape.

I have been surrounding myself with wonderful people who support my journey. Now it's time to work on my attitude. That's all that is keeping me back right now.

I DON'T want this to be me anymore.

I have a strength training plan all laid out on my iPhone. I also have some choreography for the dance competitions that I can start to learn.

12 weeks. Hmm. I wonder what I can accomplish in 12 weeks. Why not find out. I've been looking for a goal to set. Maybe this is it. Set out for 12 weeks of giving it all I've got. See where it gets me.

    I did a 12 week challenge with my friends. I lost 28.8 lbs. I was the biggest loser but others had also lost 10+, 20+ lbs. It was a great experience. Just make sure you stick to it. Tell friends and family about it. Ask someone to ask you how you're doing each weigh in day, it'll help keep you accountable.

    I think I'm channeling the guy from the second to last picture.

    You really can accomplish your dreams if you do the work. Unfortunately, without the work they won't happen. Hope you have a great day!
