I've done something AMAZING. The one thing I am good at exercising, these days, is my mouth but rarely do my empty words get me anywhere. Even I have surprised MYSELF. For the past 10 days I have went to the gym and got in GOOD workouts. Yes, 10 days...at the gym...IN A ROW! I can't believe it. Who is this new work-out-aholic and where did she come from?! I'm not entirely sure but the one thing I know is that I'm really enjoying her presence.
I have to say that the one thing that I think has helped is literally NOT THINKING ABOUT IT. I have a tendency to overplan and overcomplicate things that really do not need messing with. I told myself not to think about time, things to do, or other things that could easily fill the 1-1.5 hrs of time needed to exercise and shower up. When I do this, I get myself so overwhelmed with the details that I end up coming up with "good" excuses as to why I can't exercises. It's a vicious cycle and I'm trying hard to just go with it. Pack my bag each day, fit in the time, and get er' done!
I'm loving this Spark Streak that I'm on and feel motivated to see how long I can keep this up. It's actually more motivating than paying attention to just the scale so maybe this is the focus I need in order to not get distracted by numbers. Wish me well!
