Day 7.18 Summer

Thursday, July 18, 2013 and my posts diminish in frequency. Partly because summer, and partly because I don't have a lot of 'new' stuff to write about--I mainly come in for self-flagellation or pep talks. So.....self....

Gotten back into the groove with eating/exercise. Work schedule for the summer has flipped around, so I have mornings off. Morning workouts! Good because it's nice and cool still, bad because it's a little harder to get motivated to leave from home, as opposed to going when I'm already at work (right beside the gym). We'll see how it goes--I can still go after work, though it's pretty warm.

I'm taking the plunge and attempting to add cardio to my routine. Lol trainer suggested 4-5 days/week of HIIT, 20-30 mins. Hahahahahaha. I was thinking of just starting with a couple and seeing if I can make it stick. Hehe. It's good for my overall health, and I am getting tired of not being able to see all the muscle and awesomeness that I can feel under my fluff. It's hard to go around to people and say 'feel my biceps!!' I think they'd get a little creeped out! HA! I kid.

I know I'm focusing more on the external right now--the look, the feel, etc. Or at least that's what I end up writing about. The internal stuff is a lot more subtle and harder to quantify. The fact that I've been progressively working out for about...8 months now? Awesome. And the longest I've stuck to anything, ever. Really. Trying to see if my newfound discipline can be applied to other long-term, non-immediate results things--such as cardio to get my huffing puffing winded ars in better condition. And core exercises so I stop falling over. I laugh at it now, but when I get older, falling is no laughing matter at all. So, fix it while I still can.

And on that note, heading out to the gym. :)
