Guilt over missed workouts
Wednesday, December 28, 2011
Does anybody else get this?! It drives me crazy. For about a month and a half... like November and the first part of December, I had an awesome workout streak going... BodyRock and TurboFire HIIT mostly. Then, about 4 days before I left for Chicago I got an awwwful headcold that went down into my lungs. I don't take antibiotics and I never have, so usually my immune system just attacks and gets rid of it. Well... it took a bit longer than expected... like 2 weeks! I could barely breathe, much less excercise, soooo... then it's the holidays so I'm baking, shopping, wrapping, traveling and now here I am and I am having suuuuuuch a hard time getting back into the swing of things. The only thing I can console myself with is the fact that results are 80% nutrition and 20% working out. I've done pretty well considering (except for SUGAR!), but that little percentile fact has helped me keep things in perspective with my nutirition and to not get so down on myself.
I feel like in order to get my fire lit again, I'm going to need a major goal to work towards. I'm thinking about doing to $100,000 12 Week Body Transformation contest on Bodybuilding.com. I don't know though... it would be easy for me to let that control my life for that 12 weeks... we'll see. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season... and has a Happy New Yeeeaaaaaarrrr!!!
