Well That Was A Lot Harder Than I Expected

Wednesday, May 29, 2013

It's no secret that I have a competitive spirit and that I often challenge myself. Well, I managed to finish Sunday with around 9,000 steps, and yesterday with over 12,000. Without actually saying it out loud or writing it down, I decided I had to commit to getting an average of 10,000 steps a day this week and that it was doable. Only I came home from work today at just over 2,000. I did the Leslie Sansone 4 mile walking video and it was hard the whole way through. Not because the workout is hard. It's not anymore. It was just that I wasn't at all in the mood. I'm actually in a fairly pissy mood because of my guy and then it's pissing me off that I'm letting him piss me off. A vicious cycle. Anyway, I started the workout with a little cramp in my side that never did go away, but I pushed through it and finished the video. After those 53 minutes, I was still only at about 8,300 steps. What the heck!?! So, I continued to walk in place as I shut off the DVD and turned on Extreme Makeover. I thought I'll just keep going until I get my 10,000. OMG! It took forever!!!! 72 minutes altogether and I even jogged some of it because I was just so tired of moving and wanted to hit that stupid number. But I did it. So yay, I guess. Sometimes a workout is just work. Most of the time I get past the work and get to a happy place and that didn't quite happen today, but I'm still proud of myself for pushing through.

    I sometimes hate my fitbit flex for this reason but it pushes me so I love it at the same time.

    Good for you. I tend to countdown as well, on the Fitbit...I feel it takes such a long time sometimes! Great satisfaction when a challenge is met though!
