Work it, it's worth it.

Thursday, July 18, 2013

Yuuuuuck!!! I went to our workout area to get my exercise done this morning, and my fiance had already done his and left our mat soaked in sweat! Ick. This did not stop me from slinging my own coating of sweat all over the place, I just didn't use the soggy mat. Haha!

Tomorrow is the 19th, and that's my little kind of 2-month spark-versary. So I've been reflecting a little bit on the progress so far. I am loving this circuit training vid I started working on this month! It's so motivating to notice myself getting stronger. I know I've said it before, but it feels amazing to pick up a heavier weight and keep pushing harder! Or not modifying a move anymore because I'm strong enough not to now. The feeling of being just completely depleted at the very end, because you gave it all you had, incredible!

I weighed in this morning, and was relieved that it was not still as high as it was yesterday, so I didn't actually put on fat or whatever. Even if I did, I will just take it right back off again anyway! It was completely worth it for the learning experience, and the FUN of it too!

Starting to think about ways to make sure I do not give up for some random and stupid reason. This third month coming up is important to keep my efforts consistent. Maybe I could think up a challenge for myself? Not too sure.

Of course, today is the most important day. I kind of had to convince myself to make the effort to keep tracking and exercising the past couple days. So, maybe losing momentum a bit but not letting it get away!! I will not harass myself if I'm not making the best choices. I WILL NOT, however, rationalize making crappy choices and let myself think it doesn't matter.

    emoticon Ewwwww! Love the part about you slinging sweat. emoticon
    I am so with you on lifting a heavier weight or no longer having to modify. It's an AWESOME feeling and a reward in itself. What a great sparkaversary present to yourself - the gift of health. It's easy to lose momentum and it's ok to take a break now and again. But you are right to stay vigilent in your persuit. YOU MATTER! Keep Going Emily!

    It’s about losing the lifestyle and mindset that got you there.”
