Grandparents Just Don't Understand...(photos & fitspo)

Thursday, October 03, 2013

I checked in today at the gym on Facebook. My grandmother commented
"Please honey don't be over doing!"

I don't think my Grandmother understands. After all of these years, I have finally come into my own. I have finally found my stride. I have finally found something that makes me happy.

I don't think she understands that this is a fire burning inside of me. I don't think she understands that I can't quench this thirst. I've said it before, and I will say it again - the high I get from the gym is better than any high I have ever gotten in my life. It is like heroine mixed with cocaine and triple dipped in ecstasy.

Right now, I am so sore . My entire body hurts. My muscles are screaming and I am loving every second of it.

Class was awesome today. I lifted heavier and pushed myself harder.

and this is sooo true! My old workout is now pretty much my warm up.

again, this is sooo true!

Anyway, Class tonight was amazing. I was really feeling it. Gretchen and I motivated each other. We were racing while we bear crawled, and when I thought I was going to not be able to make it any further she yelled "Come on Cortney"! and I did the same thing for her.

I can't even describe the level of awesome it was.

Now, I am watching Season 5 of True Blood, and having a much deserved glass of vino

    love the hello kitty cup!

    I'm sure your G-ma just wants you to be careful. Don't be discouraged, just know she cares about you and her heart is in the right place.

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    love the "glass" of wine...especially the HK glass haha
    Alot of my friends don't understand why i'm doing this either.I don't know why i've been kind of pushed aside just because i'm making positive HEALTHY changes for myself. its not like i'm doing drugs or other destructive weird. Keep at it & keep kicking major butt!

    parents and grandparents dont always see how we progress so they tend to worry to much. They generally want the best for us.

    i also love how my old workouts have become warmups for me now.
