However, the following did not happen: I did not track my food intake and I barely made it to the gym.
Monday – No Workout
Tuesday – No workout
Wednesday – Workout
Thursday – Workout
And I will be surprised if I make it to the gym. I am already thinking about how my bed will meet me at the end of the day and I will allow myself to fall asleep until tomorrow if that is what the body wants. Then this weekend will be about kicking this week behind me and heading to the gym to set myself up for a fantastic week ahead.
And here’s the thing about working out. I will curse it the whole day anticipating having to rearrange my evening or cancel plans to workout. But man, once, I am there and sweat is just dripping down my back, face, feet – I LOVE IT. I love making myself sweat, and I love lifting weights and doing lunges up and down the gym. Like many other things, it is always the anticipation of not wanting to do it.
Yesterday, I opted to the do the fat burn on the elliptical. I tried running and the pain in my knees/legs was unbearable. And let me tell you – FAT BURN IS HARD. The whole point is to go slower and the machine kept yelling at me to go slower to reduce my heart rate. It was hard, but I liked it. I think the elliptical machine and I may have reignited our love.
It’s time to go make today a good day. I’m going to stay positive even if I have a constant internal fight with myself.
What will you do to stay positive today?
