Never go more than two days without working out.
It scares me that lately I have been on the verge between going to the gym and not going to the gym.
Going to school online and having a nearly full time job, not to mention a boyfriend about an hour away, make it difficult to stay motivated for the other important things in life—like working out.
I created this blog as a support system, but frankly, I don’t know if it is enough. I need someone to push me. To jog on the treadmill right beside me and say, “I know you are tired, but you need to keep going for another 2 minutes. Give it all you got, AMP UP THE SPEED AND GO!” I think I need that. I fear that if I don’t find that, well—-I fear the alternative.
Tonight I went to the gym! I did quite a bit of cardio and worked on my upper body a little bit!
But I have a confession to make. I almost wasn’t going to work out. The clothes I brought were a little tight and I felt really uncomfortable with the way I looked. But I looked myself in the mirror and realized there is only one way to change that. Get out there and work for it!
Sometimes you can be your worst enemy and best motivation all at once!
Daily Horoscope: May 15, 2013
You’re pretty frisky today — so much so that you might accidentally get someone mad at you, through no real fault of your own. Let it blow up and then blow over. There’s no need to sweat it.
There is no need to sweat the small stuff! (:
Stay happy, stay healthy, and only take to heart what will make it beat.
Okay, this past week was not very productive for me. A whole week just slipped by without me doing much, NOT EVEN MY SQUATS!
Wow, writing this, admitting to my error actually makes me want to go harder!! It makes me not want to disappoint myself or anyone reading this.
Just because I may be slipping up doesn’t mean I should stop my 6-months-to-a-better-body plan. HECK NO. I know now that I just have to work harder, and longer!!
I had my banana w/peanutbutter today and I am pumped!
Wish me a good workout, encouragement, tips ANYTHING.
As much as I want to, I am realizing now, I cannot do this alone!
So it’s May 6, not only my Mom’s birthday, but 6 days into working out!
I’ve been doing pretty well. I’m sorry I haven’t been blogging. But this is it! I am back!
May 1st: I started my exercise kick with my dogs and the squat challenge: 50 squats! I walked both of my dogs separately for about 30 minutes and did intervals of 30 seconds sprinting! They were a huge help!
May 2nd: I did something similar to day one. I jogged with one and then walked and sprinted with the other. Also 55 squats! (I got a gym membership!)
May 3rd: 60 Squats, and I jogged with both of my dogs! Also I started stretching because I realized I really really needed to!
May 4th: I was caught up all day today in volunteer work in a local community near mine. We did a lot of painting and yard work—MAN DID I WORK UP A SWEAT! That was my workout for the day!
May 5th: I went to the gym! I did some circuit training and jogged on the treadmill—each for half an hour. I love the treadmill for one reason-You can SEE how many calories you are burning!! Not to mention you can monitor your heart rate without a wrist monitor or anything! No squats today, it called for rest.
Which brings us to today….
I have not yet gone to the gym…but I am planning an evening excursion
I LOVE 24HR GYMS! (:
