If there is one thing that I have learned through this whole experience, it is to have your priorities straight! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: If you really want to accomplish your goals, jump the hurdles! I can’t tell you how many brick walls I’ve run into on this journey, but I CAN tell you that I’ve learned to CLIMB! I have weeks where I’m on it and I am knockin’ it right out of the park! There are also weeks that I don’t lose a pound at all. What I DO lose is the capacity to give up…
It is important to remember that not every week is going to be a gold star week. That’s okay! Just because you can’t see the peak of the mountain, doesn’t mean you stop climbing! It is in those weeks that I’ve learned what I’m REALLY made of… I’ll tell you, it has been the most rewarding experience of my life! It’s so easy to stay on a regimen when things are going perfect and smoothly. When you add turbulence…now…that’s the point where you either decide to retreat…or weather the storm. I’ve learned to always carry my umbrella LOL!
I’ve decided to spice up my workouts the past couple of weeks! I have added a Crossfit workout Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Crossfit is a whole body semi-circuit workout. It is intense!…to say the least! By the end of these workouts, let’s just say I need to lie face up on the ground for about five minutes until I’m able to see straight again! LOL! Then, on Tuesday and Thursday I have joined a group of people who do the Insanity workouts. Yes folks, this workout is just that…INSANE! Super fun!…that was sarcasm… Honestly though, I have a great time with both groups. They are all very motivated and live fitness oriented lifestyles. I am lucky to have found these folks! Finally, to make my week absolutely perfect…I train twice with my trainer, Matt, my number one motivator…and punisher! Just kidding, but not really…
Guess who met their 10 minute mile goal…and then smashed it!?…ME! Woo Hoo!!
Jump the Hurdles!
