Today’s run felt great. It felt practically epic. Groundbreaking. Momentous. I felt like it was the first run for the rest of my life.
I refuse to skip workouts from here on out.
I thought last week was a bust in terms of working out, but I was oh so wrong. I still managed to burn 2763 calories. My problem? I ate out Wednesday afternoon, Thursday and Friday nights. Kinda defeats the purpose of working out.
Well, like I said, that shit stops now. We ate a magnificent dinner tonight of maple glazed salmon, soy ginger green beans, and jasmine rice. Wicked good dinner.
Since the New Year hit, my workout life has taken a hit. We’re in the 4th week of the month and I’ve managed to get in 1 long run. Granted, the week of January 8-14 I was sick, that still leaves me with two missed long runs.
Well, f#⃣#⃣k that I say. It’s time to get real about getting real. The timeline of my shit working out correlates with my lack of reporting on my workout progress. So I’m going to write the shit out of my thoughts on working out.
Anyone who can see this, I pity you for the blasty blast of unsolicited advice you’re about to get that may/may not be right.
This is a sexy woman. Look at all that weight.
Dear fitblr Girls,
Stop posting pictures of other girls who are skinny/thin. I follow you to see your progress.
I know it’s motivation for you, but you’re a wonderful enough person that what other girls look like shouldn’t even matter.
One of the hardest weeks in working of my life. Ever. Ever, ever. I worked 10+ hours every day, without break. On Thursday (the last day of my week), I worked from 6:15 AM to ~7:00 PM. Just about 12 hours. I took 1 pee break that day. ONE.
And despite all of this? Not one friggin’ work out was missed. Which leads me to my point:
Anyone who wants to claim that they don’t have enough time to workout is a piece of shit. Yeah, I said it. I spent 43 of the 72 hours I was awake over four days working.
This means that I had 29 hours to live my life.
It takes me 2 hours of travel a day to get back-and-forth to work. 21 hours
I used 35 minutes every morning to get ready for work (no shower). 18 hours, 40 minutes
I took 15 minutes every night getting ready for bed. 17 hours, 40 minutes
I read for an hour every night. 13 hours, 40 minutes
I ate dinner & watched TV for an hour and a half every night. 7 hours, 40 minutes
And the last is why I had no excuse not to workout. Even with a crap week, I was still left with over 7 hours of time to workout. So if you want to talk crap, stop it. You have the time to workout.
Now stop reading and get to it.
Running two nights in a row is not something to which I am used.
Achy. Sore. Tired.
But excited and still high from all my working out.
It’s been a long week (30 hours of work in 3 days) already, but I haven’t missed a damn workout.
Commit to it.
