Rough Day

Boy.... what a day yesterday... Like I have said before, Tuesdays hold a bad omen for me. Murphey's Law is in FULL effect on Tuesdays for me, but all you can really do is understand that things go wrong and move on. Don't dwell on it! It gets you NO WHERE. Today I had a really hard time with my workout, and I am getting a little annoyed with myself. I have been doing Insanity for 2 and 1/2 weeks. I am a little better, but I still find myself constantly struggling to barely make it through. This is good because it means I am challenging my body to become stronger in a weaker area. But like every perfectionist....we want to be a master at everything, on the first try. I was constantly pausing, resting a little longer on water breaks and not able to perform up to par of what I want. I was so close to just giving up and quitting 20 min in to the workout. But I didn't and I am so glad I didn't. I know that if I just give up and walk away, I don't earn anything, I don't grow, I don't get stronger..in fact its the complete opposite on all accounts. ANY and I mean ANY effort you give into making yourself a better, healthier, happier you is all apart of building character, strengthening your relationships, making you stronger to face bigger challenges, etc. We ALL (even our beloved athletes and super fit models or slim celebs) have our days where we don't really want to face the challenge, we want to just let thte opportunity go by because it is easier. But is taking the easier road going to help you grow or provide any benefits to you or your loved ones? Just remember when you feel like you are crawling in the trenches and it's real tough, its all for a purpose. The purpose to improve, strengthen, and benefit you and the life you lead

  1. I felt the same when I started Insanity. Just wait until you have to take your fit test again, even though you are still struggling you will be shocked to see you are actually improving. Keep it up girl! :)

  2. Good to know! Yeah, I really get down on myself but I have been improving seeing as (with the exception of tuesday) I can go longer without pausing the workout myself, I can do at least 2 or more reps of one exercise than I used to. It's small but it counts and it will get better! Thanks Cat!
