During the work out: How do you feel?
So let me just say, when you decide to get in shape or eat healthy or whatever, it never fails…you will get tested to see if you are really determined or not. So, this morning, the plan was to workout.
What ends up happening… my toilet was overflowing EVERYWHERE! Let me just give you a visual. The bathroom is completely flooded, I used ALL my towels to get it soaked up, the baby is crying bloody murder, and my son who is at home sick with the flu, is calling my name like I didn't hear him the first thousand times. LOL. Once I got all that taken care of, working out was really the last thing on my mind. I was tired, stressed, and a bit overwhelmed. I told myself I’d just do it later. But again, lets be real, later will never come because I will get caught up with everything else going on in my life.
Now that I got that off my chest, let me answer the question about how I felt working out. Well, I felt like I was over it before it even began. I can honestly say I half-assed this workout. I was incredibly weak, tiered, hungry, and just feeling like shit. Then the workout today was SO much cardio. So much man. I hate cardio. I did kinda feel bad that I didn't want to workout though. I mean, at 25 minutes in, I was done.DONE. But how embarrassing would it be to stop with only 5 minutes left LOL. So, I pushed through and finished. Fine. You won Shaun T.
After the work out: How do you feel?
I still don't like working out. Yes, I know I need to change all these negative comments. What you think you become right. Ok so I LOVE working out! I can not wait to do it again! Ha! But really, I do like the feeling of accomplishing the days workout. That’s the truth. Anyways, so after the workout I was clearly exhausted and sweaty (I had not towel because of the toilet so that blows). The good news it that there has been progress. I can feel it as far as my endurance. I am not getting winded after the first 2 minutes.
For anyone who is trying to get healthy-mind, body or spirit- just remember that you will have good days and bad days. Just try to pull through during those moments. Every day is a new day. It’s a brand new beginning. We all fall, but all that matters is we pick ourselves back up and keep on pushing.
