ARGHH — June 25, 2018

ARGHH

frustratedI’m annoyed with my body today. It’s not doing what I want it to do. I eat right, count my macros, hit the gym, and… the scale isn’t moving. It’s been weeks. It’s getting… well… frustrating.

I mean, I know I’m not doing this just for weight loss, but damn it, if my body is going to stay here with or without big piles of pasta, I’ll take the fucking pasta!

It’s frustrating and defeating. Especially since I don’t know if I’ll be able to make it to the gym this week at all (husband is out of town and someone has to be with the kid). So now I’m frustrated and don’t even have an avenue to burn off the frustration. Top that off with solo-parenting a threenager for a week and… *see gif*.

Sorry, this is whiny, but I’m bummed today.

Grrr. Arghh.

Crushing it — May 2, 2018

Crushing it

I’ve been struggling with my workouts lately. My head hasn’t been in the game and my muscles have seemed to agree with my head. It’s been more than a little discouraging.

But today I walked into the box with a determination to, if nothing else, give it all I had. To fight through the pain and keep going rather than giving up.

And internets? I crushed it. I finished my first WOD in half the time cap and then when my trainer decided I wasn’t done I crushed her second mini-WOD in less than 7 minutes (with a 15 min TC).

It felt amazing. Was it a super hard workout? No, but it did challenge me. And more importantly I truly gave it everything I had. Even on the damn Assault Bike.

If this is what it feels like to not give up, then I’m hooked. What an awesome feeling of strength and accomplishment.

So for today, go me! You did good.
