I did it. I finally got my ever growing butt out of bed and into the gym this morning. Have you noticed the lack of workout posts here lately? There’s a good reason for that…I haven’t been working out like I should. Infact I’ve been slipping further and further into the hole that holds all my favorite cheats and bad habits. Why is it so hard for me to eat the way I should and so easy to eat everything bad? Yesterday it came to head when I chose to have ruffled potato chips and French onion dip instead of an apple for my afternoon snack. I looked at myself and knew I had to make a change and stop this before it got more out of hand.
So I got up at 5:20 am which was easy b/c I had been awake since 3:30 anticipating going to the gym. I was the third person there and the instructor said, “Kris where have you been?” I told him I had been slack and finding it impossible to leave my bed so early. He laughed and asked what night class I had started going to. Um, night class? They have those? I told him none and that today was going to hurt. He laughed and said “yep it sure is” and you know what? He was right.
We did burn out after burnout. He was ruthless on my abs. Every 2 minutes I would look up and he would be standing over me going, “not that way, you’re doing it wrong/to easy.” and then he would correct me. Lord I couldn’t wait for that class to be over. Since it ends alittle after 7am alot of people leave a touch early to get ready for work. I thought about it – hard, but I knew if I left I would only be cheating myself and Kevin would probably call me out on it so I stayed. I’m so glad I did b/c even though today was incredibly hard and pointed out how far I had fallen down that black hole I knew Monday would be easier.
So if you ever fall off the bandwagon like I did there’s always time to jump back on. We’ll pull eachother along and just keep going. I’m refocused and more determined than ever to get back into shape and live a healthy life.
