sjcoray's Journal, 14 March 2013

I didn't think I was going to make it - a couple different times in last night's workout. During the run, and during bench press and lat pulls. But I did. I pushed through. I was a little bummed because I thought taking a day off would have had me feeling more fresh and rested, but it hurt more than I thought it would. I guess that's really the adding endurance part. I still think the day off was the right move, but no more than one in a row right now (any more would be disasterous).

I feel good. I feel like I look better. I don't think the scale has changed. Certainly not as much as I would like it to, but I know if I keep working hard, it will. I also know I haven't been tracking my food like I used to... I will, especially if I continue to see the scale not move, but for now, eh. I guess I figure it's like working out - you do what you want to do, what's fun, because you know you'll be able to sustain it. This time I'm building the workout part first, and then I'll be more diligent on the nutrition part, until then I'm trying to just be reasonable with what I eat (though it's prob way too many carbs).

Thanks Heather :) I had another good workout last night, but at the end, I felt very hippo-like. It was a super harsh moment when I should have been proud of my work. So I shared it with a couple friends (kind of a "I'm an idiot, why do I feel this way") and they helped smack me out of it (mostly)

Thanks Diane :D today is unfortunately a forced day off (I just have a hard time making a workout fit in my schedule on Fridays) - but I'm looking forward to kicking ass tomorrow. Good luck on your 10 mile run this weekend!

I hate forced days off, I really do! If I plan them its ok, but anything else and I feel guilty for skipping. GOtta work on that, our bodies do need rest and we do have lives lol. You'll kick some tomorrow!!

Yeah, you should be proud of your work, and you should be proud of your drive and determination. You just keep going. Workouts should make you feel good and invigorated and winning. You ARE winning.
