Thoughts for Thursday
I feel like an old lady. Wow it is hard to walk. My boss watches me get out of a chair in his office and asks whats wrong with me. Clearly theres a look of horror on my face or something because he can’t help but to notice that something is a little off with me. Yeah Bob, something IS wrong, my legs feel like the muscle is ripping of the bone, thanks for checking on meJ But did I mention I love the feeling?
I am still feeling really blah today, but I am thankful I have a workout partner. If you don’t have one, you must get one. This person will help keep you motivated and accountable. W texted me asking if we were working out and I replied with yes. I immediately sent a second text stating “You’re going to have to make me go.” W said “Ok, I will pick you up.” Its kind of hard to blow someone off when they’re outside waiting on you. Once at the gym, I had a great time. I had a great workout, I even died laughing while working out. You know its good when your side starts to hurt. (W was taking a drink of water and I moved my hand like I was going to slap his/her tummy, W flinched and ended up jerking the water bottle out of his/her mouth and got water everywhere. It was funny, you had to be there). I am thankful I have someone there to push me to my limits.
I don’t know if I ever shared the story of how I ended up with Tem Bombshell. I had used another trainer before because I saw what great results a few bloggers had with him. Well one person I followed was part of Team Bombshell and WOW, she had great results. She always inspired me so I wanted to do what she did. But there’s more to it than just following someone. I was going through a lot in my life and I needed something to focus on to get me through it. I figured if I poured myself into working out/prepping meals, I would forget everything else around me (and I would have a nice body). Well that was a nice thought but life got in the way—I was sick for like 2 months, then I injured my hand. I am going through a lot again and I should probably remember why I started on this journey: something to focus on while improving myself. I spent so much time sitting here neglecting myself, neglecting my workouts because I was in a funky mental state. I need to dig down deep inside and focus again so I am not focusing on the negative around me. If I put as much effort into working out as I did with moping around, wow I would have a smoking hot body!
Anyway, many many thanks to my friend W. I appreciate you making me work out more than you will ever know. And I appreciate you spitting water all over yourself just as muchJ
