Is it Monday already?  Oh boy oh boy.  I am not sure why Monday is pretty much a guarantee for a bad day, but I am feeling it already.  Guess I won’t be able to skip the gym today because I am going to need those endorphins flowing to cure this mood. (Not that I was going to skip anyway)
This weekend I moved my remaining things from a house I previously lived to the house I currently live.  It’s a long story but a bedroom set, dining set, and a ton of clothes later, its moved.  It looks like a tornado has come through my house.  I have so much stuff.  We got the bedrooms set up and the dining area.  The rest will take a while to unpack and sort through.  I imagine a lot of things being set out on the curb.  A lot was already set out and it was gone before I knew it.  Anyway, the point of all of this is, wow, that move has left my body all stiff.  I am not sore like after a workout.  Its just hard to move around.  I did a lot of lifting and walking.  Who knew a 33 year old body would protest like this?
Not sure what I will be doing at the gym today.  I will most definitely be there though.  I can be tired sitting at my desk or I can be tired at the gym. I choose the latter.  I hope you all have a kick ass Monday.

Its all in the brain

I can't believe its been 3 months since I have last posted.  Where does time go?  I really am a bad blogger.

Life hasn't changed much in the last few months.  My life consists of working, working out, and taking care of kids.  I went TDY to Seattle last week.  I enjoyed the weather and the green scenery.  Yep, that's about as exciting as I get...

I finally had time to explore pinterst and understand what the site was about.  I am addicted.  But this post isn't about pinterest.  I read some things on there that really hit home.  It's things I have been saying for years:  If you want to lose weight/get fit/get stronger, it all beings with your head.  If your head isn't in the game, your body wont be either.  YOUR BRAIN has to tell the body to get to the gym.  YOUR BRAIN has to tell your body to stay away from the bad food.  YOUR BRAIN makes the decision if you will fail or succeed.  Until your mind is 100% in the game, your results will be minimal. 

Think about that one for a while.  My brain is telling my body to get off the computer and do some laundry.  I REALLY don't want to, but I have to gather the will power to do it.  Have a great Thursday everyone.
