I want to hibernate this summer. The heat is making me feel sluggish and not terribly motivated. I do not feel so bad out and about. It's workouts that I really feel my bear side take shape. Why move and get hotter when you could stay in your air conditioned home? Cause you got goals lazy bones!
I was in upstate NY last weekend so I did not work out with Egon on Saturday. We snuck in an extra work out last night. It was okay, not my best not my worst. My running struggled. I am a little worn out from allergies, and temps in the 90's, but I decided for a little while I am going to start training with him two days a week. It's not really in my budget but maybe instead of shopping on line, I should be focusing on the body I really want to shop for. Makes sense no? I also want to fall in love with exercise again. Right now we're drifting along. I am going through the motions but I am not excited. I feel better for it every work out I accomplish and I do not let go of that.
I love strength training because it makes me feel strong, confident and less concerned with what I look like and more positive about what I can do. Adding another session of that a week is something I need right now as I am tottering on the edge of grumpy about the state of things. Overall I have done a lot, look pretty good, and feel pretty awesome, but I have to keep pushing forward. More then anything away from moving forward or goals, I have really fallen in love with exercise and have looked to it to be my haven and I hate feeling meh about it. Maybe instead of dating myself or flirting in bars I should date exercise to rekindle the romance. For now though I will get my train on Wednesdays and Saturdays and hope to get a little pick me up that I need.
