The right kind of addiction
This last week has been pretty good. Got in 3 workouts with my trainer this week since we had to miss a workout the week prior. Had a bit of a ‘am i getting sick’ scare, so spent 2 days drinking tea, alot of water, taking coldeeze so i could ward off any potential flu/cold that may have been trying to incapacitate me. Luckily it seems i won that fight 🙂
Workouts this week went pretty good. Tuesday we had to cut short due to me overheating and we were thinking i might’ve been getting sick. But for what i did do on that workout, i was in total beast mode! lol. I was really upset not being able to finish the full hour, but a half an hour of tearing it up is nothing to shake a stick at either. My next workouts were on Thursday and Friday. Thursday was leg day….i am STILL feeling the soreness a full 4 days later. But what can i say, i do love leg day 🙂 Friday was back and arms, which was a very good workout as well. Took a good steady pace. I can feel myself progressing. Weights are being increased. Intensity is being increased. But none of it will matter unless i put my mind into it. Which seems to be my biggest holdback now.
I know that i can physically do my workouts…but when i just drop like a fly, its because my mind gives up. I really am working damn hard to get in to that focused frame of mind to where i just dont even think…i just do. I have moments of that intense focus, but i cant seem to harness it yet. So for me, at this point, that is my biggest challenge.
This week i’ll be back on with my 2 trainer workouts on tuesday and thursday. And at least one other workout on my own…but i really want to increase my workouts to 4 total days a week. 2 trainer days, 2 personal days. Gosh, am i really getting addicted to this? I think i am 😉 but it is the best kind of addiction though. And i dont plan on ever giving it up.
