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.
