I think it’s amazing what the human mind can do. I can’t really that about the human body because I’m still in this journey. I can say that every time I hear that alarm, I dread getting up. I slap that alarm so many times that I lost count. It was around 6AM and my friend has not hit me back yet. It’s my fault because I ended up falling asleep earlier when we signed up for a free guest pass for Lifetime Fitness. Oh well.
Today’s a rest day, but Jim Stoppani want’s me to do 30 minutes of cardio. I lay in the dark just procrastinating. I want to eat some junk food. I want to sleep. It’s amazing how much we condition ourselves to think negatively. Stop.
I change my attention. I change my focus. I start wondering about how it would feel to lose this fat that’s on my sides. I don’t look that bad when I have clothes, but there’s something about these handles that just needs to go. Someone the other day noticed I’ve been losing weight. Sometimes I wonder if I shoul stop because I don’t want to lose way too thin. There was chart that said for my heigh the ideal weight is 155. I don’t think I’m close to it so I should say I’m safe.
I get up and take a preworkout. During my rest days I wish I had coffee on hand but it’s the only caffeine substance I have avaiable that I can take instead of heading to the store. I want to invest in a keurig.
I head to the gym. Cardio. Here we go. No one’s at the gym except me and some other guy. He’s on the elliptical and off I join him. Doing intervals on the ellipitical is fun. I don’t have headphones so I notice that I talk to myself quite a few times. Usually you can catch me chanting the word “focus” to each stride that I make.
After my workout, I head to Wawa to get 2 bottles of Naked Juice that has 30g of protein each. That’s 840 calories in those two bottles combined! Well, that’s my meal for the day.
I look forward to more cardio tomorrow!
