I love working out. I think that I have made that clear over the past year since I joined my gym. I mean, maybe I don’t love it as much as I love shopping or watching TV. Or eating. But, I do really love it. I love the feeling I get after a good workout. I love the soreness that I get after a good workout. And I love buying workout clothes because again, I love shopping.
But, it’s easy for me to fall into a rut and get super lazy. Last week was one of those times. I’m not entirely sure why I was so lazy. I just had absolutely no interest in working out. I use the excuse that I was busy with work, which I was. However, I still managed to find time for all the other activities I mentioned (i.e. shopping, watching TV. And don’t get me started on the cake I had over the weekend! Yum!!). I just wasn’t feeling like the gym.
The cool thing about Ninja Trainer is that he didn’t fight me. He strongly suggested that I get my lazy butt into the gym, but didn’t give me a super hard time about it. I think he understood that I needed to push myself. He can only do so much.
I decided to get over the lazies and get back to the gym this morning. Since I’d taken the time off, he went kind of easy on me. (So he says anyway. My sore arms beg to differ!!) But, I can tell that he wasn’t pushing me. I know when he’s pushing me because I can see the excitement in his eyes when I’m going above and beyond. And when I’m really killing it, I get a loud “Woo!” Needless to say* I did not get a “Woo” today. And I know that I didn’t deserve one. I know that I didn’t kill it. I did do well. (See above about sore arms!!) But did I do my best? Well, I guess my best after being lazy for over a week. But that’s not as good as I can do. I need to not be lazy. Someone once told me that you never regret going to workout but you will regret not going. And that’s true. I know that I’m going to get lazy again. But I have to push past it and remember how good it feels after! And I love seeing results, even if other people can’t really see what I see. And I want to keep pushing so I keep getting the exclamations from Ninja Trainer, because then I know I’m killing it!
