Take me HOME
Back in the Saddle, Week 10
Monday, March 12, 2012 02:14 PM

 So as some may have noticed there have not been any blogs posted in the last couple of weeks.  Due to a heavy workload, injury, and just straight up laziness, I quit training.  There is no real excuse to why I quit, I just let all the other excuses my mind could come up with convince me to.  So I’m starting again.  I’m still going to continue with the Power 90, but because I have other plans at the end of it I will only be doing it for 55 days instead of the full 90, this time.  I do plan to run through the Power 90 routine again next fall, but I’m going to use the summer to spend as much time outdoors this year as possible.

I think for the next couple of weeks, if I can, I’m going to be a Fitness Nazi.  I let myself slip a little here a little there and I soon give up completely.  I’m making a goal to be really strict this week. I already have the support of my family I just have to make sure my friends understand.  They like to have fun and I like to have fun and I quite easily let myself get talked into going out for a couple, after work, that turns into a late night escapade with a high consumption of calories.   

I just need to visualize the reward, being able to wear form fitting clothes, fitting in my car, being able to keep up with my daughter.  It sounds weird but I have to remember how happy I will be.  If I can visualize and feel the pleasure the reward will give I know I can work through the pain that causes me to give up now.  Plus if I visualize the pain of not going through with this, I know I’ll have a heart attack in the next 10 years and that is a type of pain I never want to experience.

I’m still going to go with the last fitness test results as I’m sure they are pretty accurate.  Luckily my weight gain hasn’t been too drastic and I’m starting with only a 2.8 lb weight gain for a starting weight of 337.8.
