I feel like writing....

but I don't really have anything to say. As I said before, it's been a really good week. I can not get over how good I'm feeling and I'm not feeling as great as I felt last week. That probably makes no sense at all but it does to me.

I have noticed there is a pattern to most months. This is the week I should start feeling like crap and lazy. I figure if I'm feeling this good when I should be feeling really crappy this is great.

I know that the reason I'm feeling so good is the strength training. It is like a miracle drug and I'm hooked. Now though is when it gets dangerous. I'm following the Afterburn program and the strength part takes about 40 minutes to do. At the end of 40 minutes I am dripping sweat, usually breathing hard, and feeling pretty wiped out. But at this point is when I start thinking that if 40 minutes is good wouldn't an hour be better? Wouldn't it be better to do the DVDs I have that cover every muscle group with your basic exercises and takes 90 minutes to do??? I fall into that old mindset where if a little is good, more would be better. That's not always true and that's not always the case. I have to force myself to just continue what I'm doing - if it ain't broke don't fix it.

So that's what I'm battling mentally. There is always some sort of mental battle going on, jeez I get so sick of it. Will there ever be a time when these things don't consume my every waking thought. Probably not. I have pretty much resigned myself that this will be a life long event, but I never give up hope :)

I'm going to go rework my diet. I want to tweak it a little bit and I think I'll go do that now. Good night.

Yeah, I like the wt training too! I'm glad to back into it, it feels good and is meditative for me in a way and enjoy it more than the cardio.
Have a good weekend.
