Getting the motivation
I am in a position where I have not really exercised for months and months. I'm not even truly sure how long it's been. I don't like when I don't work out. I feel fat and lazy and the lazy builds. I don't like it. I prefer it when I do workout. I have more energy and I just generally feel better about myself and life in general. So I need to start working out again. Towards that end, I haven't even been walking to school because of the cold and the rain. I need to just freaking get over that. I also haven't been sticking to the shifts. I'm not too bad at that, but it could be better. So, I think it's time for some tough love. I need to work out. I need to work out every single day. I need to do something that will make me feel good about my body and myself. I have some weights, a treadmill, and a brain. I can put together some workouts that I will enjoy and do. My mind says that I should just follow AltShift lift and I would like to do that, but I also know myself. If I only work out 2 times a week, I'll drop it by forgetting or pushing it off because it's only 2 times, whatever. So I need something to do every day or at least most days. Now I have Mavy and we could definitely do some training in the park after school. That would definitely be good for him and me. But I need a little more than that. So what I'm thinking is AltShift Lift 2 times a week, some yoga 2 times a week, and some cardio 2 times a week. That will provide some variety every day yet keep me moving. Something like this:
Sunday - Lift
Monday - yoga
Tuesday - cardio
Wednesday - agility
Thursday - Lift
Friday - yoga
Saturday - cardio
wash, rinse, repeat.
That would work. I can do the lift and the cardio while watching TV if I chose. I can put together some Tabata workouts for cardio. I can totally freaking do this and more importantly I need to freaking do this. Sitting on my ass has become the norm and I do not like it at all. So it's time to change it. Starting today.
