Ohhh we’re halfway there. OHHHH I had to. Just be happy you can’t hear my voice as I belt that out. Be very happy. I will just sing out loud when I run this morning to spare you all. (The song at the end is my theme song for the week which should be played while reading this, some background music you know?)
Week three with BBBC showed me I can be smart and I can be flexible. This week, I had those four 12 hour plus days yet I got my workouts in. Legs were feeling a bit leadish so I modified some of the lower body workouts. I lifted on a Friday night, making my own circuit that kind of rocked. Could it be I am addicted to this shindig?
What did I learn?
- Buddy runs make any painful amount of hills, cold and routes seem effortless.
- Kiss 108 is my savior
- I actually need an alarm to wake up for my run when sleep is a struggle.
- A hot boy runs at the gym each night around 6.
- People at the gym give me a funny look when I proceed to wall sit for ages.
- I love bicep curls and bench presses.
- Stress leads to stomach issues which leads to bush visits which leads to run ins with various wildlife. No raccoon get out of my area.
Goal 1: Keep in touch with everyone. SUCCESS or at least I would say so. What do my blends think? I really have to say I spoke to more people than I normally do in a week even with an unpredictable schedule. I’ll take it.
Goal 2: Computer off by 9:30pm. SUCCESS however I have to admit bedtimes were later and my phone was answered past 930 a lot of nights. I did not get the sleep I needed and it showed as the week progressed. When my mornings are hard it totally shows that something along the line is not working.
This week, the workouts are a whole new batch. Body you ready?
Goal 1: I am bringing one back but STRETCH every day for 15 minutes. That week my body felt great. Oh this week, did I stretch? Nope. Did I hurt? Oh yes. Wow Alex you see where this is going…
Goal 2: Reframe my attitude in the moment. I am a complainer, it is that one thing I really hate about myself. I want to try my best to catch myself in the moment and reframe that thought, phrase or word that is coming out. This will be a tough one, kind of like when my mom and I tried to give it up for Lent. We lasted a day.
This week proves to be just as busy as last week but something I need to realize is that no matter how busy I am – I freaking get it done. Why stress? I know I am that person that will get it done when it needs to happen. Why pull out my hair five days before when I know in the next few days it will get done?
And it is off to work. Doubt anyone will be in, it is Superbowl Sunday. Hope you all have some killer plans!
