241 to 40

Tired of me yet?

I was tired of me today. Felt blah. Did blah things. I had a run on my schedule but procrastinated and napped until it was dark and I couldn’t go.

I looked out the window and realized my dog was feeling the same way. Apparently we decided that lying around and hoping for something to come along and get us excited was the best way to spend the afternoon.

But here’s the deal. I have goals.

So… I went ahead and did tomorrow’s lifting workout tonight, so that I am free to get my run in tomorrow.

Options are great.

Our home gym has been a lifesaver for us! We love the friendships and community made at Crossfit, but it just didn’t fit into our random schedules anymore. It’s nice to be able to decide at 7:48pm that enough is enough and is time to go lift weights, and then stroll on out to the garage.

I still really, really didn’t want to workout, but one of the most important lessons I’ve learned this year is that

YOU DON’T HAVE TO WANT TO DO SOMETHING

IN ORDER TO DO IT

I knew I needed to get it done in order to achieve my goals. Having the want-to is really just a mental blessing, not a physical one, and I proved that to myself tonight. As I woke up from my grogginess and worked through my set, I ended up with a PR (personal record) on my dead lift tonight.

So now I’m sitting here feeling empowered, strong, and satisfied with my day, instead of still wallowing in the fact that I didn’t feel like doing anything today.

That’s a good lesson to learn..

Here’s proof that I was a sloppy mess today. Only slightly worse that my average, everyday mess look 🙂
