So the first ten days of the healthy food challenge had been pretty hard to go through. Between feeling yucky, hungry, hangry, just all around like a honey badger, and tired, it was a difficult time in my life.
Today I feel really good. I got up and just got ready for my work out. I didn’t feel the “impending doom,” or dread that usually would hint in. The work out was very difficult but I went through burpees in what I think was a pretty record time for me. I did what feels like a million front squats today, and that was just, the devil, but I accomplished it! I mean, realistically, I go in to my work out every day, look at the work out of the day, and say to myself, “I can’t do that. I’m not there yet.”
And then I do it.
I have been getting to the point of feeling nauseated towards the end of almost every work out, but I finish it.
Now I’m at home, and looking at my home (which I’ve get a little out of hand in my honey badger days) and in like, “Hey. I have the energy to do all this.”
Now granted, I could probably* still sit on my ass all day. But I don’t want to. I practically want to go and look in the mirror and scream, “WHO ARE YOU AND WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE?”
Normally I have to fight to do even menial things. I have no drive. It’s really hard to live this way. To be a parent this way. But today? Today feels good.
Work out: burpees, front squats, hip thrusters, push ups, ring dips (at an angle), and more front squats.
Food: eggs, salad and salmon and chicken, chicken and steak fajitas, no tortillas.
Food I didn’t eat that I came across today: chocolate, cheese, breads, peanut butter, alcohol
