Subtitle: this post is so trite--but since Ive only just experienced it please to indulge me.
Im not great about making myself do things that I dont like to do.
In the exercise/diet realm anyway. Im fully aware (*sigh*) that as an adult my life shall be crammed with doing stuff I dont r-e-a-l-l-y want to do, however, I shall spareth you THAT rant.
I definitely cling to the notion of consistency with my workouts (as in if I do it 6 days a week for YEARS then it mightcould be ok that I am not good about mixing it up).
In a really obvious way.
Im certain that the people who are at the gym the same time I am in the mornings could tell you precisely which machines Im going to do in what order once they know the body part Im lifting/if Im there to do cardio.
today? I MIXED IT UP AND BIT AND MAN DID IT FEEL FANTASTIC.
It was leg day (extensions, inner/outer, seated ham, prone ham and DONE) and something possessed me at the end to throw in a few sets of lunges.
The exercise of champions and one which I detest.
You know what? it felt really really good.
I may do nothing else today to challenge myself but as of 8 am I already had.
what did you do today that challenged the way you think or work out?
That scared you just a little bit but you did it anyway?
