Today was supposed to be my lazy day. I'm caught up on homework, and I had every intention of sitting at my computer and playing a game all day. But then I started to think about the things I needed to do... I had to go shopping for dinner stuff to cover the weekend, I needed to work out, I had to clean the kitchen, I'm making BBQ pizza for dinner, and the list seemed to go on. It's now 3 and I still haven't fired up my game but I feel like I earned a free dollar today with my workout.
I must say, after almost 2 weeks, it's already lookin' pretty full! But the reason my dollar was free (but yet I still had to earn it with a GOOD workout since I'm having pizza tonight) is because I found it at the store while buying my taco shells! Instead of spending it or putting it away for a rainy day, I used it to make sure I earned my dollar for the day with my workout. :)
I'm finally enjoying the feeling after a workout (besides the places that get ice packs). This is a big deal to me because even though my scale isn't showing me numbers I want to see, I am finally noticing a difference in my endurance and determination rather than anger into motivation. It's not a chore, it's becoming fun and that's the most important thing is to have fun or else you're not going to see the positive.
My dumbbells should be here tomorrow so I can really put my new bench to good use! (sorry about the traffic cone in the corner)
Just remember to get out there and have a little fun while you're kickin' your own ass. :)
