Well! I changed the ruler on the side to a probably more achievable goal weight…which isn’t the endpoint but rather somewhere in the middle. So when I lose the next 3kg (and I will, mark my words, I will!) it will feel like a massive accomplishment, rather than a non-event.
And massive accomplishments keep you going!
This week has started with a run in the rain =) Well, drizzle. It was very half-hearted rain. I’ve found that while I run or whatever, I come up with half-hearted inspirational comments (read: platitudes) to convince myself to keep going and not stop and curl up and wail that it’s all too hard.
You know the things. Along the lines of, ‘If it doesn’t hurt (as in burn, muscles on fire, heart racing hurt) then you’re not doing it right.’ And that something being hard isn’t a reason to stop; that’s the reason to keep going.
I know. I know. Really?
But, surprisingly, in my muscles on fire burning state, it actually works. Being stubborn helps, too.
So now I’m taking a moment or two to drink my SLM shake thing (I know, it just keeps getting worse! I’m like some sort of gym junkie, only not in a gym) before getting ready for work.
That’s right, kids, got up at 7AM to exercise for an hour before 9 hours of work. Bloody dedicated!
Tomorrow, abs, in the spirit of boot camp not being on due to a horse race.
