So yesterday I posted about stress and what I go through mentally and physically when I'm stressed out. I had to go into work today for 3 hours (not onerous). I decided to go to the gym after. I did some upper body weights (to help tone my arms for the strapless dress that is in my future). But since I was alone, I decided to do something I've never done: run on a treadmill. Not just run on a treadmill, but doing moderate wind sprints for a minute with a 30 second recovery. I did 10 of them. And I didn't fall off the treadmill!
I then watched the Spain v. Paraguay match on tv (I don't plug in my tv at home) and ran on the elliptical the whole time. I logged 86 minutes of vigorous activity between the windsprints and elliptical (with a warm up and a cool down).
I will say this time and time again, and I will put it here so that I remember: One of the reasons I got fat is that I accepted the obstacles as being immovable. I'm getting healthy because I know I can move the same obstacles.
At the same time, the fat I have on my body is not the enemy. It is my fuel. It is my story. It is what will bring me to where I want to and need to be.
