It is so real.
Between all the extra holiday goodies and my not counting calories/portions for a few weeks…. I’m struggling.
I also didn’t drink nearly enough water this weekend and it’s catching up to me big time.
It’s also day 33 of 37 of my running streak, there’s a winter storm brewing and my feet are beginning to protest the daily runs.
I’m struggling to put my happy face on and get this Monday started right.
But I’m not a quitter. I set out to accomplish something I hadn’t ever done before. I want to see it to the end.
Just like when I did P90X, Insanity, all those other programs. Just like when I trained for my first half marathon, my full marathon… I won’t quit.
I ran a marathon with an injury, but I didn’t quit.
I can do this.
But yes, the struggle is real.
I’ll be weighing in soon and taking my before pictures. I’m not happy with those, even before I’ve taken them. I know what I feel like, and it’s showing in the mirror.
I will be real with you, it’s not pretty. But I won’t give up.
I will be starting the newest program very soon, The Masters Hammer & Chisel is going to kick my butt. I know it will. I’m ready for it.
I have to be.
The struggle is real. But we don’t get better without it, do we?
I didn’t think so. So let’s get on with it!
