Sometimes our minds get in the way of accomplishment.

So last night I went to a Fast twitch class at 6pm, and it was about 8:30 by the time I got home. Now, my wife is out of town, and so I have to take care of things at home myself.  Dogs, cats, groceries, pack my bag for the gym the next day, pre-package my meals, etc…

Well, when you get home at 8:30, and have to get up at 4:30 am for a class that starts at 6am.  You don’t have a lot of time to do all of that.  And some people would just say “forget it!”. Not me.  Just because it takes a little extra discipline, doesn’t mean it’s not worth it.

It is worth it. You see if I don’t go to Fast Twitch at 6am, then I may not get to work out tomorrow, then I I am off track for the week. Plus, I scheduled my meetings in line with me being in the area of my fitness club at 8:30am. So , not going means getting up a little later, hiting traffic to get to my first meeting, and then turning around and driving back out to my office for my next meeting. It doesn’t make sense.  If I just stick with the plan and gut it out everything will be be smooth.

Well…..I did. and It was sort of smooth.  I did not realize that Fast Twitch on Monday night and Tuesday morning were the same FREAKING exercises!!!  My legs were so mad at me.

Now here’s what I mean by letting your mind get in the way.  I could’ve said, uh no way I am doing the same routine 12 hours later.  And gone to the cardio area and still worked out. But I didn’t and I am glad.  As hard as it was, I did it. And I am fine.  My legs are mad at me, but they still choose to work. Which is a good thing.

I did it, and I am still on track for the week.
