So, after a week off exercise, well actually 2 weeks at reduced exercise… I got the bug again today.
I don’t know if it was the 9hrs of sleep last night; The extension I was granted for my thesis; The realisation that my cruise holiday is only 2 months away; Or perhaps that my body knows that enough is enough (overeating much?).
I want to complete, as soon as possible, but not at the detriment of my body. Plus pass/fail generally means = chill the f*** out. Not that telling myself that has really changed anything(!)
So, despite the stress, I gave week 1 of Jillian Michael’s Ripped in 30 DVD. I was pretty surprised, the cardio was intense. Amazing how quickly you adjust to routine, I am quite happy doing 30 Day Shred Level 3 now, but level 1 for Ripped? It was tough.
Anyway, back to the point of this post – motivation. Today, I had a heap of it. Editing my goals, changing up my calendar. Yep, I can totally exercise every day. Why not see what I can achieve – really commit to Ripped in 30. 30 days straight, totally doable! Ha!
Doesn’t take much for my what I ‘want’ to do, to overwhelm what I will realistically “do”. Still, I don’t like to throw it away… you never know, right. I could shock myself and actually get to where I want to be(!) Not all that realistic with 6 years of study coming to an end over the next month. Maybe next month…
But still, I hope. I am going to take it one day at a time. And hopefully find some motivation for my thesis, — the quicker it’s done the sooner I can work toward the goals that I am actually interested in(!)
