What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Stronger
Potential has been on my mind a lot lately. In particular my physical potential. Lately I have have been patting myself on the back for working out 6 days a week instead of 5 like I used to, which please don't get me wrong is great, but like I said I've been thinking about my potential a lot lately. About three of those days are cross training, and somewhere along the line I lost the intensity of my cross training. So I said to my self let's be honest here Mac...
I am young.
I have never been injured (minus a sprained ankle here or there when I played basketball).
Rarely do I have sore muscles.
I am perfectly capable and healthy to push myself.
The other day I posted on my blog that I had a "great week of workouts", and believe me I'm not trying to play the pity card or beat myself up, but I truly think I can push myself more and become a stronger individual more than I have in the past.
Since I am in a taper week for my half marathon on Sunday, I plan on taking it easy(ish) the next couple weeks, but then I plan to try taking things up a notch. Here's how I plan on becoming bigger, faster and stronger:
- During my cross training sessions I usually read a book or magazine and take it fairly easy... Go hard or go home will be my new moto for my cross training.
- Incorporate one heavy lifting session in my week on top of two Cross Fit workouts that I have been doing regularly.
- Listen to my body... am I really tired? Yes, then stop. No, turn it up!
- Look into the costs of doing just Group Exercise classes at local gyms. This goes along with #1 and is the one thing that bums me out about the gym I work at we don't have any group ex classes. It is hard for me to fork over extra money to go to another gym since I have the weights and cardio equipment I need at Momentum, but I may have to bite the bullet.
On another note I have been working on my biggest weakness...my diet. I go through major streaks of eating healthy and eating like crap and currently I am getting back into an eating healthy streak. Next week I will show and explain to you guys a model I learned about in one of my continuing education home study books, that I am trying to use.
In the spirit of healthy food, this is what has been my "go-to" breakfast lately...
More to come on that little cupcake looking thing on the side of my egg scramble :)
Have a good day! And remember...
Choice Not Chance!
