Too legit to quit

That’s right. I am 😉 and so are YOU.

Anyways, I am back to training and could not be more thrilled! After 5 days off, yes as in 1 2 3 4 5. I feel good and refreshed and ready to kick some ass. Actually, I already did. This mornings workout was a killer: triceps/back and of course some tire flips and wall walks were in the mix. I also rowed (?) for 2500 meters. I am new to this rowing thing, but I dig it.

The “week” off was a nice break and I’m glad I did it for a few reasons. One being to have an excuse not to shovel this:

Legit snowball sized snow flakes?

The other reasons? My body needed it, and I was actually able to stick to it (my friends made bets on how long I’d last!) The fact that I was able to stick to it made me realize how far I have actually come. A year ago I would have never been able to take 5 days off from the gym. To be honest, I really enjoyed the time off. I missed training, but not to the point where my mind was fixated on it. I’m not obsessed with the gym anymore. I’m able to maintain my life without it being the primary thing. Yes, my training is important to me and I absolutely love it, but at the same time it’s not all there is too me. I’m proud of myself, and I haven’t been able to say that and mean it in a long time.

 

I ate this little number today:

Gala apple + cinnamon = ♥

Well, I’m off to pass out. Chest/shoulder and spin tomorrow!

Keep watch for the “paleo-ism” post, should be up Monday evening (eastern time!)

As for the title of this post, I was listening to the song. Your jealous of my taste of music, it’s okay!

That’s right.

Night 🙂

    Sometimes taking a break can be the absolute best thing for your body AND mind. It makes you feel so much more refreshed once you start working out again. 🙂

      My workouts are great now! Yes, I think it was actually better for my mind than my body!
