If You’re Tired Of Going Slow, Go Fast

I don’t usually talk about the day’s podcast episode in the daily blog, but today I am because I absolutely love today’s episode!

If you haven’t listened to episode 402, stop what you’re doing and download it now.

It’s inspired by a quote from Ramit Sethi: If you get tired of walking up a hill, run. Momentum makes it easier.

Too often we give up when we are tired by our average effort & frustrated by our mediocre results.

Because we’re only half in, we don’t experience the thrill of momentum & progress. We miss out on all that energy & excitement that really provides fuel for the journey.

We often exhaust ourselves not because we are trying too hard, but because we aren’t trying hard enough. 

If you find yourself in that uncomfortable, unfulfilling, unproductive place, stop what you’re doing & listen to episode 402.

I almost puked during today’s workout. During the 2nd & 3rd AMRAP I had to intentionally slow down my breathing so I wouldn’t throw up on the gym floor! It was a tough one!

It was, however, my first time back on the pull-up bar since my shoulder injury a couple months ago, so that was awesome! The burpees got me like whoa!

“Lead Foot”
AMRAP 4:
27 Calorie Row
27 Burpees
27 Pull-ups
rest 4 minutes 
AMRAP 4:
21 Calorie Row
21 Burpees
21 Toes to Bar
rest 4 minutes 
AMRAP 4:
15 Calorie Row
15 Burpees
15 Pull-ups

No puking, no problem!

On the food front:

Want to know what I had for breakfast? Halo Top ice cream. Sure did. After my workout I went to the grocery store for bacon & eggs and picked up some mint Halo Top.

Best choice? Nope. Am I okay with that? Sure am. Perfection ain’t my goal and it’s just food.

A few hours later I had bacon & eggs mixed up with raw red cabbage – a mini salad bowl.

Dinner was several cups of chicken soup. I’m loving it in this cold weather!

Enjoy the day!
