Well i’m damn sore right now
Ggguuuaaahhhhhj okay. I won’t delete this one. It is perfectly acceptable. The world has seen many shapes of bodies, my “old” one being no different.
But they teach us that change, though unsettling and inconvenient, is good. Change is not only important, but also necessary for growth. If there is no growth, there is no progress. And if there is no progress, your goal will never be reached. i.e. you’ll never get anywhere that you want to be.
I’m back! >u< I had a really nice week-long break (and trip). We usually find faults with our bodies and don’t give them much credit for the things they do well, so this animation is for all the good our bodies do for us. <3
“rest”: Completed fat blast with Samantha from befit in 90 & six week six pack abs with Jillian Michaels
If it wasn’t for Jillian Michaels, I don’t know where I’d be right now.
My day was deemed crappy right from the start. Although id felt more awake waking up at 6:30 instead of 6, I had no intention of going through the day at all. I knew I wasn’t going to be challenged at my work, and I was beginning to hit a dead end in my career path. I’m taking info systems a lot later than everyone else, and I’m starting fellows program a lot later than everyone else as well. I’m sick of feeling so behind. When will I finally catch up?
Anyway, I had even less motivation going to my class after my internship. But of course, that was when things got a whole lot worse. First we were going through the hardest chapter in the book, according to him, then we had a tornado watch (TWICE) and had to go down in the basement and just stand there taking oxygen from each other while awkwardly making small talk or standing there, staring into space. When we went back, the teacher went over everything at lightning speed, and I absorbed nothing. Next time, I’m just going to read the book in class and drown out everything he says.
After the class finally ended, I walked to the car in the flooding rain, and by the time I dragged my soaking wet self into the car, I could not believe a bad day could last so long.
Fortunately, everything took a turn for the better, as I got home, got something to eat, and started working out.
I now realized that workouts are my source of motivation and the exact source of challenge that I need to go on for the rest of my life. I am not just working towards my goal of achieving a certain weight and body shape, I am also working towards the successful life I have dreamed of.
The only reps you don’t grow from, are the reps you don’t do. Finish every set to completion. That way, when you walk outta here, you get a sense of pride and fulfillment. You came in here with a plan, and you did it right. That’s growth, guys.
