86 Days Out!

Yesterday was the strangest day! I was soooo tired. I did my interval cardio in the morning like I planned only I had to make some adjustments to the times and I think I just knocked myself out for the rest of the day! My plan was to do 6mph @ 10% for 2 min, then knock it down to 4mph @ 1.5% for 1 min. So I warmed up for 5 min, then started cranking it up....I lasted 1.5 minutes at 6mph! So, I did intervals of 1 minute! I had planned to do the intervals for 30 minutes and I could only do 15 minutes! It was so hard! So I did the 6mph/10% and 4mph/1.5%, one minute intervals for 15 minutes then jogged for 15min and then walked for 5 minutes for my cool down. I was spent! I still had to bath all my clients and get them ready for school/dayhab, plus lift weights and then get to karate for my hour of training and hour of class. I did not lift weights. I told myself I would do that after karate, but then after karate, I came home, ate and took a two hour nap!! I couldn't believe hour tired I was! I got a little lecture from Justin about not lifting and how I have to suck it up and push through and it's only going to get harder. I have to remember why I am doing this and how I want to look......etc. I know I needed to hear it, but I was sooooo tired! I feel like there are 7 days in the week and I have to lift weights four of thos days, so why does it matter which four I do it on? I know he's right, it's only going to get harder. I am going to have days when I am tired and I am going to have to push myself to lift weights or do cardio. This is a learning process! I'm sure I'll get the same lecture when I see Diana today and she asks me how my training went yesterday!

I did make it to karate but was feeling sluggish and just kind of moving around not really motivated. Then another girl came in to run techniques so I ran them with her and it was just what I needed! I was so glad she showed up, it gave me that little push I needed to get moving! Class was good too. I learned more of my kata. I have GOT to be getting close to being done with that one! It is taking forever! I still have to make up my own kata and I would really like to get instruction on that and get going, but of course that will be the last thing my instructor talks to me about to really test me!!

During my nap yesterday, I dreamt about eating a plain Hershey bar. It was delicious! But, it was just a dream!

Today I have to get motivated! I am not going to think about being tired. I think I kept talking about being so tired yesterday that it made me MORE tired! So I am going to keep positive talk in my head today! I am energetic! I feel great! I am ready to conquer the day!

I am going to do the same cardio as yesterday and see if I can do the intervals for 20 minutes or longer! I am working out with Diana today! And that's about it. I need to get my butt back to yoga. I haven't been in like a month!

Okay...that's all for today! Time for cardio!
