Today at the gym I wanted to hit it hard to start off my week right. I started with 20 min of interval training on the elliptical. I do 4 min at a challenging level and on the 5th I go as hard as I can sustain for 1 min. It sucked. I wanted to work hard but my body was fighting me all the way through the first 20 min. At the end of the 20 min I had close to 350 calories according to the machine and I started to decide what to do ….
I don’t know if I watched too many cartoons as a kid but sometimes I imagine 2 different forces in a battle of fat vs. fit. Each represented by a guy on each shoulder.
Sometimes you just have to tell your fat guy to shut up!I am so glad that I am finally listening to my fit guy. It doesn’t mean fat guy is going to stop showing up but if you listen enough to the voice that encourages and lifts you up, the easier it is to send fat guy packin.
