My personal trainer has me on a 6 day a week plan. 6 days of the week I have to workout. Blech. I am trying to change my mindsets like I learned and be excited and understand that what I am doing is good for me, but man is that hard. So, I am struggling. Well, this morning I was supposed to run 2 miles. I started off great! I walked my 5 minute warm-up and then was jogging.
At some point while I was jogging around the lake I started to feel defeated. I started to feel frustrated. My inner dialogue went as such, "It's such a beautiful day, why can't I enjoy this run?!? I have done WAY better than this before. I can do this, I can do this. I don't want to do this. This would be way more fun if it were on TV. This would be the perfect day for a Glee episode. People would be singing and dancing... Actually, this would be a GREAT set for Glee. It's beautiful. There's a lake. There are good camera angles. And there is an especially good road to dance on. YES! This is a great dancing road. Wait. Why am I not dancing? I have music in my ears. There are very few people around. My heart rate will stay up..."
And with that, I began to dance my way around the rest of the lake. I did all the different routines you do across the floor in dance class. I did some skipping. I did some kickboxing punches. I did some Zumba moves. And I definitely gave the other people around the lake something to see. But you know what?
I HAD A BLAST!!It was the most fun I have had EVER working out. Not only that, but I burned over 300 calories which was my target for today. It was a good way to start the day and...
Mr. Schue would have been proud!!!
