Here’s a typical morning for me.
This annoying buzzing starts about 4:45 am, my instincts are telling me to turn the alarm off and bury my head in the pillow. My mind jumps in and gets all practical reminding me that I didn’t loose all that weight burying my head in the pillow and I’m sure not going to reach any goals that way! So I roll out of bed and stumble through a shortened morning routine that consists of trying to find clothes that match, socks, shoes and a hair band.
I’m finally dressed, out the door and off to the gym. It’s a cardio morning. Oh goody. (Did you hear the sarcasm?). I get on the treadmill and warm up to a run and manage to get through 20 minutes of grueling interval training without doing any permanent damage. I wipe down the treadmill and go stretch.
Somewhere along the way I start to wonder. Did I really push myself hard enough? Did it only seem like a good workout because I was still half asleep? Was my heart rate up or was that just the remnant of a dream?
Well ladies we can stop wondering if the amount of effort in our head is equaling the actual output of effort.
