boo to this morning

Today was supposed to be the first day on CF Football programming. I'm not going to lie, I was pretty pumped. We got out there, warmed up on a chilly morning, got done with the strength portion of the workout. As I'm getting ready to start the METCON, I find out it is time to leave. WTF? Really?

I'm disappointed. Nothing in the workout was confusing or should have taken a long time. When I see the workout left incomplete, I'm slightly worried that we're not being efficient with time. I could either wallow in remorse or make sure it doesn't happen again. I'm not big on regret, so guess what...time to get in gear. First thing - less talking. A few words exchanged every so often can add up to 10 minutes. We could have done the workout with that time. The other thing is a faster warm up. Warm ups are no joke. I'm not a spring chicken and it's pretty cold outside (and inside), so a good warm up is crucial to for maximizing output during a workout and injury prevention. I know I slow build for my first exercise no matter what was done beforehand. That means finding a faster warm-up that will still prime the pumps and give me enough time to warm up to the weight I'll use in my workout. Easily said, right?

Today has been a great "learning" situation. In the journal it goes and off to find better methods I go. I have to remember being crunched for time is not an excuse to half ass warm up and recovery time. It should be a motivator in making more efficient use of that time.

don't give me your attitude!

I’m tired. I’m sure there are many people out there who are tired too. Perhaps you're more tired than I am. So what the hell am I doing blogging when I could be napping? I’m trying to get the word out – sometimes you have to work your ass off!!!
It’s time for another physique competition. This time, hubby is also prepping for his first physique competition too. It’s been the typical love/hate thing going on. And how can it be anything but? My husband and I are at opposite ends of most any spectrum. I put on mass by looking at weights and he has to tinker with any plan that would work for anyone. I put on mass by looking at food, while he can't shovel enough food down his pie-hole. I like waking up and getting my cardio done first thing, he can barely wake up to pee. So, it would seem that we're not all that similar.
If we took everything at face value, it would seem we are fairly different. There’s a lot going on behind the scenes though. We both have contest preparation…

Dream Planning Realization #1

For quite some time, I could tell my life has been slipping away from me. Not in that dying sort of way, at least not physically. However, I have sunken more into my work in the name of having a better life and all I have to show for it is - more work. Not exactly the way I thought I'd be digging myself out of the work hole. It isn't that I view my work as a hole and am unhappy with it. I love my jobs. I do. And that's part of the problem. They give me a means to meet other needs, while still being pretty darn likable. So I don't realize when I need to pull back to focus on the other things in my life. You know about the other things - friends, family, health, wellness. Things. Example - I work to earn money so I can take my family on trips to neat places. I have worked. I have made money. We haven't gone anywhere. For the past few years, my brother has been living in different places and it wasn't until recently that we ventured out his way for a visit. We m…

I'm Still Alive

Really. I am. Go figure the moment I have time to write something is the moment it all leaves me. I've been keeping a notebook to write things down throughout the day. It's done wonders for my shopping lists, my "to Google later" list, and my WTF Why Not list. Totally forgot about the blogging though. In the mean time, let me tell you that I'm still me. I've spent more time working than working out and I'm fighting to find my way through it all. I'll let you know how it goes. So far, I've identified my shortcomings: the office candy dish, lack of better options, not going to bed earlier, and straying off tasks. Stay tuned for what the hell I do to find myself back to my sane spot...
