Happy Saturday people! How has your week been? I've had a tough week, I cannot lie. I won't get into the details but suffice it to say that I am having to kind of give myself a pep talk today. Yea, I get down. I get down and out. I get discouraged and sometimes just plain upset and feeling depressed like the next guy. I've just gotten a lot better about bouncing back from these times, but there are days when...I want to be bad. Meaning I want to scream at people for how out of line they are, I want bad things to happen to bad people that seem to just keep getting away with it. I want selfish people that seem to drink greed for breakfast to wake up or have something horrible happen to them to pay them back for all the wrong they've done.
So yea, I have those bad thoughts. But I just keep learning, I keep learning the lesson that I need to learn and I shake it off. It's not easy, and that's why I'm sharing it here because some people think I have it easy to be happy/motivated/positive/optimistic and that's not true. It's a choice and it's not always an easy one. But I keep making that right choice and believing for the best. What's the alternative? I don't want to go there.
This was my cardio circuit the other day, and this morning I am getting ready to do my strength circuit. Mark told me I should try to do a short run this weekend and see how my Achilles feels -- I am excited to do this, as I have indeed missed my running for sure. I shot a vlog about the whole changing my workout approach and my opinions on it all- will post that tomorrow or Monday. But I am not missing the cardio DVDs believe it or or not, just have missed running. I read last night a bit more about Achilles issues and it seems that a primary CAUSE is not stretching your calf muscles. Let me tell you people I will make sure to get my dang stretching in for sure. I was not stretching at all before-- at all!! BAD KELLY.
On the food side, I've been a bit bored. Just plain bored lately. I wrote to Dr. Mike and told him about it and how sometimes I know I haven't eaten my allotment that day and I hate the idea of "force feeding" and he wrote back and said it's not bad to have days like that where your appetite isn't there, and that he is not a fan of force feeding either. That made me feel better- NOT that it is a goal to not eat-- do NOT misinterpret me. Sometimes I'm just not in the mood and it's maybe 7pm and I dont' feel like making a protein shake then just to eat because I "SHOULD". Does that make sense?
Now, I must go hit my strength circuit. Yesterday -- was a rough day and I did not workout. I just couldn't really do anything. And now I'm ready to bounce back. I know I will feel 200% better after my sweatfest. In the mean time, please enjoy this babble-on-athon below- I did a wrap up of all my favorite Reebok clothes/shoes from this year for you, per many of your requests. Will do the other brands and categories coming up so you can get your holiday gift guides going......yes, the holidays are here.....can you believe it?
What are your workout plans for this weekend? and hey give me some new favorite meal ideas if you think of it. I'm bored. ;-)
