I know I’m always starting my weight-loss blog entries with “I’m getting back into this.” It’s a bummer that I keep letting myself down when I fall off the wagon but at least I do get back on that horse and I try again, right? (I know I’m combining different analogies here but you get what I’m saying)
I did four Cassey Ho Blogilates videos in lieu of running at the gym. I worked on my abs, legs, arms & back and butt (tee hee) and it hurt the entire time.
A funny thing happens when you’re pushing yourself through a tough workout. Your thoughts start to wander, you sweat profusely and, if you’re a sensitive little thing like me, you may start to cry.
To be clear, when I say “cry” I don’t mean break down into hysterical tears in the middle of my workout like a crazy person. I mean, cry like in that way you do when you’re pushing through something and no matter what you’re going to get through it. Like childbirth. Or a hotdog eating contest. Or life, in general. I wasn’t in tremendous pain – I could definitely feel the burn but it wasn’t anything I couldn’t handle physically. I just needed to cry my way through it a little bit. And you know what? I got through the damn workout.
Oh it’s such a simple metaphor for life. I may have some tough, tear-filled nights that I’ll have to continue to sweat through but come hell or high water I will get through them. (Yay! Breakthrough!)
(In my defense, I really must say that Cassey Ho’s workouts are ridiculously hard so I’m sure a lot of people have cried through them. Confess your tears in the comments below!)
