Well isn't it funny that I decide to start on August 15 and on my very first day I hit a snag. It was completely avoidable and in my control, and it's going to serve as a lesson in accountability going forward.
I could have told you all a little fib, stating that I had completed my first HIIT training. That would've been a lie.
I woke up Tuesday early with the intention of crushing my workout before my networking meeting, but I hit snooze as we all do from time to time and woke up with not enough time before my appointment.
Knowing that I was going to the Nordic spa with my girlfriends in the afternoon, I decided or rather conceded that I would complete this work out after the spa late in the evening. I spent seven or eight hours in the Nordic baths, allowing for a mindset refresh and a lot of great conversation. It was a mental work out, that's for sure! But nope, very little physical activity accomplished.
By the time I returned home, it was approximately 9 PM and I ate and got a little bit of work done. My body was drained, and my head was not in the game.
Instead of being completely overwhelmed and disappointed in myself, I decided to allow this to be a lesson learned. When I make a commitment to get up in the morning, I need to follow through if I'm going to do all 100 days of this challenge. And, as hard as this is for me to admit, I need to be authentic with all of my followers as well as with myself.
Here we are on day two (actually day 1) and I am completely determined to complete two workouts to make up for yesterday and be unwavering in my resolve going forward! No plans, spa dates, meetings or otherwise will get in my way of this challenge.
Why? This is now my top priority; my health and my fitness are at the front of my mind, and I cannot wait to see the results from both the physical and mental standpoint.
