so, i just finished my NEPA, it was tough today, mostly because im having shoe issues.
this new pair i bought, New Balance, suck. give me blisters.
i also had a iced tea last night, and put lemon in it… just not thinking…
probably not a big deal, but none-the-less, im a all or nothing kinda guy, so i was a lil disappointed in doing that.
is cinnamon a okay spice to add to a shake? cause i did that too, it was delicious.
on the plus side, i couldnt resist the scale today at the gym. 203lbs. down 5lbs already at the begining of day 3! - im sure thats kinda just a shock factor to my body, a big inicial loss that will curve off, so im preparing to be dissappointed at my next weigh-in.
but still, after a discouraging NEPA, that was awesome to see!
and i still got to enjoy the sun-rise that God gave us this morning out the window of the gym.
weighing 203 is scary to me, but thats what makes it exciting! ive always been in some sort of shape, physical and active as i am, but i havent been below 200lbs since the 7th grade. ive always had a Mark Ripatoe approach, no one cares that you have a 6pack if youre a 160lb weakling. lol
so every time i got close to 200, i would freak out, eat more, and lift heavier.
but now im tired of always having a gut.
and i need a new challenge i suppose.
just lifting heavy i hadnt had any real gains for over a year now, and im not quite ready for what i know would push me through those plateaus. morally or finacially.
im also a restless person who needs something new all the time. been looking for the next thing in life, and for whatever reason, my life seems to mirror what i do in the gym, i think it more mental, when i employ discipline and passion and drive in the gym, it seeps over into my personal life as well as my spiritual life. however, even just appreciating simple things, like the sunrise this morning - normally i wouldnt have been conscious to experience that, but, since i was disciplined enough to get up and do something positive, God graced me some beauty that He created…
anywayzzz - i didnt mean to blog blog blog, just my thoughts as i am still gettin my feet wet on the journey of Velocity. lol
