Exercise: 50% of Diamond Cutter
Heartrate range: Anywhere from 125-169 (zone is 132-152)
Decided to try and go all out with the 50 minute Diamond Cutter tonight... however, around the 28:00 mark, my body said, "That's enough, Jim!" It is of the utmost importance for me to listen to my body. Forget about being hardcore or badass... I need to take baby steps to get back to the DC; even if that means sticking to Energy, FatBurner, Below-the-Belt & Red Hot Core for a while. In a sense, it kinda feels like starting over.
As I am typing this, I am a hot, sweaty, shaky mess. I really need to take it easy. I thought with the C4 Pink Lemonade-flavored powder, I could power through a near-hourlong workout. However, 28 minutes was enough for me.
Being back on the mat was so liberating for me. It was like nothing bothered me for that brief time. Nothing could stop me from doing what I needed to do to sweat, stretch, and just get in sync again. I will say, for the first time in quite a while, I did not feel like a social pariah.
Not sure when I'm going to schedule my next counseling appointment. Financial constraints are making it a tad bit impossible. (Although, I AM going to a NASCAR race in May! YAAAAAAY!!!!)
Anyway, that's enough from me this evening. It's a long way back to the top, but once I get there, I intend to plant my feet harder and stay there. Fight to stay on top again. Last time, I just didn't fight the elements of life. I was unprepared and fell rock bottom.
Living life at 90%,
P.S. I think the video in this entry fits me perfectly. "I'm gunna knock you out!"
