After six weeks of complete and total body devastation, I am simply going to sum it up by saying this:
Every fiber of my being is tired or aches.
I have been working out twice a day six times a week with a clean up work out on Sundays. This means that for an hour from 5:45 a.m. to 6:45 a.m. I do cardio and abs. Then I come back for two or more hours after work and lift weights with a bit more cardio after. This is a lot harder then it sounds, truly.
What is killing me is that my blog and the time I am spending with Jim is suffering. The good news is that I am getting in great shape and will have a long, hopefully healthy life. The bad news is that I am mentally and physically tired.
Even more amazing is that I have to force myself to eat the way I need to. Twice today I had to make myself eat to keep on the schedule I have. This is very scary for me as I normally eat way too much and gain weight easily. What it shows me is that I am just that fatigued.
Now I am not saying this as a pity party. It is par for the course and I only have six weeks left until I am done. Halfway there and all that, you know? What I want to communicate is that I am tired so my blog is suffering. I feel bad, and really appreciate you hanging in with me on this sometimes insanely cool and sometimes insanely nuts journey.
It is going to be so worth it. I know it. I have lost the body fat, inches, and weight that prove it. The downside is the sheer physical exhaustion and trying to let my body recover. Stick with me as I navigate this tricky game! It may even be a bit inspirational. :-)
