“It’s never a question of can you… but will you?”

23 Mar

It has been a rough past couple days. Wedding plans had another kink thrown into them (we got it worked out), adjusting to the schedule for the next six weeks, and I woke up with a weird headache a couple days ago that hasn’t gone away. So I took my days off in a row, instead of spreading them out, but today I just wanted to workout. I feel sluggish when I go more than a couple days out of the gym and little things start bothering me more than they should- so, yes, I am addicted to working out 🙂 And while my head hurts more now, it was so worth it. (*For the record, I did check with a doctor yesterday but they didn’t seem concerned so I figured a workout was okay)

For awhile I was deciding if I wanted to go to the gym or just take another day off and be safe; and then realized that days like today are what dedication is about. It’s easy to find reasons to not get to the gym, but unless there’s a real medical reason, they’re just excuses. I did take it easier than normal as far as cardio intensity, but to really reach my goals I can’t find reasons to not go… that’s just standing in my own way.

What’s standing in your way?

Here’s the workout:

[I got a request to add videos of how to do things, I’m still trying to figure out the best way to do that.]

20 leg raises with 20 lb bar weight as counter

20 presses with 20 lb bar


20 oblique crunches/side

20 leg raises side to side with counter weight

20 presses with 20 lb bar


20 v-ups passing a ball from legs to hands
