Back into the swing of things. I started my new workout routine 2 weeks ago and today beigns week 3. I feel great as my energy is consistent, my nutrition is back on track and my attitude is more confident and positive. Over the past few weeks I have focused mainly on core movements; push-ups, situps, dips, squats and lunges, but over thw eeekdn I realized that while I do feel very good I was becoming complacent and thats a dirty word to me. When one becomes complacent they get lazy and start to make excuses. Doing 175 push-ups a day can get old and boring so I decided to kick it up a notch.
On Friday I went out and hit the heavy bag for about 10 minutes and the workout I got was ridiculous. I was instantly destressed from a long week and felt brand new again. In my golden years I taught hand-to-hand with my Army unit and would occasionally be deployed stateside to assist in various training programs. I loved it. The idea of pitting yourself against someone else puts you on edge and brings the best out of me. I need to be challenged and constantly so I have incorporated fighting into my routine; kicking, punching, kneeing. To increase the intensity of workouts I have also began combos of punching, squats and kneeing which is killer. One it makes me feel even more confident if a situation ever arises where I need to protect myself or my family but also its a great COre workout as well as Cardio.
Keep Calm and Chive on my friends. This is going to be a killer week.
Today is a new day. You will get out of it just what you put into it. If you have made mistakes, there is always another chance for you. And supposing you have tried and failed again and again, you may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call 'Failure' is not the falling down, but the staying down.
