This week is the last week of the month for me and with that being said, my stress level is really high. Heavy demands on my limited time and resources has caused me to be stressed out. Even with all of the stress I have been able to get my workouts in.
On Monday I went to my fitness class and I’m so proud to say that I actually completed one of the toughest workouts that I’ve ever done: 100 Burpees, 200 Push-ups, and 400 Jumping Jacks. Can I just say that Burpees and Jumping Jacks are two of my least favorite exercises ever but on Monday I threw all of that to the wayside and got it done.
On Tuesday I went to the gym and did cardio on the elliptical.
Today my plan was to go to my fitness class but I had to stay late at work and didn’t make it in time. I was tempted to chalk this day up as a loss but I decided to get up and hit the weights. A nice dynamic arm workout and now I’m getting prepped for bed.
I will say this, months or even weeks ago I would have let the stress that I was feeling keep me from working out but I’m getting stronger now, both physically and mentally. I’m continuing to press forward in spite of the obstacles and challenges that I’m presented with.
