I must say…I didn’t even realize today was Thursday until I checked my schedule. Holiday’s have a funny way of doing that to you I guess. So with that today it was easier I guess to think of Physical, mental and brags because I’m doing it on the spot. (Actually in retrospect shouldn’t that make it harder?)
Physical: As some of you know, my New Year’s Resolution was to do 365 days of core. If that is 5 minutes…fine it’s done. If that is 30 minutes for the day…wow am I overzealous. So with that physically I’m doing my core work. I never said I would be spending hours on hours everyday, but I think dedicating a small amount of time daily is easily doable. I want to reiterate…the challenge for me is not about getting a six pack. I don’t care. I don’t care physically if I have defined abs in the slightest…I want to have a strong core that will help with life versus a six pack that will help me either a. pick up creepers (gross) or b. Scare about creepers (that would be okay).
Mentally: This is a bit more personal but I’ve been issues and mentally struggling with how my body is absorbing sugar right now. I have felt sick all the time, and it has taken a toll on me. I also had a great week last week (with Tim and his family) and to come back this week and just feel blah, as well as sick…mentally I’m struggling. I’m just hoping that my body get’s back into it’s normal routine so I don’t spend another night (ie like New Years before my race) laying on the family room floor.
Brag: Speaking of New Year’s, I stayed up until 1:30 am (for me that is huge). Actually, I’ve been really hanging out with a lot of people and enjoying myself. I know I tend to brag about that a lot, but having social anxiety is not the same as just being anxious. It’s a pretty big deal for me to hang out and be social every day of week.
So that is that. Next week is my last full week until I go back to work so I’ll have some good brags.
Question for you: What are your PMBS?
