For the first time since we began the #GetFit project, I had ZERO motivation to get to the gym yesterday. I was sluggish and just wanted to stay in bed.
The funny thing is, John was in a cheery, happy mood and ready to go workout. I think we might have a case of body swapping going on here!
I thought… maybe by the time we got to the gym I would be okay, but when Jeff and Todd greeted us, all I wanted to do was grumble at them. I had no desire to be there. The workout was hard. My body was stiff. During every single rep all I could think was “I want to quit!”.
On top of all that, Todd pushed me quite hard. In fact, harder than any work out before. He increased my weight. He had me do more sets of weights than ever.
Even though I wanted to quit, I pushed through. Normally, if Jeff or Todd asks for 12 reps, I’ll try to do 15 on at least one set. I did not do any “extra reps” yesterday, but I DID complete the work out.
Which is all that matters, right? We all have bad days. The question is what you do with your bad day.
