There are two things that I hate to have happen while exercising:
– The first is having my muscles hurt so badly that I can’t get my heart rate high enough to feel like I’m working out.
– The second is having my heart rate shoot up so quickly that I actually can’t do the work out properly.
The latter of those two situations happened to me today while I was doing P90X Intervals X. It only took a few minutes into the video for me to be huffing and puffing and hitting the pause button. I could feel my heart pounding. It didn’t get easier, but I soldiered through it. The only problem is that when I don’t have the capacity to push myself, I always feel like I failed at the workout…or that I didn’t even workout at all.
I know that’s not true. I did break a sweat, so I am proud of myself for that. But, I just know that the day I can do that Interval video nonstop, I will have reached a pretty good level of fitness. One day I’m going to be a champion of fitness and run marathons.
Anyhow, enough of that whining. Unfortunately, dinner was not super special, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
I’m one of those people who, from time to time, likes a bowl of plain boiled brussels sprouts and broccoli.
I devoured this while waiting for my salmon to cook.
Once it was done, I tossed the salmon into my empty bowl and ate it within minutes.
It’s seasoned with garlic powder, salt, oregano and cayenne pepper.
For this lazy bum tonight, I think it works.
Now I’m off to bed. I have really busy day tomorrow and need to wake up as early as possible.
See you tomorrow blog world 🙂
