I totally didn't want to go to the gym today. I was in a sour mood and feeling stressed about some stuff that's going on behind the scenes.  The good thing about having a set appointment with a trainer is that I can't just not got. He's there waiting for me so I have to buck up and go.

I walked into the gym with a smile on my face. Talking myself into working out and realizing that a great workout will help ease some of the frustrations I am feeling with another situation. I worked hard today. I didn't take as many breather breaks in between each set. There was a lot of talking going on in my head. Had to let myself know that I wasn't going to run out of breath. My breathing was a bit labored at times but I was still getting oxygen and wasn't going to die.

While working so hard, Damon pulls out the red kettle bell. I was thinking "Whoa!  What's up with the red...I'm just getting used to the green". He saw the wheels turning and said something about how I need to remember how on the first day I could hardly hold the little yellow one. The red is just another stepping stone to get to the ultimate one: blue. YIKES!

So, for my last exercise for the day I got to put on the gloves:
This is no Damon was putting the gloves, what comes on the radio?  Yep!  You guessed it!  A little Eye of The Tiger!  We both laughed, then I punched him. HAHA!


  1. Hi Jenn! I always think of my time in the gym as a little vacation from my family and from work. It's just me time and it always brings a smile to my face.

    Perfect timing for the Rocky song!

  2. Love that song, and I love boxing :) Glad you had a good workout!
