In my sister‘s oh-so-wise words this morning, I definitely needed to “Embrace the Sweat.”
I got so caught up in my own thoughts running around in my head about all the items on my to-do list that seem to be piling up on me again that I wasn’t even enjoying this morning’s workout. How sad is that? I LOVE to workout, this much you all know, so why ruin it by letting my cluttered, stressed thoughts override the power of a good sweatfest?
Especially during one of my favorite STS workouts – it’s in the meso 2 series and its a leg workout. It was one of those love-to-hate workouts too. It’s filled with a series of trisets – basically three sets of three leg exercises done back-to-back three times. Rest, move on to the next triset of a different set of three exercises done back-to-back before moving on to the final triset, topped off with calf raises (which are already screaming at me, I might add). I swear, meso 2 leg workouts are probably the most intense and sweat-inducing leg workouts of the entire STS series, and I love every minute. So I kicked myself halfway through after my sister’s text comment about “embracing the sweat” and ended up with a great latter half to the workout. I must say, I think I love leg workouts best of all weight training workouts. Though, I’m also partial to a good bicep and shoulder weight lifting routine, too. 😉
So yeah, I have got to get away from letting outside thoughts clutter up my workouts – they are my ME time, I’m doing myself a total disservice by not embracing every sweaty minute, am I right?
On that note, I’m off to plow through a jam-packed day before heading out for some Kick training – we’re focusing on kicks tonight in preparation for *another* sneak peek on Thursday night followed by, dum dum dummmm, the big LAUNCH on Saturday! Wahoo!! I seriously can’t believe it’s almost here, I’m so excited, and, not gonna lie, really proud of all my sister and I have accomplished in such a short amount of time. Go us. 🙂 Annnd, we should have our Kick tanks for Saturday so I’ll even feel more badass with my gear on from head-to-toe – I promise to take a picture of my sis and I before we head over to the launch. It’ll be a goody. 🙂
