Really this is about getting back to fitness. I’ve had a LOT of changes in my life in the past 4 months or so. And because of those changes, life has gotten in the way of exercise. And as a result, I’m having to reboot.
So tonight, I lay on the couch, snuggling a very sexxy chef…and the urge to get back there and be accountable was somewhat overwhelming.
I wanted to skip derby tonight. But I wanted to go more than I wanted to skip.
I want to be fit, healthy, and comfortable in my skin. I am not fit nor comfortable in my skin. Healthy is uncertain. I think I am, but probably not as healthy as I want to be.
I got to practice, skipped my favourite part of the warm up, and we got skating.
I had some issues with my foot – this is nothing new – I think I’ll just have to learn to live with the pain, or find a better insert or new skates or something.
But I practiced.
And I had a freaking blast.
I have a goal for the remainder of October. My goal is to lose 10lbs.
My secondary goal is to hit 30 laps in the gym. Tonight, I hit 28. With a cramp in my leg (WTF IS UP WITH THAT?!?!?!). The cramp that plagued me while trying to benchmark. The cramp that is the bane of my derby existence.
But I will hit 30 laps by Nov 1. And lose 10lbs.
I’m done with feeling like crap. I have something exciting happening in the future and I want to be able to feel and look my best. And next derby season? I’m jamming. Fuck this “I’m not a blocker” crap.
I’m a jammer. And I’m going to jam at least half the games.
