New Blog, New Me

What Gets You Pumped?

Have y’all noticed that I hade this whole questions as blog titles thing going on? I didn’t mean to do it the first couple of times and then I went to read back over what I had posted and noticed the question theme. It took me a little thinkin to come up with today’s title! 😀

So yeah, what gets you pumped? If you’re on a lifestyle change/weight loss journey/diet/get a sexy bod.. or whatever you want to call it (lol), you’re going to come to a point where you want to quit! I know! Crazy right? You’ve come so far and accomplished so much! You have people tell you how fab you look. You feel great! But… It’s hard! It’s. So. Hard. You hit a little plateau or something happens and you get distracted. Maybe some horrible event comes, like the death of a family member, or you hurt yourself and get injured. For whatever reason you become distracted from your original goal. It happens. It sucks but life happens!

Last night I had a mini breakdown. I was going through some extremely minor issues, using the smallest excuse to try and talk myself into quitting. This happens a lot when it comes to my diet, eating a plant based, whole foods diet is the hardest thing I’ve ever done! And I fail at it sometimes..when I do it’s because I’ve talked myself into eating that stupid slice of chocolate cake or that yummy sushi roll. Well last night I was trying to talk myself out of Crossfit this morning. I’m to sore. I’m too tired. I need more sleep. I’m about to fall over. I need a break. I told some of my friends that I just wanted to get totally chocolate waisted! Just go into a massive chocolate stupor and sleep in. Hahahaha. Yeah. Not going to happen!

So before I could talk myself out of going (cuz really, I just started this Crossfit business, I need to go and get by butt in gear!) I finished my nightly routine of picking out my workout clothes (I like to match), getting my socks and shoes, washing my apple, filling up the water bottle, setting the alarm on my phone, whining on Facebook about how I don’t want to get up at freakin 4:50am (silly I know!), and planning what I’m going to eat after my workout. I just did it. Even though I didn’t want to!

This morning I got up when my alarm went off and I was back to normal. I didn’t give into that moment of wanting to skip the workout. I went to Crossfit and crushed it. I had such a fantastic workout and when I was done I felt pumped!

Woot! And icing on the cake (or maybe I should use a more healthy saying…) was that when I got into my car my new fav song had just started playing! I rolled down my windows, blasted it, and sang along. ((Im sure the cars I passed must have thought I was on crack, or something. Ha.)) The lyrics are perfect for where I’m at in life right now. It’s crazy how much a song can get you pumped!

Whoa
I’m waking up to ash and dust
I wipe my brow and I sweat my rust
I’m breathing in the chemicals
I’m breaking in, shaping up, then checking out on the prison bus
This is it, the apocalypse
Whoa
I’m waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my systems blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age

Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Whoa oh, I’m radioactive, radioactive
I raise my flags, don my clothes
It’s a revolution, I suppose
We’re painted red to fit right in
Whoa
I’m breaking in, shaping up, then checking out on the prison bus
This is it, the apocalypse
Whoa
I’m waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my systems blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Whoa oh, I’m radioactive, radioactive
All systems go, the sun hasn’t died
Deep in my bones, straight from inside
I’m waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my systems blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Whoa, oh, I’m radioactive, radioactive
