It is the NFL postseason. Usually, I would be knee-high in chicken wings, but the new me only had a handful of peanuts. This past week in the gym was better.
The workouts are still a little rough, but I am starting to get the hang of it. I am starting to get to know my trainers a little better, which makes the workouts seem not as hard. I am starting to push myself harder each day on certain exercises.
I am eating healthy. I am on week three of my diet and I have not cheated once. That said, each week is getting harder and harder. But if I stay focused, it will pay off. One thing my personal trainer Trevor Tieche says to me if I am struggling or I have 10 reps left and my legs or arms are burning is, "What if you had to?"
What that means is even though it hurts and you think you cannot do it, push yourself to do it because, "What if you had to?"
If I get into that mindset and focus on this FIT Challenge, I will do just fine. Everybody at home and work is still very supportive. Everybody around me is behind me, which is gonna push me though the year and, hopefully, make me a happier and healthier person.
