I hate this part right here
♫ I hate this part right here. ♫
Heard this lyric on one of the songs Katie played during our workout last week. It truly describes how I feel about getting back in shape again.
I can honestly say that I was in the best shape of my life a few years ago. I was working out every morning in a boot camp, playing soccer 3-4 days a week on the side, and close to my goal weight. Slowly I began to cut back on my gym workouts, eating regime, and soccer playing. A few years go by, and next thing I know, I am out of shape and packed on the lbs again! So frustrating.
So I hate this part right here. The getting back in shape part. The part where I have to get up at 4:45 AM and get in a cold car to drive to the gym and get my butt kicked for an hour. I hate this part right here, because getting in shape is not easy. It is not enjoyable or fun.
The fun part comes later. When I don’t feel like my body is 80 years old. When I get to pull out my “skinny clothes” from the back of the closet and have a whole new wardrobe again. The fun part comes later when I see people I haven’t seen in awhile, and they exclaim on how much weight I have lost. That’s the fun part.
The fun part is driving home from the gym, endorphins flowing, shirt drenched in sweat – knowing that my workout is done for the day, and most people are just getting out of bed.
Nothing good in life comes easy.
