I haven’t felt inspired in a while now. I have been working out as I told you but without feeling inspired. Normally when I work out I think inspiring thoughts and inspire myself to want more with my workout and in life in general. It’s the endorphins that you feel from working out. For some reason recently as I told you I haven’t felt inspired or that amazing high that we get from working out.
Today was my break through! I went to the gym and brought my boxing gloves just in case I wanted to use them. I had said I would use them but put no pressure on myself to do so. I went out onto the floor and went right to the leg machine and started doing that. Feeling unsure what to do next I decided to get my gloves and head upstairs. I had to get in the groove. First my headphones kept coming out then I hit the cord and my iPod flew across the floor! Instead of getting frustrated and going back to my normal routine I took the time to get myself situated. I got in the groove! I hit the over/under bag, speed bag and heavy bag. I alternated between the three of them and killed it! I was sweating with a big cheesy smile! Back to the “hardcore Meghan” I love! I felt great and my endorphins were flowing! I am back! I have been impatiently waiting for this inspiration and great feeling from my workouts to come back.
I hope that I can inspire you to keep forging ahead and switch up your routine. Something I have told you before. Don’t get in a rut with your food or your workouts. I didn’t think I was in a rut with my workouts. I was doing different strength training routines and alternating cardio in between. I have hit the bags before and enjoyed it but today it got me out of my rut. I can’t wait to go to the gym tomorrow and kill it. Not necessarily to hit the bags but to work out hard and enjoy every minute of it! Whether you want to or not try something new. Try something you haven’t done in a while. Switch things up you may see just like I did that you were in a rut and just needed a simple change. I have never done drugs but can only imagine that this high I feel after a workout like today is why there are addicts. I am an addict. I am thankful that the gym is my addiction!
Get out of your rut! Feel the high! Bask in it!
