Miserable

The word I use to describe the last week. Some things I’ve learned this week: I don’t like working out at home I don’t like measuring my food I don’t like working out at home I don’t like working out at home I don’t like working out at home As you can tell there’s a subtle underlying theme…For those that don’t pick it up I’ll spell it out, I DON”T LIKE WORKING OUT AT HOME!!!!!!! It’s gotten to the point that I find myself dreading working out so much that I end up over sleeping and have to workout in …

Well, I’m glad you asked! That’s the day that a few co-workers and I myself committed to start a 90 day workout challenge. Back in June of 2010 I took part in a 90 day challenge through work and while I finished it (admittedly not putting 100% out every day) it was tough to stay on track because I only had myself to hold accountable.
