How it makes me want to scream.
I KNOW I have to do something different to get out of this ever-so-obvious three-mile-deep rut. I KNOW my body is just plain used to my same-old, same-old workout. Yes. I get it. But fuck me if I want to do anything different! I hate exercise, and getting on that damn bike is a battle every time. I just want to sit on the couch and not move. But I do it. I get on the thing and pedal and lift my weights for a minimum of 30 minutes nearly every day. I hate it, but I do it.
Yeah, I am whining here. I can hear you now. Well, Tammy, if you want to get out of your rut you have to change it up! You have to get out of your comfort zone!
BUT I LIKE MY COMFORT ZONE!! It's bloody COMFORTABLE!!
I don't know what I am going to do, but this shit has got to change.
I have been trying some "sprints" in my workout. I'm doing 1 minute of hard pedaling at level 4 (challenging) intermixed with a few minutes of medium pedaling with no weights and medium pedaling with 15-20 reps of each of my arm exercises with weights. I do about 8 different arm exercises. I did four sprints through my 30 minute workout and 4 sets of the arms. *Phew* I was winded, sweaty and felt my heart rate was much more elevated throughout the workout. I still finished up with my sit-ups and leg lifts. I actually felt nauseous at the end! Lol....is that a good thing?
Anyway, I thought maybe doing this more challenging workout might nudge my body into letting go of some weight! Time will tell.
