I was going to write about how I've been feeling generally sluggish lately - abnormally tired. Yes, I have been working out, but I am not feeling energized, rather, I've been feeling listless and lazy.
But, I didn't feel sorry for them at all - the mother was so articulate and lives a normal life, as does the adorable, elfin First Grader. And, of course when I think of Heather and all that she does with one leg: ski, dance, ice skate, etc!
Basically, if you are born with a healthy body there is no reason to abuse it and shorten your life - yeah, I know I sound preachy, but I was looking at pictures of myself today from my indulgent days, and ask the question, why? Why would I put so much crap and poison in my body which is sure to shorten my life?
Anyway, enough of the soap box.
Today I had a bowl of fresh fruit, and a bowl of oatmeal, and then I went for my last training session. At $100 per session it was just too expensive to continue. I have no trouble motivating myself in the gym. I do like the boxing, so maybe I will look around at actual boxing gyms; I assume they are a lot cheaper if I choose to continue this great workout. Today I was feeling rather ornery, and being that I saw an exceptional documentary over the weekend, "Assault in the Ring," about boxing I was motivated to train as hard as possible. My footwork is coming along, and I was able to hit the speed bag consistently making that great sound that exudes manliness, badaba, badaba, badaba . And, I was really banging the mitts, grunting and moving and throwing lefts, rights, right crosses, and upper cuts, and even though I taped my wrists they still felt like breaking with each blow. OK, I got weak wrists, not that there's anything wrong with that.
For lunch was the typical salad, and for dinner, I picked up a salad at Chopt. I had some left over soup, but really I was in the mood of something with sustenance and hot - I should have heated up some VBites sausages, but was too lazy.
