Not good

A friend/trainer sent me a beginner crossfit workout last week and I finally got around to trying it just a few minutes ago.  The workout was 5 different exercises within a 20 minute workout time.  I made it 5 minutes.  Yep, 5 minutes.  After 25 squats, 15 situps, and 10 pushups, I was done.  Wonder how long I would have lasted if I hadn’t already lost 13 lbs?  Am I pissed off?  You have no idea how pissed off I am.  Problem is, being pissed off is not normally a motivator for me. Well, it is in some cases, but exercise isn’t one of them.

Not sure what I’m gonna do. I really wanna quit and say fuck it, but I can’t. Not quitting anymore just because it doesn’t turn out like I want.  Heh…only taken me 45 years to develop that attitude.  Think I’m going to have to find something besides crossfit for the time being. I need to be able to complete a workout if I want to keep going. I guess I can look at it like 25 squats, 15 situps, and 10 pushups is the most I’ve done in over a year.  At least I got off my ass and did something…but it sure doesn’t feel like anything.

    I just did 1.5 circuits of a Jillian Micheal’s DVD….. before I turned off the DVD and got some water.

    I’m not so disappointed because I will try it again tomorrow and go further. It’s really about small steps. I had another JM dvd 2 years ago and got so frustrated that I gave it away. But what good did that do since I had to buy new one. Just go a step further next time, then you will feel accomplished! If you want to ensure a workout, speed walk before hand for 10-20 mins. and then do the Crossift. It’s all about progress, not perfection…

    You don’t have to be able to complete the routine yet. You’ll build up the endurance to get through it. Stick with it, Dork.
