I’m not going to lie to you. I set today as my IGNITE – Torch start day and promptly regretted it when I woke this morning. I drove 14 hours yesterday, ate a TON of sugar, ate absolutely NOTHING healthy and didn’t sleep well last night. I have also been battling a sinus infection and a rotten cold.
But, when I commit to something, I stick to my guns. I put my workout clothes on, tied my red-headed afro into a top ponytail, got my kids to school, came home, went to the garage…and stared at my treadmill.
And stared. Excuse after excuse ran through my head. I’m sick. I’m tired. I should take a self care day. I should go sleep. My body is tired.
But…I had committed to my start day. So, I put on the Good Wife (the series I am currently running through, literally…see what I did there?!), looked at my workout…and GOT TO WORK.
It was the OHM’S Fav today. Oh yeah…it’s named after me, so I really truly do love this workout. Halfway through I found my breath. Halfway through I found my legs. I ended up doing the 22-minute workout at the highest incline and fastest pace I have ever done it at.
Yeah I did!
I had 30 minutes left in my allotted time to workout, so I got in the 24.5 minute Full Body Torch workout that is also a part of Torch Day 1.
I am feeling STRONG.
And hungry. No sugar on IGNITE and I’m definitely missing my sugar. But, I’ll drink a bunch of water, eat the magic fudge (recipe tomorrow if you’d like!) and commit to the next 28 days. Why? Because at the end of these 28 days I KNOW I’m going to feel fantastic, have more energy and will have increased my strength, endurance and cardio performance.
It’s worth it. It’s SOOOOOOO worth it.
Day 1 done. 27 to go. Thank God one is a cheat day! HA!
