Insanity The Asylum Day 13 – Strength

May 2nd 2011

What a day today. I go to bed last night around 9:30pm and wake up to my 5 year old staring at me at 1:45 in the morning. He had a bad dream and wanted to get in our bed for a little. The next few hours were spent with his legs in my kidneys. Finally at 4:30 I carried him to his own bed. Got an hour of sleep without being kicked. It was awesome. Alarm went off at 5:45 and I had to get out of bed. Day 13 was waiting. I picked up my phone to check messages. I had 3 text messages and one told me to turn on the TV and that Osama Bin Laden had been killed. What the heck? Wow. So I had to blank that out of my mind and get right to my workout. I could have sat there and watched coverage all morning but turned the DVD player on and pushed play.

Feeling awesome. I can’t believe it is only day 13. I feel like I’ve been doing this for a month. Started off with a cold and delayed Day 1. Had a still have a slight cough but I’m pushing through. It is not as persistant as it used to be. Drinking my Shakeology every day and for the last 5 days I’ve tracked every bite that has gone into my mouth. The first week of the Asylum I was winging it and lying to myself. Something clicked. The Weight Watchers training paid off. If you bite it, you write it! So that is what I’m doing.
I want to have great “after” pictures. I feel my strength is improving. My energy level is up and my mood is awesome.

At the end of the video today Shaun T. (who happens to have a birthday today) said something made you get up and push play today. Something in your mind told you that you had to do it. If it were up to your body you wouldn’t do it. Yes. Something in my mind did tell me to do it. It would have been much easier to lie in bed and sleep for one more hour. But lying in bed will not get me to my goals.

If you can dream it, you can do it. My favorite quote by Walt Disney. It is so true. What are you dreaming about?
