Accountability? Who was I kidding......

As I ramble through life, whatever be my goal, I will unfortunately always keep my eye upon the doughnut and not upon the whole.

OK so I did honestly believe that if I wrote on my blog that I was going to go for a run yesterday that I would do it......honest!
I had every intention of going - really I did!
But (I so hate that word) I ended up making so many excuses -the main one being the wind - that I had to admit I just couldn't be bothered to go. There I said it. Lazy me could not be arsed to get changed and run!!
Obviously I regretted it the minute it was too late to go out for a run and convinced myself that were it still light and not 11:30pm that I would be jumping at the chance to get going. Funny how I do that!
But the honest truth is I just didn't want to go and couldn't be bothered with the effort - the wind had bugger all to do with it!
Least I'm still being accountable for not going  ;D

Today is day 6 of INSANITY which meant Plyometric Cardio Circuit. I first did this workout on Monday and actually found it harder today - I think I was putting much more effort in today.
In this particular workout Shaun T gets us doing these 'Suicide Drills' - you just know they're going to be hard with a name like that - and when I did them on Monday they made me feel really nauseous. I actually thought at the time that is was down to doing the workout on an empty belly so I started having a Banana before hand for the rest of the week and the nausea never returned - until today! It's those blinkin 'suicide drills' that does it. I don't know why although I am assuming it may be a motion sickness type thing because I do other moves that are similar and have no nauseous feeling s at all. 'Suicide drills' involve bending down at the knee, touching the floor, coming up and then quickly moving to the side before going doen at the knee, touching the floor, coming back up and moving to the other side - all as quickly as you can. Motion sickness me thinks!
Still, loved the workout as usual. I'm stoked that I'm still enjoying it as I've normally lost interest by now. Tomorrow is a rest day from Insanity but should still be a running day :(


  1. Insanity...Sounds like the right word for it girl! Kudos to you for being able to do it, I don't think I could. My brother and I were talking about it yesterday (he's a wrestler) and he says its all the rage with them. I don't think you're lazy at all for not running, probably just needed the recoup time. You keep doing what you're doing and keep loving the insanity, you are sure to reap wonderful benefits!!

  2. Thank you for the support and encouragement Brandie.
    I do love Insanity and I want to add Hip Hop Abs to the mix too but I think maybe I would be doing too much and get too worn out lol.
    You could do it honestly! I'm the most negative inmotivated person I know but I guess when you find something that interests you it just kind of works.
    Plus I want that ruddy Tshirt lmao.
