I’m tired. I don’t want to get up to feed the baby boy. Can’t he just grow up and go away to school already?
I know what you are saying. “You’ll miss this time before you know it!”. Maybe you are right. Screaming infants make it easy to forget that sometimes. Good thing they are so adorable, for about 5% of the day. And thank the Heavens for their natural intuitiveness, that lets them know when to smile or laugh when you need to see it most.
But seriously…tired. Coffee isn’t helping. I don’t think that cocaine would even help right now. Maybe I would have enough energy to get up and grab the remote, after a decent sized line. Not sure, never tried it before. The 80’s seemed to love it.
One thing that I AM willing to take, is the bull by the horns. Exercise and losing weight could help with my energy levels, I would imagine. Men’s Health seems to swear by it.
So, I have started a 45 day challenge to exercise in the gym, daily. In times where I can’t be at the gym, body weight exercises will suffice. Rolling off of the couch, sadly, does not count toward the daily goal. Oh, and as an added bonus, that workout has to occur at 5:00 AM. Lunacy, I swear. This is all as an ADDITIONAL exercise task, aside from my Rucking Program, Voyage to Lindisfarne, and 30 Day Wellness Challenge. Can someone send me a shrink, please?
Follow along as I start to try and get my Viking Bod on point. Here is today’s exercise regiment (if you can call it that):
Day 1: Viking Bod Training
Walk and Stretch: 10 min. Think about donuts.
Air Squats: 25 Squats. Think about crying. because I don’t have donuts.
Standing Dumbbell Curl: 25 lbs, 10 reps, 3 sets. Think about curling a drinking horn full of beer.
Dumbbell Press w/ Twist: 25 lbs, 10 reps, 3 sets. Think about lifting my Viking (Incan) bride above me while in the throws of passion.
Dumbbell Row: 25 lbs, 10 reps, 3 sets. Think about pulling my Viking Axe out of the skull of the vanquished.
Dual Pulley Pull-down: 42.5 lbs, 10 reps, 3 sets. Think about pulling myself up a wall of a castle I am preparing to plunder.
Walk and Cool Down: 5 minutes. Think about donuts again.
