It IS worth it

This heat is such an extra challenge for me. It seems to just zap any extra energy I may have – making tough workouts that much tougher. I do have to say though – I am happy I get it over with early in the morning. I can not imagine having to go in the evening and endure the hot, sticky heat.  And my body is just angry with me – I am sore and having to do those checkpoint pushups burpee things..I was groaning the entire time – it was a mix of groaning and ow’ing. I did not finish in the 30 min time limit. I think i was like a 1:30 over which is no surprise. I really had to dig deep inside to find the mental grit to continue on especially with the jump ropes. I am happy the week is almost over. Oh, and even though I am whining about the heat and my soreness – it still makes me happy and proud of myself that I do this day in and day out. It is WORTH it.
