Liberated.

Writing yesterday’s update was one of the more liberating experiences I’ve had in recent memory. Finally giving myself “permission” to not be perfect all time time felt incredible! I was in such a good mood all day yesterday. The feedback I’ve received from everyone has been very positive, and that means a lot to me. I think people understand that my intention is not to be lazy or slack off, but to shift some things around so that my life is a little more balanced and not so one-sided.

Of course as a self-proclaimed “all or nothing” guy (if I’m not doing “all”, then I must be doing “nothing”), there are significant challenges ahead for me. The trick here is going to be learning how to not be so lopsided in the pursuit of my goals. As several forum members pointed out yesterday, sometimes being moderate is in many ways more difficult than being 100% strict. This will be a learning experience for me and I don’t expect to get it exactly right the first time. But I tend to be pretty quick on the uptake, and I expect that with a little practice and some trial and error I’ll be soaring.

Today is a cardio only day for me, and I’ll be hitting those intervals hard! I still feel like my cardiovascular fitness level is not where it should be, and HIIT cardio is a great way to improve that (or die trying 🙂 ).
