One of my commitments to myself in 2015 is to go and do and to keep it simple.
Upon the recommendation of my sweet husband, I gave 9round a try - a little kick-boxing based HIIT program.
On those early early mornings I crawl out of bed, head out the door, drag myself to the gym, and proceed to sort of physically torture myself, I leave with my heart full (and beating really fast!)
I wanted to symbolize both my literal going through the door and my sort of mentally going through a door with the whole 9round process.
The glorious truth about this program is that I don't really have to be in my own head too much - the workout moves too fast (simplify!).
And the glorious truth is that this program is done in 30 minutes (simplify!).
And the glorious truth is that when I leave, I am physically alert, mentally ready for just about anything that the world throws at me, and fully in the moment of "now."
I absolutely love it. Big huge heart love it.
Here is what is sort of shocking to me - and part of my journaling because I wanted it documented - I never thought I would love it.
I never thought it would do for me both physically and mentally what it does for me.
I never thought it would bring me so fast to a place where I MISS it when I miss it.
I'm completely surprised that this of all thing is restorative for me. and hello - Pink gloves...how can you ever go wrong with pink gloves?
