Rolling… er, Kerplunk

I rolled tonight in jujitsu…once.

It’s been so long since I rolled that I couldn’t remember which was my good side and which was the bad side. I thought really hard about it but couldn’t figure it out so I finally just threw myself on the mercy of the mat and rolled!

50/50 chance, right?

Took me awhile but the verdict is in. Based on how my ribs feel, I did the “shove a box off the back of a speeding truck” kerplunk. Kinda like I described in this post: Rolling, Rolling, Rolling

I’ll try the “good” side next time…if I can remember which that is!

Workout Inspiration

I never know where my workout inspiration’s going to come from. Sometimes it’s from one of the blogs I follow, sometimes from a friend, sometimes it comes from the too-small clothes in my closet, and sometimes from some random place.

Tonight I was inspired to work out by our company’s CFO, Tony. My son’s a personal trainer with a golf specialty so he does a lot of training at local golf clubs. He recently started training my company’s CFO – which is highly entertaining for me because I get to hear both sides of the story!

I can tell they are enjoying working together. Tony tells everyone at work that my son is killing him, and my son tells me to check on Tony to see if he’s alive after a grueling session. 🙂

Tonight Tony stopped by to say he is feeling more energized and productive, thanks to his workouts. That was great in itself, but then he went on to tell me about his recent accomplishment. He was excited and I was excited for him! In just a few short weeks, he’s now able to do something he couldn’t do before. Success!

Tony’s enthusiasm stuck with me, and when I got home this evening – tired and just wanting to sit down – I remembered Tony’s accomplishment. And more than his accomplishment, I remembered his enthusiasm. I want to feel that enthusiasm too! I want that feeling of accomplishment. So I allowed myself 20 minutes to sit on the couch with the dogs crawling on me, and then I got off the couch and got to work!

I did some work on my heavy bag, used my resistance band in several different ways, did a short wall sit (should have held it longer) and went back to the heavy bag for some more work. For not wanting to work out, I did a decent job!

Tomorrow maybe I’ll be my own inspiration. If not, I don’t need to look far to find some!

What inspires you?
