So I went through two weeks of INTENSE training the last little while. Well, mainly 2 Mondays of intense training, why do you ask? Well I ended being out at the Odyssey on the past two Sundays until the wee hours of the morning. Two weeks ago we did a big show there, and the cast of Burn The Floor (including hunkorama Gary and two of the fiercest chicks I have ever met Karen and Ash) were there. So of course we ended up staying until the lights came on, then came back to my house to hang out. I was pretty much obliterated until 5 am. Then I had to get up for work in 4 hours, and then head to Bryan at Weights101 to do some training. Here’s the kicker, when I woke up, I think I was still a little drunk. I totally tasted the booze still even after dis-infecting my mouth with what felt like acid.
So I ended up having training at about noon-ish (which is the standard time), and it was incredibly hard, at first. Funny enough, even though there was nothing else I would’ve rather done just nothing that day, I felt like I had to prove something. Just because I went out the night before, and was up until the wee hours of the morning, doesn’t mean that that should be my excuse to not train. First of all, all that just burns off the booze, which even though I try to keep it in check, it really is hindering me a bit. But for me not to drink at all is completely unrealistic. It also just detox’s me completely with the oxygen bar post workout, and the detox sauna capsule (which, by the way I completely fell asleep in).
It also happened again this past Monday, just not as bad. I fought through it because I have to. I feel like right now if I weasel my way out even on one day, even if I’m STILL drunk, then I am not fulfilling my own personal goals and I know I’ll just end up slipping up. I’m still in a very delicate state where every day, every bit of food, every time I step on the elliptical is still super crucial. I know there are some people who cancel their training because they get tired, or are hungover, but I can’t do it, and I will not!
Unless I’m sick and physically can’t do it, I swear I won’t miss out on a session.
PS – I hate to say this, I really kind of do…but I’m starting to enjoy this. Measurements and photos next week!
