As I head into week 3 of training with Richard and going to the gym I want people to understand that I am doing this challenge for not only the physical feel good but also my mental and spiritual feel good. I was challenged last week physically, and I experienced a flow of emotions during Friday’s workout. I began the week strong and felt really good. I was so proud! But come Friday, I was tired and the overcoming feeling of self doubt came over me in the middle of my workout. I stood there staring at this huge tire that Richard expected me to flip over about 10 times back and forth during 3 sets of other exercises as well. I was so intimidated! He calmed me down through some meditation and finally it hit me…he was NOT going to let me quit. Even though I wanted to really bad. He kept reminding me to remember what I was doing this for…ME! And you know what, I didn’t quit. I finished. It taught me a lesson. The things in life worth fighting for do not come easy.
