The other night I watched the movie KICK-ASS and for some odd reason the character HIT-GIRL inspired me. I know…weird…she’s like 10 or 11yrs old but she was killer…literally! I just loved the focused attitude, lack of fear and confidence she had. I would have loved to have had a character like her to look up when I was a kid instead of Barbie…bleh!
KICK-ASS also had a killer soundtrack that made me wanna be active. I downloaded it last night and totally felt like working out while listening to it.
So…somehow a movie based on a comic book managed to re-motivate me. Last night I did Kenpo followed by Chest & Back done Crossift style and I also did Ab Ripper 200. This morning I woke up and did some 10 Minute Trainer Yoga followed by Plyometrics and then did the fitness trail with my neighbor. I know…it sounds like a lot and I will be achy but getting back on track is worth it me. I needed to find that focus and confidence that I lost when I couldn’t complete Insanity. (Plus I scheduled a 60 minute Deep Tissue massage for tonight….ahhhhh….can’t wait!)
I’ve realized how strong I have become mentally as well as physically. I have come so far in this journey and I am happy I found some inspiration to keep pushing. I can’t let the fact that I failed at a program set me back. Mentally I totally could have stuck with Insanity….but it’s the physical limitation that got me. I have to accept that I need to work harder and now I have new goal to work towards.
Between my Ninja Master SarahRocks!, Hit-Girl, my psycho buddy Pascal and all of the wonderful Beachbody Coaches I have met on Twitter I am sure I will reach my goals and KICK-ASS along the way!
