Link Love & Good Intentions...

Just the other day at work, a friend of mine came by my desk to tell me something very exciting. Even though I was on the phone, she anxiously stood next to my desk, just about ready to burst with whatever information she had to share. Not even a second after my phone call ended, this is what she tells me:

"I know you're busy, this is only going to take a couple of minutes but I know you're going to really appreciate this!!"

My response: ...Okay?

"I did the weekly challenge at my gym. And, I mean, THE weekly challenge! I can't believe I actually did this!"

My response: What's this weekly challenge?

"100 Jumping Jacks, 25 Burpees, 25 Mountain Climbers, and 15 Frog Squat Jumps. 7 minutes!"

My response (while my jaw drops to the floor, already getting pumped to try this out): You mean, you did this all in a row - - without stopping? Straight through??!?

Indeed, she did. She went on to tell me that this particular workout is equivalent to running 4 miles. Do I believe it? I'm not sure. Did I give it a shot? I sure did. In fact, the picture shows what I had intended to do:

I'll be honest with you, though. This is what I ended up looking like after doing that workout MINUS 10 Frog Squat Jumps:

I even had the good intentions of timing my new challenge but once I "completed" the workout and checked my phone, I forgot to push one more button to start the timer. Wha, wha, wha. I officially worked out for a good 10 minutes last night. Maybe 10 minutes.

I'm disappointed in myself because I didn't complete the full challenge. I'm proud of myself because I gave it a shot, even though I was feeling unusually fatigued yesterday. In the end, I realized I could beat myself up for failing but know it's always better than not trying, right? Tell me I'm right or I'll just continue obsessing over it! Okay? Okay, cool. Thanks for letting me vent.
