Suck it up Buttercup.

My client laughed at something I said, one of a million dumb things I am sure and responded with this one. "SUCK IT UP BUTTERCUP".  She had heard this quote and found a lot of humor in it. I wouldn't say I found as much humor in it as I did truth.
My morning was a drag. I was crabby and emotional. I hate it when I let my emotions steer my ship. But then I heard Mrs Barbara..."Suck it up Buttercup!"
I was reading my devotional for the day trying to suck it up and was taken back when I read "blessings and cursings" in the passage. I had just blogged that last night. The whole passages was speaking to me.
As I continued to read I felt myself awakening. I could feel myself gaining strength. I could feel the words building me up and encouraging me to MOVE. And that is what I did!

I was supposed to run the track but I am not disciplined enough to go at it alone the way I should. I struggle challenging myself. Pushing myself to my limits.I shorten my limits and call it good.
So I just did a basic 9miles. I don't say this in arrogance, I am just saying that I didn't do speed work or a tempo, I just ran with no agenda except to accomplish 9 miles. Very windy out. Funny how you can't catch your breath when there is PLENTY of air blowing at ya~
"Fear doesn't exist anywhere except in the mind."
Today was one of those days I really wanted a coach, a trainer. Someone to challenge me and push me. Someone to analyze my running and times. I struggled all day. I let these thoughts hold me captive. I let them rent way to much space in my head. I entertained fear. Scared I would fail my goals. What a waste. The good news is I didn't invite anyone to my pity party! I hung out by myself.

Distance: 9:03
Time: 1:11
Pace: 7:53
My right knee was mildly hurting the first 5 miles. Great weather, a bit windy.

  1. I am Ryan "Energizer" Ehmann, owner of Altitude Fitness and I’ve been out of shape several times in my life, so beat down – tens of thousands of dollars in debt, depressed and my self-esteem so crushed that I was afraid to go out in public. I turned to the fitness industry as the vehicle to heal my mind and body, and that’s when my dreams began to become a reality. The power of a proven fitness program is life changing so just imagine how much more you could give to your family, career and friends if you were on top of your game?

    There is a champion in everyone…including YOU!

    If you’ve ever wanted to lose that extra 12, 18, 24, 36 (or MORE!) inches of Body Fat off your frame and experience the benefits of a healthier lifestyle, then this message will cut to the chase and give you the answers you’re looking for. My fat loss training system have taken me 28,882 hours and 10 years of personal training to Master it so years ago I quit working at Gold's Gym as the Fitness Manager and opened a small, private workout facility to educate people about foods, fitness and lifestyle. Altitude fitness is a fun family atmosphere that people come as they are in grey sweets, white T-shirts, no make-up and they are accepted as a team member who want to learn and get in shape. No one is judged, it's not a fashion show and no matter your health or fitness shape you are a part of the Fat Loss Team working together.
