Day 3: Post Midnight
Tons of articles show that the best times to work out is NOT at night. Common sense says so, even. Yet my procrastinating self wouldn’t break the habit of keeping things undone, but not this time. It was a determined achievement, a call to change habits and create right ones and develop a mechanical routine that would instill in me a desire to achieve a routine that is planned from A to Z and develops the right kind of motivation to keep on doing it. The moment i play “How Bad Do You Want It (Success)”, which is the audio version of the original inspirational video, I start to refresh my cause…why am I doing this…why should I keep doing this…and what drives my to continue instead of staying lazily on my couch.
It was a night of stress. With the pressure to study for a 3-hour exam the next day and the lecture courses were too much of a burden, I decided to focus on the material before I delved into my workout. It wasn’t until 2 am that I decided to take a break and work my body before I completely shut down. As the days move ahead, I find my body agitated, wailing at the sudden changes that happened at such a fast pace. Every muscle is aching, and that’s how I want it. My only care is to get enough sleep to recover my tissues, and hope the next day would be as bright as this one.
