Dear Hater, You inspired me today.

Hello Hater 😉

Every now and then I receive an email from a true hater. Now I know it says more about them than it does me. However the one today struck all the right spots. Matter of fact it’s most likely from someone I know personally, at least it seems that way. I got this email about 30 minutes before my appointment at the gym with my trainer. So instead of turning in to a pity me situation I decided to get a jump start on my training. I got myself ready, full on pissed off, and went out the door. Then, as it was meant to be, I rolled my ankle on a acorn and busted my ass. I just laid on the ground and let out any curse word know to man. I was wondering why my hand and chest was hurting so bad, seems I fell onto the edge of the brick wall that edges the driveway. I ended up cutting my hand open, not horribly, just took a chunk of skin where my thumb meets my palm. I also have this scrape across my chest.

So as you can imagine my level of being mad just went up another notch. Instead of going inside and cleaning up my scraps and gouge I just went to the gym. Sure enough they have some first aid stuff there, so I bandaged my had up because I didn’t want to bleed all over their equipment. I got on the treadmill as I was going to do a 10 minute warm up walk before my appointment. Well guess what, of course I pick the one treadmill that can not handle my weight and the belt locks up mid stride and I almost bust my ass again!! What a day right? Haha .. Of course I can laugh at it now. So I then went upstairs and did the elliptical for 4 minutes and 50 ab crunches. During this time Tyler seen me and knew I was in a bad mood. Luckily for me my friend has decided to workout every Wednesday she can with me. Seeing her calmed me down a little, not much, just enough to not lose my shit. I almost walked out mid session, then I told myself “Fuck them, I ain’t letting that circle go around again. It’s go time” I did however stop recording, because I need to listen to my “go” music. So it’s a short video today. I got through the full hour and added in 50 crunches afterwords.

Who ever you are, thank you. You made a huge impact on my day. You helped make me realize I’m doing this for me, and nobody else. At the end of the day, when the smoke clears I will still be standing here, and most likely you will still hate your life so much you put down others to feel “good.” I know because I’ve been there to. I was a bully at one point in my life as well. Glad that has changed.

Now the only thing I push around is weight, because they give no fucks!!

Peace

-RAW-

PS Thank you Tyler for letting me blow off some steam in your direction today. You my boy blue!!
