Alright guys. Motivate my lazy butt.
Since I moved back from Seattle, I have grown in many ways - my business has taken off, I've finally started writing in a semi-serious fashion, my love life and social life could not be better.
The one thing that is definitely flagging is my athletic life. I took about six months off from martial arts of any kind (the longest I have ever gone without fighting mans), and finally got back into it by way of getting into sword stuff. Which while neat, is definitely not nearly as physically demanding as Muay Thai or Sambo. I've gotten involved in a performance art group where I'm doing some dance and gymnastics type stuff, but again, not quite the same.
I've been trying to go the gym and lift to fill the gap, but keep running into the problem of I Just Don't Wanna. I'm getting lazy. I lift *maybe* once a week. I used to be motivated by insecurity - about my looks, about my fighting ability - but sadly maturity has crushed that motivating force. I need a new one.
My body looks the same, but I am definitely losing my superhuman strength. No more 240 lb ATG squat, that's for sure.
Recommendations? I've thought about trying out Crossfit or some similar style of classes, with the hopes that will keep me engaged and motivated more. I've thought about getting back into MMA again at my old Ann Arbor gym, which was quite the workout. I dunno. Like so many Americans, I have this vague desire to get Swole as ****, but when it comes to actually embarking on that journey, I keep prioritizing other things higher. I feel like if I don't act fast, I'll never realize my dream of weighing more than 165 pounds.
