After you sit as a sedentary individual all day, staring at a computer, and breathing half the breaths that an active person breaths due to sitting there is no wonder you are tired and unmotivated.
130.8! So close enough with only 56 days (yes, I have officially begun my count-down) to go! I know that 56 days seems like a lot, but in the figure world, this is really CRUNCH TIME! In my case, crunch time means added cardio sessions! I am shooting for three pre-breakfast sessions per week, in tandem with two more long sessions (so five times a week total).
