This post is a general shout-out to not only those of you who are taking on the Tony Horton 90 Day Challenge, but to anyone who works out consistently. Because let’s face it – working out is HARD.
Especially in this weather. It’s so difficult to envision yourself on a warm, sunny beach somewhere to get the motivation for that spring break bod when it’s approximately -12 degrees outside and or raining enough to put you in that “meh” mood. Or who knows, we live in Ohio and there’s a possibility you might have to trudge through 4 feet of snow to get to the gym next week. We won’t jinx it though!
Once you actually muster up the energy to drag yourself there after a grueling day of classes, the real struggle begins. Although, I’ve recently noticed that there are some of us who struggle more than others. I’m sure we’ve all seen those people who are somehow able to work out in jeans.
JEANS. Made of DENIM. The most restrictive material ever placed upon this good green Earth. I can hardly bring myself to wear jeans to class because they’re too uncomfortable, let alone engage in rigorous physical activity and sweat in them.
I even saw a guy in a polo doing crunches the other day. I mean, maybe there’s some hidden benefit that I’m just not seeing, but I’m not entirely sure about that one.
Regardless of what you’re wearing, if you’re getting on that #NewYearNewMe grind still, GOOD FOR YOU. Keep up the good work, because you rock.
Everyone should come check out the man, the myth, the legend, TONY HORTON himself when he comes to campus on Saturday, March 28th for a lecture AND workout session at the RPAC as a grand finale for the 90 Day Challenge! Grab your ticket at the Ohio Union Info Desk for the fitness class at 11am and Tony’s lecture at noon. You do not have to be a participant in the 90 Day Challenge to attend either portion of the event, just bring yourself, your ticket and your BuckID!
So keep up the good work, and get ready to OUABring It.
