All right. I did it. I got up off my thang tonight and did this Bodyrock:
Some modification necessary. I know I've lost strength this week. It's okay. I'll get back. The most important thing is that it wasn't a longer break.
I fell off the wagon for a week. Don't ever start thinking, "It's been a whole week, everything is shot, I might as well not do anything tonight either" because then two weeks will go by, and then three, and then a month and before you know it, you're right back at the beginning. I slipped. Yes. Happens to everyone. But I'm catching myself and pulling myself back up. I hope this can help someone, maybe.

I wish I could write about what's bothering me, but I don't know who could read it and I hate those passive-aggressive internet idiots and I never want to be one, so I have to keep my mouth shut to maintain my class and maturity. Small price to pay.
Suffice to say I've had a tough week. Personal stuff.
I haven't worked out since Saturday. This is the worst I've done since August 21. I had such a nice streak going and I let stupid stuff wreck it.
I haven't tracked my food... I haven't really hogged out either, but even so. Tracking is important.
Friday's the start of a new week for me so I really don't see any better time to get myself under control.
Anyone want to text me today around 5PM and remind me to get my butt in gear?

This is the first week since August 21 I have taken more than 2 days off from working out in any given week. So that's pretty good, but I don't want to take a 4th off. Vacation wiped me OUT! I went home last night and just went to sleep! But before I passed out, I also washed my workout clothes- all of them were dirty and gross, so I think that had a little bit to do with me not wanting to work out. Who wants to put on wet, nasty clothes?
And then, since I took a nap, I woke up ravenous. I ate the chicken salad I had planned to eat... then I had some Nutella for dessert... then I ate the last piece of buffalo chicken pizza... then a second dessert... whew.
So the first day of November was not so hot. But I am feeling a little bit more rested, albeit kind of gross from eating too much and not working out for THREE days, yuck. But the good news is that I can turn it all around. It's going to be a gorgeous night, I have fresh, clean workout clothes, I have my meals planned out and I'm flushing myself out with some green tea right now.
It's not how hard you fall, it's how high you bounce. Get back up and do this thing!

It bothers me when people come home from vacation and say "back to reality". Why does the daily grind have to be the reality? Why is the unpleasant part the real part? My vacation was real. Family, friends, laughs, memories... that's MY reality.
I had the most wonderful time at home. I kept up with my workouts on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Tuesday I worked all day and drove 7 hours home, and Sunday I was on the road for 10 hours, getting back here and stopping to visit friends. I got very little sleep while I was at home, and I am absolutely exhausted, so I am taking tonight off and going to bed early as well. I fear that if I don't, I might crash and burn and that will REALLY set me back.
I have to say, I rocked October.
September was really good as far as workouts, but I slipped with a healthy diet and only lost one pound in September.
In October, I worked out 25/31 days and lost 6.8 pounds. I have realistic (bordering on low) expectations when it comes to weight loss, so 6.8 pounds in a month is a METRIC BUTTLOAD of pounds! I am very proud of myself and I'm looking to make November really awesome as well.

This morning I did the Hot Fit Tight Bodyrock.
Oh. "Fit Tight Hot". Whatevs.
After last night's burpee challenge, my muscles were pretty tired but I banged this out to the best of my ability! I was thinking about doing some jump rope intervals before going out tonight, but... I don't know. I don't think I'm feeling it. But we'll see, I can always change my mind.
I went out to lunch with a friend and got the soup and salad bar. It didn't really fill me up though, so after a short power nap, I had a chicken sandwich, a banana, and some baked Lays.
I took a nap because tonight's midnight bingo! I also baked two pumpkin cheesecakes for my mom's party tomorrow. One's done and the other is cooking right now. They smell sooooooooooo good. I don't really like pumpkin all that much but even I think this cheesecake is to die for.
I was in the kitchen baking when I heard my mom singing to herself, "Happy birthday to me! Happy birthday to me! Happy birthday, dear... ... ... ... me! Happy birthday to me!"
