I did my exercise dvd tonight from 9:15--9:45 and I didn't barf like I though I would. And I actually did it!
Haha...I'm surprising myself more and more each day.

So I wrote out this whole blog yesterday and SP decided to delete it. How fun.
I wanted to share with everyone the effect that joing challenges has done to me! I'm doing a "Jumpin' into June" challenge with my PCOS team--setting a fitness minute goal and tracking every few days, and a 30 Day Shred Challenge--doing Jillian Michaels' DVD program for 30 days.
So, I had a long day yesterday and ended up doing my Nia class at 4:30. I got home, ate dinner and was lounging around on the couch. 9pm rolled around and I didn't want to do my 30 Day Shred. But I though to myself, "I made a commitment to myself and I'm going to log my minutes. This is what healthy people do--they don't make excuses!" So I got off my behind and did my exercise video at 9:00 in the evening.
I never would have done this usually! I was so proud of myself!
But then there's today.......
I got up around 9am this morning. After showering and breakfast, I didn't do my shred in the morning since I had done it 12 hours before.
I went to work (I'm a massage therapist--for now) and my boss/owner of the place where I work was out of town. So that means I get more massages then normal. I usually do 1 or 2 a day. Today I did 4 and 3 of those were deep tissue. Ugh!
So I'm sore from all the exercise, tired from work and what do I do? I think to myself, "Oh, I've been really good all week, I can have a splurge meal." So I probably ate 2000 calories. And now I feel horrible and like I'm going to pop.
And I still want to do my exercise video, but I think that might make me barf....which might not be a bad idea....hahahaha! (I'm just kidding, I've never made myself throw up on purpose.)
So I need to stop rewarding myself with food. And I encourage everyone to join some kind of challenge. Because it's that little bit of extra motivation that makes me want to get off the couch and do it--the extra accountability!
Another funny thing was that I've been logging my fitness minutes into SP and it told me, "You have far exceeded your fitness minutes for the week. You might want to change your calorie range." That made me laugh a little bit.
I'm not really seeing changes (ggrrrr!) but I know it takes time. So I'm going to be patient. Kind of.

So since my air conditioning has been broken for 2 1/2 days, I didn't do my 30 day shred yesterday....it was like a sauna in the house. But after the guys installed the new coil last night, I told myself I would jump back on and do my exercise DVD. But let me tell you---it was not easy. It was probably easier going from day 1 to day 2 than taking a day off and not doing it. Maybe that's part of how it works....it builds upon itself.
But I'm proud that I pushed through and did it. I needed to! I have been feeling small changes in my body and that is awesome! But my mind is still wandering. Two nights ago the DH and I went out to Beef 'n Bun (BBQ place) for the brisket poboy basket filled with fries and calories. I ate most of it. But barely went over my calorie range. Yesterday for brunch (I woke up late after a sleepless night with no ac, so didn't eat breakfast) I ate Chipotle....granted I ate half of it at 11 and then the other part at 4, but I still stayed in my calorie range.
I just don't like justifying not healthy choices if I can "stay within my calorie range." I'm addicted to bad food so that is giving me an out to go get it. During my work-out this morning I was sitting there thinking, "what can I hit on the way back from dropping off the movies from Blockbuster?" I mean....here I'm sweating my butt off thinking about food. Yikes!
Saturday is my 24th birthday and I'm forseeing cake and ice cream. I'll have a little bit but not pig out. We are going to my parent's retirement house (they're still in their 50's but bought the land and built the house to start paying it off) out near San Antonio. It should be a fun weekend. I'm bringing my exercise video with me too.
I'm just proud that I'm seeing progress and I'm sticking to it, and not saying the old, "well, I messed up once, I guess I should give up." I liked the brushing your teeth analogy....it was a good one!
Anyway, I need to hit the showers and do my errands.
