War wounds help keep me motivated!

Monday, November 01, 2010

I've got a huge bruise right above my right hip and its great, even though a bit painful. The bruise is from using my mom's weighted hula hoop for the last couple of days. It is not as intense of a workout as I used to do but the fact that I've done it for three days in a row is an accomplishment in and of itself. I have also been throwing in some strength training in, which surprised me. Three sets of squats for the last three days have caused my glutes to be sore in a good way. Today I threw in some push ups, crunches, and planks. About 20 min after finishing those I took out my resistance band and did bicep curls and a few other exercises that I don't exactly know the names of. I feel good knowing that I'm doing more than the absolute minimum. I'm also not overindulging as a reward for exercising more. In normal circumstances I would celebrate with an ice cream sundae or something, but my reward tonight was a half glass of white wine. I may celebrate with a latte on my way to work on tuesday if I'm doing this or more again tomorrow. I almost feel silly for being so proud of myself, but I'm sure many of you on here can relate to these successes in ways that those who haven't done the yo-yo dieting can't. Well, the point of this post is to say that I'm proud of myself and staying motivated. I hope you are too.

    Those are accomplishments - just being steady with the routines and sticking with them is a big, big deal!

    Congrats, and keep up the good work!
