Well, it's been a while since I have blogged, so I will catch everyone up on what's going on with me! I can honestly say that I feel like an "epic failure" here lately. Working out has been the least of my priorities. I have been so busy with my kiddos, and preparing for the last days of the school year, that I haven't really been focusing on me and what I need to do to get my workout in.
This weekend was busy. My hubby and I rebuilt our 18ft flower bed out in the front of our house, which has those retaining wall blocks (140 of them at 17lbs a piece) and shoveled in 2 truck loads of dirt! Good Lord do my forearms hurt. He was really sore this yesterday morning. Mine just ache here at work. Even typing is making them ache... lol But, now the fun part comes in..., planting (well, next weekend, as it is supposed to be close to 100 for the next couple of days! This is May, isn't it??! Lol
My walking with my buddy in the afternoons, is non-comparable to me going to the gym and working out for a full hour. When I walk, I don't feel like I am pushing myself hard enough (15min/mile, walking for 60min). I haven't been motivated to do anything, and I know that if I just got up and moved, or went to the gym, I wouldn't be feeling this way. Something is going to have to JOLT me to get me exercising again, because I feel great when I do it! I have to get back into going before I get home, because my kiddos are going to be out of school here soon. The thought of having to put on a bathing suit again, scares the daylights out of me. I felt great last year, even though I hadn't hit my goal. I was working out everyday. I will get there. I am just going through a phase...
Well, I hope I can get out of this blah, I know I'll feel better, but I just HAVE to do it! Have a fantastic week everyone. Stay cool (for you Wichitans), because it's going to be downright scorching!!
