I'm eating well and have been exercising every other day this past week. No tracking yet, but...I'm getting there.
Today I did Jillian's new Thighs and Butt workout in the morning. It's got some really good strength in there (can still feel it now), but it could stand to have some more cardio. i'm trying to figure out what I should pair with it...maybe 10 minutes of light pure cardio beforehand.
I'm home for the holidays, so I went out to lunch with a friend and was around for dinner with family friends. I did pretty well, all things considered. I had whole wheat frozen waffles for breakfast, sashimi with just a little white rice, miso, and a salad for lunch, and fish, salad, and a little potato for dinner. I had a tiny bit of chocolate cake for dessert, and a cheese sandwich and three graham crackers for snacks. All and all, a decent day all things considered.
I am feeling lazy -- it's break (I'm a student), and I just want to veg out. However, I actually have a ton of work to do and a ton of thinking to do about what I want to do with myself. But it's so much easier to fill my mind with nothing; browse the internet, reading about politics or celebrity gossip. I need to get at least two hours of actual, focused work in each day. Part of me is afraid to work, part of me is just straight-up lazy. I just need to remind myself how good it feels to be consistent and get in the habit of being good (i.e. spending time thinking and writing, spending time doing school work, getting in exercise and logging, plus eating well -- these habits aren't that hard, are they?).
