A Series of Unfortunate Events (my life, not the book series) kept me away from the gym. As a single mum, the kids come first, of course, and work comes second, so there was a distinct lack of ME time which translated into no GYM time :( But I didn't give up, and I didn't say - "Oh well, I've already blown it, no point in going back." I went back today and did 25 HARD and FAST minutes on the freaking elliptical machine. Tomorrow, I think I'm going to do 10 minutes on the elliptical, and venture over to the circuit weight training area that they have set up. It's similar to curves. I'm NOT going to do the cardio in that section because it's repetitive up and down on a step, and it really hurts my knees, and then I'll go back and and do five more minutes of cardio. That's the plan anyhow. We'll see if I have the guts to do it. I'm really reluctant to try the weights. I'm going to feel like everyone is staring at me. Logically I know their not. I'm not that important except for in my own mind, but still the fear is there.
I also have been eating this soup I found in this month's issue of FIRST magazine. It's kinda sorta nummy, and you're supposed to eat it for lunch and dinner, but I'll be honest, that's getting old fast. HOWEVER, if it does all it claims to do - detox, fat flush, etc - I'll deal with it.
Tomorrow is biggest loser weigh in day at work. I do hope I lost something. Fingers crossed - xposted at colormeskinny.com
