Tonight I had a very nice workout. I made up my own Bodyrock-style workout with things that wouldn't aggravate my pulled groin, which feels much better, by the way.
I topped it off with jump rope intervals, 30 seconds of rest and 2:30 jumping. I'm taking my jumping interval up, up, up! I did that 6 times for an 18 minute cardio workout, and 15 minutes of jumping total.
I've been incorporating toe pushups into my workouts lately- I credit my dip station and pulling exercises for making this possible. I could NOT get up off my knees for pushups until I got my dip station and started doing pullups.
But I was still only bending my arms about 90 degrees... until finally today I was able to touch my chest to the floor and come back up. FINALLY!!!!! I feel like I have been trying to do that forever!!!!!!!!
I made Chocolate Covered Katie's chocolate pumpkin pie. People look at me weird when I say chocolate and pumpkin, but it's really quite fabulous. Link:
I recommend this highly! Very delicious and you don't feel stuffed and bloated after treating yourself. At least, I didn't.
I want to thank everyone who commented on my tiny pants blog. I went through and tried to respond to comments that lended themselves well to response, but if I didn't get you, know that I LOVE LOVE LOVE and cherish all the comments I receive.
I've been getting a lot of compliments at work this week. I haven't lost any weight since January, so I think it's just my radiance at fitting into my tiny pants that makes me extra attractive
Anyway, I gotta tell you, I'm fabulous at accepting compliments. People must love to compliment me because I EAT IT UP! I wasn't always like that though. In high school, at my very biggest of 270 pounds, I would FIGHT you over a compliment. Ugh, I wish I could just go back and slap myself for that... I have come to realize, it's really kind of tough to work up the courage to give someone a compliment, particularly someone you don't know very well. And if you respond negatively, all you're doing is discouraging really sweet, brave behavior.
How do you take your compliments? With a bit of sugar, I hope.
