My mama always taught me not to brag. She said it was rude. Whatever, I'm about to get all braggy. I work in a hospital and our patient load has been very low so we've been having to take turns leaving early. At first it was fun, but now, not so much. It's taken almost all of my vacation time so today I had to leave without pay. I was a little sad and tired and hungry and it was gloomy outside. My normal reaction would have been to come home and binge and watch t.v. and not do any exercise. Here's where the bragging starts:
1. I brought my lunch back home with me. Normally I would have left it at work and stopped at fast food. I brought my WW frozen pizza, orange and kashi bar home and had it instead of fast food! +1
Ain't it purdy?
2. I did 60 minutes of cardio, 40 minutes of strength training and 20 minutes of stretching. Seriously y'all...who do I think I am? some kind of fitness person!?! +1
This is me after Biggest Loser Calorie Knockout:
Ignore the chicken hair as I'm letting my bangs grow out.
3. Then, since I got off early, rather than napping...wait for it...I vacuumed and did dishes and made the bed and took a shower and still have tons of energy! +1
All the way home I had this little voice that was telling me to just go home and rest and lay on the couch and watch movies and eat hubby's cookies, etc.
I told that voice to SHUT IT!!!
So, I did a little bragging. Only sparkies would understand. I'd like to thank all my Pink Vikings for encouraging me and be totally supportive. You ladies, ROCK!
Have a great day, y'all!
