Goin' Crazy. In a good way. I think.

Sunday, January 13, 2013

I woke up this morning and took my thyroid pill and went to watch tv for a while since the rest of the family was still in bed. I watched about half an episode of The Biggest Loser and decided I simply could NOT sit around like that anymore and ended up popping the SparkPeople Bootcamp DVD in the player. I don't want to "get off schedule" for The Firm since I'm using it to lead to a reward at the end and want to do it "right." Thus, I chose the Bootcamp DVD as a lower impact alternative, and I think it was a good choice.

I took a nice long shower and then went and sat down for a while and just basked in the warmth of my recovering muscles. I ended up making breakfast and the rest of the family got out of bed. I learned today that none of them are even aware I've been exercising because I do it so early. So, I extolled the virtues of a morning workout to my husband like some crazy person who just found their new religion. But seriously, I cannot recommend it enough. I never knew.

I'll be getting up tomorrow to do the next workout in The Firm. Hopefully I'll be a little less reluctant to get out of bed tomorrow than I have been on the other two days I've done it.

For lunch we went to Panda Express and I got the mixed veggies and broccoli beef. I've been trying to eat a lot less meat, but can't always turn away. I'm not very proud of eating the meat, but I don't feel overly guilty. Just a little. I ate the entire container of the food and was feeling a little terrible about my excess until I realized it was all under 400 calories. Suddenly it seems a lot more reasonable that I ate all of it.

So I still have about another 1000 calories to eat today. I think I need to figure out a way to spread the calories out more through the beginning of the day....

    Nikki, I know you're only basing your comment on the one post, but my reluctance to eat meat has to do with issues of the treatment of our food animals and nothing to do with veganism. While I have no intention of completely giving up meat or animal products, I do want to minimize my payment toward the factory raising and killing of those food animals. I prefer the meat I eat be from animals treated more humanely than most of those available in the average supermarket. Thus, my reluctance to eat "mystery meat" or that which is so cheap and readily available.

    Morning exercise is the only way for me to get in my fitness time, before the concerns of the day get started! My problem is getting out of bed when it's cold out!

    Unless you are trying to go vegan, eating meat is a great thing. I just think we have to watch for how we prepare it and try to reduce red meat as much as possible. Good job on getting up in the morning to get in the workouts.
