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....
