I've been lazy the last couple weeks. I've been slacking off logging my food. I've been getting workouts in but it's been a struggle, I've really had to drag myself to the gym or popping in a video. This is where I start to falter after I lose weight.
After an argument in my head, I started getting ready for the gym. I realized I hadn't done laundry in a few days.....no clean workout clothes. UGH! forget it, I thought, I'm too tired anyway. But I had just posted on SP that I was doing this so I had to figure it out.
I pulled on a pair of thin spandex/polyester pants I wear under my jeans when I ride my motorcycle in chili weather, an old ugly Tshirt and sorry to admit, a sports bra that was less than fresh. Seriously, I wasn't going to go there to hug anyone. I COULD NOT BELIEVE I was going out in public like this!
I got there later than I usually do and sure enough, all treadmills were full. AAACK! I almost went home. Instead I went into the weight machine room and killed time doing some upper body work. I tried some new machines I haven't used before which felt good.
Finally, a free treadmill! I caught a glimpse of myself in those pants I normally wouldn't be caught dead in and hey, not as bad as I thought. Not good mind you but not noticeably horrendous. Gave me a little more umph on the treadmill.
Today, I watched Safe House with my husband and felt a nap coming on. I pushed myself off the couch, bundled up and took the dog for a 15minute walk, then did the deck of cards workout I saw on Biggest Loser. You assign an exercise to each suit and then one by one, flip the cards over and perform that exercise however many times the number shows. It took me 15 sweaty minutes to get through the deck, then I jumped on my elliptical for 20 minutes.
I have to remember this post-workout feeling. This week will be TOM so I'm in for a challenging week.
I hope everyone had a positive day today!
