Today I went beserk. Yesterday was not only an "off" day, it was also FAMILY DAY. This involves my uncle and cousins coming over and us all:
Playing Magic the Gathering (the card game) while eating Pizza Hut for a nutritional breakfast
Playing more butt compacting activities (to clarify: sitting on your ass)
And more still....
Then filling our exhausted bodies with hot dogs and smores. (I had three...the blasphemy!)
If that sounds like a delightful day, you are absolutely correct. If it sounds like I ended the day with a stomach ache and marshmallows cob webbing between my fingers and chocolate smeared on my lips, you are also correct.
So today I decided to be good and exercise. This started with putting in my almost half hour of time into the 30 day Shred by the lovely Ms. Micheals (aka Satan) I blogged about level 2 of the shred in my first blog post, so there's no getting around admitting that i pansied out and rehashed Level One. This is my 12th day of the shred, but my 11th day on Level One. To break it down there's 3 levels, and you do each for 10 days. BUT...this morning I considered level 2 to be technically impossible, so I opted out and completed the tried and true level one.
But by the end i was feeling so confident I did an additional 8 minutes into level 2! Then I almost died, so I traded the masochism for a nice shower.
So that should be the end right? To me clean smelling hair means no more sweating for the rest of the day. Or it usually does, but as previously mentioned, my smore-shamed self lost it today. Fueled by cereal for breakfast, a grilled chicken salad with a crazy salad "spritzer" that contains 1 calorie because it's essentially scented water for lunch, and oatmeal with blueberries for a snack, I pressed on. I walked/jogged a solid 30 minutes up and down my very long and slanted driveway while blasting my ears with Modest Mouse's depressing and thoughtful lyrics.
After the walk my little brother and I jumped on the trampoline for another half hour. Ka-pow!!
In conclusion, my shower was a waste. But I feel amazing, and rather proud of my comeback .
If the above doesn't sound like very much exercise to you, well...
You can go to hell. You dirty athlete, you!! /waves fist
