3 days have gone by since I've posted a blog...
Life has been hectic.
The day before yesterday I went off the charts in calories! My sister in law had surgery, things at my husband's work have been a little crazy, and life caught up to me. My stress had been growing for about a week when I caved. I told myself that I wouldn't eat because of my emotions or that if I splurged, it would only be for one meal. I was wrong. I fell and I fell hard. I ate pizza, ate Chili's, ate a couple of s'mores, ate hot tamales, and had 2 daiquiris and two more shots after those...
Sighs... hangs head...
So. Yesterday I picked up my weary head and MADE myself workout. It was seriously a battle of my mind and body. My mind was screaming and my body was tired. I felt horrible. During my crash, it was great! I can't lie! I had a great time and my body just fell right into it. It was like reuniting with an old friend because that's how I use to live my life. Stress would catch me, I would fall, and slowly but surely I would put on weight. The difference is, I realized yesterday just how bad that "old friend" is to me. I was mad when working out. I didn't want to! I was achy and yucky feeling... but I did it. I didn't beat my time by much .. only by a few seconds.. but it taught me something. I felt alive, again, after my workout. I felt better. Tired but better. I realized how much bad decisions can affect you the next day. I cleaned myself up and cleansed my body the best I could... then I went on a bike ride. Yup, I decided that just because I slacked off on my rest day and ate the whole house.. didn't mean that I wouldn't push myself to the brink, yesterday. 18 minutes later and my bike ride was done. It wasn't much but it was something.
Que today. Today is my first of four, 2 workout days. I went to bed early last night and made myself get up at 0630 this morning. I don't want to say it was hard, because I had all the sleep I needed, but it was unusual feeling. I'm not used to getting up that early, but I did. I knocked out my first of two workouts today AND I beat my ZCUT #12 time by 3 minutes! Oh the joy of getting enough sleep, eating within my calories, and eating well. I feel 100% better. I also realized that taking my stresses out in a workout is SO MUCH MORE PRODUCTIVE than eating them away. I don't FEEL LIKE CRAP after working out. I feel SO MUCH BETTER.
So, I have an interview that I'm heading off to in 45 minutes.. wish me luck! I decided that I wanted a parttime-ish job to help out my family before heading off to Nursing School in the Fall. When I come back, it is lunch time, digest time, and then workout #2 on baby naptime.
Hope you all have a great day, I'll see you later on!
