Monday Workout Blahs!!

Monday, January 04, 2010

Today was actually a really great day mood wise. But very...laggy in other parts...

Things that I did good today...
-I ate breakfast
-I woke up early
-I wore an actual coat
-I got ALMOST all my water. 7 glasses!!
-I drank a glass of water right when I woke up!
-I did lots of stairs at work today
-I did 18 minutes on the elliptical!
-I did 18 minutes on #2 resistance!

Things that need improvement...
-yea I did do 18 minutes on the elliptical, but I JUST finished and its 10:03....I need to get it done earlier but I just didn't. No excuses right? I just didn't.
-I need 8 glasses of water, not 7.
-I could wake up a little earlier
-that way I remember to pack snacks
-and a healthier lunch
-I could do 20 minutes on the elliptical
-I could do 20 minutes at a #2 resistance


Today I am grateful for my elliptical. It challenges me and its a fairly expensive one. I'm very lucky to have gotten it for free. I love it. I'm also grateful to have my wellness coordinator at work, Nicki. She's one of my biggest cheerleaders. And lastly, I'm grateful for the Biggest Losers new season tomorrow night!! Hooray!!


I really....reallly....reallllll
llly didn't want to work out today. I seriously contemplated skipping it and giving myself the day off. Day off from what? My week and a half vacation? I missed that darn elliptical, so I'm going to use it! That and I knew I would feel shameful if I didn't log any cardio minutes today. My butt got on there and did 18 minutes at level 2. That is new and challenging considering I've only been doing 15-20 on level 1 resistance. Woo!! That AND I HAVE been on vacay =] So I'm proud I could go that long! I also pushed myself to eat breakfast and drink water.

Oh and we had a tilapia fillet with a side of steamed garden veggies on brown rice. So freaking good. I took a picture. I'll post it tomorrow =]

May your Tuesday be inspired Sparkers =]

Stay Classy Sparkpeople =D

    Well, this post just brought a tear to Nicki's eye. ;)
    Great job lady! And everyone is right, you've come a long way and those little victories are adding up! Here's to a fabulous Tuesday full of Biggest Loser and an earlier sweat session (and maybe more tilapia, yum!) emoticon

    haha thank you for all the comments

    mudpuddle...I did focus on the good stuff, and I never said the improvement list was "bad", but I get what you are saying =]

    You are your own worse critic right? Because if I dont do it, no one will.

    and its motivating!

    besides, yesterday was a success compared to this morning =[

    Love your sign off. :D

    Also, don't focus on all the stuff you did 'wrong' or could have improved. YOU DID PRETTY FREAKIN' AWESOME, if you ask me! And hey, I'm the one writing here, so... YOU DID PRETTY FREAKIN' AWESOME!

    Meditate on the positive and just keep the things you can work toward in the back of your head.

    18 minutes on the elliptical is better than spending that 18 minutes on the couch! it's about small victories, darling...and you had a little triumph when you made the decision to get on that machine!

    You're doing great! Hey, if you can do 20 minutes on level 2, try longer on 1. I'll bet you can get your 20 in on one! Does yours have programs, or are you doing a manuel? Congrats on the water! Hey, have you thought about fixing your lunch at night, before you go to bed? When I have to get up earlier than usual, I fix my lunch and lay out my clothes, really saves time.

    Way to go! I started off doing like 5 minutes on the elliptical! I HATED it at first!! What I find it to do the programs, like intervals- it keeps it interesting!

    Slowly work your way up to the water- I used to drink literally NONE.. and now I'm up to like 20 glasses a day!

    Good luck girl :) You're doing awesome!
