Kicking My Own Butt
Thursday, January 27, 2011
Today I went a little crazy with the exercise.
Started out with some Turbo Jam Cardio Party 2. That's a nice 45 minute workout where I burned 450 calories per my bodybugg. I had an awesome sweat going on.
Took a break, had a snack and some water then...
8 miles. I'm signing up for a duathlon which is 2 miles running, 8 miles biking then another 2 miles running. Yikes! Better start practicing.
I started thinking while I was biking, "What if I come in last? I'd hate to fail." Then I realized that I'd only be failing if I quit. There is nothing wrong in coming in last. Heck, even if I can't finish the race I don't think I'd be a failure unless I never tried again. So I won't fail. I'll just keep trying and have fun while I'm doing it.
After lunch I did.....
Oxygen magazine's February issue's Part 2 of Your Best Body". I did quads, hammies, glutes and calves. Thought.I.was.going.to.die. Legs are my weak spot so I guess this is what I need to be doing.
For a recovery protein snack I had Greek yogurt, honey and walnuts mixed together.
Though the scale is stuck at 188, I'm definitely slimming down. Clothes are either fitting better or downright loose! Wearing size 14s like I own it. That darn scale can go to hell. I'm loving the way I'm looking.
