How did I survive a week with no blogging?

Thursday, May 31, 2012

I haven't blogged in about a week??? Why...this is unheard of. I always have something to say (I didn't say it was anything important, but I can always come up with something).
I have been so super busy at work. I have only been logged in so that I would still be sure to track my food and exercise. I have stayed on track so far this week, we won't even go into the holiday weekend. I think Sunday and Monday I was a little over, but not so much so that I was miserable or anything, they just were not the best choices. Although, we did go to the pool on Monday and I stocked up on berries, vegetables, and water. And then my sister showed up with chips and guacamole that was just so darn good and irresistible. So that wasn't that bad, but I could have done better because I did have a few of these little "two-bite" strawberry shortcakes. And they were just so good that I didn't feel bad about eating them because at least it was something that I enjoyed. And it was only 220 calories for 3 of them.
I have been doing Core Cardio & Balance all week and I am getting a little bored with it. We usually switch up the workouts, so doing the same one every day is a little monotonous. I decided though, that since this is my "recovery week" that I would really recover, and I have not gone to the gym for an additional workout. And I do not feel bad about it. Because I know that come Sunday, I am going to be working out like a crazy person again. And maybe this week of recovering will do me some good. Because my body was seriously starting to get worn down. And now it is actually feeling normal again instead of exhausted.
I had hoped that the scale would go down last week, but it stayed the same. I think now that I have somewhat conquered my scale obsession, I may just try to stay off of it until I am finished with the next phase of Insanity. I have got to quit letting that number determine my success. I am more than that number. Repeat to self.....
My kids had their last day of school today....they had awards ceremonies and I missed them due to work being so busy emoticon
I cannot believe the school year is over! I was excited at first because I (somewhat selfishly) thought that I was going to be able to sleep in now....however, I then remembered that my workouts are now going to be anywhere from an hour to an hour and a half long. So I will still be getting up at 4:30....yaaaaaawwwwwnnnnn. Good grief. I can do it now....but I really would love to sleep just until 6. And get a good 8 hours sleep instead of 6.
Well....that's all folks. Gonna get back to my "work" now.

    Busy, busy! Keep at it; you're doing great. Recovery is necessary. Can't get burnt out, then we never want to do anything again. I can't believe you get up at 4:30! Eesh! All for the greater good. Get it!
