I was sabotaged by a friend this morning.
Some ladies in my Ward get together on Tuesdays and Thursdays for a little workout. I have mentioned in previous blogs that quite a few folks in my Ward are runners. And I have over heard many others talking about their workout routines.
So, there are few over-weight folks when I go to church.
Anyway, I have never attended these "church lady" workouts even thought I have been told they are quite physical. First off, I like to go to the gym. Second, I am socially awkward. And third, I do not have workout attire that fits our code of modesty.
However, a friend ask me to go with her. Well, first she texted me; then she left me a voice mail; and finally she ambushed me at church. I told her that I would give it a shot and even offered to meet her at her home and drive over. All day yesterday I meant to text her to see what I needed to bring. But, I never got around to it until this morning...two hours prior to when I was to pick her up.
After hanging around in my PJ's, dropping my kids off at school, coming home still in my PJ's and sipping my protein shake while parked in front of the TV; I got a text back. A matter of fact text stating that she had a conference call, and her back hurt so she wasn't going.
Bet you were the one that thought I was flaky for not responding to her text or voice message, huh.
Well, no! Because she is the queen of flaky!
I was not at all surprised that she backed out. So, I just responded to her text that I would check in with her Thursday and see if she wanted to go. But, my panties were definitely in a knot! I missed a 8:15am core class at the gym because of her. And worse I knew that when I finally did make it to the gym there would be no parking in the lot and I would have to park out in the street!
As I predicted, there was no parking and by the time I got inside the gym, I was late for the 9:15am Circuit Training class. I had to do one of the things I absolutely hate watching people do. Try to crowed in to an already in session class. Well, I made it through the class then I did an hour each on the treadmill and the stationary bike.
I decided on the way home to stop at the 99 cent store and buy all the needed foods to do the Kaiser Diet. I have heard it called the Military Diet lately. I use it when I need to give myself a little jump start because you can really lose the promised 10 pounds. However, if you are not actually working on changing habits and / or living a healthy lifestyle. Well, you will gain that 10 pounds back before you can blink.
Anyway, I decided after all the back sliding I had done that I would jump start again. Plus, I wanted to be lazy with my meal planning. The diet gives you a certain group of foods to eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner for three days. That's three days of not having to plan what NOT to stick in my face.
Well, the whole time I was shopping I was wondering what I was going to eat for lunch after I was done. When I walked out of the 99 cent store I caught myself glancing at all the fast food joints in the parking lot and running over a list of what each place had that I loved to eat. But, I was resultant... at least and till I was almost home.
I was almost home when my body talked my brain into stopping at this taco shop near my home for lengua tacos. They are small, protein packed, and yummy. Well, after getting out of the car and walking toward the taco shop I realized that the Chinese place did not look very full.
Yeah... I stopped at the Chinese food place and got a two combo meal. I did not even choose to have the veggies, I got Lo Mein, Jalapeno Chicken, and almond Chicken.
Well... I am the Kung Fu Panda after all.
