GUESS WHAT. Tomorrow, my two-week break from working out ends. Tomorrow I run.
I have felt like such a pile these past two weeks. Ugh! I feel like I've been sucking it up in a big way. My eating was terrible in Hayward (Pete's godmother owns her own candy shop in town and we stopped in there to see her at least once a day three days in a row). I'm so glad we're done traveling for a while. At least until November.
But even home I haven't been on my A-game. A better game, but not A. I think my lackluster performance has something to do with a sweat deficiency. I just feel so much more in control when I'm working out. So it's time to recommit! Tomorrow I run! And what's more, tomorrow I start a strength training routine with my (wait for it)...
NEW DUMBBELL SET!
Pete and I drove just past the MN-WI border last night to pick up this baby from a very nice man who was very motivated to get it off his hands. I love Craigslist. My plan is to lift weights three times a week and do some form of cardio six days a week. I'll do the cardio in the morning, and then Pete and I will lift weights together at night. I'm also going to try to work in some physical therapy each night. I need to sit down with the exercise write-ups and divvy them up so I'm only doing two or three a day. That way I'm (hopefully) spending 15-20 minutes on it rather than 1-1.5 hours.
And, to avoid having my enthusiasm sucked right out of me, I'm NOT going to my Wednesday meeting today. I'm trying a Saturday morning meeting and hoping that a new mix of members will give me the inspiration I need. Now I just need to come up with an alliterative name for my Saturday weigh-in...
ALSO, new goal: I've decided that I'm putting all of the points I leave on the table (both activity and weekly) toward a new pair of jeans. I need skinny jeans to wear with boots. Every point I don't consume each week will translate into dollars I can put toward my jeans. BAM. Motivation. :)
Anyone else doing anything to shake things up?
