Ok, friends. This blog is a way for me to not only share the good….but to share the bad and the ugly, too.
This week I did a horrible job with my routine. When Donovan goes out of town for work, I get all thrown off and just want to come home and be lazy after work. I don’t know why that is. I didn’t go to the gym except for Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. That is lousy.
I did make it to spin class on Wednesday night. It was my first time ever going by myself – without a friend. It was weird. Greta also visited that day, so I wasn’t feeling incredibly awesome, but I pushed through anyway. I really didn’t think I was pushing myself too hard, but after the class, my HRM told me I had burned over 700 calories. I’ll take that as a win.
On Tuesday (I’m all backwards) I found a new song on my iPod and busted out a back/bicep workout.
Am I the only one who likes to work out to the most inappropriate music ever? I don’t know what it is, but the dirtier the song, the harder/faster I workout. Is that weird? I’m totally in love with this song and was jamming with the windows down. If you google the song to listen to — trust me — it’s not safe for work. There are bad words. But it’s awesome.
I also did not eat very well this week. I get lazy when I’m by myself because I don’t have anyone to cook for. I did pretty decently until Wednesday night when I bought ice cream…and cherries…and lite cool whip. it was lite!!! Ha. Like that makes a difference. I had a moment of weakness and really WANTED ice cream. Ugh. I didn’t eat very much of it, but what I did eat made me sick. Guess my body is starting to regulate what it wants to eat and what it doesn’t.
I had another moment of weakness when I went out to dinner with my friend Katie last night. She just moved back to town, and we hit up Taco Diner — only the best place in the entire world. I had promised myself I was only going to have 1 or 2 Mambo Taxi’s ….but we were having so much fun and so deep in conversation, that I kept ordering. When I got my bill, I had drank 5 drinks!!!!! OMG! I haven’t drank that much since the night I got wasted on our honeymoon.
All to say, I feel gross today. I feel bloated and fat and yucky. I’m looking forward to getting back to spin class tomorrow morning and getting on my schedule. I need it. Hopefully my measurements didn’t suffer TOO badly this week!
