Rarely do I gush, but after the comments on yesterday’s post, I would like to humbly and sincerely say thank you. I blushed a little. You kids are all fabulous.
And I also loved the reasons why you guys started your blogs. Rock on!
To completely switch up the mood, wanna know one of my top google searches people used to get to my blog this week? The term “sweaty girl”.
It’s cool I guess. I work up a sweat often. In the gym. And sometimes in my apartment. Heads out of the gutter, please. I’m talking about my workout dvds. Let’s focus…
Yesterday morning was more of the regular. I woke up at 5:10. Because of the cooldown (I will discuss this more later in the post) it takes a little more than usual to talk myself into getting out from under my two comforters. Yes- two. There’s supposed to be one last warmup this week and I’m bound and determined to keep that heater off until we’re seen the last of the 70-degree weather. Being a recessionista isn’t always glamorous. So if you come visit me in the next couple of days, dress in layers.
And then I saw something shiny…
Where was I?
Oh yeah, back to the early workout… Jillian and I met on the battlefield and took down Level 2 of The Shred. I think it’s about time I upgrade on the weights. I’ve said it before, but I actually mean it this time (I think). 5-lb is still a challenge on some of the moves. But I like to think I’m ready to for some 7′s in my life. I never claimed to be the strongest chick ever, but I’m sure as hell trying! I also did the core circuit with my resistance bands. It’s not my favorite circuit that is offered, but because I’m also slacking on the yoga, my core has felt a little left out as of late. It seems the legs have gotten all the attention and the core is starting to develop the middle child syndrome. (I totally just made a funny there. Get it? Because it’s my middle? No? Shoot….)
After work, I hit the cardio with a little elliptical time. It was an all-around, well-balanced workout.
But I won’t lie. I was done-zo for the night. And had no issues curling up under my blanket and chillaxin’ here:I’m pretty sure I’m thankful everyday for this couch that replaced the crappiest fouton ever. Instead of hearing it creak every time I sit down, I just sink in and sigh a happy sigh. And yeah, even though I have a nice table, I still enjoy eating off of my coffee table in front of the tv. No one’s perfect…
The food can be, though.Hello broccoli. You needed special attention, too. And I was happy to oblige. Along with finishing off the rest of the baked BBQ chicken I made last Friday by throwing it into a sandwich- it seemed to last forever!
And so here we are this fine Wednesday morning… I slept well last night. How do I know? Because somehow I totally slept past my alarm. I was frustrated. I didn’t mind the sleep (who would?), but I’ve really started to enjoy getting in a good part of my workout in the morning. Apparently the two comforters convinced me to stay in bed this time around. It’s no biggie. I just don’t enjoy the “rushed” feeling I get when I get home late and still want to hit the gym before relaxing for the evening. Ick.
Thank goodness Modern Family doesn’t start until 8:00 around here. Clearly I have priorities.
Question of the day- Does the weather affect your workouts? Are you a hard ass that keeps running through the winter (I salute you)? Do you stop morning workouts because you don’t want to get out of bed? Do you do more/less in your workout? Are you going to just answer already so I can stop asking questions? Seriously… why can’t I stop?
