Monday often seems to be the worst day of the week (obviously) but today has been proving to be a great day!
I woke up at 7 as usual, biked into work, and got down to business. Soon after arriving, I got the normal hunger pains and some yogurt was calling my name!
Usually, I hate fruity yogurt because I don’t like the chunks that are a part of it, but today I went out on a limb.
Blueberry Greek yogurt for the win! Despite the chunks, I loved it!
Go me for trying out new things!
I have a new motto as of today:
NO MORE EXCUSES.
Remember when my goal for October was to lose 5 pounds?
It’s not happening at all. In fact the opposite has been happening. I have gained three pounds instead.
“Oh, I have a baby shower this weekend…I can let it slide.”
“Oh man I am stressed out…I need this candy bar!”
“I’d rather watch a movie than work out today.”
No more excuses for me! In fact, I wrote out a calendar until December that covers my workouts for the days. I am running at 15k in December so this will be my training calendar until then!
And I am writing down my meals in the morning so I can’t stray from what I have planned. I really hope it all works out! I currently have the motivation to be successful. I just need to get my butt and gear and keep with it!
Also, anyone in the DC area? I really want to do this race but no one I know can do it with me!
How cool is that? It happens at 1:50 in the morning as the time changes for Daylight Savings…negative times anyone? Anything is possible…
Today, I ran for a half hour in the beautiful weather. I have no idea how far I ran, but I am okay with that!
I also did some lifting (3 x 12 reps for each exercise):
- Leg raises
- Dead lifts
- Bicep curls
- Tricep kickbacks
- Double squats with weights (squat to put weights down, squat to pick them up)
- Dumbbell bench press
- Calf raises
Plus, some abs and wall sits! Feel the burn! YAY!
Off to a meeting, pause for dinner, and then heading to class!
What gets you motivated?
Do you plan out your workouts ahead of time?
How’s your Monday?
