As you may be able to tell by the title of this blog post, I was a bad girl yesterday. I did NOT feel like working out at all. So instead I curled up with my comfy socks and watched a movie marathon (The Devil Wears Prada, Living Proof, and Julie & Julia). Side note: Watching Julie & Julia while attempting to watch what you eat...BAD idea. I wanted to dive through the screen and devour almost everything seeing it was all made with butter, wine, and cream. Mmmm. However, I ate my low fat quesedilla (recipe here) and behaved. But I digress. It was almost 11:30 by the time all the movies finished and I had yet to work out.
Now...I must admit this week I've been having a hard time with being motivated and have been having huge body image issues (hmmm could this be related to retaining a crap ton of fluid?). I've been completely uninterested in doing anything but curling up and being warm and snoozing. On Thursday when I got home from Zumba, I was so energized and even did the 30DS after Zumba...but since then I've just been BLAAAAAAH. But...Chris made me promise that I would do my workout yesterday. God I love him, he's so wonderfully supportive and just an amazing man to have in my life...and I'm not just saying that because he reads my blog.
Because I can't lie to Chris and I did promise I would work out. There I was at 11:30pm firing up the 30DS. I could have thought of about a billion excuses at that time of why I shouldn't work out. I mean who wants to be all sweaty when they get into bed (unless you've gotten sweaty IN bed...sorry mom). But I still did my workout, modifying slightly as, because I live in a duplex, I did not want my neighbors to think there was an earthquake! Now, here's the surprising part...the 30DS is getting EASIER!!!! I mean, I still hate doing the push ups..I just don't think that it's natural to use your arms to push your entire body weight up...even more unnatural when you're a heavy person!...but everything else was easier and I'm hardly sore at all this morning. YAY. That made me feel great. I work this evening and I will probably go for a little walk on my supper break. Gotta get this fluid off of me before weigh in day. Oi vey...
Have a great day everybody! And don't forget to enter my giveaway!!!
PS - Just watched Amanda Knox's murder conviction be overturned...What's everybody's reaction to this? Personally I do think she was innocent and am glad to see that she's finally able to go home.
