Workout results 8/13

Friday, August 14, 2009

Shame on me! I did not workout yesterday. I was too caught up in some stuff around the house and my back was bothering, so instead of cross training as planned - I did NOTHING.

I may switch my run for today to tomorrow to allow my back to get better. I think the other day when I was lifting or doing planks I hurt it, I know, I did not even lift heavy but something happened because ever since then it hurts to bend over and when I stand up.

It is always SO hard to report back on the days where I did not reach my goals, but it must be done! I friend of mine the other day wrote about the power of accountability and I too believe it is a key factor for success in reaching goals.

Goals achieved for the day -
1. Use my foam roller 3 times - Did not do
2. Ice 2 times a day - Did not do
3. Yoga for at least 30 mins - Did not do
4. Drink 1 gallon - DONE! YES! One goal I did reach! LOL
5. ST Upper body - Did not do
6. Complete scheduled run - Did not do
7. Log foods each day - DONE!! 1,726 calories consumed

    Jen,
    It is ok to rest -nothing wrong with that and in the overall scheme of the things will not effect our bodies. teh one thing its affects is our mental and look towards the positives. don't beat yourself up to bad! today is another go and do something good and you'll feel better. Have a wonderful weekend.

    I realize that the longer I exercise and continue on my fitness journey, the more flexibility I need to allow myself! Yes, being accountable is totally key in being successful and I also stay accountable by admitting how much I eat and putting on paper my choices- it sucks to look at it, but I realized that key is to accept the now, so I can move on-- you know, clean plate, clean slate, clean attitute!
    So, no "negative" talk- I think you should change your talk to something along the lines of: "I chose to use my precious time to take care of things around my house and am pleased now nice things are. I rested my aching back and hydrated my body with plenty of water. I allowed my tired muscles to recover and get them ready for a great workout today. The extra rest allowed me to be super excited about my wokrout today"--- call me nuts, but I'm giving this affirmation thing that Deb introduced to us and has been feeding, a shot! Heck, I've never gotten any productivity out of beating myself up-LOL.
    I hope I didn't annoy the cr4p out of you-

    Btw- keeping my fingers crossed for your back to feel better!
    Have a great Friday!!! It's almost the week-end girly!

    It's good to log when you don't reach your goals because sometimes you surprise yourself by seeing that at least you did SOMETHING! It takes away that feeling of, OMG, I DID NOTHING! Today will be a GREAT day! Sometimes we need a little rest to reinvigorate ourselves. Our bodies are smarter than we are... they know what we need!
