Power Hungry - W8.D4

Wednesday, June 16, 2010

First of all, a thank you to everyone who snapped me out of my nonsense yesterday. By the end of the day you all had me feeling once more like the strong, powerful, and motivated woman I really am.
emoticon Lots of love to all of you!

I was going to write you a detailed account of last night, but it's really not necessary. I'm going to TRY to be brief.

* No AM workout. SUCK!
* No walk at lunch. SMART! 99 degrees and humidity out the you-know-what!
* Going to the mall instead. AWESOME!
* Buying a tank in size 22/24. MORE AWESOME!
* Realizing you could've gone smaller. AWESOMEST!
* Impromptu going away dinner for a friend. SAD.
* Actually liking something about the pics taken of me. COOL.
* Japanese Steakhouse. YIKES!
* Ordering veggies & tofu with my sushi and avoiding miso soup. AWESOME!
* Fried tofu. YUMMY! (BTW - it tasted like fair food! *lol*)
* Too much sodium (soy sauce). UGH! ...but could have been much worse!
* Rushing home (read: speeding) to get a walk before dark. HILARIOUS!
* Brisk 15 minute walk. DEATH!
* First minute out of air. UH-HUH! Have to quit smoking!
* Telling myself I could just make it 10 minutes. LOSER!
* Wanting to give up at 6 minutes. ACK!
* Pushing through all 15 minutes. SCORE!
* Realizing I did a 17 min/mile pace. OMG! YAY!!
* Doing another 45 minutes on my inStride watching Jillian. SCORE!
* Previewing 30-Day Shred. YIKES!
* Bed at 11:30pm. UH-OH!
* Doing last minute crunches before bed. SCORE!

I am a success! Excuses are for losers, and I am NOT a loser!

This morning I woke up again at 4:30 am and did a DVD of AM Yoga before work. Had plenty of time to relax and destress before work. Felt centered and powerful. And now I keep looking over at my resistance bands thinking maybe I should incorporate those into my ST today. No walk training scheduled for today, so any walking at lunch will just be for me and will include a leisurely stroll. I might *gulp* take the day off of walking entirely and just plan on pulling weeds tonight. *shrug* As far as the 30-Day Shred? I refuse to start it until after this weekend.

Speaking of...anyone got any tasty/healthy camping recipes? We're thinking of going to Hocking Hills this weekend to get some camping in. We bought a tent last year and haven't even opened it. (Long story!) Hoping to get some use out of it Friday and Saturday -- and do some hiking! WOOT!

Well...that's brief for me anyhow!
Don't forget to drink your water! (It's getting so hot out there!!)

    I can relate to the speeding home to walk at my snail's pace. ;) Oh, if only my outer athlete could keep up with my inner speed demon!

    Stoppin in to let you know I've tagged you as a friend. Beware!

    Just getting caught up on your blogs. Looks like you definitely made up for your lost time that evening. Remember all workouts should be at your pace, don't let Jillian intimidate you too much. You can always turn her instruction off and it's not so bad!

    In-Cred-Ible! You are ON FIRE!!!!! I like to take a bunch of fresh fruit and veggies when I go camping and then just throw chicken on the bbq. Easy peazy!

    Wow great job! It sounds like you could perhaps blame the 99 degrees with humidity (sounds like a nightmare to me) for some of the lack of ability to breathe. Definitely still a good idea to quit smoking though... it will only make things easier. You're amazing, such an inspiration. Keep working as hard as you do!!
