I have totally screwed my commitment (sigh)
Friday, July 16, 2010
So I'm only a week into this whole commitment thing and I've already totally screwed it up. I was doing relatively well in the beginning of the week and then POW. What the heck is going on here? I know that I am commited to doing this whole getting healthy, weight loss, feeling better about myself thing so why am I having such difficulty. I know, I know, life happens but why did it have to happen in the middle of my freaking first week. It would have been nice to at least get through 7 days, is that too much to ask.
So day 7 was my rest day which is good, right? My trainer stongly encouraged me to have one day of rest, intially when I made this commitment I was going to do 30 days of working out. I can't even imagine how I would have felt about myself if I stayed with that amount of days. Anyway, so day 7 was wonderful. It felt sooooo good to give my sore and tired muscles a rest and I made a delicious dinner, Tilapia, fresh homegrown zuchhini, applesauce, and soy milk...... YUMMY!!!!! This is huge for me since I HATE cooking and would always eat prepared meals, like those horrible lean cusines. Yea, since I've started cooking I don't know how I EVER found them tasty.
Day 8 I didn't do cardio or strength training although I did play softball. However, this league is slow pitch so it's not like when I was in highschool and was getting a REAL workout.
Today I am meeting with my trainer and will hopefully get some cardio in but I have to be at my sis's wedding rehearsal at 7pm so I have to watch my time.
This weekend is going to be crazy with my sis's wedding on Sat. then a bridal shower on Sun. I do have my workouts planned but who knows if I will have the time to stick to them. The thing is I know I will have time if I make it but sometimes I start falling off if I start getting overwhelmed or stressed. And being around my family (im sure like most) can be VERY stressful.
Ok so I'm done venting now. Wish me luck.. I'm afraid that I'm really gonna need it to get through this weekend and DO the healthy things for me.
Thanks for being awesome sparkling, sparky, spark friends!!!!!!!
