Yesterday was a successful day. After the morning donut fiasco, I was able to proceed with pretty much a normal day. I did go to the gym although I didn't want to. I hate going to the gym in January. For one thing, it's crowded. I know, I know....all those people need to get healthy too but still it is annoying. PLUS as a chunky chick going in to the gym in January people look at you and think you are just one more person with a resolution. But, I'm not. I've been working out at this gym a long time. I guess I'll just have to take comfort in the fact that the trainers all know me and so do the other regular types.
Food was good yesterday I ate healthy food. I did have a momentary brain fart when I took a bite of my kid's cookie when she shoved it in my face. Other than that, the water was ingested and pee was flowing. I did 40 min on the elliptical and it felt good to be back at it. I'm reading The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo as my "gym book". I have one I only allow when working out. It's really good so far. I'm thinking of seeing the movie on my day off tomorrow.
Today was good. First day back at tae kwon do and it was difficult. I'll likely be sore from the 120 crunches and 15 push ups as well as all the kicking. It really is hard being away from it for 2 weeks. Getting back to it takes some time. You just use muscles doing those kicks you don't use doing anything else. But, it felt super good to work up a sweat and kick the crap outta something. Also, I now have a staff weapon. Oh yeah......it is so much fun and cool to learn the drills. I feel like such a bad ass.
I plan weigh in on Monday. The scale is going down so far this week. Feels really good to be back in the swing of what is now routine and my lifestyle.
Tomorrow is my birthday. I always take the day off and do something for me. I find myself reflecting back on the year and where I am now versus a year ago, two years. I'm overall happy with it. I'll post more on that later because I'm still mulling that deep thought business over. Plus I have to pick up the kids from TKD soon and I have a conference call in an hour. Ah.......the life of the working Mommy......
