a work out journal {week 2}

January 21, 2013

It was a holiday today, but I had every intention of working out. I did learn one thing, if I don't work out in the morning...I always will find something else to do and never work out. Lesson learned. I was grumpy some of the day, mostly because I am so afraid of missing a day of working out. I don't want to fall out of this pattern, because I have already done that so many times.

I keep reminding myself that I am making small changes, because I don't want to overwhelm myself. I still eat pretty much exactly what I want, but instead of going days with no water...I added a few glasses a day. This may be small progress for some, but it is huge for me.

I was excited to get to work out this morning. {I know, where did that come from!?} Three days off was too much time, and my body was craving some butt kickin'.

Paul watched the kids {thank you!} so that I had a full hour of uninterrupted working out. It was hard, but I can already feel my body becoming stronger. This week is a lot less emotional.

I am strangely looking forward to Spring, because I know that I will be strong enough to start running again outside...

This week is feeling like a flop. The church was closed for cleaning, the Geek Squad didn't come on time, and now I have already showered for the day.

The kids didn't sleep a wink last night. I drank my weight in Coke. I am grumpy. I just want to sit on the couch, and veg...working out is definitely not in my cards today.

I woke up feeling emotional. Probably because I have only worked out once this entire week. I am discouraged, but am reminded that sometimes things aren't going to go exactly as planned.

I left for my workout late, and missed half of the instruction. Luckily this group of ladies I work out with is beyond supportive and awesome!! I found a girl to help me the entire time, and she pushed me to really get a good workout in. I am going to be sore, but she kept reminding me that I had the weekend to recover.

I came home happy, and loving that my body is telling me to exercise.

Two weeks down folks! I can do this.

But you ended it with a really good work out. That counts for a lot! That will leave you with a good feeling for week # 3 :)

Love you girl! You are doing awesome! These weekly updates of yours are motivating to me. I have slacked majorly the last couple months and finally got myself back to working out this week. I am starting with small goals too, and mine is working out 3 times a week.

You can SO do this. Baby steps, my friend. I still only drink about 2 glasses of water a day--and it should be like a gallon. We will do this together!

There will always be off weeks- you are doing great :). I am exactly the same when it comes to morning workouts. If I don't do them then, I won't do them at all. I am an expert at talking myself out of evening workouts.

Keep going, you can do it!! We all have our off weeks, but the trick is to just keep going, like everyone else said Baby Steps!!
