So yesterday, I didn't work out...at all, but I had valid reasons. I went to bed Monday night utterly exhausted, so besides being ridiculously freezing on Tuesday morning, I desperately needed that extra hour/hour-&-a-half of sleep that I would have *not* gotten had I pried myself out of bed to walk 2.5 miles that morning *and* in the afternoon, I had secured a ever-so-needed ride to the east side of town to the Sprint store so that I could pick up my replacement phone. (Of course, as my luck would have it, I found out that as of that day-March 1st-I was actually eligible for an upgraded phone! *GO FIGURE!*) So instead of going and working out for several hours, I spent an hour's worth of riding in the car with my friend Linda (to & fro) in addition to about an hour actually *in* the store talking with the rep who assisted us with getting my phone all set up *and* him giving Linda lots of information regarding a family plan for her, as she's looking to switch providers.
So afterward...and after a long.........long day at work, Linda invited me to go to a local church where every Tuesday, they have *free* healthy meals for the community to partake in. So we met her husband, his father and her mom at the church and had a nice meal. I even got to pick up a free loaf of bread and some bagels--all for *free*.
All that being said, I *did* work out on Monday...a short work out, but still something...in addition to the 2.5 miles I walked in the rain earlier that day (see my post from Monday!) so I got a decent amount in. Today, once again, I managed to arise early and walk 2.5miles in the cold. Then today, after work, I took a few extra minutes to "wusaaaaa"-out after another hectic day before I changed my clothes and headed downstairs to the Fitness Center...and *BLISS* I was the only one working out at that time! I put my headphones on and zoned out to the tune of 10 miles on the recumbent bike while changing the resistance between 1 and 3 at mile intervals, 3reps of 10 (at varying weights) on the weight machines that didn't have padded parts falling off (Tino, get on your job and fix it, right?!?!) and followed up with 1 mile on the elliptical machine on the "weight reduction" program. I was still feeling Monday's workout, so I know I'm going to be feeling this one too...but as long as it's not sheer-pain-shooting-through-my-body-and-up-my-spine-pain, I can deal with it!
My clothes are fitting differently, I'm drinking a lot more water...plus all the packing I've been doing in preparation for the big move...I've been busting my tail. I've worked out almost every day that I've gone to work since January 4th and despite missing some days here and there, I must admit that I am on a roll and I most definitely acknowledge myself for that! It's a good feeling...it will be even better when the pounds start falling according to the scale in addition to the difference in how my clothes fit! ;)
Off to catch the bus home. Happy Wednesday everyone...weekend's only 2 days away! How will you make the most of it?
