I am so glad that today is Sunday, even though I did wake up at 6 am. I just can’t seem to sleep in on the weekends. This past week has been a really off week for me – diet and workout-wise.
There was no school one day, Jaden was sick a couple of days, my work hours changed slightly. I pretty much ate everything in sight all week and missed two workouts this week, and I never miss a workout!!
I was working until 2 pm on Wednesday and Fridays. Now, I’m working until 3 pm, which means I can’t workout after I get off work those two days because I have to be home to get the kids off the bus.
Danny usually goes to the gym at 5 am during the week, so I can’t wake up early and go. I suppose my other options are to wake up early and work out at home or workout in the evening. I planned on working out Friday night but I forgot it was bingo night at Jaden’s school.
This week, I plan on focusing more on what needs to be done – planning my meals better so I don’t eat a whole bag of jelly beans (yes, that happened this week) and figuring out when to fit my workouts in.
I completely realize that people work full time jobs and have things a lot harder, but no matter what your schedule is, if it’s something you’ve been used to for years then it’s going to mess you up if it suddenly changes.
Of course, my first priority yesterday morning was to get to the gym!
I started with the Bikini Body Mommy Fit Test because I am a little behind on that workout.
I was happy because I improved all my scores from the previous Fit Test. It’s about an 8 minute workout, but it’s killer. Danny did it too and we were dead at the end. Dead. You’re only resting 10 seconds in between each exercise so it really keeps your heart rate up!
Danny and I worked on back and biceps and honestly it was a so-so workout. I just wasn’t feeling it. I was tired from being up early, my eye hurt (turns out my contact was ripped in half in my eye), and my leg was really bothering me.
We got through all our back exercises and half of our bicep exercises until I threw in the towel. My eye was killing me and I had to go home to fix it. Plus, I was just plain crabby.
After the gym, we stopped at Target where I bought Boom Chicka Pop kettle corn in the frosted sugar sugar cookie flavor!
I haven’t tried it yet, but I’m going to try it today. I imagine it’s going to be delicious. They also had a lemon drop kettle corn flavor but I was a little unsure about that flavor.
On today’s agenda is the gym, grocery shopping, and working for a few hours later. I really need to get back on track with my eating and workouts this week!
Have a great Sunday!
- Do you ever have “off” weeks? I usually have off days, but rarely off weeks! Too much good food!
- Did you do anything fun this weekend?
- Favorite popcorn flavor?
