Back home and back on the grind. I am REALLY run down right now between the travel and work and our move and everything else – but I’m desperately trying to keep myself on the straight and narrow. I was struggling when I first got back because I didn’t have time to cook on Sunday so that lead to ordering dinner a few more days then I should. And I had a lot of fried chicken at home. Probably not as much as I think I did – but considering I can’t even remember the last time I had fried chicken before Saturday, it just feels like a LOT. I also had a lot of dessert. See this is the thing right – I should have made a plate, sat down, and eaten. Instead I nibbled while I was helping my mom host – putting food out, taking coats, ect. There was a lot going on and I fell into my usual “take care of everything but me” personality. Which is ok. Seriously. It is. Because I’m out of it now. I didn’t let it turn into a 2 week thing like I usually do where I eat everything under the sun and cry about how fat I’m getting. I had a few off days and just like that I’m back. I got back on exercise immediately and I got back on eating hardcore today.
In general though, I just really needed the last few nights to myself, and I took them. I read and slept early and fought off this stupid sinus infection to the best of my ability. I didn’t blog, although I did do some videos for Femistry – which I should do a whole post about soon actually, but I did catch up on sleep and do some serious thinking about life. Trying to figure out can I quit my job and just workout for 4-6 months, then come back to the real world…but I think that isn’t going to happen. Not unless someone orders about 1000 copies of INSANITY from me right quick, lol. But seriously – after having to deal with the memorial and the family (Seriously if ONE more person asks me when I’m having a kid again I’m going to start swinging. What exactly is the answer to that question? tomorrow? On November 18th 2014? What is it?) and the travel and the go-go schedule once I got home with helping my mom cook and clean and then cooking breakfast and all that….I just was totally wiped out. I still wish I could have taken some time off this week, but I had work things that I had to be here for. I make no promises for Friday though…I’m really considering taking a day off to woosah a little bit.
I also should say – I started trying the Les Mills Combat workouts. Oh my freaking god. Okay so remember how I was desperate to do this program in January? Well my order got completely screwed up so I didn’t get it until last week. Anyway, I wasn’t going to even try it until I finished my hybrid…but um I totally gave in and tried it yesterday because of my total lack of motivation and I get giddy with new stuff. And I did it again today. It’s soooo good. Like I’m already a super fan and now wanting to jump into 2 months of it. I love this stuff…new workouts just make me excited. Some of them end up a bust and some of them are awesome. I need to make a page with my reviews of all the DVD programs I have tried and rate them somehow. I’ve tried about all of them. Some girls collect purses – I collect workouts.
Anyway, just wanted to touch base and share what’s going on with me. I am still feeling under the weather a bit, but I’m hoping my Shakeology + exercise + gallons of water + sleep will all fix me soon.
