Question for you all:
What’s your rule for holidays?
Do you restrict the goodness or have controlled portions?
Do you not care on that one day and get back to work the next day?
Just interested in different perspectives!
The rest of my day/night is looking like something for dinner while while watching the AMA’s/red carpet, sweat&burn some cals, and do some homework. Very exciting times in the life of Shelby.
Besides the 20 degree feels like 10 out weather today, I did get my miles in outside. At times I was fine, and other times I couldn’t move my face it was so cold. But I did it! And I’m looking forward to another cold lake front run tomorrow! There’s something about running in either the cold or rain, or early mornings, that make you feel great. When you know people are looking at you like how is she out there doing that? Or they think you’re crazy, but some how, those are the best runs.
I know I’m getting sick because peanut butter does not taste good right now and peanut butter ALWAYS tastes good.
Worst sickness ever.
Just did an impromptu tabata session. I took sequences from class and I am really proud of myself because I didn’t half ass it, even without having a motivating teacher/class around me. I am a sweaty sweaty human right now.
what I did:
high knees/push ups
jump squats/pulsing squats
lateral jumps/star jumps
mountain climbers/(i called it up to toes, like a v-up but you legs are already in the air?)
plank walks/russian twists
each sequence 4 mins long, 20 seconds on, 10 off. killer
Will be beginning my work out soon, but I am currently looking up crossfit boxes that I could possibly be joining after the new year once I make my big move and I am beyond excited. It’s something I’ve wanted to get into for a while and I really think it’s the push my body need to start making big changes. I just wish I could start already! Giddy just thinking about it! :) :)
Today’s lesson: Chocolate whipped peanut butter is REALLY good, and I am no longer allowing myself to buy any because apparently I can’t control my portions.
This concluded today’s lesson.
Tabata yesterday was awesome as usual. My instructor is who fantastic is moving to Scottsdale to open her own badass gym which is super exciting. Makes me wish a lot of things, like be trainer, be as badass as she is…and ya know, succeed in my area of study.
After class I suffered from an all day migraine, like it lasted probably 12 hrs. That’s what being stressed and emotional will do. (i.e. almost putting my dog down, and then preparing myself for it, and then finding we could give him medicine where if it helps him, could allow him to live another 6 months to a year…he’s at least 16..my dad says 18 so somewhere in between.)
So. Many. Emotions. But happiness that my mom said she is seeing a new pep in his step already and i cannot wait to get home next week and hug him :) :) :)
Tonight’s work out is still TBA… running and zumba? running and weights? running? zumba? who knows. I wanted to get outside and get my miles in but I still had a nagging headache and stomach ache that it had to be postponed. So if it doesn’t happen tonight it will tomorrow. and someone please yell at me fiercely if it doesn’t…but it will, and all will be well.
Back to your regularly scheduled programming.
I’m in a really weird mood right now. I just found out that my best friend’s parents are getting divorced. She is the oldest, 21, and her youngest sister is 8 i believe. I just want to cry for her. I’ve never been through this, so I don’t know the right way to go about it, but my heart is just so heavy for her.
It’s about 5pm and I’m still deciding on whether or not to go out for a cold windy run. I wanted to, but now, this weird mood has set in and I don’t know if I can do it.
I did tabata and then zumba, so I definitely did sweat it out today already. I may just call it a day for work outs and postpone my run until tomorrow.
What a day.
