I have also had a couple of people who are not co-workers, but friends who read the blog, that have expressed interest in joining me, so that's pretty sweet too! I think once I get this whole thing started, I will reach out to more people via Facebook. But I need to take baby steps or else I'm going to get freaked out! The weather 'round these parts has been out of control lately so I'm hoping the atmospher gets it's shit together and shapes up so we aren't battling freezing temperatures and/or rain when we (hopefully) get started next week! I know you're going to be on pins and needles waiting to hear how it goes, so I will most definitely keep you posted.
We're teachers, we can't afford no dang surgery!
Moving along...as stated in my last post, I was getting kind of bored with the 30 Day Shred, and this week I cheated on Jillian. Not only was I getting bored, but that bitch fooled me and had me thinking I was all bad ass because I was making it through Workout 1 without problems, so I decided to try out Workout 2. Ughh-no-thank-you-very-much! Just watching it made me want to cry. I "attempted" some of the exercises, but pretty much gave up by Circuit 3. I felt pretty defeated after that day and decided it was time to stow JM away for a little while and do something else. So the past couple of days I have been doing the treadmill for 30 minutes, alternating between a fast walk at about Speed 3.5 and then running at 5.0 and occasionally cranking the incline up to 10 during my walking. After that I do some ab stuff and squats and other random things that make it hurt so good. Today I'm planning to either go on a bike ride or go to the gym (the real gym, not the gym at my house). I've been using the My Fitness Pal app all week and have managed to stay under my calorie goal of 1200 everyday so far. Hopefully when I weigh-in soon the scale will throw me a bone and show a loss. We shall see!
I've also been drinking a shit-ton of water and while my piss is now clear, I also have to pee every five minutes. That isn't very fun when you are teaching, or trying to sleep, or out running errands. Or grocery shopping with your 6 year old twins. I almost popped a squat in the parking lot of Walmart last night because I didn't think I would make it inside. I'm sure people have done way worse in Walmart parking lots so I really wouldn't have felt too bad. Don't worry, I didn't do it. I had kids with me remember! I definitely think the increase in water has helped me to feel more "full"
So now that I've rambled on for far too long about things you care nothing about...I will kindly end this post. Mostly becauseI have to pee.
Hope yall are all having a great week and making it HURT SO GOOD at home, at the gym, or wherever it is you get your sweat on! I have that song on my workout playlist and I LOVE IT!
Btw when I looked up "hurts so good" on google and pinterest to find some sort of picture, there were some very disturbing images that came up, so don't do it! Damn 50 Shades for corrupting America! I kid, I kid. And Kimmy if you're reading this, listen to me this time and DON'T GOOGLE IT! At least not while you're at work. You learned your lesson last time with the rusty trombone friend.
