Losers Make Excuses, Winners Make It HappenPosted: March 8, 2011
This is what I told myself this afternoon, but more on that in a minute 🙂
I got up bright and early this morning and worked out with Tony and the P90X gang for 40 minutes of Back & Biceps. It felt good, but it didn’t leave me with the feeling of “yeah – that totally counted as a workout.” Do you know that feeling? Either way, I celebrated with my over night oats. 😉
Work today was Lame City, and keeping with the theme I had a less-than-stellar lunch of a turkey sandwich, an apple and some Kashi crackers. I didn’t take a picture because I feel like I’ve posted 10 pictures of the same sandwich. It’s old news.
After work I headed to the grocery store! It wasn’t a huge shopping trip, as I’m going away for the weekend (!!!) I just needed enough food to get me through the week – and then a little extra. The last things I want to do when I come home from a weekend away is a) clean b) do laundry and c) need to go grocery shopping.
Here’s what I got!
On the drive home form work I toyed with the idea of an afternoon workout. (I think this trend is catching on!) But I don’t really have to – I thought – I mean, I did work out this morning. But why NOT go? I was just going to sit around if I didn’t. I stopped making excuses and just did it.
So I put my groceries away and jogged over to the gym for 30 minutes on the elliptical + 15 minutes on the stair master. I know the elliptical gets a bad rap for being a “cop out” to the treadmill, but I’m still trying to take it easy on the knees (my God, how old am I?!) I made sure to up the resistance and I ended up with yeah, this totally counted feeling 😉
I haven’t felt so hot after my workout, so dinner was 1 cup of butternut squash soup with a few pretzel nibblers on the side. Yes, I do like to keep it classy with paper towels as plates. No big.
I had never had butternut squash soup before, but it was really good!
Okay, bloggy friends – I’m off to get ready for some Glee 😀 I hope you have a fabulous night!
Let’s chat – What’s your favorite soup? Do you like the elliptical or avoid it at all costs? Do you ever catch yourself making excuses not to work out?
