So I skipped a day. It’s probably going to happen quite a bit. Last night I had to take all the kids with me to an appointment that ran late, and by the time they were all in bed it was 8:45 and I was exhausted. So no workout.
Today, though, I was looking forward to it…until I finished the warm up and was already sweating buckets. I think the thing that’s going to keep me from getting bored with this is the fact that I’m not doing the exact same thing every day. The last time I was doing a regular workout (seven years ago?) I was doing Tae Bo, and it was the same damn thing every morning. I got so sick of Billy Blank (is that his name? Ah, I don’t really care) and his minions that I just gave up. This switches it up every night, though, so that shouldn’t happen.
Now, I made it through the plyometric cardio circuit, but I won’t lie and say I didn’t take a LOT of extra rests. It was brutal. It was encouraging, though, to see the minions here taking breaks too. I didn’t feel as bad.
I’m hoping that I’ll be able to do Day 3 tomorrow, but I’ve got a bit of a busy night planned. Nothing fun, just grocery shopping since my Saturday is fully booked. But if I don’t get to it tomorrow night, it’ll be Monday before I get back into it. See? Lots of skipped days. But doing SOMETHING has got to be better than doing nothing, right?
Breakfast: Wasn’t hungry and couldn’t even force myself to eat something.
Morning Snack: Special K chocolate/peanut butter protein meal bar
Lunch: We had a lunch lecture at work, so food from Jason’s Deli was provided. I had half of a club sandwich, a tiny bag of plain Lays potato chips, half a brownie.
Afternoon Snack: None. Lunch was big enough.
Dinner: Leftover grilled chicken in a pita pocket with some shredded mozzarella sprinkled over it. A bit of cottage cheese after the workout.
Drinks: One cup of coffee in the morning, Coke at lunch, water the rest of the day.
