In All Honesty

I went a little crazy yesterday and did 30DS Level 1 along with a 25 minute walk/run. Then because I didn’t feel anything, I did some planks. For some weird reason, I love planks. I’ve always told y’all how I dislike Jillian Michaels because she’s just SO annoying. And watching her on screen just makes me want to drop kick her. But her methods work. I’ve seen people’s results so I stopped complaining about having to see and listen to her and started doing.

Yeah, thankfully she didn’t look anything like that in the video.

Today I was hoping to feel a little burn and soreness but nope. Felt nothing still so I went and did the 30DS Level 1 and some planks. I feel the soreness a little but it’s so miniscule it’s pretty much nothing. Ask me again tomorrow. But seriously, what is going on? Who am I? I love it and hope it’s here to stay.

Maybe it’s because my body knows I’m going to San Antonio this weekend and I more then likely will skimp out on my workouts. I’m not being negative. I’m just being honest with myself … and to my readers. I know how I am when I’m not in the comfort of my own home – where I don’t know the paths for runs. So why play it up. Why lie? I more than likely won’t work out Thursday – Sunday. There I said. it.

Will I regret it? Yeah, I probably should because I’ll be eating out a whole lot and drinking here and there – alcohol or not. But in all honesty, no. Because I haven’t seen these people who I call my friends for a long while. Because I rarely go out anymore now that all I do is work and save up money. Because I need to have fun once in a while.

Happy Tuesday!

Why do I look like this, you ask?

Well, let me tell you.

I went out and RAN!

Okay I lied. More like got off my butt, ran and walked.

Better than nothing right?

I did 1.15 mi. with a super horrible time.

Things I learned/realized while running:

  • Never throw away everything you did in the summer training to run a 5k; it is always harder to get back on track.
  • My fracture is still there … whoops. Oh well.
  • If I motivate myself with some things (that I will not share), I can make it through.
  • I have less than 5 months to whip myself into shape.
  • Over all, I’m doing this for myself, but if it wasn’t for the promise I made on my blog that I will strap on my running shoes today, I never would have done so.
  • Also, I was thinking of Rachael all this time and didn’t want to disappoint her. Ever since college started again, I blogged way less than I use to but I know she’s always there reading (hopefully) and encouraging me. Thanks chica!

I did a lot of Christmas shopping and helped my mum find presents for people as well.

I stumbled on this baby at TJ Maxx for $9.99. Yes it’s Jillian Michaels and I loathe her but there are exercise cards, circuit training cards and training technique cards inside.

I realized these makes me workout more than videos do. I am not sure why.

Maybe because I don’t have to listen to her voice …

Anyway, I am thinking of doing them on my off days from running.

Let’s see how that goes.

Let’s see how long it’ll take till I fall of the bandwagon again.

Hopefully, never.

Did I lose 5lbs?

Why am I asking? Well …

I did the second day of 30 Day Shred. Level 1, of course, this morning. TIRING.

Then in the afternoon I had a 2 hour football practice with FSA in the blazing sun. One of the girls accidentally hit me in the head with the football. Then I jammed my knuckle area on my pinky while catching a football.

And I just got done playing a in-door soccer game with FTK tonight. I accidentally knocked down a girl. Whoops.

So you see … I just had to have lost some weight.

But I highly doubt it. Life doesn’t work that way.

*********************************

Last night I got to finally use my popcorn maker with Jenny and Tammy!

We used olive oil because we didn’t have any other oil. Luckily, I bought spices so we used those. Now we’re thinking of getting butter oil. Then it would REALLY taste like the theater. We figure we would buy that when we are pros at this.

So for the time being, it’s very healthy!

I hope your weekend was eventful. And that your upcoming week goes well!

Lots of meetings and a test and a game this week for me. Eeep!

It’s Been A Productive Day

First things first!

The flyer I made is up around school. They made poster sized too but I’m not sure where my FTK people put them.

Isn’t it sweet?! I got all excited.

Okay, back to business. I woke up and did 30 Day Shred!

If you don’t already know, I’m not a big fan of Jillian Michaels. She just annoys me. But I thought to give this a try because it is known to work.

My goal is to do it ever day for the next 30 days. If I ever have to skip a workout, I’ll have to make it up.

I did Level 1 today and it wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be. Though I had to take a few seconds of breathers at the end of some exercises.

Hoping by the time I get to day 10, Level 1 would be easy peasy and I won’t have to stop at all.

I showered then went grocery shopping.

I got almost everything on there.

Most of the stuff on the list was to make Corn Casserole. Yum! Which I made after I got home.

It’s been a good day. And it’s not over yet!
