I don’t WANNA!!!
I haven’t eaten hardly anything for the past couple of days…I think it’s just the heat. Working out is getting to me too with the heat…but I’m doing it.
Last night I came home from work, made dinner for Clint and the girls and I had some imitation lobster…got dishes done and sat in the chair. I was so freaking tired last night. I think it’s from the previous nights workout too. I have muscles in my back that I didn’t know existed. They are so sore all the way across my back.
So I sat down and fell asleep for about 1/2 hour. Clint had to go out to the shop for something and he asked me if I wanted him to leave it unlocked for when I go out…I was like ‘I don’t wanna…I’m gonna skip tonight’…I could tell he was kinda wanting me to make myself go out…he’s good about keeping me going…but at that point I was so tired I didn’t care. So I sat in the chair about 15 minutes more and the phone rang. I got up and answered and it was Uncle D. Is that a sign or what?!?! I don’t hear from him much and after seeing my progress when he was over the other night, he seems so pumped about sticking with me. So he called and said, ‘If you haven’t already done tonights’ workout, when you do, really focus on your jabs’ (my left punch I was telling you about in the previous post)…he goes ‘I want you to jab, jab, jab and do some double jabs’ (which don’t sound like they would be hard, as all you do is jab with your left two times pretty quick. They KILL my arm)…
So hearing the enthusiasm in his voice got me motivated to not skip last night’s workout. I went out and did it. I am so glad that he called. Today, however, my body isn’t so happy about it, as I really pushed myself and got a great workout in, and I’m a tad sore today It’s a good feeling though. And also today, my hunger is back. That is a bad thing. Although, it may be more from metabolism speeding up a bit and actually giving me back my appetite…or it could be just one of those hormonal days where the munchies kick my butt…who knows.
Anyway, I accomplished something huge last night by not wanting to work out and wanting to give in to my tired body, and didn’t…so I wanted to post Today I have no regrets about yesterday. You know how it is…you have one little thing that you shouldn’t be eating or you miss your workout and it just guilts the crap out of you that whole day and even the next day (if you’re anything like me)…so today feels positive
Boy, do I know what you mean! Good for you for pushing through the tiredness to work out. And if you’re hungry, eat. That’s some advice that a wise lady gave me. We just can’t eat everything we want, right? Make good choices. Eat your protein!
You’re doing a fantastic job, Lisa! I’m proud of you.
