I woke up at 4:00 a.m., forced myself out of bed and went to the gym. Getting out of bed is the hardest part so once I'm on my feet, I'm pretty excited to get out of the door and workout. This morning, I logged 30 minutes on the elliptical, 15 minutes of weights and 30 minutes on the treadmill which included 10 minutes of running, 5 minutes on 9% incline, 10 minutes of running and 5 minutes of cooling down. On Saturday I managed to run 20 minutes without stopping and then paid the consequences because I was EXHAUSTED the rest of the day.
I've added the Lose It! app back onto my phone because I MUST lose 15 pounds by the time we go back east for vacation. I have a closet full of summer vacation clothes that don't fit and if I wipe 15 pounds off of my body, I can happily wear cute-ish things on our trip. But of course, as soon as I decided to count calories and eat better, all I want is to pig out. I'm trying to fight those urges and behave myself. I lost 20 pounds last year and I know that I can lose 15 more.
In other news, we saw Bridesmaids Saturday night and holy hell. It is a hilarious movie! I was disturbed by the 9 year old girl who was sitting next to us but I don't have high expectations for people these days. In the opening scene (a sex scene), my husband heard the adult sitting next to this girl said "cover your eyes." Why bring your CHILD to this movie in the first place? So annoying and frustrating. People are puzzling.
Anyways, my goal for this week is to lose 2 pounds and not undo all the hard work I put in at the gym by eating crappy. I need to hold myself accountable and know that if I really want to reach my 15 pound goal, I need to concentrate on the goal ahead. It is as simple as just saying NO. NO. No.NO!
