I went to the gym on Monday and got in a really good workout, Tuesday I didn't get home until late, Wednesday we had an evening at my parents and went out on the lake, and today I was able to leave the high school around 2:45 and head home about 30 min early and I chose to skip the gym. Instead I came home and did yard work, which definitely got me really sweaty and still burned calories, but three straight days of no real working out made me feel really fat.
It was definitely the perfect time to get my new gym gear in the mail!
My three new motivational shirts and snazzy purple pants have arrived.
I was feeling rather bad about Easter Sunday lunch and eating a lot of strawberry shortcake with extra homemade whipped cream, then having Mexican food on Tuesday and combined with the lack of gym time my self image was this
A few weeks ago when we went to the Opera there was a couple that was overweight and sweating and breathing hard just walking to their seats. When they got to their seats they didn't look like the fit very comfortably in them. It made me realize that I really need to change my habits so that I don't end up feeling like I don't even fit in a seat. I already felt that way on our Choir trip when I had to forfeit doing the race cars because my butt didn't fit in the seats. I want to be healthy and never fear that I can't do something because of my body! What if one day Emma begs me to take her on some ride and I have to say "I can't mommy is too big?" It is a truly devastating thought to think that my bad habits could one day hurt my child.
I hadn't weighed in since Monday so I decided to check out the damage of this week and it turns out I have lost weight.
So it turns out I haven't had a set back at all.
Tomorrow I am going to the gym after work, Saturday I have the 5K if it doesn't rain, and Sunday I plan to hit up the gym too.
