I am officially on week 3 of Jamie Eason‘s LiveFit Trainer. I really slacked off this weekend and completely beat myself up about it. I took Friday off (usually my day 1) to drink with a good friend (WTF, really?!), I was going to pull a 2-a-day on Saturday, but was too hung over and crampy to do it (when have cramps ever stopped me before…pussy), I took Sunday off because…I forgot to come up with an excuse. What would I normally do in this situation? Continue to beat myself up, call myself names, and “punish” myself with an extra hard trip at the gym.
NOT THIS TIME!
I mean, think about it: I enjoy working out. I absolutely KILLED my legs on Saturday, and am loving the soreness right now. I’ve been great with my diet. I know the benefits of working out. I know exactly what I have to lose (weight) and gain (muscle definition). Punishment is not an option. It is so negative, and I want my life to be centered around positive things from this point forward (kickass son, kickass fiance, kickass health, kickass guns).
Also, I’ve been looking at fitso things all morning, and it put me in a good/workouty mood.
The point to this is: I’m going to go to the gym and work extra hard today, but not to punish myself. To show myself that I CAN and I WILL do what it takes to be healthy and fit. And to look good in a bikini at our beach wedding. Which is in 6 weeks!
But 80% more important that all that jazz is: What’s for dinner tonight?! I’m surprising the future hubby with an attempt at Persian Kabobs, crunchy rice, and tzatziki. I hope it turns out well! It is my favorite dish at his parents house (duh), and I would love to recreate it! And besides, there is a crap ton of garlic in it. And….I’m not sure if you know this…but I fucking love garlic.
Until next time,
