You know those mornings where the last thing you want to do is get out of bed? Yeah… me neither. 🙂 No, but really. Today was one of those days for me. Despite feeling lazy, I had made a promise to myself last night that a workout was on my list of things to do today.
I’m part of a group on Facebook called “Hot For the Holidays!” (hold your giggles please) and someone posted this Fit Ass Exercise Challenge. I thought, how hard could it be? I’m doin’ it! Well, reality hit in me in the face at around Rep 30 on Leg 1. Ouch! I shoved through it and although it says not to rest, I did anyway. It ended up taking me 9:02 to get through both legs and I was hurtin’!
I wasn’t feeling very creative this morning so I opted to round out my session with an old pilates DVD.
I tend to get annoyed with all the yapping they do on workout DVDs, so I popped it into my laptop, turned the sound off and watched an episode of “The Big Bang Theory.” I need a distraction when I work out at home otherwise I tend to quit early. 30 minute show = 30 minute workout!
The DVD was significantly easier than I remember, but it has been a while since I’ve done it. The only really challenging part was the Thigh workout. I’m guessing that was thanks to all that stepping I’d done prior. Oh well, maybe some extra abs later today.
Breakfast was simple thanks to Tina over at Carrots ‘n’ Cake. Have you visited her blog yet? She is new to my Feed, but she has been blogging for years! Anyway, I knew I wanted to use the cranberries leftover from last night’s dinner and I was excited to see her Cranberry Oatmeal post this morning! I made a few alterations (added almonds and an extra splash of milk because the flax made the oats too thick), it was really yummy!
I’m off to get dinner started, a (hopefully) easy crock pot specialty! Oh… and to study for finals =/ Semester is almost over!
