I got in a great swim yesterday after shopping even though I was SO tired and had ZERO desire to do anything. I told myself just to jump in the water and then choose whether I wanted to jump right back out or stay in. My reverse psychology on myself worked and as soon as I hit the water, it woke me up and I was ready to work for some endorphins. I will answer your questions now….. yes, I am completely and totally addicted.
We started the night off by going on a walk! How can you stay inside when the weather is this beautiful?!?!
Lets just say I hit the wall within a hundred meters into the walk. 1.3 mph was killing me off.
I hit it hard. Time for some gatorade, shot blocks and mantras and I was able to finish strong.
We had an awesome walk and the best part was analyzing each house we walked by…….what qualities we want to copycat. I LOVE looking at homes and thinking about the future of not living in a house with wood paneling, pet mice and built in 1908 (I am not exaggerating).
I finally made it to Costco yesterday to stock up on the goods (including a 405 pack of popcorn) and my sister almost passed out when she saw her favorite item at Costco. She stocked up on the Taboule nd shared one of the tubs with us for dinner.
Taboule main ingredients: Parsley, lemon, cracked wheat, tomatoes, onions and seasonings. I will be closet buying 20 of these babies at a time and eating it straight with a spoon while I finish Season 2 of ‘Make It or Break It.’ Billy still won’t stop making fun of me for crying twice during the season finale of a tv show about high school gymnasts.
We cut up high fiber/protein wraps and broiled them for a few minutes to make some homemade chips.
I think I might have gone back for 15ths…………..that is a new (non-ice cream) going back for more personal record.
I don’t even remember what happened after that. 5 episodes of Chopped, waking up to candy wrappers all around me and caramel stuck in my hair even after I washed it today. I will not cave and re-wash it. I am sticking to my ‘saving money on shampoo’ movement.
What is something you go back for seconds (or thirds) with?
-Lasagna, pizza obviously, pancakes, this Taboule crack and ice cream.
What was the last tv show that you watched?
-Chopped. I kind of want to compete on the show now.
What do you do to convince yourself to do your workout?
-I trick myself into starting and then once I do, I am SO happy I did.
