No workout today, so you guys get another ramble tonight.
As I start this renewed committment to weight loss and fitness, I have to wonder, “how can I fit it all in?”
I mean, one of the biggest excuses out there is that there isn’t enough time to work out. But unlike other times I’ve used that excuse, it’s seemed very easy to dispel that myth. Is it because I truly have more time in the day or is it because it isn’t really a valid excuse?
I know for sure I don’t have more time in the day. I work full time. Have daily chores and stuff around the house that needs to get done. Pup can’t stay inside over 9 hours. I try to commit at least 1 hour a day to the blog. I bring work home a lot. I like to watch TV and read and relax.
At some point the past few days it clicked that there IS enough time, I just have to prioritize things. On that list, I can sacrifice TV and reading if need be. I can go to sleep early and wake up early to go to the gym. I have all weekend to do workouts, so that knocks out 2 of my days right there. There IS time. It IS manageable.
After realizing in my head “holy crap, I really am gonna do this,” I decided I needed workout clothes. Today, this beast of a thing arrived in the mail:
ROFL. Isn’t she a beaut’? Seriously. The thing has like 20 hook-and-eyes going up it. It’s gotten all kinds of buzz on Oprah and stuff, and who is Oprah to steer people wrong?
OMG, the thing is like, WOAH. My boobs haven’t been that high and secure EVER. If it didn’t go all the way to my freakin’ neck I’d consider wearing it all the time. If you ever have to do some sort of moderate to high intensity bouncing, let me recommend that you get one of these Enell Bras. (affiliate link). Just make sure you MEASURE yourself before ordering.
Yes, they are expensive. Yes, they are fugly. But damn, they hold you in like Flynn.
Anyway, I’m super sore from Zumba last night. I should have stretched better afterwards because my legs are all tight. As I said, no gym tonight, but am back on for a 1 hour Zumba class tomorrow night. This time, I won’t eat dinner beforehand. I don’t know if I’ll ever get rid of that feeling of shrimp bouncing in my stomach from last night. Blech. Also tomorrow, I hope to announce a new Get Emmie Skinny sponsor. Fingers crossed!
We’ve made it through hump day, let me know how you’re doing!
