I keep trying to get in to the groove of working out again and it just never happens :( Last night I planned on it, but the kids didn't peel the potatoes until I got home - so dinner wasn't until after 7. I can't work out right after I eat either. I'm just so tired in the evenings. Since I can't get to work until 8:30 now with taking the kids to school - I shouldn't leave work until 4:30 at the earliest. Generally I leave at 4 and just do some work from home. It is very rare that I don't check email and reply to a few messages for work in the evenings. I've been so swamped at work though - and people just constantly asking if I've done this or that. I'm only one person...!!
I had good results from Body by Beast, but it is really hard to do that workout without Dave. We were doing it together. He even bought me a weight bar for Mother's Day...I have yet to use it...it makes me sad. I've been following Chalene Johnson (TurboFire, TurboJam, Chalene Extreme) and she has a new workout called PiYo. It looks like something I'd like. Chalene is a little more perky than I usually like, but I do like her videos. I loved TurboFire - only program I've ever completely finished as advertised. It was too much cardio though and I didn't see the results I like from weights added in. PiYo has some yoga and pilates along with Cardio. So - I ordered it. I also signed up to be a Beachbody Coach. I love Beachbody products so I figured why not. I'd doubt anyone will ever purchase anything through me - but for now I just signed up.
I'm just having a hard time with the eating right and working out. I could so give up pop right now - it is messing with my IBS and doesn't taste as good as it used to. I can always give it up (usually temporarily - but for at least a few months always) when I'm at this point. Sad thing is - I think I'm stopping myself. Dave was always cheering me on and always noticed when I did things like that. He knew how hard it was for me to lose weight, but would always see how much stamina I had in my workouts and how hard I truly was working. Nobody else has ever noticed though :( Why bother to improve if nobody notices? Sucks not having anyone that can be proud of you :( I'm going to still try....this is what always gets in the way though. I just need to think about vacations - I don't want to always be ashamed to go in the pool on vacations. I also still really want to do a mini triathlon one of these days.....I hoping to start training in the Spring.
I'm not sure when I'll bet getting my PiYo - I still have my Brazil Butt Lift to get through. I'm just not jazzed about always doing it in Spanish. I haven't tried my laptop though - maybe English will work on there. The kids have AWANA tonight and I used to work out while they were gone before. I just really need to clean though....I spend so much time cleaning - I certainly wish it would look that way!
