Gettin' it in...


Today, I have no regrets because I've already got my gym on! How, you ask?

I took the afternoon off work. Two students were absent, and I had SO MUCH to do this afternoon with not enough time to do it. So I asked for a 1/2 day. After I left, I looked at the clock and decided that I was going to the gym. I had about 45 minutes before I needed to pick up my high-schoolers for their appt, and since I had my gym back packed and ready to go just in case, I GOT IT IN. Thank goodness for being prepared!

I did 30 minutes on the stationary bike because the ellipticals that I like (the ones without the moving handles) were all taken. I decided that the bike was a good choice because it got my heart rate up without making me sweat a lot. I mean, I still had my kids' high school, eye doctor and dentist to go to, and also church tonight. Having my hair a frizzy mess is a no-no unless I'm going straight home.

See, this makes me feel good. Initiative. I know that I am going to have to get my fitness in where I can. I just don't see a lot of EXTRA TIME in my future.

I have also tracked my food today and have done well. Church is tonight, so I have made sure I've saved enough calories for dinner. I had a spinach/strawberry/blueberry/protein smoothie two mornings in a row and it feels good to be starting my day off with nutrition. Yesterday I fell off the wagon thanks to a Tastefully Simple sample party in my lounge, but I got it back together. I will keep trying to keep it together.

I am making that choice. I won't give up. This is my year.

Good for you! Gym time is very important because it rejuvinates you and brings you great satisfaction and pride just knowing you did something worthwhile with your time. I wish i could get those heart-rate monitors where i live, can't seem to find them anywhere.
