I'll admit I skipped out on my work out today, but fear not, I will make it up tomorrow instead. Sunday is usually my rest day but occasionally, depending on what's going on, I'll switch up and take off Sat. and do my work out Sunday morning instead. I started to work out this morning but I was too stressed to even put half my heart into it. And I've found that if I do it half heartedly I might as well not even do it. It's better if I just make it up another day.
So far though I'm still stuck at a 3.5lb weight loss since I started really watching what I'm eating and doing Insanity but I know I've lost inches. I'm not sure how many because I can't find my measuring tape! Lol! It's helped I think that I've been doubling up three days a week by adding in 30-45 minutes workouts from my Nike Training App. I love that thing! And then I add an additional 20 minute ab workout the other three days a week so I've really been pushing hard!
It kinda floors me seeing people who have made an effort to workout and lose weight before just stop. I don't know how you do it. I don't know how you put all that time and effort into something like getting healthy and watching your body change for the better and then let it go and go right back to where you were before or even worse! I know that when I kinda let my eating habits slip over the holidays I was still faithful to work out 5-6 times a week and seeing that 4lb. gain over the holidays totally freaked me out! I couldn't believe I was letting myself slip back again - I hated being frumpy and "plump"! Lol! And I can't imagine working hard to leave that behind and then go right back to it. At the same time letting yourself slip some is no reason to quit completely - jump back into it, get back into the swing of things! What it boils down to is people are just too lazy (I know that sounds harsh, but I've applied it to myself before!) - they make up all sorts of excuses. And if you are truly happy that way then I say good for you but the reality of it is most people aren't. They hate others for their motivation and will power. I crack up every time someone makes an excuse for themselves to me - even when I don't ask for it. "I just don't have the time.", "I just can't eat that much or that often....", "I just like my sweets!" Yeah, yeah, yeah - I feel the same way some days but you know what, I still keep doing what's right because I want to feel good about myself! People who don't eat all day and then eat a huge, nasty dinner think they are doing themselves a favor by not eating "as much" when in all honesty they probably consume more calories in that one meal then they should all day. Sugar is THE biggest issue for most people - they think because they don't eat a lot of food (but spend the day sucking down soda and eating candy) that they should be thin and healthy. They don't realize how much damage they are doing to their metabolisms. But hey, in the end, they are the ones who have to live with their poor body image and awful feelings about themselves. I have ceased to have sympathy for people who are truly capable of changing themselves but won't get off their lazy butts to do it. Plain and simple. I did it, and if I can do it then so can anybody!!!
Well, I think I hear some cottage cheese and a protein bar calling my name! Gotta run!
