I am pretty sure I mentioned the fact that I want to make some changes to my body, and eat better etc many many many times on here. I have that tummy that has always been my “problem area” and I always wish it was flatter. I am constantly on a rollercoaster of eating better and then letting it all fall to shit and falling off the wagon and all my hard work goes out the window. I am not being hard on myself, I am the one making the choices and I have always said “I want to live”. If I want to enjoy myself and pig out on pizza and chips then I am going to do it. My problem is that I do that, and then I think oh well, I already messed up and just keep going. I need to stop doing that.
I have also mentioned that I have been participating in the HBBC challenge that Amanda at Run to the Finish is hosting. It has helped me make some really positive changes. I am drinking a lot more water every day, something I have always really sucked at. I am also trying to increase my fruits and veggies intake. Part of the challenge that I think is amazing is all the encouragement that I get from my fellow participants. It’s so great to have the support system.
I was so inspired by the group that on Wednesday I got up early to do another at home workout. I usually go to CrossFit on Wednesdays after work but I couldn’t this week, so I got up early and did my own thing.
10 sit ups
Anyone who says they don’t have time to work out is cray cray in my opinion. This took max 8 minutes and I worked up a good sweat. After that I did a Tabata and did it with Russian twist. By the 6th round my abs were killing me. I finished it off with 5 sets of 10 strict press with dumbbells. Mental note- I need heavier dumbbells.
After work I went and got my hair done. I decided that my ombre had seen it’s last day. I think it was more of a Summer thing. So I went back to my old faithful look and went dark dark dark.
After feeling properly spoiled at the salon, I went home just to feel even more spoiled to have dinner made and served to me by my amazing guy. It was delicious. Man am I ever a lucky girl. Seriously, how did I get to be so lucky and end up with such an amazing life? I ask myself this question all the time.
How often do you change up your “do”?
What did you have for dinner last night?
