I needed that will power this morning more than ever. Yesterday, my food was on track and I set up a quality workout for after work. My workout was much harder than I anticipated, and I created it myself so I should have known better.
This Machine: EVIL!!!!
This Workout: Even EVILER!!!
I'm not as sore as I thought I would be after the workout but I am definitely tender in some places! I have another doozie scheduled for today and I also have to clean my house and mow my yard so there is some calories to be burned.
Today I drew the short straw and had to take the 5am shift at work, yuck! And this is where the willpower came into play. Every single time I work the morning shift I stop and get a biscuit from Hardee's. The wonderful buttery, eggy, cheesy biscuit (remember I'm fat, I obviously think food is amazing and if I cant eat it I will talk about it) that taste sooooo good. I actually have gotten this biscuit every early morning shift, on track or not, I just add it to my calorie count for the day. This morning I was not willing to jeopardize my new "on trackness" for a few bites of pleasure.
So instead I got to work and fixed my yummy bowl of oatmeal. I actually like oatmeal but not near as much as a biscuit. I have some snacks packed up for the rest of the morning then off to the rest of my day.
I wish you guys could see how the spell checker has reacted to this post. Apparently I made up too many words and spell checker does not like it.
I have been trying to get back into my normal life and out of vacation mode. I have finally read all my back issues of SELF magazine (love it) and found some new workouts. I am also so happy to announce that Biggest Loser has finally put all of their seasons on Netflix. That's just an extra boost of motivation. I am finally getting to watch some of the earlier seasons that I never saw or only saw a few episodes. In 2004 I was not obsessed with the show or becoming healthy so its fun to have some new favorites.
Alright, I'm off for the morning, no one should post before 7 am unless you are a mommy blogger with children who don't sleep, or you have to be at work at the butt crack of dawn!
