This week I feel awesome. I didn't start my goal of exercising 6x until Monday. I know it's no excuse but last Saturday Ribbon Blossoms had a boutique and every minute that wasn't spent taking care of my family's necessities was spent making product! I know I should have made exercise a priority,but you see I have this wonderful friend and business partner who I can't let down!
But Monday I was determined! Even though I wasn't able to exercise when I planned because of an extremely clingy, whiny 2 year old. I STILL got on the treadmill at 11:00 pm after daddy got home and could take said 2 year old off my hands! I refused to let the start of a new week go by without exercising! I got on the treadmill a little earlier yesterday at 10 p.m. Maybe tonight I'll actually get on during prime time! As I've explained before, trying to exercise in the morning just does not work for me at this point. But if I can hop on the treadmill and enjoy a good TV show, I'm good.
I did however keep my diet goals really well this week. Keeping my food choices healthy, NOT grazing from my kids' plates, and lots and lots of water! I'm down 2 1/2 lbs today!
This week's question:
Share some of the music that you work out to.
What helps you rock it!?
What gets your blood pumpin?
As I mentioned before, I usually watch TV on the treadmill. However, when I'm getting on late at night after all the good shows are over (no TiVo, remember?), or when I take my workout outside I HEART my ipod!
I have a workout playlist which of course contains all the upbeat NKOTB songs, then some stuff that's much too young for me (LOL) like Avril Lavigne, & Britney Spears. I have some *Nsync & Backstreet Boys and then some heart-pumpin rock music, both classic and newer. Bon Jovi, Poison, Metallica, Linkin Park, Fallout Boy, Click Five, The Killers ...I just have a really eclectic collection of upbeat music and it really motivates me!
This week I will: REALLY exercise 6x (2 down...4 to go!), Keep drinkin' the water, and try some new healthy recipes that I've seen floating around! I'll let you know how they turn out!
Have a Healthy Wednesday everyone!
