I suck .. I suck .. I suck.. I have plenty of reasons but I am not motivating myself.

I was thinking this morning of all my reasons and I am going to list them here so that I can look at them .. I might even put them on everyting in the house..

1. My blood pressure has been going back up since I have slowed my exercising
2. I am tired (this is a reason.. I had more energy when I was working out)
3. I want to look damn good in a pair of jeans again
4. I want to be able to run and jump and tumble in the grass with Thomas
5. I want to be healthy for my next pregnancy
6. I hate being over weight
7. I want to run a marathon

Shopping for jeans

I wish I would have read this before going out and buying my jeans. It makes me feel better knowing that I am not a freak who hates to buy jeans. By the way, do you ever hear of people having as hard time finding shorts, pants, or underwear? Why do jean manufacturers make it so damn difficult?

I made it to the gym today and attended another awesome abs class. I am a little disappointed that I will not be able to go to Monday's class (I have to be in DC), but there is always Wednesday and Friday to kick my butt into gear. I did upper body weights and 15 minutes on the cross trainer. I am letting myself slide on the cardio on awesome abs days. I am going like crazy in that class.

I am forfieting my gym time today. Thomas did not fall asleep until just after 1230. He skipped his morning nap and fought the afternoon nap. Paul had a great idea when I called him complaining that I was not going to be able to go to the gym. He told me to go for a walk. I forgot that I could exercise without setting foot in the gym. We did two laps around the complex and I am sweating. I did something today and I am going to be proud of that. I am super sore from yesterday's workout. Yaa!

Now if I could get rid of the brownies. I snuck one this morning.

So far today I have had.
8 oz of milk
3 Blueberry muffins (yummy.. hey now Thomas had 1 1/2)
1 brownie
32 oz of water

Two days in the gym, and they were in a row. I am going back tomorrow. Woo Hoo. My eating is not great yet, but I am not going to kill myself I am going to get back into the swing of things slowly so I don't fall off the wagon so easily.

My exercise today included a 30 minute awesome ab class. When it was over I was wondering if that was all. Then I took a couple of steps. LOL I am incorporating it into my workouts on Monday, Wednesdays, and Fridays now.

I am serious about doing all of the life changes and I thought I was doing really good this week with all the walking I did in DC but I think the emotional eating from letting the MIL get to me bit that in the nub. I have no excuses this week. I have a car (or will tomorrow), I only work Thursday and Friday, the house is pretty clean. I can and will do this!!

Goals for tomorrow:
NO Caffeinated beverages
1 1/2 hours at the gym
More water. (I am sitting here thirsty saying that..)
1/2 hour of me time
Right now I am reading Energy's July/August issue and I am going to use it as an outline for my strength training workouts. I was using a free activtrax workout with my membership but I had to start paying and it was not worth it to me to pay 20 bucks a month.
I need to set goals and follow through with them.
