Just got done with Day 9 of the 30 day `challenge. whoo...shoot...these are the world's longest "12" minutes ever!!! It took me 15, but I made it and i didn't die!
Bodyrock.tv---Day 4, Week 2
Oh yeah...in the past 2 weeks, I think I have sweat buckets more than I have ever in my entire LIFE!!! It's good. I feel myself getting stronger in these routines...haven't noticed much on the scale and it's a smidge disheartening. (who am I fooling, it sucks!!!!!) I've been eating "primal" all week...no dairy, no grains, no starch, no sugar (except what's in fruit and veggies)....all that and all I am is smack dab right where I was before Christmas. I think that my body Likes this number or something....
I have to admit that last night, I total caved and ate a brownie with the kids. I was hurting (these injections can start working in my knee anytime now..seriously!!!!) and mad about the scale and other things in my life. It seems that I have the hardest time keeping strong when things I have no control of don't go my way. To some extent, I can't control the #'s on the scale....sure, I can control what I eat, how much I exercise...but obviously, that doesn't always show evidence right away. Annoying. That's it, pure and simple...when I'm annoyed with the world, I want comfort. And when I'm not finding that comfort, nothing soothes temporarily like a warm brownie...but then it turns into a chocolaty pit of loathing and dispair.
So there ya go, I'm Not Perfect. I mess up, I beat myself up, and I do unhealthy things even when I know better. Constant battle with the flesh....
Ok, that's about all of that I can take before I go dig brownie crumbs out of the pan ;)
