GAH! I'm still feeling so unmotivated! What is my problem? Usually these things pass quickly, but the longer and longer I'm dealing with my foot, the less I seem to want to do anything! But - I'm not wearing this injury well - my jeans are tight (I don't own a scale, so this is my super scientific way of knowing if I've gained weight or not) - when I see myself in spandex I notice a few little lumps and rolls that didn't used to be there. I'm so disappointed in myself that I'm in this spot. But...only thing to do is to get moving, right?
So, to enforce a little accountability, I'm going to start listing my previous week's workouts and then also list my goals for going forward. The shame of having to write down that I did nothing will hopefully get my booty in gear!
So here's my last week in review (Monday through Sunday):
Monday: Spin class followed by Bodypump class
Tuesday: 2 mile slushy run in the rain/snow
Wednesday: Nothing (boo!)
Thursday: Jillian Michaels "Banish Fat, Boost your Metabalism" DVD
Friday: 3 mile run
Saturday: Nothing (boo!)
Sunday: 3.5 mile run
So - nothing spectacular. The best day of the week was Monday with 2 solid hours of working out. The runs are short, but I'm hopeful that going forward I can keep adding some mileage on. I need to incorporate more weights and would also like to do yoga once a week. On the days when I do short runs I should come home and do another short workout to increase the benefits on those days. So that's my goal for this week.
Plan for this week:
Monday: Normally I would do Spin/Bodypump again - but my daughter is sick with a fever/cough, so I couldn't take her to the gym daycare. I'm going to do Bob Harper's cardio workout and then Ab-Ripper X.
Tuesday: 2 or 3 mile run (depends on foot) - Jillian Michaels Killer Buns and Thighs
Wednesday: 1 hour pool running
Thursday: Jillian Michaels Banish Fat/Boost Metabalism
Friday: 2 or 3 mile run - Zuzuka light you tube workout
Saturday: Firm Power Yoga
Sunday: 4 mile run (hopefully if foot is holding up well).
So that's the plan. I will report next Monday to see how I follow through. Please please keep your fingers crossed that no one else in this family gets sick - my son is turning 8 this week and I hope he/we are all healthy!
And just to get myself (and maybe you) motivated - here's some quotes from my favorite lady, Jillian...
