Nothing, and I mean nothing, makes me more cranky then when I am geared up for a workout and something gets in the way and prevents it from happening. Especially when that "something" may or may not be my fault. Yes, that'll get me every single time!
You see friends, while I aim to be active most days of the week the truth is I don't always want to be active. Some days its a struggle. Some days I want to park my butt on the sofa and stay there. So on the days where I do actually feel like moving and working up a sweat its better if nothing stands in my way.
Like, I dunno, say a missing sports bra.
Now the plan was a 4 mile tempo run on the treadmill. If you're a woman I'm sure you can guess why that got nixed almost immediately. Let me just say that these "ladies" do not run free. Ever. I'd wear a bra in the shower if that were practical. I'll leave it at that.
I was not a happy camper (Ok if I'm being honest, I'm never a happy camper...sleeping in a tent blows!)
There were definitely a few disgruntled F-bombs in there too but thankfully that moment was not caught on film.
Instead of giving up completely I made the best out of the situation and walked on the treadmill for 2 miles. Not my ideal workout but as a wise woman once said "2 miles is better than no miles"
Workout Attempt One: Fail (well, mostly)
Time for round 2.
Since I had been bitten by the workout bug (and I had indulged at the company bake sale) I decided that getting in a sweat session was a must after work. Enter Jillian Michaels, the double whammy.
On deck first: Jillian Michaels No More Trouble Zones. I hadn't done this in months and I am pleased to say its not as hard as I remembered. Its hard, just not AS hard. NMTZ was followed up with 6W26P level one, which was also not quite as challenging as the first few times. Either I am getting stronger or totally wussing out and half-assing most of the moves. Let's go with option A for arguments sake ok?
1 hour and 15 minutes later and I had finally gotten in the workout I'd been looking for since lunch time.
Wait a minute...What the hell kinda thumbs up is that? C'mon Sam, you can do better then that!
Now you got it!!
On a completely unrelated note (although also deserving of an excited thumbs up) I am attending my very first Toronto and area blogger meet up tomorrow. I am really excited to meet some of the fabulous ladies that write some of the blogs I read daily. I will definitely be back with a recap for everyone who couldn't make it!
Happy Friday everyone!
So tell me, any fun plans this weekend??
