1. Today I can feel every breath I take and I can’t lift my arms above my shoulders. Pretty sure that means I got a good workout yesterday. I’m really looking forward to class next week. There’s also one of those social deals going on right now for a Core Barre class. I’m debating buying it. The place is hella expensive and not terribly convenient, so I’d likely only use my coupon and then never go back. Would you buy one of those deals just to get two workouts? I’m thinking I should, just to get the core work in.
2. I work from home. In fact, I work from my dining room table. As you might guess the dining room is right next to the kitchen. I spend significant chunks of my day fighting off the siren call of the refrigerator. I’ve found that if I can reduce my snacking, my weight slowly moves down. When I snack, I plateau. I like being at my house (because I can take breaks and do chores), but I’m beginning to wonder if I need to take my computer and head to the library to work.
3. G recently wrote a post about real women and confidence. I’m really confident about a lot of things in my life – my intelligence, my social skills, my ability to get things done. Lately, however, I’m not confident about how I look. A lot of that has to do with feeling “soft” and out of shape and to be honest, just plain old. Things are just shifting around in ways I don’t like. I know some of it is the typical woman mental games, but rather than focusing on that, I’m making 2012 the year where I get strong again. (Hence my focus on core and strength.)
Bonus: I have a big box of Alaskan Smoked Porter being delivered to my house today, which requires an adult signature. I also want (see, practicing positivity here ’cause I nearly said “need”) to run 8 miles. It’s really going to suck if I have to run them by going around the quarter mile block in front of my house…
