Easy Workout…Riiiiigghhtt

Oh my goodness!!! I am officially aware of how out of shape I am!

Seriously, my leg, ab and arm muscles are shaking right now from this “easy” workout.

The problem is (or should I say, the sad truth is) I am so out of shape, that what should have been an “easy” workout was extremely exhausting and hard…and I didn’t even complete it all.

Even though I am sticking to my eating plan and am now down over 7 pounds, I now realize that sitting and watching workouts thinking, I could do that one if I wanted to, was definitely a false sense of self. I could not do any of those workouts if this one was so hard.

My goal now, even though the group I am following will be moving on to different workouts, is to do this workout daily until I can complete the whole thing including all reps and sets.

Tomorrow and each day after, I am going to keep doing this workout until it becomes “EASY”!

Wish me luck! Better yet, if you have slipped out of the habit of physical exercise, get back to it! We all have to start/restart somewhere.

What is your least favorite workout/exercise (but you do it anyway because you know it is good for your body)?

Almost Caved In to Hangry

Traveling out of town for the day and towards the end of the day we almost caved in to “hangry”. Definition from Oxford Languages: Hangry = bad-tempered or irritable as a result of hunger.

We were making excuses of why we should go to one of our favorite restaurants:

1️⃣ We don’t get here often, we should treat ourselves.

2️⃣ It’s so far to get home, we are hungry now!

3️⃣ It’s one meal out, we’ve eaten healthy all day.

👆🏼It’s not the fact that it’s a restaurant, it’s the fact that most likely we would have made very poor choices while there, Ex: Loaded mashed potatoes, fried onion petals, etc…

In the end, we made the decision to each have a protein bar on the drive home. Stopped at the grocery store and picked up a rotisserie chicken, lettuce, and a bottle of Bolthouse Farms dressing. 😋

Bolthouse Salsa Ranch, Rotisserie Chicken, Spring Mix Lettuce
Quick and Healthy Salad

Aside from being a much healthier choice, we didn’t feel miserable after eating, it only cost $16.00 (compared to the $40+ it would have cost to eat out) AND we have leftovers. 😊

I’d say that is a WIN, WIN! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
