Along with everyone else in the tri-state area, I’ve battled cabin fever this winter – after multiple minus degree days and snow upon snow upon snow and you’re stuck inside, forced to make up meals from what’s in the cupboards… you go slightly crazy.
Slightly crazy in my world means I spent too much time texting, too much time watching reality TV (the fact that I know what’s going on in the Kardashian world is nothing I’m proud of), and too much time just plain lying around.
It had to end.
I woke up two Mondays ago proceeded to go into Drill Sergeant Mode. It’s all or nothing with me – that’s the only way I get things done!
The main thing on my agenda this winter is to get back on track with exercising. I lost all motivation over the fall and winter and stopped completely, except maybe once or twice a week giving a half-hearted attempt at being active.
So – my new plan was to complete P90X3 – the latest 12 week workout program from Tony Horton. The main difference between P90X and P90X3 is that the workouts are now only 30 minutes long (they used to be an hour, sometimes more). I am loving loving loving them so much. It’s the traditional Tony workout I’m used to, but intense and only half an hour! I’m mid-week-two and enjoying it a lot. I also have immediately snapped back into that surge of energy you get when you work out – there is nothing like that delightful feeling of being just ever-so-sore and when you hit midweek yoga day? Oh, it feels so good to stretch.
I’m excited to also firm up my eating plans. I am eating okay now, but could be a tad bit stricter and plan on doing so soon.
So my Health Goals this week are:
-Finish up Week Two of P90X3
-Watch random snacking
-Start planning ahead for next week by writing out meal plan and shopping!
