I did pretty good yesterday. I managed my 500 calorie deficit (plus a few for good measure) and pushed myself with the elliptical and felt really happy with my workout yesterday.
That being said ... I'm ready for today to be over :)
I got to work and went right in to a 2+ hour meeting. A software demo from a company we are considering purchasing a new system from. This is the 3rd one of these in the past 2 weeks and while they are interesting and cool, they are also a big time suck and I'm glad they are done now.
I decided I am not going to the fitness center after work today. I might do some Just Dance when I get home but I am worn out and think I deserve an evening off from that place. As I look back at my blog from Monday I see that I said I would go Wed-Fri but that is because I wasn't planning on going on Tuesday. Since I did, I am still hitting my planned 3 days of the fitness center after work.
However, next week I am stepping COMPLETELY out of my comfort zone and trying something I have been wanting to try for a while now. I am terrified, but am going to do it anyway. I signed up for a trial 10 day membership at a yoga studio. My hairstylist also teaches yoga at this studio and has been encouraging me to try it for a little while. They were having a special, 10 days for $20. I figure even if I hate it and only go to 1 class I'm only out $20, right? So far I've signed up for 5 classes during those 10 days. Starting next Tuesday evening with my friend/hairdresser in a Raw Beginner class. Specifically tailored to people who have never done yoga before (i.e. me!). What if I can't do the moves? I am not very strong or flexible. What if I fall over? What if I make a fool of myself? What if I'm still too fat to bend myself into those positions????? These are the things going through my head. That is why I am terrified. But, I'm going to try it anyway. That's what this is all about right? Stepping out of our comfort zones and just trying.
I am getting my hair colored tomorrow morning (from above mentioned friend/hairdresser/yoga instructor) so that I will look spiffy for our DFW BOOBS lunch on Sunday afternoon! I am excited to meet some peeps in person before Chicago, yay!!!
I hope you all have a great weekend :)
