I have been ROCKING this workout thing all week.
OK, it's only been 3 days. Don't tinkle on my parade, mmkay?!
(BTW, getting up at 5:30am still sucks porcupine balls.)
So, I have finally figured out the deets of the challenge. Thanks to OC Banster!!!!! She so smart.
She suggested that I pay myself for each workout, and if I wake up and do one in the morning, I should get twice as much!
So. Man, I really say/type/whatever 'so' a lot. Maybe that's what I should have given up for Lent.
So (ugh), here's my plan-------> Step 1 is to work out 5 days this week....before work. So far so good. Step 2 is I will pay myself $2 for every workout completed after 8am, and $4 for every workout I complete before 8am (this week's workouts included).
Currently I've worked out 3 times before 8, so my balance is $12.
FYI, the shoes cost $54.$42 bucks to go!
I'm calculating....which isn't my strongest suit......that I will be able to buy the shoes somewhere between 2-3 weeks. That's if I bust my ass and keep up the working out 5 times a week thang....and most of them being before 8am.
OK, one more thing, I ran this morning and my legs felt straight up like concrete. Like concrete with dumbells attached. UGHHHH. It's so frustrating to run a really good run on one day and just feel crappy the next. But Mommykinz pointed out that not every day can be stellar. You're right. You are so right.
I just had an epiphany while sitting here at work, munching on my Grape Nuts (I don't know why that matters, but just go with it), that it's no wonder I had a shitty run this morning, I freaking was a tile maniac last night! See, it's that time of year again, for the Tax Refund Bathroom Renovation Project, and we are redoing our upstairs bath (yes, yes, pictures to come, don't worry...be happy). Well, seeing as my hubby was getting close to jamming a tile through the wall in frustration, after laying 3 tiles, I took over the task. And there I was, busting out 35 square feet of tile, on my hands and knees.....hips, back, legs, butt, feet a'screamin'. Of course my run is going to be less than stellar, my body was wiped from the hard labor I put it through last night!!! I'm surprised that I didn't have a worse time for my 3 miles this morning, than the 32 minutes that it took!
There's really no point to that little story, just thought I needed to write it out so it made more sense in my noggin.
Ok, I'm going now.
Cheers y'all!!! Have a great day!!
