Week 1 Tuesday
Strong is Sexy Fitness Challenge
My alarm went off at 5:45 this morning and surprisingly I wasn't as tired as usual. However, I still hit the snooze a few times and finally found the motivation that I need to move myself out of bed closer to 6:30am. First thing I did was turn on my laptop. I had my internet tabs saved and set to open up to my morning workout. It was a way to not make any excuses to skip my workout. I debated on whether I was going to workout on the porch or my room. I opted for my room since my roommate was up and didn't have to worry about making noise. I put on a basic workout outfit and set my cooking timer for 20 secs. Yes, it would be far easier if I had a gym boss timer, but don't have one and not sure I want to buy one. However, I do remember someone posting a link to a free interval timer online....really wish I could remember where I saw that. Does anyone use the gymboss? or have another option they prefer using for interval workouts?
Booty Firm Up
I swapped M/Tue since Fit Foodies met for our bi-weekly walk Monday.
I only managed 4 rounds instead of 6, because the workout was pretty killer.
I also modified the Push Up/Monkey Push up (pike press) to just modified push ups since I was unable to complete more then just mini-mini's of the exercise.

daily affirmation (actually Mondays)
I greet each day with enthusiasm and as an opportunity to move my wonderful body!
I have taught you in the way of wisdom; I have led you in right paths.
When you walk, your steps will not be hindered; And when you run, you will not stumble

Shortly after 2:30pm I started craving snack foods. I didn't feel hungry, and I had a BIG and yummy lunch so the only other thing I could think of was that I had not consumed enough water. I filled up my water bottle but still ended up having a snack (#4) just because the craving was pretty loud and glad that I didn't have any bad snackie foods, because I would have totally caved. Then closer to 5 I another snack (#5).; mainly because I thought I was going to be working my 2nd job last night, but they canceled just after i poured the milk. I also munched on more animal cookies later in the evening; really need to stop eating them or better yet stop buying them and bringing them home.....they are just so yummy.
