Rest day! And I've earned it! I worked out for a solid 6 days straight for at least 60 minutes each day!
I let myself sleep in too and man did it feel weird to wake up to daylight. I actually did not want to take a day off of working out, but my muscles need the day to recuperate.
I goofed on food yesterday. Not in the way you would think. Breakfast was two eggs over easy with a slice of toast. Lunch was 1 can of tuna with 1 tbsp of mayo and 4 whole grain crackers... and that was all I ate for lunch. My friend came over and I forgot about eating the rest of my lunch (salad) or my snack. I didn't eat till dinner time and that made me so sick feeling I could hardly eat. So I didn't eat near enough yesterday. And with how much I'm working out, I don't need to go skipping snacks or 1/2 of a meal. But it was an honest mistake, so lesson learned. I need to eat even if my friend comes over, or life gets in the way. I honestly don't normally have problems like this. But in case it comes up again, I will remember to go ahead and eat.
Yoga. Any suggestions? I want to start back doing yoga, I used to do it years ago and love how flexible I was. I don't remember any of it. I don't know where to begin. It all looks so hard. But I saw that video that Sparkpeople had on the plus size yoga instructor and then saw an article on Facebook about a plus size woman who does yoga, and I mean all the hard, lift your body off the floor into a pretzel, hard stuff to do. Which made me think, maybe I don't have to wait till I'm a size 8 to do this. I'm going to give it a try, I just don't know where to start.
How do you find the time? I want to add in walking, and I obviously can't do that at 0430 (okay I could, but I find walking around the neighborhood at that time creepy), and doing it after DH comes home would be rush hour and not really safe to walk (we don't have sidewalks). I'm working on getting a treadmill, but I don't want to wait on that to start walking. So noon-ish is the best time or right around 0900. I'd have to take the kids with me and I'd have to put a hold on homeschool so that we could go walk. It will be great for the kids and me, but how do I fit it into our day? Same goes for yoga, I don't know when I'm supposed to squeeze it in. Do you do yoga at night or in the morning? Or midday? I do my workout now by getting up extra early. I need to do that so I have 'me time' before the kids get up and working out is 'me time' as well, as I do a lot of thinking while I work out. But making time for all the working out, yoga, walking and such is important. If I want to improve i need to make the time to put in the effort.
Oh, and shy little ol' me is going to a "Salad in a Jar" party on Sunday! I said no at first, especially since the fraud on our account happened, you're supposed to bring salad stuff and with no money I can't do that. But the hostess insist that I come anyway and that she has all of the supplies that I need and was most insistent. How could I say no? Part of me really wants to go. I need to work on making more friends, I really like the lady who is having the party and it is mostly people from our church going. It's a great opportunity to meet people and open up to people. So party after church on Sunday,
