Can someone pleeaze get this monkey off my back!!!!

Monday, June 28, 2010

Well spark friends, I started a new diet(very limited carbs!) emoticon and added doubles to my weekly workout. I guess I call myself trying to bring sexy back. My husband who thought that my p90x workout was a joke saw me blinded by sweat about a week ago and finally figured out that I was doing a GROWN WOMAN workout and not just a walk in the park type deal. emoticon Now for the last month he has been watching me workout. He would come up stairs eating yes eating, while I was working out or even sit there and watch me 'till he fell asleep, I guess counting sheep wasn't as fun! Of course I wasn't working out till about 8-10p.m.

Well he secretly decided when I was off to spinning last saturday morning that he would sneak and do the p90x legs and shoulders workout....how about he was sore for 4 days (I figured he would have a hard time seeing as he would only sparatically go to the gym, max himself out to prove that he could still handle the same weights he could from college and be too sore to go back to the gym until another month.)

So I decided that I was doing my workouts too late and with adding doubles I would do a workout in the morning....then one after work.

Well my dear husband has decided that he wants to workout in the morning too...but not with me. He says he doesn't want me watching him workout (WOW!)

So to be a good sport emoticonI now wake up at 5a.m., do my workout, wake him up at 6:30a.m., prepare my monster breakfast, his breakfast (he refuses to even touch or even stare at what I am eating too long so we are looking at two different meals) prepare lunch and snacks then figure out how to get myself in diva mode (fly hair, 4-5 inch heels, outfit matching) and off to work.

Well it's been a week and I am tired as hell! emoticon During times like this I would just dip my whole head in a trough of my favorite food and eat till my heart was content and forget spinning class today....well I guess I can't do that.

My hair is all over my head, spilled cottage cheese on my jacket (didn't see that till I got to work!), I have on my secretaries' slippers (she keeps a pair at work I don't know were my BCBG's are) a stank attitude and a monkey on my back!

Well, I guess I should be happy my husband is working out... RIGHT? emoticon

Keep me lifted,

Abbie

    You really are doing great! And it's wonderful that your hubby has been inspired by you. I wish mine would be inspired by me... but then I could probably stand to be a bit more "inspiring".

    We have the P90X workout but hubby got it and then was in a car accident right after. He didn't even get to get started on it! He's better now, and I think he plans on starting it as soon as we get the basement finished so he'll have a wide open space to work out in.

    Keep up the good work! You are a fabulous lady!

    You know my hubby is the gym fanatic! I don't care to go unless I can walk run around the track. He watches me workout too & I guess I motivated him to start back to the gym too. Well, I know I should go harder on the weekend cause getting my head together isn't that hard but I do some yoga or Gilad. During the week, I have added 2 additional 60min cardio DVD session. I have Cathe Friedrich & she can be tough. So I too am watchful of what I eat & doing better with these last 2 weeks. I would love to be at goal by my wedding anniversary. Got plans to wear something sleek sexy & divalicious!

    God bless & give yourself a break every now & then. . . .Dee

    LOL yes you should be happy your husband is working out, but you need to remind him that it didn't start easy for you and that you don't want to get up extra early to protect his ego. I don't know how long you have been married, but you can work out together. You can encourage each other and you can fix breakfast together. You and hubby can laugh about this together.

    You don't want to burn out. You are doing so well. to have adapted to such a schedule....don't let it slip away.
