So in the last two days I have been both on and off the wagon when it comes to my dieting goals. Yesterday I ate pretty well and I rode my new spin bike for 30 minutes. Speaking of spinning, I forgot how intense that workout can be. Only 15 minutes in and 1/2 way “up” my first “hill,” I thought I was going to pass out. I’m excited to jump on and ride again tonight. Which brings me back to my “off and on” goals issue. So today I started off pretty well, decent breakfast and lunch. I even went to my first private yoga session (which was amazing by the way – even with my 30 lb sidekick). Then I stopped at McDonalds on the way home and picked up a large Coke and 3 chocolate chip cookies. I then proceeded to eat several chips while watching “The Office” on Netflix. While I’m planning on riding again tonight, I think it’s going to be pretty difficult to burn off all of those extra calories.
That’s my MO lately. I’m not afraid to work hard when I exercise. In fact, I’m not afraid of doing it every day. I’ve just never really watched my eating very well. My plan right now is to get really religious with my daily exercise, and then really work on the food. For this week, I think I’m going to work just on breakfast. Once I get breakfast going well, I’ll move on to lunch and dinner.
I’m very excited about tomorrow! Last week a friend of mine invited me along on her yearly birthday massage ritual. Another good friend of mine is going to watch the little man while I get a massage and a manicure! Yay!
Given my recent back pain, my new goal is to “reclaim” my body. I told Nate the other night that I feel like 1 year and 9 months ago I lost control of my own body. Between being pregnant and taking care of Fynn, I really haven’t taken care of myself very well. I just need to start taking care of my body and my mind as well.
Here’s to a great weekend (and my first Mother’s Day)! I hope all you mommies out there have a great, relaxing weekend!
