Changing It Up

Man, today I woke up and I was bloated and gassy and it was odd. So instead of getting immeditately on the treadmill I decided to eat and do my "morning routine" so that my stomach would feel better. So now my day is all off schedule.

I did my chest workout at 8a, typically I do weights now at 1p. This means my PWO shake is off and now my eating is off LOL! This is something that would have freaked me out a few weeks ago but pfft...who cares. I took Boomer on a walk today. I planned on 3 miles but only got 2 because I had to pee. So now i'll take her for another one since the weather is AWESOME today.

Instead of getting on the treadmill I popped in a Cathe DVD. I don't have the luxury of changing up cardio equipment since a treadmill is all I own. I do have TONS of step tapes though. WOW! What a workout! It was a nice change of pace and I think I burned more calories doing it. I had my HRM on but I think the battery is dying and it doesn't work as well. I've worn that thing out HA!

Now i'm going to my mom's around 4p and doing more aerobics...it's fun with her :) Tonight i'll do even MORE cardio watching ANTM. It seems like a lot but I feel guilty just watching TV so if i'm on the treadmill while doing it then i'll feel better.

I'm really trying to mentally prep myself that a cruise DOES NOT mean go on a wild eating spree. I really need to do what I did in '07. I ate but not like I did last year. I'm trying to focus on relaxation, warm weather, and just the movement and sound of the ocean ahhh..can't wait. At the same time i'm freaked out! I'm still a mental case about my weight and body.

I think you'll be fine! Different types of cardio does really make a difference. I've been changing it up too!!! Zumba! :D

LOVE the new look, it's really springy and beautiful! Yes, I agree mixing up the cardio is the best way to get some great changes in your body! Have a WONDERFUL time on your cruise and I'm sure you'll have that eating under control! HUGS!

I love your new blog layout! Very springy.. :)

Don't stress too much about the cruise (I know - easier said than done). Just don't start doubting yourself - fear ALWAYS screws me up! You CAN do it April - you can do whatever you want! Just look at all you've accomplished in the past!

That's a great idea about switching up the cardio...it probably challenged your body more too since it's something you don't do that often.
