The Past Week

Wednesday, June 02, 2010

Has been INSANE. :) Seriously, though. I haven't been in the gym since Tuesday morning that we left for Vegas. I am disappointed in myself, but at the same time trying to look at it realistically. I was in Vegas... I was sleeping in til 11 and staying out til 6 in the morning, not exactly the environment I would expect myself to work out too hard in. Blah.. But, the good news is that I walked constantly, went swimming and dancing, all that fun stuff. I did indulge each night in limitless booze at the casino while playing dollar black jack, though. But still, I look at it as a once in a lifetime event (hopefully I will return, just not sure when... and don't think I'll party as hard..), so I am glad that I didn't hold back.

Also, something that made me really really happy, I felt amazing with myself. I wore my bikini with pride, as well as my little sundresses and evening attire. I looked HOT. And even though I wasn't doing that great food and drink wise, it didnt make me get down on myself. That has been a major issue throughout this journey. So I allowed myself some room to live it up, and I still looked in the mirror and saw an amazing beautiful woman.

I do have to admit, not working out really killed my mood this weekend. That and being totally drained from Vegas but still having to move in the heat. :( I was mean with my boyfriend. It was unnecessary. I haven't made it to the gym as of yet this week, but finishing moving and cleaning yesterday had me sweating my butt off for a few hours, so I'll take it. After my evening commitment at 8 tonight, I might hit the gym. But I also have homework due at midnight. Ahhh!

Excited for Bonnaroo next weekend, woot woot! That will be a much more relaxing vacation. I will hold myself to eating a little better while there since we are taking a lot of our own food. I also wont be drinking that much for fear of over heating. I will be walking tons I imagine. Rocking a bikini, cotton skirt, and rain boots if necessary. It'll be hot! :) Once I get back I am doing a 12 week makeover work out I found in women's fitness RX. I like that it has so much weight lifting but I can incorporate my own cardio. I'm excited pretty much. :)

Have a great rest-o-the-week everyone!

    I am glad you are back into the fold of things! I am sure you kicked it hard in Vegas....real hard!!! It is good to kick back like that though. I am sure you enjoyed it! Were you skipping when you had on your bikini and sundresses? Heh!

    Working out misses you and you miss it! *whispering* Listen to your body! Tonight, HIT IT HARD!!! You will feel great afterwards! Enjoy the rest of your week and Bonnaroo, too!

    Sounds like a Big Time! I love that you felt confident! I *rarely* feel adequate, looks-wise.

    I'm with you on heat & no exercise making me cranky. I've come to NEED that. I always knew my body needed fitness (lupus, to stay strong for when I *can't* do things!) but the mental thing? A little surprising for ME. I was NOT athletic as a kid! ;p

    It's good that you're okay with taking some time off, just get back when you're ready!
