Good evening lovely people,
Me and my chicka Essence went to Planet fitness today on my last day of my wonderful week off from work. Oh how sweet it was (the week off, lol). We have worked out 4 out of the seven days that I was off and I’m PUMPED!!! I know it’s just been a week, but I love the feeling of going hard at the gym and the hot shower afterwards. I swear I feel like the shower is my treat for the hard work. Yeah, it’s the simple things that make me happy. We did 15 minutes on the elliptical and 1 mile on the treadmill. Then we did the 30-minute circuit training. Boy, do I give my daughter a hard time, but it’s such a blessing to know that she cares enough to keep me motivated. (Because sista girl is always wanting to give up, lol) I can admit that I’m at that stage that if I don’t have someone encouraging me to go to the gym and stick to the hard crap, I’ll have every excuse in the book not to go. LAZY!!!
I will say that I’m not quite where I’m supposed to be on eating correctly, because I have all of the right foods, but I just don’t eat enough. I know I’ll have to learn to eat 5-6 small meals a day, and I’m getting to that I promise. I came home and fixed me and my other kiddo, Brooklyn, a smoothie. It had 2 bananas
1/2 cup of blueberries
1/2 cup of oatmeal
1/4 cup of Simple Truth Organic plain low fat yogurt
1/2 cup of Simple Truth Organic 2% milk
2 handfuls of spinach
Let me tell ya, it was delish!!!
Anywho, I’m already sleepy, which is awesome, because I usually have problems falling asleep. So, another benefit of working out, YAY!
So I shall bid you all a goodnight (in my Mary Poppins voice)
But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. (Isaiah 40:31 KJV)
