I decided that today I was going to actually ASK my body what it wanted. Instead of MAKING it do something that it didn’t.
That means that I put my workout clothes out with a note last night.
I woke up to these beauties this morning.
if i ever get married, this is the colour I want w/ purple. just sayin’
Had gluten free toast w/ PB, honey and banana for brekky. Then went and worked my ass off. SummerShapeUp ‘work your guns and sweat on some hills’

- This was awesome, cause I was able to pyramid it. It challenged me.
I poured sweat on the treadmill. It was brilliant. I am usually on the ‘dreadmill’ but I just focused on pushing myself and asking my body to give all that it had. I love having five minute intervals, cause it mentally is challenge, but you know that there’s another level just ‘around the corner’.
I felt like I snapped out of it today. Lunch was an apple, mandarin orange, salad and roast beef sand which. I got some packing stuff underway and made a crappy dinner of Rice cereal w/ 1 TB PB and Jam and 1 banana w/ soy milk. Not great but I had to get going.
To a ‘Quiz Night’. I don’t know if they have these in America, but it’s like a trivia night. So much fun.
I got to play with an almost 2 year old. adorable.
I dug into too much of the chocolate buttons and candy on the table, but I didn’t binge. I just have to to keep reminding myself of old patterns, learning how to overcome them and moving on.
My mantra right now: Don’t punish your todays and tomorrows for your yesterdays!
Do you ‘pyramid’ or interval your cardio?
