Motivation Station

So here I sit, in my workout clothes...trying to get psyched for a workout. I had to work this morning and I just did some house chores that were getting on my nerves. And NOW ive got to get down to business...getting a workout in! I've had my little cup o' coffee and im debating on WHAT workout to do?

I did a full body weight workout on Wednesday and Monday was a circuit so that means today will be a split workout ; Meaning 30mins of cardio followed by 30+ mins of weights. And since my legs are still talking to me, I will do upper body today. :)

This is the hard part in losing weight. Getting the motivation to stay on plan. Right now I would love to put on my pj's and veg out in front of the tv but no-can-do. I've got my last twenty to lose...

My first weigh in is Monday morning...wish me luck. Even if I don't lose any weight I know I did my best this week and thats all that matters...results will come :)

Day #4 Rest

Todays a rest day, im pooped. I did Cathe's Muscle Max timesaver premix yesterday and mygoodness my legs are screaming this morning. I matched her weight on every exercise except the sumo squat, she used 25lbs and I used a 20.

Yesterdays calories were 1825, about 125 calories over my limit so Ive really got to be careful today. At least I got in a good workout to help balance it all out :)

Stop ya Bitching...

Yesterday I found myself sucked into a conversation with co-employee's about the company we work for. It was so easy to start bitching about all the problems with it. The crappy pay, the crazy hours, working weekends & holidays, favoritism shown by the managers, the fact that some managers get away with so much and nothing is done about it.

Why can't we just be happy to have a job? Seriously, there are at least 15 people standing in line - waiting - for us to quit.

And why the hell do we care what other people are doing, what other peoples pay is?

My dad told me something a long time ago and its starting to sink in now. "He use to say, go to work then come home...don't bring work home with you and don't bring home to work." LOL, I use to scratch my head with that advice, but now I understand :)

From now on im going to stop and think before I walk up to people and start getting into these negative conversations. These people seem to be unhappy with something other then their least thats what I believe.

For the most part, im happy with my job and my life! And thats that!

Ive got another blog I've been working on for about 3days now. Its a blog about my last twenty.
This blog seems to have come my outlet in life, lol

I will reveal it when I lose my first lb, hopefully this Monday when I weigh again. Im just counting calories and working out 4/5 days a week :) Today is day #3.
