It is early Saturday morning. My body is so confused. It knows today is THE day where I am supposed to sleep in and lounge around the house in my pajamas for the majority of the day. Instead, I’m up eating breakfast (oatmeal w/ blueberries incase you were wondering).
I have a big day of……. uh. Well, I’m going to Clermont to hang out w/ the BFFer and then tonight we are having a Christmas Party in July for her birthday! Oh yah! It should be fun! I’m bringing my best Christmas sweater, and a cute little Christmas shirt for the festivities.
I didn’t get a work out done on Friday. I was annoyingly stressed & frustrated on Friday, and when I got home working out was the last thing I wanted to do. I know some people like to work out when they are stressed, but when I’m stressed I just want to chill out on the couch or in bed.
This morning I woke up bright and early to get Chris’ lunch ready, and instead of going back to bed I changed into some running shorts/sports bra and turned on a Bob Harper work out DVD. I did a weights work out for 20 minutes w/ Bob. I have a predicament: I have 5lb weights & 8lb weights. 5lb feels to easy, and 8lb feels to hard, unfortunately there is no weight in between, is there? I haven’t seen one. Well, 5lbs feels easy on some of the moves, and hard on other. I guess I should stick w/ the 5lbs for a while until I build up my strength. I’ve learned that my upper body strength decreases SUPER QUICK if I don’t work on it regularly. bummer.
The other thing I learned this morning: my knees are that of a 80 year old woman. Lunges were not my friend this morning, at all. They were all squeaky & achy feeling. It sucked.
I know I should started a daily regimen of glucosamine chondrotin but that freakin’ pill is GIGANTIC.. gigantic I said. ick But, I’ve heard from quite a few people that it helped with their knees. Do you take glucosamine? Have you seen/felt a difference??
In other more exciting news: I
stole inherited a Vitamix on Thursday night. After dinner I was attempting to make a smoothie in our lame-o blender. The bananas were frozen and the blender wasn’t blending. It was just making noise. My Dad says, “ I have a blender downstairs, that thing was like $400”
me: “excuuuuuse me, come again?”
me: “VITAMIX? YOU HAVE A VITAMIX DOWNSTAIRS???”
:::runs towards the door, slings it open, slams it shut and runs down the stairs to kidnap the vitamix:::
omgeeezy. That baby blends like a dream.
What should she be named?
Have a great weekend! I’m off to get ready to go!!
