Or, really, nothing of value. Its hard to count the little things- like taking the stairs instead of the escalator at the mall, or choosing to do squats to pick up boxes at work instead of just bending at the knee.
And Fitocracy is hard to explain this to, especially when so many of the Playgrounders in the Fit in the Playground group are doing routine workouts, with hardcore lifting and shit, and I’m like “Well, I swam and did 100 crunches, aren’t I awesome?!”
I need to make this effort more routinely, but my days are so planned to a T that it’s hard to say “Okay, well, I’ll swim everyday at this time for this long and do these many crunches and obliques”. Some days I can wake up early enough to put it in before, but not always.
I WISH I liked running. I wish that I didn’t feel like putting a shotgun between my teeth every time I tried, and I wish I could find my iPod so that I could atleast have long walks that were enjoyable.
I wish I had some physical activity that I really liked doing, and, in this way, I’m really bummed Crystal and I aren’t friends anymore, because we were going to pick up tennis.
I wish my stepmother hadn’t taken the Wii, because I LOVED Wiifitness, and I would LOVE to have the Zumba game for the Wii, because when I played it, I LOVED it, despite getting my ass kicked.
Hell, I wish I watched TV more often, because, when I was a couch potato in highschool, I atleast did situps and pushups during every commercial break (this was all due to the encouragement of my JROTC Sergeant, though- the man was a genius at motivation)
So, I didn’t do anything after Sunday, because, lol, bleeding from my vagina.
Okay, that isn’t a good excuse at all. I was bummed that I couldn’t swim, but, everyday, I planned on walking, and, everyday, I blew it off.
I need to be better at self control.
SPEAKING OF WHICH.
FUCKING CAKE, MAN.
My pharmacist brought in two cakes for her kid’s birthdays, the store manager retired so we had another cake, my sister has a huge cake leftover from her graduation, and its all just sitting around, taunting me. I broke down and had a small piece of the retirement cake- it was just so pretty =(
I swam for half an hour, in a cold, cold pool while it was 72 degrees outside.
I swam until my legs couldn’t take it anymore, and then I got out of the pool, did 50 crunches, and got back into the pool (though I didn’t do laps after that, just treaded water)
I feel a little shaky- but, then, I haven’t worked out or been really healthy in a long, long time. I’m thinking of taking a walk later tonight, just to keep it up, and maybe digging my bicycle up and doing some of the trails later this week. Oklahoma has really, really good bike trails…I’ve just never really used them.
Also, I joined Fitocracy!
I probs should have thought about the wedding and graduation party today, when deciding to work on mah fitness yesterday.
But tomorrow! Tomorrow, I plan on walking and doing situps and lifting a few light-weight training dumbbells!
Healthy eating! I’ve already over the past few months cut out most sweets and replaced them with low-fat sharp cheddar cheese (protein) or fruits/veggies, but I’ve gotta pay more attention to actual meals.
I’ve got lots of all the parts of a healthy life-style started. I just need to kick it into gear and really get somewhere with it.
Also! Monica, my dad’s friend’s wife, who is super fit and healthy, suggested sublingual b-12 tablets, which supposedly kick-start metabolism. I’ll have to look into that…
