I let some negative thoughts creep into my head yesterday. It sucked, it really did. I didn't eat the whole day save for 2 scrambled eggs and a pear around 11:30 yesterday morning. I didn't get back from Westchester until almost 7. I was famished and I had Chinese. Not the best choice, not my best moment. It wasn't even good, it was just something to ingest so I wouldn't pass out from not eating anything. Ugh. I'm paying for it now. The scale is up. Full disclosure.
So I'm taking the power back. I am pushing myself. Right on to a new NSV.
Today, I held my first ever 2 minute plank. Two minutes, 3 seconds, to be exact. Let me tell you guys, I wanted to call it quits after about 45 seconds. My body was shaking, but I kept pushing.
It's not ok that I caved in to old, awful habits. It really isn't. We all know that. Otherwise, we wouldn't feel so terrible about it afterwards, right. We know it's wrong. I know it's wrong. And nothing good can ever come from reverting back to that.
But I also know that it's up to me - and me alone - to snap out of it STAT. Hence me pushing the time on that plank.
And I needed to bring it with my workout tonight. I completed a total of 45 minutes on the inclined treadmill, running 15 minutes of it. I felt something in my right knee, otherwise I would've gone longer. Then I fished out a Firm DVD that I hadn't done in forever - Calorie Explosion with Alison Davis. This DVD brings the intensity. It is no joke. I burned 828 calories. Sweated my ass off.
Better, solid day. Tracked everything, stayed with my points, and got in all the requirements.
I am taking the power back. No other way.
