I have been toying with the idea of starting my own journal - wanting a place where I can write about how I FEEL about my workouts, my diet, my body and how it all relates to the rest of my life. So I am doing it! I work out alone - at home, mostly - and I feel like I miss being able to bouce thought and ideas off of other people. I've always secretly wanted a training partner, but have never found the right situation. So my journal will be my partner - and I hope that people will feel welcome to pop in and comment/share.
At this point I am not going to post specifics about my workouts (amount of weights/routine, etc) nor specifics about my diet. I want to focus on my feelings about both - not the numbers. This may change, who knows?
Some random facts about me:
Married: Gratefully, happily, yes.
Children: 2. Although they have 4 legs, are covered in fur, and use a litter box, my husband and I love them very much. . P.S. I hate kids.
Occupation: Full-time student. Part-time pastry chef. Making a career change...
Favorite food: Oatmeal. Always has been, every since childhood.
Favorite color: Lavender
Favorite smell: Bleach
Favorite place to be: My bed.
Second favorite place to be: The shower.
I had high hopes for today's workout - cardio only. Am enjoying the DOMS from Leg Day yesterday (my favorite) and I like the sensation of really being able to feel the muscles do their work. But *someone*, consciously, willingly, underate yesterday. Got scared by what she had been eating the days prior, and decided to "cut back a little". On Leg Day. Idiot...
Needless to say, I bonked during today's workout: shakey, cold sweat, heart pounding...had to purchase a sugar-y drink from the vending machine just so that I wouldn't feel like I would faint. I have not felt like that in a while. Used to feel that way all the time.
Message: Eat poorly =Work-out poorly.
I rely on my work-outs to allow me to feel good about myself. Makes me feel in control of my life. It gets me intro trouble sometimes. A bad workout can create a bad mood.
Will try again tomorrow. It's a work day. Weight work-out at home in the afternoon.
More another time.
