Les Mills Pump Workout: Hard Core Abs & Flow
Happy Birthday to my Mom!
I am going to bed earlier and earlier each night, which is always a good thing. When I woke up, I still felt a bit tired but not as bad as the the day before. I spent my day doing homework and other work from my laptop. I have been putting a dollar in a jar for every workout I complete and everyone pound that I lose since I started Les Mills Pump. I have been wanting to buy a heart rate monitor and I more than enough money in the jar to finally buy one. I found a great deal on eBay for an unopened Polar FT7 heart rate monitor. I should arrive by October 18th at the latest. I can’t wait to start using it in my workouts!
I took a break with a workout to Hard Core Abs and Flow. It was kind of a recovery day I guess. I went to finally pick up my Mom’s Birthday present after all of that. My Dad and I split her present…a Keurig brewing system. She has been wanting one and it’s the least I can do after all that she has done for me. I want to make my Mom as happy as I can. It’s taken me a long time to finally appreciate the ones that love you the most. Life is too short so spend time with the ones who treat you right and tell them how much you love them. You never know what tomorrow brings.
We went out for dinner to a restaurant of her choice. It was a Chinese/Japanese buffet of course. At the price for each person, it was amazing to see the very small selection of healthy choices they had. Even though my Mom says differently, I think I ate so bad. She said I didn’t eat as much compared to the way I used to eat. Either way, I feel extremely guilty right now. I don’t like this feeling. What is also upsetting to me is how restaurants can keep serving bad foods and people keep eating it up. There is still no excuse for me eating like crap. My self discipline with food is one major area I have trouble in. It’s as if I have no choice when it comes to going to a restaurant with barely any healthy options. I do though. It’s a learning experience each time I eat like this. I have to remember that it took me YEARS to get where I am and it is a challenge to get to my goal weight. Each time I fail, it does not mean I am giving up. It is just a small bump in the road. I have to work harder. Tomorrow is a new day.
KIA KAHA…BE STRONG!
