So today I went to Starbucks at lunch to caffeine up. And I saw the most glorious thing. I don't know how I did not know about this...especially since everyone I mention it to already knew. Depeche Mode had a new cd come out last week. HOLLA! Seriously, this is awesome. They are one of my all-time favorites. I have a playlist full of their music on my ipod and I listen to it at least once or twice a week at work.
How can I use this to my benefit? Incentive! Normally I would use it as a workout incentive, but now it's my study incentive. YEAH! If I can get to my scheduled chapter by this Sunday I can get it.
This morning was breakfast club. It was bagels. I needed that. Last night's workout was intense. I was hungry. I got an everything bagel with lowfat cream cheese. YUM. It was a special Everything bagel. It had everything on the top and bottom (good thing I carry mouthwash with me). It was yummy. It's hard though. I know it's okay in a while, but whenever I have one I want another.
This week I am back to my weights workouts. I had cut back on them during training time for fear of injuring my knee. Well time to get back to it. I need to tone up my arms and legs. I noticed the arms in my dress on Easter and I felt it on my thighs the other night.
I wore shorts to the gym for my run and Dang it! There was chub rub. I wanted to cry.
So I'm starting to work with my new haircut. Sometimes it looks really cute. Other times I think it looks like I am wearing a wig. It is so short that it doesn't move. And yet I needed to go out and buy hair products so that I can style it. I don't like it to feel crunchy though. I miss my soft hair.
I always think short short hair looks cute on other people. So why am I finding this so difficult? I feel like a boy. If I put a baseball cap on you can't tell I'm a girl..unless you look at my boobs. I am constantly hearing that it looks cute, but until I feel it won't matter. I hate that. Why can't I take what others tell me as true?
This Friday we are having pizza for lunch at work. I was invited to join and I have 3 choices:
2-say yes, but don't eat any
3-say yes and make it my cheat day
2? Well that's just not an option. I do not have the will power not to eat any pizza when I can smell it.
1? I could, but I'm trying to bond with the new group that I sit with.
That leaves 3. 2 Slices at max. That's all I'm going to have. I can't have anymore. I am running that night and I don't want to feel sick.
So I mentioned that we are getting back to weights. I was still doing upper body sporadically during my training, but last night was my first night on legs in about 2 months. Made it a little difficult to move today. For the record, a long study night is never a good idea the night after a heavy legs night. Sitting crossed legged is painful. Standing up is horrible.
My Vegetarian Weekdays plan is on hold. I had a few setbacks at Subway, but I plan on getting back to it next week.
I can't remember if I mentioned it or not, but Gym Buddy Lisa is on week 4 of a Vegan lifestyle. So proud of her. Her sister started it and saw an immediate change in her diabetes numbers. If I didn't have an addiction to cheese I would be right there with her. I am hoping to try it for a week a least sometime soon.
My birthday weekend is taking shape. I am excited that girls weekend is not incorporating a Breast Cancer 5K.
