Daily Doubles

Ah, it was like being back in high school except this wasn't nearly as hard and I wasn't wearing a tiny pair of spandex (volleyball, in case you were wondering!) Since I REALLY can't stop eating, my new solution is to workout a lot! Ok, I am trying to get the eating under control, but for lunch and dinner yesterday I had cookies, not great! Anyways, in the morning I headed to the gym before Brady's therapy to try out the 30 minute women's only circuit. I loved it! No time to get bored, works out everything, and NO MEN! I used to circuits in college and always enjoyed them, so I think it will be good to incorporate them back into my life. At the speeds I am walking, SLOW, I just won't be able to get the rest of me back into shape while rehabbing the knee, so I think this is perfect. The plan is to circuit on Mon and Wed. The only bummer to the workout was when I got called to daycare while butt naked in the shower! I opted to put on clothes first and found poor Riley had been screaming for a while. I guess poor them, too! It retroactively made my workout stressful.

The next workout I was not looking forward to as much. It is hard to multitask while working out (and while driving, too) and there are just so many things I want to be getting done right now. With the new business (my sister and I are making crafts!) my day is packed with sanding, painting, and mod podging and I love it. I am having a hard time taking a break to do anything else. It has even gotten to where I reward myself with crafting after cleaning the house to make sure it gets cleaned! So, the gym last night was lonely (Coach is now doing Crossfit on pool nights) and I wanted to be somewhere else. I couldn't just let myself relax and enjoy the time alone and sweating. Anybody else have this problem? But I managed a decent 30 min on the elliptical, and slow 30 on the treadmill, and then a few minutes of Angry Birds on the bike while I waited for Jesse to be done. I think you know you are working to your max if you can also play games on your phone! I may have also taken some photos!

It's my daily double grr face!

Today, I am sore (which I LOVE) and looking forward to a day at home. Many more workouts to come this week. I'm going to try a home circuit I found on Pinterest today, I'll let ya know how it goes!

I would much rather workout more than give up cookies. That's all! :)
