This morning before work, I packed C's and the girls' lunches, which took some time, then headed to bed. So when I woke up this afternoon, I was dragging. I was determined not to skip my workout, but I was running out of time. The older girls get home on the bus at 3:20 and it was already after 2:30. I HATE being walked in on during a workout - or watched by the kids. Then I remember both of them were going home with their boyfriends because of parties or volunteer stuff. So, I wouldn't be interrupted. So, I relaxed, took my time and started the workout. Today is strength training. I was 20 minutes into the workout, when Rhiannon and her best friend Moneesha came through the front door. There I was in my sports bra, shorts, hair a mess, and probably unshaved armpits, holding a resistance band over my head in the middle of a military press I think it was.. or one of those high ones. I paused it and went to my room. I was embarrassed. Not only for how I looked, but how the house looks. It's a freaking mess right now. So, it ruined my whole groove. Tonight, I am going to do the workout over again with Christopher since he's doing his after work. Since we only have one resistance band, I'm going to head to the store a little early and get some weights. That way we can do the strength training at the same time.
Tonight's dinner/my lunch is chicken stir fry from
the power 90 booklet. It's not really much of a recipe, just cook the
chicken in a little oil, add the veggies and a little soy sauce and
serve with brown rice. What struck me though is how much better stir fry
is with fresh veggies. I used to only use frozen veggies in my stirfry
and it was not the greatest food to eat.. this was AMAZING! Fresh is
Update: I got two 5lb dumb bells and worked out with Christopher after he got off work. It was actually a lot of fun to work out with him. Working out in front of people is an issue I am going to have to deal with. This summer I'll have my 3 kids plus all their friends running in and out of the house all day, every day.
