Trading Places: Stupid Scale!!! (Wednesday, August 5th, 2009)

Tuesday: The good news: I was mobile the morning after bootcamp… The bad news: My legs still felt like tree trunks. So, I took the day off from cardio and for whatever reason, all I did in my free time was sleep… I’m sleeping amazingly well every night, but every time I sat down, I was out cold for at least 30 minutes.  Again, I have no idea why.  And I had no trouble sleeping last night either.

          Wednesday:  Well, I didn’t get measurements, but the weight still will not change.  We’re baffled, simply baffled.  I know I’m leaner, and people say I look leaner but that stupid @#$%#$ scale says “You may be leaner but you still haven’t lost any ‘weight’ hahaha”.  ANYHOO, I did get some relief out of my session.  I have a week off of cardio; no cardio until next Wednesday; and I’m ok with that.  I’ve done so much running around lately, that I will be ok without having to look at a piece of cardio equipment for 7 days.  And 2 (oh this one is a good one!!!) I get to eat PIZZA this weekend… Oh yes, hello “Kimberly special” from Papa Johns… I haven’t had pizza in a MONTH.  That’s like dog years to me, really; I never go that long without eating pizza!  I would say that knowing that, I would be really, really good on my diet this week; but ya know, I’m really, really good on my diet every flipping week.  At least this weekend will be quite rewarding!  With this good news, I tried to push myself as hard as I could during the workout.  I started feeling fatigue on a few exercises so I knew I was giving it all I had. EXCEPT, there is this one exercise Pirtle makes me do that I feel absolutely ridiculous doing.  I feel like a rabbit; a jacked up rabbit.  I can’t give it 100% when I feel 100% clumsy.  I’m working on that one.  But I did get my butt kicked yet again by Matt, congrats to you for another defeat.

          As for my diet, Pirtle wrote for me to eat a rice cake with peanut butter for post workout… My first reaction to him was that there was no way in hell I was eating a rice cake… Well, I gave in last week, and with peanut butter on it, honestly, not too bad.  I’m not promising that is just tastes good b/c I’m starving when I eat it, or if it really is tasty.  Let me know your all’s opinion on that one.

          Workouts are done for the week; however, with half of my clients gone for the next 10 days, I am sure I will be using my free time being active somehow.  Hopefully the weather will cooperate.  Since I don’t have any cardio/training left this week, I may not return again until Monday (unless I’m really sore tomorrow and I want to vent… J  )

Until Next Time,
