Only 30 more minutes until LOST! I better hurry :)
We had BodyPump on the schedule for today, so I knew I needed an afternoon snack. I had some fat free plain yogurt with a few chopped strawberries and some TJ’s Fruit and Nut Medley cereal (or something like that – I can never remember the right name!)
I don’t know what was different about BodyPump, but it just about killed me! My legs were shaking during the squats and lunges, my arms were shaking with everything (chest, triceps, biceps) and the ab track was killer tonight – good thing it’s giving me some good muscles :) I can’t wait to get my heart rate monitor so I can see how many calories I actually burn in that class. Sweat dripping down elbows? I think that means I’m working pretty hard.
I couldn’t decide about dinner plans once we got home. The meal I was going to make would have taken a bit longer than I wanted to spend cooking, so I changed my mind (change of mind #1).
I roasted some asparagus, cooked up some lean ham steaks, and made some couscous with broth and parsley.
Easy, quick, and makes me think of Spring.
So what else is a change of mind? Well, it’s not one I’ve had but one I want to have.
I constantly compare myself to other girls. Sometimes I don’t even realize I’m doing it, but I caught myself during BodyPump thinking “I wish I looked like that girl”. I was feeling good and feeling strong until I started thinking things like that, and it just totally deflates my spirit. I don’t know how or when I started doing that, but I know it’s not healthy. I know that I was made the way I am for a reason, and I am happy with myself most of the time. I don’t know to keep myself from comparing myself so much, but I would like to start trying to get rid of that bad habit.
Any tips? Do you compare yourself to other people? If thoughts like that come up, what do you say to yourself or do to turn that thinking off?
I know…you’re probably thinking “why is she asking such a deep question when LOST is about to come on?” :)
