I worked out to Richard Simmons today; sweating to the oldies 2! I have his whole collection and this was the first time I did this particular workout video. It’s about 80 minutes. I quit about half way in. It’s hard to get into it when I start out with the wrong attitude but I do feel a little bit better from the little bit that I did. I am hoping tomorrow will be better and I will complete the whole thing. It is going to be a long winter. I could really use some spring/summer! Even though I have weights/weight bench and a treadmill in my basement; that routine can get pretty old. I hope to spice it up and do different Richard Simmons videos/basement work outs. I don’t see myself bundling up to go walk in the snow and I do not do any winter activities. Sometimes I wonder why I live here! I like it to snow only on Christmas otherwise it can go to the North Pole for the rest of the year!!!!!
I got up this morning and had a cup of coffee and made 2 scrambled eggs with wheat toast. I am going to go grocery shopping this Saturday. My kitchen is looking pretty bare! Right now I am drinking green tea with lemon juice. I got a bottle of the concentrated lemon juice. I know it’s not as good as using a fresh squeezed lemon but lemons aren’t cheap especially if you are going to use them everyday. I am hoping to get back into the swing of using lemon juice. I plan on cutting back coffee again and drinking green tea with lemon first thing in the morning like I used to. I have read numerous pros and cons online about the benefits of using real lemon juice vs. concentrate and from what I got it has the same effect but you lose certain nutrients, etc. I would like fresh but I had to compromise $$$. My Mom brought over some broccoli, an onion and thin breakfast steaks so I will be having a stir fry for dinner. I missed lunch today and have not snacked on anything. I still have been taking my apple cider vinegar tablets about twice a day.
Day #2 with no facebook is going pretty well. My shakes and jitters ended late last night, LOL JK. It is amazing on how you can get sucked in to those kinds of things! I feel so much better without it. Some will understand while others wont but I just wasted way too much time on it.
Until tomorrow :-)
