No squirty cheese for me please!

Blah* I don't miss this sedentary lifestyle one bit!!! 

The doctor told me 2 weeks ago to take it easy on my foot and I have gotten plain old LAZY since then. It was nice for a little bit..I was enjoying the extra time in bed, the extra time playing with my daughter, the extra time with my honey. All things which are very enjoyable but once I stopped working out, I started not holding myself AS accountable for my eating and between those two components - I AM TIRED!!!!!! 

I could not get out of bed this morning, which got me to thinking of how I was before I started this journey. I was always tired and wanting to lay in bed.. even before I became a mommy. I wanted to sleep until noon every day and never had energy. After I started this journey and started working out all the time, everyone always asked me "Where do you find the energy to do all that you do??!" The answer??? :: From eating right and working out!! 

So needless to say,  I am done with this two week hiatus! This is not how I want to live! I don't want to be tired and mopey because I want to lay in bed. I don't enjoy this lifestyle and I don't plan to ever go back to it!!!  If I put it on here then I will do it! I have come too, too far now to be getting lazy!! I won't go to bed tonight without getting in a workout of some sort. I PROMISE!


I saw something on TV yesterday saying that the fat inside of a sedentary person looks like squirty cheese.

Whereas the fat inside of an athlete looks like oil

I'll take the OIL please!!


Quick update on my foot:

I went to the orthopedic yesterday planning to get my cast and he said that he understood before that I was in more pain that I actually am and since he realizes now that I'm not in so much pain that the bone he is seeing on the x-ray may actually be what's called an accessory navicular bone that I have always had and the joint between the bones just got inflamed or irritated. 2/3 of people who have this bone, have it on both feet but 1/3 only have it on one foot. I am hoping I'm in that 1/3 of people! So I need a bone scan to find out...HOWEVER...yes there's always a catch... I still breastfeed my daughter and after my bone scan I can't breastfeed for 48 hours. Since I don't pump and I am in the process of weaning anyway, I need to get her off the breast before I can get my bone scan. lol so that is kind of on hold. IN THE MEAN TIME, I just have to do things that don't hurt my foot, says the doctor. Which means no plyometrics. No running. etc. Basically, no high impact. 

Which leaves out my favorite workout of all time - Turbo Fire. But I'm gonna try it on low impact and see how that goes. The doctor basically said as long as it doesn't make my foot hurt right now I can do it. So I plan to bike ride and so on until I get it situated! Until then, just praying that it's really not a fracture! I'm thinking if I have been walking on it for two months that it's most likely NOT a fracture!

Yeah, the worst feeling is when you WANT to workout and something you can't control is stopping you! But even low impact workouts should get your energy back up a bit! That cheese/oil thing is pretty gross...an image that certainly makes me want to work out harder than normal today!

I am totally the same way....when I don't eat right, or get a little exercise in I am tired all the time and I don't want to do anything.....lord knows how I have made it this long with all this extra fat.

I want to be "extra virgin olive oil" on the inside.....lol
