I felt good this morning. I was surprised when I did wake in a carb frenzy. I actually skipped them in my breakfast and opted to save them for my post workout. I had my shake and knew I was heading to the gym so I packed a small banana and pear for the road to eat once I was done my workout there. It felt sooo good to be at the gym, I miss the energy there. It is definitely something that helps me push myself during my work outs. I do still feel insecure at the gym because I am not entirely comfortable with my fitness levels. It has definitely hurt my confidence, especially working out in a gym where A LOT of people know me BUT not every knows me well enough to know I had a baby. Not that I need to justify myself to everyone but it's just something that sits with me and I continue to work out and not let it clutter my mind too much but it does pop up. Just a human having a human moment.
My workout was great:) Today was just a dance cardio type class. This is my workout of the week that I do to simple zone out and enjoy myself. It's the type of thing I do because I love to move, the music is great and I get to sweat and be taught. I felt awesome after and was excited to carb it up after. I went and did some errands and when I get home I will likely be eating again. This time just some protein and fat to make sure I don't go to long in between meals. My muscles are definitely sore for my burpee and squat torture yesterday. Driving home I also have some great ideas for some more home fun! I kept staring at my stairs and wondering what workout I could design with them and I think I have something I am going to give a go with tomorrow! Keep an eye out, may be something worth sharing!
I am working really hard over the course of the next few weeks to keep treats minimal. In the crunch time I like to trim my plate and that is restricting myself but definitely minimizes portions when it comes to treats. I become more of
