Hey there! How are y’alls Friday afternoons turning out? Some of you guys are already done for the week and off work…lucky! 🙂
Mid-morning snack was a piece of the Coconut Pecan Cake I made for the office. I tried to make sure I got a smaller piece:
It was really good…I left the pecan halves whole because I was too lazy to chop them, and I used 1/4 cup of light sour cream and 1.5 cups of nonfat milk instead of buttermilk, and I think it turned out great! Lunch was the last of the leftover pasta from the other night with a Boca mushroom patty chopped up and mixed in. The pasta was starting to get soggy, but I ate it anyway. The mushroom patty covers a multitude of food sins 🙂
Then began the dragging of the afternoon. Our company is really slow on Friday afternoons, but I ended up not taking a lunch for a couple of reasons, which meant no walk again. Sad. I did stop at Starbucks and grab a bag of dried cherries and a grande coffee (unpictured) to help the day go faster!
So, I gotta be honest, I’m trying really hard to not be annoyed/angry/fat-talking at myself for not working out yet today. I took yesterday off because I was stressed and it was blizzard-snowing, and now I’m trying to get the motivation to do 30-day Shred at home. I really want to do all 3 workouts together (I can at least do the easier versions of all the moves together). It’s just going to mean me getting over the “I finally made it home on a Friday” slump and just DO it. I’ve enlisted the help of Nate to force me to get it done! Maybe I’ll have him take a picture of me gross and sweaty after it’s done to prove to you guys (I guess I’m considering y’all my support group :)) that I actually got it done?
Do you ever feel like a gross blob when you don’t work out at your designated time? Do you find yourself being really hard on yourself because of it? Do you have anything that you do to pump yourself up and do the workout that you deserve to do? I’m trying to get Nate to force me to do it, I know I’ll be thanking him later!
I hope you guys have a fabulous weekend! I’m getting my hair done by my friend Rebecca (she’s a rock star!!!) and hopefully cleaning the office! Any ideas what I should do with my hair (Teri, I think this might be your field ;))
