The problem is that really great clothes just don't look the same when you have a muffin top. This is what motivates me. Fashion. Shallow? I don't really care.
I have been a very good girl. I haven't missed a workout. I did have some sweets yesterday but they were of the most delectable type that are worth every calorie. Besides, this is a lifestyle change for me, not a diet. And my lifestyle will always include delectables.
When the Boy was two I ran a marathon. Here's the problem with running marathons (other than blood in your pee and your toenails falling off): After the marathon you are used to eating what ever you like. So you eat all this stuff but you aren't training any more so you don't burn off the calories. It really sucks.
Thus the muffin top.
But I do have good news. I have had two, count them, two days where I felt like my old self again. My energy was back and I felt really good. It's not a lot, but it gives me hope that the good doctor might be worth his weight in beans.
So I'm starting to feel good and bionic and all. But I am in desperate need of some good tuneage. This is where you come in.
What songs do you have on your workout playlist? Don't be shy. I'm am an admitted music snob, except for workout music. Bring on the 80's hairbands, show tunes, teeny bopper jive, rap, whatever. Really.
