Willpower, One Day at a Time

After a weekend of little sleep I could not get myself to get out of bed when the alarm went off. I hit snooze for 30 more minutes and skipped my workout this morning. Tim is going to pick up Mason today so I can go home and get my Jillian date in. Not only do I plan on doing an hour of Jillian workouts, Amanda and I have a walk planned for after dinner.

Speaking of Jillian... I started the One Week Shred yesterday and oh my goodness does she not joke around in that one. There are two workouts involved - there is a strength one you are supposed to do in the morning and a cardio one for the evening. I messed that plan up today, but oh well. I will just do both tonight with a break in between. Yesterday I did the strength when I got home at 2:30 and then I did the cardio at 7:00 after Mason was settled and dinner was done.

I was drenched by the time I was done with both workouts, but the cardio was more intense I think. It is 30 minutes of non stop movement! I was so grateful for ice cold water!

Look what I stayed away from yesterday...
Yes 8 hours of willpower! I was so proud of myself when I left work. The little steps in the right direction are what matter.

Our dinner last night was pretty delicious. It was hot out so we decided to do grilled chicken salads. That cucumber is the only one our garden produced this year and we enjoyed it.

Have you had a situation where willpower was needed this week?

  2. Way to go! I have NO willpower on the weekends....I would be in such good shape if I ate (and didn't drink) on the weekends like I do during the week, ugh! That salad looks scrumptious!

    I got my protein bars over the weekend, so excited to try them!

  3. I am doing my best to convince myself that I don't like donuts :) You are doing GREAT!

  4. I could definitely use some of your willpower!

    I haven't ever done a Jillian workout... well I got half way through one of her videos once, does that count?

  5. Oh man, that salad looks good!! I don't like doughnuts at all, so that's not an issue for me. If they were fresh baked chocolate chip cookies, there'd be a problem! Great job!

  6. Wow, good for you on the donuts. I have PROBLEMS with donuts, lol. And yummy dinner! You are doing awesome.
