A Gift to Myself

Today’s 44 (kind-of weird to type that after so many days at 43!) was all about the core plus a little bonus hip flexor work!  I used my core ball – 

Core balland did a scissors move.  The ball was under my hips to make the move a little more challenging (mostly because I kept rolling around!!).

I also taught Garage Boot Camp today.  I told the ladies last week that today would be a circuit and that way if I wasn’t ready to work out I could kind-of take it easy.  Well, we did the Circuit Boot Camp as planned but it is really hard for me to stand around when there is a workout opportunity so I did the workout, too!  

This workout has 18 stations and the first round we did 1 minute of work with 10 seconds to switch.  The 2nd round we dropped down to 40 seconds (mostly because of time constraints!).  I’m happy that I did it but I can tell that my body is tired and worn down – it wasn’t nearly as fun as most workouts are.

But, the best part of the gift – it was completely guilt free!!!

Screen shot 2013-09-17 at 7.11.14 AMIt is rare for me to let myself have a whole day to just sit/lay around with my laptop and reality TV and not feel guilty but yesterday I did it with no problem and loved every single second of it!!!

Today there is a small part of me that is feeling bad because of all the things that I need to do but I’m telling myself that it was a gift to be enjoyed and not regretted so that is what I’m going to do!!!


Do you ever give yourself the gift of TIME to do whatever you want GUILT-FREE?


Thank you all for the kind words on the 44 miles and the birthday wishes – it really was a great day!!

Happy Tuesday!
