Sometimes we Indulge – Sometimes we Overindulge – Looking for Moderation

Today’s 43 was a play on one that Nellie featured for one of her Weekly Wednesday workouts.  She showed a split squat with a side kick this past week.  I don’t have my step here but we have stairs!!!

I stood on the 2nd step and did a squat then pushed up into a side leg raise.  Not gonna lie, about 15 in I started wishing that I had used the bottom step – oh, well gotta make up for yesterday!!!

Even though I only did 1 side for the demo, you know I had to do 43 with the other leg – I just didn’t want to film my backside!!!  This move was great for burning out my quads and my hips!!!

After that I headed outside to take advantage of the beauty all around me!!  I ran 4 miles (8:37 pace) and walked an easy 1/4 mile cool down.  It wasn’t too hot yet (around 80) but it was muggy – I was dripping with in the first 5 minutes!!!

I’m one of those people who doesn’t ever completely deny myself things.  If I want a piece of candy,Screen shot 2013-07-21 at 8.23.15 PMI usually go ahead and have it.

When I go shopping, I might come home with 

new workout clothes
new workout clothes


new boots!
new boots!

Sometimes I even buy stuff that we really need!!  (Pretty much I love to shop!!)

And, we all know that I enjoy an evening 


So, I don’t really have a problem with indulging in things!  However, I know my personality and I also know that if I’m not careful I can easily overindulge.

I may have consumed more than 1 candy bar in a setting before.  I might have shopped all day and bought a ton of stuff that we don’t really need.  And, on very rare occasions, I might have more cocktails than I should.  

Each time that I overindulge, whether it is with food, shopping, cocktails, sometimes even  with working out, I remember why it is so important to practice moderation in all things. I don’t beat myself up, I just remind myself – Screen shot 2013-07-21 at 8.33.14 PMI try to practice moderation on a daily basis.  Sometimes I overdo certain things (like feeling the need to run 5 hours!!!) but overall I try to live a life of moderation in all things!!!

Do you ever overindulge?  Do you beat yourself up or just remind yourself of why moderation is the key?

  This week I plan to indulge (possibly over-indulge) in the beach and sleeping (very rare for me to not get up early anymore but I’m going to try and catch up)!!

Happy Monday!!!  I’m off to the beach!!
