My name is Nicole, *sigh...and I'm a slacker/snacker

OK, so I am the absolute worst!! I have slacked on on this blog so bad that this morning when I went to log in, I had forgotten my user name =( And it's not just the blog, I have been slacking in several areas of my life over the past 2 weeks. I hadn't completely fallen off the healthy living wagon, but I was holding on for dear life. I have definitely given less than admirable efforts a work as well. I don't know, I guess I got completely side tracked from life. But fear not, I'm back. Let's review the lessons that I have learned:

#1: 5 am workouts are a terrible idea! Well, its just not good for me to have them 2 or three mornings in a row. I haven't completely given up on them, but I think I'm just going to do them once or maybe twice a week. It is pure hell trying to get out of the bed that early.

#2: I have step my workouts up to 5 days a week. Plain & simple. 4 days just won't cut it for me at this stage in the game.

#3: You don't get to "cheat" on your diet unless you've actually put forth a monumental amount of effort. I'm surely not starving myself, but I don't think I should be allowed to have fried shrimp & hush puppies just because I went to the gym 3 days in a row.

#4: I'm back to hating yogurt.....what can I say, I tried.

#5: a chronic snacker such as myself must keep healthy snacks on deck at all times...and I must keep a variety, so I don't get bored. Right now I'm liking muti-grain wheat thins, triscuits, laughing cow wedges, mini bags of pop corn and fruit salads..... I LOVE SNACKS!

#6: Some people don't have gym etiquette! So the BF and I were in the gym last week wrapping up our workout with an ab session. There were two girls near us on mats doing a similar workout. They were cute, seemed to be normal....people that I would assume have some home training. Well, after about 2 reps of "6-inches" and 20 crunches, I started to get a whiff of an extremely foul odor. I looked at the BF with disgust. "Gross! my mouth was open!....I'm struggling to breathe & here you are polluting the little bit of air that I can inhale!!!" He responds with a simple "It wasn't me...what are you talking about?" Shortly after finishing that statement, he got a sudden whiff as well. It was one of those cute girls! Not sure which one, but I'm thinking "how is the other one not passed out dead on the mat?" Either way, one of them needs to bypass the crunches and go see a colon hydro therapist. A dirty colon is probably the culprit for that tummy bulge. Needless to say, we cut the ab workout short that day.

To make matters worse, I tried on a pair of pants yesterday that have been falling off of me for more than a year now. I hadn't put them on in a few months. They actually fit his time!!!! I wanted cry. But instead, I pushed myself extra hard in the gym that evening. I have stepped my level of dedication & seriousness up about 5 notches. I'll be posting another recipe and pics soon. Until then....wish me well. Oh, and I'll keep you all updated on those pants in the future.
