I skipped out on quiz last night so I could go to the grocery store and pick up some canned pumpkin, acorn & spaghetti squash, all of which I've been craving like mad lately. Also wanted to try on my new clothes from Old Navy that got delivered. I love size Medium. Both average and awesome.


Oh man. I was soooo not motivated at all this morning. As I changed into my workout clothes, all I could think about was how incredibly sore my ass muscles were from squatting with the barbell yesterday. For about 2 seconds, I contemplated not going to the gym at all, but I was already up, so I finished getting ready and pushed through.

When I got to my machine, I didn't feel like running or incline training OR much of anything, so I had to talk myself into a compromise. I decided I would just do 5 minute intervals (instead of the usual 10-15) and I would burn no more than 500 calories. I was still essentially doing a tough workout, but I knew that shorter intervals and less machines meant the time would go by faster and it did.

Today's routine:
-25 min. running/incline training (alternated 5 min. intervals)
-15 min. elliptical

I forgot my lifting gloves, so rowing was out and there was no way I was going to tackle the stair master, thanks to my aforementioned sore ass. I just wanted to keep things relatively easy this morning. I survived, but I still could totally go home and fall asleep right now.

Still planning on doing Biggest Loser Boot Camp tomorrow.
