Struggles with motivation

26 Nov

It has been way harder than I thought it was going to be to get back into a routine! There’s always something to do… moving more things to the house, groceries, getting the right paperwork, job searching, cooking for Thanksgiving… lots and LOTS of excuses. To be fair, hubby and I are really active people. We’ve been taking the dogs on 20 minute walks at least twice a day so, that plus cleaning and moving etc. has def. kept me active but it’s just not the same. We move into the new house this week (like, tomorrow night I think) so that should help a lot once we’re settled and not living out of suit cases.

We have been cooking and eating pretty well… minus the left over pumpkin pie.Yesterday hubby had the idea to make “chips” with left over yams (well we thought they were sweet potatoes but, still good) so he just put a bit of olive oil in a skillet, sliced the yams really thin and cooked them with some pepper and garlic. It was really tasty and very quick! We had a lot of left over veggies from Thanksgiving so the theme for the week has been seasoning chicken or pork to go with said veggies… it worked really well. I am a little nervous about the new house because it has a Japanese oven which can fit about 2 fish or 2 chicken breasts. We are shipping over a George Foreman and we can use the skillet but it’ll be an adjustment for baking or roasting anything…

 

Today I did get a good leg workout in:

5 min warm-up

20 sumo squats with weight

20 squats

15 split lunges/leg

20 weighted crunches

20 reverse crunches

*3 sets

20 hip bridges

20 hip extensions

20 fire hydrants

*2 sets

Whole thing took about 35/40 min 🙂

Today’s Monday here; we’ve finished the pie, I have some emails from photographers out here, and I’m tired of skipping workouts so it’s absolutely past time to really get back at it.
