Happy Fat Tuesday

I have been trying to change more habits to become a healthier Penny. I recently wrote about changing my eating habits, again. Now after 5 weeks of removing meat and ensuring I have enough protein I have changed my workout time. Now I am only on day two of this adventured and statistics say I have 19 more days before I can consider this a habit.  With that being said I want this to be a habit to stick. Yesterday when I got home I was happy because I knew that I could relax before doing homework rather than the typical rush, to work out, rush to get dinner going and rush to start homework. It made the evenings feel 101 X’s less relaxing and make me long that much more for quiet mornings where I could quietly enjoy my coffee and bible readings.  In this it started a horrible cycle of staying up a bit longer to finish what I need and getting that extra time I felt I was entitled then trying to wake up early so I could get more quiet time in. This however did not work out well for me because I was burning the candle and both ends and my work and sanity was paying for it.

So Starting on Monday I made the decision that had been tweeted almost daily for weeks at me.  Work out in the morning, have your workout work for you. You know what I found, I love it! Yesterday I had to work at the BNP Paribas Tennis Tournament and didn’t get home until 8pm. The first thought I was  “12 hours is a long shift” (normal work day plus extra money work), on the heels of that I was practically jumping up and down that I had completed my workout. This meant I  could go home and complain about how tired I was.  Ok the complaining didn’t happen, I walked in and the first words outta Grandmas mouth was “You are tired.”

My plan is to continue this for the next 21 days and hope that it will stick, no more excuses about how I am too tired after work or becoming a lower priority than college classes. Well just a little notice to you, I will share more about my new workouts when I start them on Monday the 21st.  That is the day after my last day working in the retail tent at the tennis tourney. 

Have a wonderful evening and a blessed Wednesday.

Happy 2011! I don’t really know how I feel about this being a new year, on one hand I am disappointed there is now only one 0 in the date I had become accustomed to writing the year like this 2o1o, now it will look like this 2o11. This is not as pleasing to my eye, but I guess I will get over it.

Most of all I am just surprised that we are to July already. It seems like I just went back to work and now we are headed for the end of another school year. As thankful as I am for the end of the end of the school year it fills me with trepidation to know that I will have 2 months off without a paycheck. But really that is still 5 or so months away so I am trying to put that to the back of my mind and focus on today.

I have terribly big plans for today, the first day of January 2o11.

1. Grocery Shopping (even though Traders Joes is closed :()

2. Underwear shopping. *done*

3. Goal Board (I am very excited about this, crafts and writing my goals down Huge Win!)

4. Clean (yeah for starting the new year off right)

5. Day 6 of the Chalean extreme program. I am working towards getting the Turbo Fire, but right now I am loving using “heavy weights” (heaviest I go is 10lbs and that is a stretch right now).

That is my plan for today, maybe interspersed with some Wii play and some Netflix. Gotta love being able to watch all those cancelled programs I never got around to watching.

Well those are my plans, I hope your plans are everything you want it to be!

Happy New Year and Sparkly Cider
