Yesterday was the last day of Summer camp for my kids so I took advantage and met a good looking guy for a lunch date!
Don’t worry, it was just my handsome husband!!
We don’t normally get the chance to meet for lunch due to his busy schedule and the fact that he works about 40 minutes away from our house. Yesterday however, he had a little downtime and was able to meet me in the middle so it worked out well.
When trying to decide where to go, there was little hesitation or indecisiveness as we both knew what we wanted. On our last lunch date we enjoyed the food so much that we decided to go for a repeat!
I ordered a trio plate of bulgur and berries, a house wedge and a grilled portabella. It was really good but I have to say, I preferred the taste of my homemade portabellas better. The ones they served could have used a little more time to marinate to pick up some added flavor.
I may not have been indecisive about my lunch choice yesterday but I cannot say the same for my workouts. Actually, I have been debating my fitness choices for a week or so now. As you know, I have been doing the Chalean Extreme DVD series and while I like it, I am not sure it is something I will follow through with until the end. The first couple of weeks were great but it has become very repetitive and that is something I have a hard time with in my workouts.(Now I remember why, I didn’t complete it the first time) I like them to constantly be changing so that I do not get bored. If I get bored with a workout, I simply won’t do it. I am bad that way!
Not working out is not an option for me(my sanity says so, lol) but I feel like I need to put a plan in place very soon. This Summer has been kind of fly by my pants with exercise because of my kids being out of school and my schedule being off. While that was fine for a little while I am really starting to crave structure and I am starting to miss the gym as well. Home workouts are fine by me most of the time but there is something about being surrounded by like-minded people that is very motivating.
So here are a couple options I am looking at:
My friend Kyra, at The Get in Shape Girl is also a personal/virtual trainer and has put together a 12 week boot camp in an e-book that I have been interested in for a while now. I have seen the before and after pictures of the people who have completed it and they all look fabulous. Serious changes were made!! I have also used Kyra’s services in the past and I was whipped into awesome shape. The girl knows her workouts, that is for sure!!
The other option is to just head back to the gym and get re-involved in some group exercise classes. I truly love Body Pump and felt like I was getting nice results when I was going a couple times per week. The only thing I don’t like about it, is that classes limit me to going to the gym at a certain time and due to appointments, kids schedules, ect it doesn’t always work out. The last thing I want is an excuse to not do something.
So, there is my dilemma. I am not sure what I am going to do at this point but come August 27th when my daughter goes back to school I will have made a decision and put a plan into place!!!
While I was standing in the check-out line at Walgreens today I spotted this pack of M&M’s. The last week or so I have found myself getting excited for the upcoming Fall season so these fit right in line with that!
I don’t know about you but I am a big fan of candy corn and M&M’ so these have caught my interest! I didn’t but them today but I think I will have to grab a bag soon!!
Do you get bored with workouts easily?
Do you prefer weight lifting classes, circuits or working with weights on your own?
