Um, yeah. So, I woke up this morning feeling like an Oompa Loompa. I swear the theme song was playing in my bedroom (feel free to click on the link and listen along while you read and laugh at me). Anyway – I had an AWESOME weekend hanging with my husby and some friends – and when I say “awesome”, I mean I ate a disgusting amount of food. Disgusting.
Mexican Dinner on Friday, followed by lunch on Saturday in Beacon Hill, followed by a huge Italian dinner at Monicas in the North End. Oh, and in between those lovely feeding frenzies we had a Robert Downey Jr. sighting. Yes ladies. Ironman. Walking his baby. Not gonna lie – I probably could’ve eaten him (and his baby) too – but luckily I had just devoured lunch so it was gonna be tough to fit anything else in my belly. I needed at least 7 minutes before I was to feed again. And, by that time, he and his offspring had gone.
When all was said and done, the hub and I polished off a box (no, not 1, but an entire BOX) of Italian cookies from my fave North End bakery…Bovas. It’s as if the fat cells in my body were screaming for me to give em’ the goods – and, me (not wanting to see them suffer), obliged with lots of white bread and sugar.
I usually eat healthy and work out all week. I then give myself one day (usually Saturday) to eat whatever my heart desires. You know, 37 donuts, 18 cupcakes, a whole entire bag of Oreos…whatevs. However, this weekend I ate like a heard of pregnant elephants. And, as a result of the my sweet pastry sacrifice, I need to get back into the action, like…bigtime. Do you think it would be frowned upon to work out while sitting on the couch? Kidding!
When I’m not stuffing my weekend-face, I’m addicted (and I mean ADDICTED) to the POPSUGAR Fitness channel on youtube. Not only are the videos a-w-e-s-o-m-e, but they are F-R-E-E free and that’s pretty sweet for people like me who can’t stay motivated without variety. I’m such a 5 year old.
Anyway, while they have a few 45 minute videos, most of the videos are 10-30 minutes so you can mix and match. And, let me tell you – these chicks make you work for it in those shorty sessions. Here’s a sampling of what I did today –
In addition to the Bootie Burning Workout from Sarah Jessica Parker’s trainer (above), I also did an Upper Body Workout and Flat Belly Workout – total of around 30 minutes. I’ll be finishing it off with a lil’ power walk after work. And, that’s how it’s done.
Let’s have a moment of silence…for my fat rolls.
Oh, and P.S. I’ve decided that I need to be a dog owner, like pronto-saurus-rex. I’m ready for dog slobber and poop bags. So, if you see this dog over the holidays, please let him know I want to be his best friend, like…yesterday. Please & Thank you. Okay, bye.
