How do YOU feel about Sundays? Do you love them? Hate them? I have mixed feelings. I usually struggle toward the end of the day when I start thinking about going back to work. And I have to make sure I plan well for what I want to accomplish during the day otherwise I spend a lot of wasted time.
Today, I definitely had some wasted time. Didn't check to see what time the gym opened and so I got to the gym at 10:30 only to find out that it doesn't open until NOON on Sundays. So I decided to go to the office and get some work done...I DID get some work done but about 3/4 of the day home (20 minutes), I realized I left my phone at the office and had to turn back around. I had planned on going to the gym before my massage at 2pm but b/c I left my phone at the office I wasn't able to workout before the massage. Now it is after the massage and who wants to workout AFTER? NOT ME! I am going to have to muster it up though....I made a commitment to myself and I am keeping it. :)
Regardless, I definitely need to have a better plan in place next weekend so I don't feel so frustrated! BAM! Attack! Attack!
Anyhoozle, I was really happy with my compliance on eating this week. I am following Dr. John Berardi's 90% compliance concept/recommendation, whatever. Which means if you eat 42 meals a week (6 meals over 7 days) you can miss or not comply on 38 of those meals. This week my goal was 40% carbs, 30% protein and 30% fats. I complied on 40 of my 42 meals and I am PUMPED!! I ate off plan Friday night and this afternoon. LOVE this system...what was great was that I made it through the entire week with 100% compliance so that meant I could have all my cheat meals over the weekend. HELLS YEAH! :)
As for my workouts: I got in 7, yes 7 cardio workouts but only 3 lifting workouts. I am thinking about switching to total body workouts. I am really not trying to add mass and want to get in MORE lifting which seems to be a challenge with the traditional body part split. Something I might consider....WHO KNOWS!
All right guys....we asked A LOT of people, talked a lot about it as a couple and of course, considered all of your suggestions/thoughts on the issue of whether or not to find out the gender of the child. We had some great arguments BOTH ways but we have decided......................
We're going to wait!!!
The main arguments that got us were the following:
- It is the ONE suprise in life where the outcome TRULY doesn't matter.
- It will make the day even MORE special for us to find out after the end of a long delivery! :) One of our good friends has two kids, they found out on one and waited on the other. They LOVED not knowing and the excitement of finding out during delivery. It gave him, as the hubby, the wonderful role of running out of the delivery room and shouting "It's a _____"! This really pulled at my heart strings!
- We will truly get the things we need. Not blue or pink baby clothes someone else thinks are adorable! One of my girlfriends said it was great because at the shower they played guessing games on what she was carrying and they even started a pool. :)
You guys will of course be amond the first to know!! :)
Have a GREAT week everyone! Acheive your goals...reach your potential.
