So in my lunchtime boredom (I was at a curriculum writing session and had an hour for lunch in Alvin) I went to Walmart. I found a book by Jillian Michaels, Making the Cut. It's a 30 day program that should have me 'cut' in no time. It's very hardcore and although I may want to go full force with it sometime, now is not it. The timing isn't right and I think it would freak out my mom to say the least. She's worried about me not eating enough and exercising too much as it is. (She's not at my apartment watching me scarf down everything not nailed down.) I'm going to start a modified version this week. I'm planning on cooking from the book but not as often as it advises. I just don't have the time to cook for both lunch and dinner EVERY day. No thanks. The same thing goes for the workouts. I want to keep up with my running which isn't possible on this plan. I'll have to mesh the two together. I think the strength training will be good for me though. I won't start the workouts until I'm over this cold/sinus mess that I've got going on right now. I was so mad that it kept me from running in the awesome weather yesterday. But, not being able to breathe and coughing up goop is not conducive for a run.
Oh, yeah - I'm starting my Lent early. No sweets or soda. I'm giving myself two exceptions: if Nathan and I go somewhere fancy for Valentine's and get dessert AND my brother's birthday. Bring on the sugar and caffine withdrawls.
