Back to Basics

After a while, and some success, it has been easy to let little bad habits creep back in unknowingly.  For instance, I used to always drink 32 oz of water BEFORE I ate breakfast.  Somewhere along the line I stopped doing that.   I used to allow myself one fruit for I have 2-3 most days.  Clearly these are not the worst things in the world to be doing, but it just went to show how easy it is to "allow" ourselves breaks that just keep going. 

Well, I got out the measuring cup to measure 1 cup of grapes for breakfast.  And I drank about 15 oz of water before breakfast...not my whole cup but it's on the way to getting back to that habit!

I worked out yesterday for 2 hours and 45 minutes.  I did Boot Camp, walked 3 miles on the treadmill and then did Sh*Bam!  I am so sore right now....SInce I added Boot Camp I haven't really wanted to take out any of my other classes, so I've been doing a ton of double days of exercise.  I've already worked out over 20 hours this month and that's with taking 4 days off!  I know, it's crazy!!   I will be glad when Boot camp is done.  (at the end of January).  It does work my butt off, but I don't love it. 

I did wake up to this Facebook post this morning from a gym friend:
Good morning sunshine!! I know you are worn out from your intense work out(S) but I wanted to let you know you are an amazing person, role model and friend. Those of us that are priviledged to spend time with you are constantly amazed by your drive and accomplishments. We love you and hope you have a restful day! xo
