Failure and 1/2 Success

I failed at working out yesterday.  I did not get home until about 10:30 and by then I was spent.  I did, however, have some success today.  I did half of the legs and back work out.  My legs were super sore and tired though, and about the half way point I was no longer able to stay standing.  I am going to try and finish it up tonight before bed.  I also want to get in Ab Ripper tonight because my stomach is my most worrisome area. 

I am doing my best to eat well this holiday season.  My boy's parents are being helpful because they have started eating super healthy too.  They are with me on the high fructose corn syrup thing so I don't really have to worry when eating at their house.  My parents are also being pretty awesome because they don't eat much with it anymore either.  My biggest struggle is not eating meat that isn't environmentally friendly.  I find that when I am home I am basically a vegetarian.  I am okay with that. My brother is also vegetarian and so there is always lots of good food in the house that coincides with what I want.  Both of my families are also not big junk food eaters.  This is helpful because when I crave eating something terrible for me, it would usually involve having to go to the store to get it - and if you know me, you know I am too lazy to do that!

My family started raising chickens.  The boy's family has always had chickens.  But now I get to eat lots of home laid, from well fed chickens, eggs.  They are so delicious.  I mean, I always loved eggs, but these especially.  In fact, even though it is about two o'clock, I am going to make pancakes and eggs and eat that here in about two seconds!

On a side, completely unrelated note, one of my really great friends got engaged this Monday.  I am SUPER EXCITED for her! She is one of the ladies that makes law school, and life in general, better.  So congratulations to you *K; you deserve everything lovely and beautiful that the world has to offer you. :)

I worked out yesterday!! I did P90X.  I did the Shoulders and Arms workout and the Ab Ripper X.  I am so sore today.  I am going to try and work out again today.  It is going to have to be tonight though cause I will be busy until later.  But I just wanted to let everyone know that I had my first official day of success! :)

I suck at keeping up with this blog. Sorry about that.

I am home for the holidays.  I am also back to my pre-lemonade diet weight.  I am determined not to gain any weight during the holidays.  I know that I can do this.  I am watching how many calories I eat, and I am going to start exercises.  I am going to exercise this morning, I am going to do some P90X.  I am going to pick my favorite workouts and just do them for this week.  Then starting next Monday I am going to try and make an actual exercise routine.  I know it is going to be hard, but I am determined to at least exercise once a day, five days a week.  During my immersion, I think I am just going to go to the gym and hit the elliptical for thirty minutes a day.  Either way, I have 18 days between now and school that I can exercise and get healthier.

I will update you when I am finished exercising! :)
