Is this a simple case of déjà vu

I hate to sound like a broken record but I got my HIIT on the elliptical machine yesterday (Tuesday). I did the 2,1 minute intervals and it seriously kicked my butt. I lessened my warm up time so that I got in exactly 20 minutes on the fast speed.

Yesterday, I read a post by a blogger saying that their workout felt like it was getting harder. I left a comment saying something like my workout only feels harder when I skip a day. I definitely spoke too soon. The workout yesterday was a killer! My legs were feeling it big time and it seriously felt like the machine was set at the highest tension. It wasn't. Everything was how I normally do it. I guess that's what I get for opening my big mouth lol.

My eating was about 85% on point. I stopped at Target during lunch and indulged in the awesomeness that is their popcorn combo. How could I resist? You get a drink and a popcorn for $1.50! I love me some popcorn. That was my only bad snack for the day. Everything else was relatively healthy and in my plan for the day.

Kudos to me.

Dear Boyfriend,

I wanted to thank you for making me breakfast these past couple of weeks. You don't know how much they have helped me stay away from McDonald's or Burger King. You are very much appreciated.

But this morning, something changed. This morning, my sandwich was missing. I blame FIFA. I know I told you I would eat an oatmeal at work. My oatmeal is still in the kitchen pantry. So I was forced to pick something up.

I hope you know my breakfast fail was all your fault.

(I still love you though.)

Your Girlfriend


  1. congrats on doing the intervals anyway! :)

  2. Don't worry, I won't judge you! My workout is still harder (I swear I am going to scream if Jenny McCarthy tels me to djust my arms one more time), but I am feeling more energy. That is a good sign. I hope it gets easier for you soon.

    As for the breakfast situation, I can totally relate. My hubby makes my breakfast most mornings, but when he doesn't I am at a loss on what to do! I blame him constantly for my mess ups! ;)

  3. Leila - thank you!

    Bowmanh - Sometimes, it's good to workout to your dvds with no volume. That keeps me sane and stops me from cursing out Jillian or Debbie =) ("Let's keep it going...." Gawd I hate that line!!)
