Hello everyone, hope you’re having a fantastic Thursday!
Today I slept in and then dragged my tired booty to the gym. I weighed in an ounce less than yesterday then proceeded to work it out. I did the treadmill for 30 minutes going between 3-4.5 speed and 2-12 incline then walked around the track to cool down for 10 minutes before hopping on the elliptical for 10 minutes. I can’t wait til 4.0-4.5 speed feels normal to me because right now even 3.5 gets me out of breath. It does help to have a good playlist I’ve learned and here was mine today:
Katelyn’s Summer of 2012 playlist 1:
Rhythm of Love- Plain White T’s
Sexy and I Know It-LMFAO (Who doesn’t like working out to this song? Its so fun!)
Without You-David Guetta
Empire State of Mind- Jay Z & Alicia Keys
Wild Ones-Flo Rida
Shake It-Metro Station
You and I-Ingrid Michaelson
Born This Way-Lady Gaga
Dizzy-Goo Goo Dolls
Fire Burning-Sean Kingston
My sweaty face after my workout:
When I got home I had a post workout snack of watermelon which my body loved. It’s always nice to cool it down!
I turned on the Biggest Loser (via Netflix) while I started making my lunch of whole grain thin crust barbeque spinach pizza and for some reason it got me emotional. It was the first episode of season 9 and gave me some mixed emotions. First of all, it makes me sad that many of those people are so unhappy because of their weight when I believe that a lot of them are that heavy because they are unhappy. I know that I definitely eat more when I have been hating on myself. You shouldn’t lose weight because you hate yourself, you should eat healthier and exercise because you love yourself. I just want to give each and every one of them a hug because I know what they’re going through. I am just as heavy as most of them and I know its tough. I’m interested to see how this season plays out and I hope that each and every one of the contestants can learn to love themselves because we are all beautiful-skinny, thin, average, fat, obese whatever. Our bodies are all beautiful and all deserve good healthy food and daily exercise.
