–I skipped my workout this morning. I can’t remember the last time I skipped a work out. I’m not even sure why other than I didn’t feel like it. I woke up, got changed and sat on the floor for a few minutes playing Trivia Crack to wake myself up…as I do every morning. I then went to go get my weights and somewhere between the living room and the guest room I decided I just flat out didn’t want to.

This tells me it is time to change up my routine. To what, I am not sure. I am getting so sick of work out DVD’s and Youtube work outs. It is so hard to force yourself to do something that is miserable every morning. I really wish that there was a decent gym close to my house that I could hit at 4:30am in the morning. I will get over myself by tomorrow morning….hopefully.

–I refuse to cook dinner for just me. Last night I got home late from a meeting after work. Chris didn’t really want dinner at that point but I was starving. Instead of making something for myself, I ate a bagel thin. Ambitious, I know.

–Speaking of bagel thins, Kathy posted about her wheat belly experiment yesterday. After reading her experience in just two weeks I am thinking about it. Except, no rice? That would be hard. I may have to add that book to my list to see if it can turn me!

–Unfollowing people on Bloglovin’ that never respond to comments is the best feeling in the world. It’s like Bye, Felicia!

–I experienced heart burn yesterday for the first real time in my life. Or at least I think it was heart burn. I had veggie soup and tuna fish for lunch. Surely that did not cause it?! Is this a sign that I am getting old? Maybe it was just a fluke. Let’s go with that.

–I need to get on my goals for this month!!! When I realized that the month was half over on Monday I was like ahhh what have I even done this month? Then I realized it had only been two weeks. Darn you February!

    Oh my gosh…as I coasted my way into season #4 or The Good Wife last night, I thought: OH NO! Apparently I’m getting close to the dreaded Season 6 which is NOT available as “prime.” Save me when that happens. I have to admit I’m seriously impressed by your 430 daily workout. Like, that would never happen here. Ever. Good for you woman, even if you did skip today <3

    I wish that damn barre stuff didn’t end being so expensive! I would have loved to have started that with you — even though it definitely would have been an after work venture, not 4:30! And meh to skipping it — sometimes you’re just allowed to!!

    haha, I played the BYE FELICIA game yesterday too! Felt SOOOOOOOO good!

    OMG the other night on the way home from dinner I told Andrew “Either I’m dying or I have heartburn.” Ughhhh gross, old people status! Also, it feels like death.

    Cooking for one sucks. If it’s just me eating, I usually just have cereal. I’m too lazy to cook for just myself.

    ha! I get heartburn much more as I age. Rage.

    Also happy to unfollow non-responders. No time for it. I get getting behind in comments, it happens to me, but consistent non-responders, no thank you.

    i could not live without rice or quinoa. maybe you should try gluten free before cutting out grains? just a thought. i feel you on the working out – you don’t have a planet fitness or anything nearby? if i got up at 430am i would totally text you to motivate you, but i’m lucky if i get up at 6am. i havent been gymming lately because of the snow, and i can’t (won’t) drive in it. also, never cook for just me. cereal or takeout is my go to when i am alone, lol. or ‘nachos’ but considering thats just doritos, beans + cheese.. not really cooking.
    and yay for unfollowing people on bloglovin. i used to keep hoping they would come around, but ugh. aint nobody got time for that.

    I am so lazy, I didn’t even set goals for Feb. I mean it only has 28 days, so it’s not like a real month.

    I refuse to cook for just myself as well.. it drives my husband NUTS, lol. –

    Heartburn is the worst, I get it a lot when I don’t drink enough water. Getting old stinks! Ride or Nah I’mma stay home!

  • Reply Nadine February 18, 2015 at 12:16 pm

    I have gotten heart burn once in my life, and I felt like I was so old. Truthfully it was because I stayed up way too late drinking beer, and then ate White Castle. But it was so odd. I was like is this heartburn?

  • Reply Biana Perez February 18, 2015 at 1:00 pm

    I basically have those mornings once a week where I just dont want to workout and don’t force it!!! Tomorrow will be another day to workout!! As usual your ecards are on point girl!! Cooking for one is so hard for me – I end up eating chicken nuggets half the time like a child lol! xo, Biana – BlovedBoston

    that’s exactly why i changed up my workout routine and started muay thai and going to an actual gym. it’s too bad that you live far from one; it would really pump up the jam for you. have you tried any kettlebell workouts? those kick serious ass (cardio and strength training in one session) and there are a ton of KB workouts for free on youtube (use bob harper’s KB workouts – yikes!)

  • Reply Jana @ Jana Says February 18, 2015 at 1:46 pm

    YES to the nicknames! My husband and I nickname everyone and there’s no way those people need to know what we say.

    I can’t draw anything. At all. My second grader is a better artist than me.

    And HAHAHAHAHA on that first one because honestly, I don’t even really know what ride or die means. I can infer but as for real definition? Nope. Not a clue.

  • Reply Julia February 18, 2015 at 1:59 pm

    Um I skipped two workouts this weekend because on Saturday I was like “I’m having too much fun eating all the food and enjoying my time with Adam to ruin it with working out” and on Sunday I was like “meh.” If it’s just me eating dinner the most I will do is heat up some soup or make myself a pb&j. If I’m feelin’ real fancy I’ll make myself an omelet.

  • Reply Erin February 18, 2015 at 2:30 pm

    I definitely need to be mixing my workouts up more… I have been so bored lately just running mostly and only doing a little bit of weights. I miss going to Zumba class and wish that gym who have tons of class options didn’t cost a fortune. I’m a tightwad, what can I say?!

  • Reply Melissa February 18, 2015 at 2:30 pm

    When i got heartburn for the first time i was like “this is it my childhood is over goodbye youth”

  • Reply Teh Megan February 18, 2015 at 2:50 pm

    When I don’t feel like cooking for just myself, I’ll just make ramen. It’s the WORST for me, but no fucks.
    Worse than ramen for me? HEARTBURN/indigestion all.the.time. I live on Nexium. It sucks. I know that certain foods set me off, so I have to be wary.. and the Kathy bug bit me too after I stepped on the scale. WTF BODY, I’m doing good things for you, do nice things to me!

  • Reply Jessi February 18, 2015 at 3:20 pm

    Oh man, I’ve done that before where I do everything right to get in the workout mood, then do almost nothing for the sweat. It’s always something to bounce back from, but you’re 100% right that it means you need some type of variety! I’m starting to want to understand a little more behind yoga and that’s been a fun “challenge” for me. Someday I’ll headstand and feel awesome for it!!!

  • Reply alyssa February 18, 2015 at 7:04 pm

    It’s actually great that you realize what your skipping a workout is a symptom of! Some people would just shrug it off and let it keep happening. Hope you can find something good to mix things up! And that nickname ecard — too true!

  • Reply Emily February 18, 2015 at 11:10 pm

    You always have the best funnies that just strike a cord with me!! I’ve been there and done that with the “Bye Felicia” people. No time fo’ dat! haha

  • Reply Kay R. February 19, 2015 at 11:34 am

    hahah well so much to say. I cannot work out in the morning at all. I only recently started to cook just for me. Cooking for one is insanely hard especially after you mastered cooking for two. Also I unfollow people as well, I give it some time and then Bye!!! As for my goals… I failed February hard so Im starting March fresh!

  • Reply Amanda February 22, 2015 at 10:53 am

    I totally delete people off of my feed who never respond back! I don’t care if you don’t read my blog every day… we all have people we’re closest too and time limits and whatever – but when someone leaves you a comment you should respond.
