Work out tapes are kind of hilarious.
I bought a bunch of yoga DVDs to enhance my personal practice, and see if I could get fresher ideas to incorporate into my classes...but instead I got this:
What is this?? It's like an 80s step video with deep breathing. The cover was totally deceptive. I thought I was purchasing a hip and innovating yoga sculpt routine. What I actually got was women in high waisted pants, taking deep breathes and and instructing me to do ballet moves. Practice has definitely evolved. I could barely get through 20 minutes of this non-sense.
My self-esteem is totally in the terlet without running. I feel huge. I feel sad. I feel blah. With that said, I am really trying hard to take time to make myself feel better. Spending time getting ready and looking good is definitely helping. I still feel like Shrek, but even a little lipstick on Shrek is an improvement.
While I can't run, I have decided to take a picture of myself every day to remind myself that:
1) Darn it! I am kinda hott.
2) I am more than my weight.
3) Running does not define who I am.
I am really digging my new headband!
Focusing on my diet has been extremely easy since I have all the time in the world to do it. I have my dinners planned and enough wherewithal to whip up breakfast and lunch in a healthy and quick manner.
Breakfast Today was Italian scrambled eggs and whole grain toast....oh and of course, coffee.
Lunch, a genius left over idea. I tossed the rice and broccoli together, and stirred in a can of tuna. Sounds weird and stinky but it was delicious.
All day though, I looked forward to dinner....see a pattern? I had turkey chili simmering in my crock pot all day. I made it EXTRA spicy. It was oh-so-delicious and I am really excited about it for lunch.

Now I leave you with adorable picture of Goliath:
Do you do any work out DVDs?
What effects your self-esteem?
What do you put in your chili?
