Today is a new day

This morning I decided to take a walk instead of working out inside.  It was the best decision.

Pre-dawn thunderstorms cleared the humidity.  It was clear and cool.  The grass was wet.  We did the 25 minute walk from the Jeff Galloway app.  I know it wasn't strenuous, but it was nice.

Tuesday was simply awful, but I managed to regroup.  I did think about leaving Weight Watchers for a while.  I'm using the 21 Day Fix eating plan, anyways.  I can put that $35 a month to a better use.  But me leaving would probably spell the end of our at work meeting, so I'll stay for now.

I decided that I do, in fact, need a kick in the pants.  So this is me, kicking myself in the pants.  The 3 step process:

Step 1:  Hit my eating plan hardcore.
The 21 Day Fix eating plan works for me.  I need to SERIOUSLY get back to it.

Step 2:  Continue with my Half- Marathon training
I started this program with the app last week and I'm really loving it.  Two days a week, typically Mondays and Wednesdays, I run for 30 minutes.  One day a week I go on a nice walk.  My long run days are on the weekend.

It's a program that makes sense to me, and feels good to do.  I don't know how else to explain it.

Step 3:  Add a new workout program
This one is the odd one.  I know that I'm doing the running, but I need more activity.  I'm working on my stamina.

Cize came out in July, so I picked it up.  The name is silly.  I know!  The program is based around dancing, of the Hip Hop-ish variety.  I've only done 1 workout so far, but it's so wonderfully fun!  (Contact me if you're interested in it!)

This program has 6 workouts a week.  You know what that means...  2 a day workouts!  I don't know if I'm going to get up crazy early and do them back to back or run in the morning and do the DVD workout after work.  I'll figure it out on Monday.

Who else is kicking their own butts?
