Just Do It
I don’t know what was wrong with me today. But I did NOT want to do strength training. I haven’t done it for a few days, it’s hard to get back into it!
So I procrastinated all morning. Went on a walk with Chipper. Made Branden toast. Ate 1/2 a banana. Read my scriptures. Read some blogs.
Finally I decided I needed to JUST DO IT.
Every single rep, every set seemed like such a chore. Time went by so slow.
But I felt amazing when I was done. And that’s what matters. Plus, I’m starting to see definition in my arms, nothing excites me more! I used to have stupid little chicken arms.
Last night I cooked up some millet. I bought the millet a long time ago, on my Whole Foods trip. I decided to pull it out of the cupboard and cook it up, no time like the present right?
I cooked the millet in water with cinnamon and nutmeg. It really was a pain to cook, I had to keep adding more water and I was never sure if it was done. I kept tasting it, and it kept tasting worse and worse. I wasn’t a fan of the texture either.
Well, this morning I warmed it back up in the microwave and topped it with frozen blueberries and peanut butter for a nice little breakfast.
While I don’t love the taste or texture of millet, the blueberries and peanut butter made up for it. I don’t think I’ll ever buy millet again, oatmeal is just so much tastier and easier, but it was fun trying out a new grain!
At first I thought a filtered watter bottle was unnecessary, but the water does taste so much better with the filter!
And even though the filter is a nice touch to this water bottle, my favorite feature is the bite valve.
Water only comes out when you are biting on the valve. When you bite on it…
It opens up. Haha, I feel like a little kid again drinking from a bottle! Makes drinking water much more fun!
Yesterday I stayed hydrated because of this miraculous water bottle. Trips to the bathroom were more frequent than usual, but that’s how it should be! This water bottle is helping me drink more water!
Have you ever cooked with “new” grains? – Barley and now millet.
How do you find motivation to work out when you really don’t want to? – I just remind myself how great I will feel after and I JUST DO IT.
How do you stay hydrated? -I am loving the Camelbak Groove water bottle!
