Oh hai there Blogger... I can essplain...

Please forgive my absence - as I talked about here, long distance sucks.  But it sucks a lot less when my awesome boyfriend comes to visit, and so I tend to just drop everything and kiss him as much as is humanely possible for a few days.  It didn't leave a lot of time for blogging.  It also didn't leave a lot of time for working out, so... this was interesting today...

Today's workout (and the first one since my last post on Thursday!):
Powers Pairs x3 and section one of Beginner Yogilates
289 calories/49:04


Today's workout = um, YIKES.  I got about halfway through Power Pairs and thought I was going to die, but I made myself finish getting through it three times.  This is why taking several days off of exercise and clean eating is not a good idea.  Some day I will remember that.  But I got distracted by Grizzly Adams here...


A far more accurate depiction of our actual personalities.  Please just ignore the hair in these pictures - we both could use a haircut.  And you know... maybe a brush.


But he had to leave this morning (insert lots of crying and whining and sad faces here) so it was back to work for me.  I ordered Yogilates last week on an impulse, and decided to try it today.  It's split into three  different sections, and I was so wiped out from Power Pairs that I only made it through the first section, but so far I like it.  It is very beginner though, so I may need to move up to the intermediate version soon, and use the beginner one for off days.  If I get my mojo back in full force this week (please, please, please) then I may do a review of the whole DVD.  But I suppose I should ask...

Are any of my five wonderful readers interested in workout DVD reviews? 
I'm a big DVD girl for exercise because I look scary when I work out and don't really want other people to see me that much.  Plus, I'm slightly intimidated by gyms, and I get bored and tend to take the easy way out when I'm completely on my own (i.e. just doing machines and such at gyms) - classes and DVDs where someone is telling me what to do work well for me.  It's hard enough for me to make myself exercise, if I have to think on top of exercising, I'm out.  

That's about all I've got for today.  I would love to tell you all about the fun adventures that David and I went on during his visit, but mostly we just spent a lot of time cuddling and telling each other how much we'd miss one another.  We're that gross couple that no one likes, really.
