Day #2 (or why my bed will be the death of me)

Today's workouts:
One mile walk from Leslie Sansone's Ultimate 5 Day Walk Plan
Focus T25: Speed 1.0

I have to admit that I am really proud of myself for both workouts today.  I know it's only day two of my October challenge, so I shouldn't be hitting a wall yet... but let's be honest, sometimes getting back into the swing of things is rough.  I put off my T25 workout for a long time before I had to face the music today.

This morning my alarm went off at 4:30 am.  Oof.  The sun wasn't even awake yet, and there I was, struggling to function so that I could do my one mile walk.  I will admit that I got dressed and then crawled back into bed and thought about blowing it off.  I love my bed and it was super comfy this morning... just like every morning.  But then I remembered that it was day two and that I was going to have to blog about it later, so I better get it together.  I must be honest and say that I didn't go all out with this one.  I took it a little easy, because really?  That is too early to be going crazy.  But I got it done and that's what matters!

I then got ready for work, made myself a super delicious breakfast sandwich (note to everyone: buy Canadian bacon right now) and went on my merry little way to work.  Work was an adventure today.  One of the tours I do is called Family Magic, and it is quite fun, but the tone of it completely depends on the group because it is very interactive.  I've done that tour with one family of four and it's very different than it is with a group of 20, but it's always entertaining because kids are entertaining.  Today was a unique one for me because I only had two people signed up, a mother and daughter.  It ended up being a lot of fun (for me, at least, I hope they enjoyed themselves too).  You have to love how honest kids are, though.  At one point today, she looked up at me and told me my teeth were yellow.  Yikes.  Time to get some whitening toothpaste!

Seriously.  My day to day life is so fascinating I end up talking about toothpaste.

But I digress.  I did suffer a slight setback to my October challenge already, but nothing major.  I packed myself a healthy (also boring) lunch of a turkey sandwich and applesauce.  Then my tour admin suggested we get corn dog nuggets from Casey's Corner.  In case you're not a Walt Disney World person, corn dog nuggets are exactly what they sound like.  Little bites of corn dog.  They are heavenly.  Obviously I said yes.  Do you know what's not in the Weight Watchers database?  Corn dog nuggets.  I, too, was shocked.  But I decided to track them as two corn dogs and move on.  So yes, I tracked them!  I am still inching closer to that lotion!

When I got home from work, I crashed on my couch.  Then I crashed in my bed.  I love my job, but it takes a toll on me physically.  I am just exhausted after work most days.  So I took a half hour nap, then I sucked it up and did my T25 workout.  And you know what?  It wasn't awful.

Happy Wednesday!
