bouncy bouncy fun fun fun fun fun
I'm struggling with body image/feeling at the moment.
I just don't feel fit. So, besides being committed to working out again, I'm also replacing my chair at work with an exercise ball. I got it yesterday and in general I think it's much more comfortable than sitting on a chair. I don't really feel like I'm working my core or anything sitting on it...but I do I have it here if I all of a sudden get motivated to start doing crunches. We'll see about that.
Look here for some of the benefits of sitting on an exercise ball instead of a chair at work: http://www.gearfire.net/10-reasons-to-use-an-exercise-ball-as-your-chair/
I wanted to go to the gym this morning before work and in a moment of frustration I decided not to go. I'm regretting the decision. I needed to do that for myself and I let myself get shut down.
I think that part of what is going on with me is that I've stopped eating meat and have probably replaced too much of my meal with carbohydrates. I know carbs do not do my particular body type well. I just have to do a bit more research on meat free protein, especially meat free protein that would be crave worthy at breakfast time.
Off to explore my options.
