I didn’t post yesterday! Did you miss it?! Did you miss me?! Hmmmm? Hmmmm?
Have no fear, I did not fall off the IGNITE wagon, I’ve been a good Torcher and stayed the course. Let me fill you in:
Yesterday was supposed to be my rest day, but I wanted to get back on track so that my Day 1 workouts started on a Monday. For me, psychologically I do better with that. I don’t know why, but I’ve decided not to analyze it and just accept my little oddities. So, I did not rest (and yes, I know the importance of rest and I cannot WAIT for Sunday to do just that).
Yesterday I got in my OHM’s Fav (cue trumpets and marching band and confetti…except not confetti because I sweat so much and it’d stick to me for days) and then went to a Hot Mama Strength and Sass class at our Westshore location instead of doing Full Body Torch #1.
To say I was grumpy yesterday is an understatement. I was MAD. M.A.D. – MAD. Lots of things went sideways and I’ve been feeling unsupported, under-appreciated and just, well, angry. I was angry all day yesterday. Stupid people, stupid business, stupid Lindsay, stupid dogs, stupid peanut butter knife, stupid bag of peanut butter cups just staring at me taunting me, stupid everything…and THAT is not like me.
While at class I was able to vent to my Hot Mamas, to purge the thoughts that kept bouncing around in my head and receive validation for my feelings. The support you receive at Hot Mama classes is second to none. They lift you when you’re feeling blue and they offer to have a fist fight with you should you feel the need for physical release (seriously…that was offered…and that made me laugh which then created a waterfall of letting go of anger and reframing the day). We laughed at class. The Mamas made fun of me, they supported me and they picked me back up and placed me on my feet again.
Also…how can one stay mad when you look down and see this cutie planking on your weights?!
There are no words but thank you to the Hot Mamas yesterday for allowing me to just be Lindsay. I didn’t have to be the OHM, I wasn’t “Mooooooom!””, I didn’t have to be anything but a woman in a bad mood. I just got to be me and release my anger. I left class feeling a little less angry and a little more supported.
Oh…and yes…I realize my sugar withdrawal is showing in different ways right now…anger being #1. LOL. I’m better today.
Anywho…the workout was phenomenal and my muscles are huge. HA! Just kiddin’…but it was a great workout.
And FYI…I have stayed the course on my nutrition and am following the IGNITE Nutrition Rules. All is well on that front.
Today is Day 8 and I need to get my Metabolic Workout #1 (curse you!!) and Arms Day #1 done. Once I post this and livestream at 7am…off I go to the garage to get it all done!
What will you do today to get active, Mamas? And who do you have to support you on your sugar-withdrawal angry days? I hope you have somewhere safe to go where you can be yourself. If not, I strongly suggest you find some Hot Mamas…those chickadees are super amazingly awesome.
Okay…today I am filling my day with JOY and positivity. I am breathing and releasing the knot in my tummy and I am going to have a beautiful day. I hope you do the same!
Update: Metabolic Workout #1 – DONE = SWEATY MESS!
