Morning Workouts…

…I would rather do an evening one for sure.  I need to get the Spouse to understand what works for him doesn’t work for me.  In all honesty I haven’t been able to get in my evening workouts that much since he has been home.  I had a schedule…eat clean, no alcohol, do my evening workouts for at least 45 minutes to an hour.  I would do a form of Taebo either cardio based, sculpting, or a combo.  It is what works for me.
I have been feeling down lately since I haven’t been getting in my workout like I want, I have been eating too many carbs, and drinking too much alcohol.  It DOES make a huge difference to a body when the diet and exercise regime is changed so suddenly. So rapidly.
That is it.  I don’t care if YOU  feel YOU need carbs.  That YOU need to eat a certain way.  YOU don’t like Taebo.  ROBIN likes it.  Low carb WORKS for ROBIN.  I am spiralling back into being lethargic and cranky.  I am bloated.  I am still in the clothes that I bought, but I don’t feel the same I did before the end of the deployment.  Other folks can do what the hell they want.  EAT EVERY CARB you can lay your hands on…drink every beer…go do your thing.  I no longer have the patience to wait or to figure out what to do to adjust to another person.  I am hoping that being selfish and doing ME other people around me will realize that what I am doing works and it isn’t a fad.
I had to rant this out.  I haven’t been writing because I have been a lazy bum…I have been depressed…and really what could I say?  Time to DO ME again.  I woke up this morning feeling every part of being 38.  Aches everywhere, exhausted, and freaking depressed.  My husband suggested that I get out of bed and get in a quick 30 minute workout.  Fuck me!  30 minutes will not help me right now.  I did get in a workout…but I KNOW what to do.  Please do not suggest to me what I should do…especially if you do things completely opposite from me.  Seriously.
I am looking at adding the Melt it Off program to my little arsenal of fitness DVDs.  It looks interesting enough and like cookbooks my new thing is to collect workouts. 
My workout today was Turbo Charged Fat Burner
This evening will be an ab workout.  I will have the Girl make dinner tonight.  I am sure she will help out especially if she wants to eat.
My rant/dump is over…will be back later.  I need to research the Melt it Off Program…

    Yeah, it’s really tough when your husband likes to do things exactly the opposite! And then makes you feel like you’re wrong just because you prefer something different; or acts like you’re saying he’s bad because he doesn’t like the same things you do. I wish I had some advice on how to get him to see your side, but I don’t–I’m still working on my own husband! Anyway, at leat you know that you’re not alone. 🙂

    Do what’s good for you, Rob. Don’t try to fix it if it ain’t broke. Do you really need alcohol at this pont in your life? Remember what you have been doing for over a year – what makes you feel good.

    Kathy; It is good to know that I am not alone…although it feels that way sometimes. Depression sucks…and since I stopped with the workouts and my thyroid medication needed adjusting…the depression has been really bad. I drop out for a while and recharge I guess.
    Mama: No I don’t need the alcohol. It just happened. That tells me I should stay away from it because it is so easy for me to go back to drinking great quantities of it. I have been drinking water by the litres since Wed…it is out of my system. I am back to doing me…my food…my exercise…even the time I get to bed. I do feel better when I stick to my routine…
