I will say it. My post-candy binging workouts suck. It is twelve days after Halloween and I have not had a decent workout since. I do not have a lot of candy on hand, but I have managed to eat some every day. I usually do a DVD workout around 10:00am with my daycare children. Unfortunately, I have been sneaking two to three pieces of candy out of my children’s Halloween buckets daily. I can usually sneak it around 9:30 a.m. It seems to be the best time to sneak the candy, because my daycare children and daughter are usually involved in play dough, coloring, or an art project when I remember the candy buckets in the hall closet. Therefore, I have managed to eat candy about thirty minutes prior to my workouts since Halloween.
My friend and pseudo personal trainer, Kim, would be disappointed in me if she knew I was eating the candy. Actually she called me right after I ate some to check up on me and my progress. I ended up telling her I was eating candy and she forgave me. She also reminded me how bad candy is for me. Now, I think of her each time I sneak into the hallway closet to get some goods.
Post-candy workouts are sad. I can’t get a good groove going. I am distracted and constantly want to stop and do something else. Actually right now I am listening to Bob Harper yell out exercise commands as I type. We are all just listening to it because I am so lazy I had to stop and type this blog instead of exercise. Even my little exercise assistants aren’t into the workout today. We are in a slump. The good news is, I do not think I can get away with stealing anymore candy without my children noticing. They have been organizing the candy and will start to notice what is missing. My husband will remind me how awful it is to steal candy from the kids. My excuse? They don’t need so much sugar anyway. Hopefully next week will be better and I will kick some booty with my workouts.
