Workout Journal, Days 17, 18, 19, 20 & 21 (Sorry, I’ve been busy.)

Hello there loyal workout journal fans! You probably thought I gave up over Thanksgiving, that I skipped the gym and gorged on turkey and puffed myself up like a Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade float.

No sirree! I arrived in Florida on Tuesday night and so that day was a loss–travel & the time change made exercise impossible. But on Wednesday, after our trip to West Palm Beach, mom dropped me at the gym and I did a circuit and the elliptical workout. Then on Thursday, Thanksgiving itself, I still went to the gym (with my brother) and did 40 minutes of cardio (walking/running 3 miles total). On Friday, I went to a different gym (near the beach where we went later in the day) and had trouble finding the machines I needed–so did some sit-up stuff and then did another treadmill routine.

Yesterday I did my intense routine back here in L.A. with those burpees you guys told me the right word for (thrusting a ball out, doing a push-up on it, standing back up and then holding it over my head). Today–as I Tweeted–I did another 40 minutes of cardio watching Mayim Bialik get a makeover on “What Not To Wear” which was truly entertaining. (Also: Jeff Goldblum was on a Stairmaster behind me.)

The problem, though, is I’ve been pigging out a lot these past few days and will this whole next week–with two more dinner parties scheduled. I’m not worrying too much about the diet, truth be told, and really focusing on the exercise. When things calm down a bit after the holidays, I’ll start to cut back if necessary in order to see changes. Maybe I’ll see changes anyway. Lord knows I tried to squeeze into super tight jeans today at a jeans store–wasn’t quite there yet.

Onward and upward!
