Get Off My Butt

Remember that spending freeze I went on? Yea I'm still on it. For the most part. Besides christmas gifts and a few other things (like the Jaclyn Hill Palette!) I really have kept to this spending freeze. And it's been absolute torture. Not only because there are things that I want and can't have, but because a spending freeze is a lot like losing weight. It takes a long time to see a difference. I don't know about you but I can pretty much gain 10 pounds in a matter of days. But then it takes all eternity to take that weight off. This spending freeze is giving me that same frustration. I cut down on the spending so where the hell is all my money?! It's so easy to spend a load of money in one shopping trip (especially online), but to recover from all the shopping trips ugh, I hate it as much as I hate trying to lose those ten pounds. I would love to tell you this post is going to transition into something like "how to stay on a budget" but hahahaha nope. I'm pretty much just here to say that I actually stuck with something. And to also complain about it.


Let's also talk about how I haven't worked out since like.... August. I wish I could tell you that's a joke. This is the biggest rut I have ever been in and I'll give you every excuse possible. "I'm too tired, I don't have time, I don't feel good, I have a headache, my stomach hurts, I'm too hangry, I need to edit my video, I need to film something"... I could keep going.

Here's the truth: I'm tired all the time because I don't exercise. I may not "make time" to go to the gym but I absolutely have time to work out at home, just like I used to. I would come home from work and spend 30-60 minutes doing Tone It Up workouts. I constantly don't feel good and have headaches and stomach aches because I'm not taking care of myself with exercise and clean eating. I'm LAZY! And that's the truth. I sit at a desk all day, I can't tell you how much my butt hurts just half way through the day. Then I go home and sit my sore aching ass on the couch or in front of another computer because apparently watching Vanderpump Rules reruns and hours of YouTube are way more important than spending 20 minutes doing squat exercises. 





Funny how I'm talking about not seeing money from my spending freeze but I'm over here paying for a gym membership I haven't used in months. 'Merica!




Yaaasss, Queen Lisa! Ok Queen Lisa, I will work out today. Yes Queen Lisa, whatever you say Queen Lisa. 


TELL ME what your current exercise motivation and routines are. Or are you lazy with a sore flat butt like me? 


In case you missed it, I have two new videos up!

  2. I am lazy too- and broke hahaha I honestly don't have money for a new yoga package, but I could do it at home. <---lazy. However, I am snowboarding a ton, which is an insane workout. But washing it down with craft beer surely is undoing any good I'm doing haha

  4. I'm in a major rut with working out too. I'm hanging in there with Yoga but not as often as I could. It's so hard to get your mind right when it comes to that.

  5. haha, nope I'm exactly like you, I know why I feel bad health wise, but do you think I could actually do something about it? Meh. That requires effort.

    And I'm hearing you about the money, why can't it just save instantly. If only money grew on trees hey.

  7. I haven't really worked out since August either... other than walking Bear. And lately that hasn't happened because, freezing weather. If I had a workout buddy I think I would be better about working out, but sadly there really isn't anyone around here to that with.

  8. Oh I hear ya girl! You could do squats while you watch our girls Stassi and Kristen. I neeeeeed to get up and work out in the morning so it's done, but I'm in the same rut. And do you know how HARD it is to wake up and get moving when it's 13 degrees outside? WOOF!

  15. DVD's at home mostly. It's convenient and it's on your own schedule. No commute! There are some at the gym I go to and I tend to only go when I'm on Christmas Break because the times aren't convenient for me. I'd love to try 'real' Yoga at a Yoga studio some day just to see what it's like. DVD's are a great though and there are some really challenging ones out there.
