I took all my vitamins this morning BEFORE eating and this happened like the second day I was taking JUST the multivitamin, but because I hadn't eaten yet - it only took a few minutes and yeah...it came right back up! ugh. :(
so I had to call in late to work and I let my stomach settle down a bit before I could eat half of my breakfast (as Petey, our pug, ate the other half when i wasn't watching! lol.)...
but yeah. so that's my vitamin post for the day. I LIKE the fact that I'm taking vitamins, but I have to learn how/when to take them.
Ok - so exercise...I normally love exercise, when I'm doing it - but man, it takes me a LOT to get motivated to actually get my ass TO the gym at night. :(
I haven't gone in over a week and looking at my exercise blog for the year so far, it's been 1 month and 4 days into the year and I've only exercised 11 days out of 34 so far.
SO. I am challenging myself in February to try and hit at LEAST 12 days of exercise this month.
And consiering February is only 28 days and we're already in 4 days...that's only 24 days left in the month - so that's every other day of exercise. I CAN do it.
a'ight - i need to get to work.
