I was in Austin last week.
So I couldn't work out.
Or so I thought.
I thought that since I was in Austin for work, I would have to get together with my colleagues, eat rich Mexican food and order dessert. Because it is a BUSINESS trip. And also, I would not be able to work out.
So when I told Gabe that I couldn't come to the gym on Monday, I had on my very saddest sad face. Poor me. Have to work. With Mexican food and dessert. (Flan. Yum). Or maybe Italian and tiramisu. But it's for WORK.
Gabe saw through my saddest sad face and said "I can Skype you".
I love Skype. It allows me to talk to my friends and family far away and Gabe knows this. I love Skype almost as much as Facebook, and that's a lot.
Apparently Skype can also be used to schedule a one on one appointment with your trainer for anywhere in the world.
Then I thought -- how hard can a Skype workout be? I won't have any weights with me. I won't have any equipment. A few jumping jacks and that should do it, right?
Ummmm.. . no.
We started our workout with Leg Cranks. (24 squats, 24 lunges, 24 jump squats, 24 jump lunges). Five sets. Then 5 sets of walk-outs. . . I may have mentioned those before. Lots and lots of sets of bicycle crunches. (don't ask).
After 30 minutes, I was just as out of breath and soaking wet as I always am after working with Gabe. Only this time, all I had to drink was the $10 of bottled water they put in the room.
And. . .since I did a brutal and sweaty workout, when I went for my Mexican feast, I ordered carne asada tacos on corn tortillas and charro beans. No cheese. No enchiladas. No flan. I looked it up on Weight-fucking-Watchers. The whole meal was only 10 points. I only had about 6 chips before dinner too.
I didn't mean to make sensible food choices, I swear.
Here's my giveaway:
