There was a bloggy break yesterday while I got some other stuff done! Whomp. But I’m back and I’m peppy A-F! I’ve got a lot to do today, as per usual, I guess, but I think if I monitor my time, I can get it all done! My first stop today was the gym, for the first time in a while, and MAN did it feel good! I didn’t go too crazy today, just some time on the ol’ treadmill and a couple of rounds on the weight machines, but I still feel great. I was a little worried that I would lose my stamina build up from when I was working out consistently–and OFTEN (I may have read this article and also freaked out a little tiny bit), but it wasn’t actually as bad as I feared! I definitely wasn’t able to do QUITE as much as I was able to a few months back, but I could still push pretty hard. I can tell I’m going to be sore tomorrow!
It was a struggle today…I was hungry when I woke up, and it only got worse through the rest of the workout! I started to wonder if the rest of the gym could hear the cry of my belly to its people. But I tried to keep myself focused! I need to get back on the path to wellness; I was well on my way to my weight loss goal at the end of the summer last year, and I definitely let it fall off a bit.
BUT! I just need to keep reminding myself that I actually LOVE working out–I’m licensed to teach Zumba and Turbokick for a reason, lol–and I have a goal to work towards. 43 pounds. That’s the goal, for now, depending on muscle build, and I need to keep it in mind because if I’m not working towards it, then it’s just a wish. I’ll probably document it a bit better when I have more of a chance to take real measurements and really track out what workouts I’m doing from day-to-day, etc, etc. I’ll feel better about showing a before when I have an after…LOL.
For now, though, I’m home! And I’m FINALLY eating. At least for today, I feel pretty accomplished, and I need to try to keep it in mind for the next few days, get back into the habit–maybe not the 3-4 hour hours a day I was doing back in the summer time–but at least a solid hour or two…which mean my workout playlist needs a LOT of work.
Does anyone have any recommendations?
