Sick :(

Saturday, January 14, 2012

Was planning a long run today, bu I woke up feeling sick so I slept in. Now I'm feeling better, so maybe I should go to the gym and hop on the elliptical for a bit. Decisions, decisions.

  Sometimes a little extra in the snooze category can do a body good!

Vegetarian Chili

Friday, January 13, 2012

I'm a big fan of chili. I think I make it about once per month during the colder months, even before I joined SP. The SP meal plan has an awesome veggie chili recipe. I never even thought about making veggie chili before but this one is really good. I add my own spices of course.


Day of rest

Friday, January 13, 2012

I did my minimum sparkpeople video today for the january challege but nothing else. My legs are exhausted, it's time for a break. Tomorrow I do yoga and rest my legs again. But saturday I'm scheduled for a long run.

    As I learned from overdoing it....our bodies do need rest to recover from strenuous exercise lest it become counterproductive....I was actually losing muscle for a while there when I was working out for hours a day. Adrenaline and endorphins were great but losing muscle is never good! Of course I also wasn't eating enough to keep up with the exercise...too much of a good thing isn't! Balance is key!

Well I thought I'd like the Zumba class, but I hated it! Zumba is definitely not for me! I can't dance and I was the worst person in the class. There was a break around the 30 minute mark and I bailed. I almost cried I was so frustrated. So I went upstairs to take out my frustration on the rowing machine. Well at least I got my cardio done.

    Thanks. My goal is to try every class at the gym at least once this month and then settle on a routine until Spring, then mix it up again in the Spring. So far I like spinning and yoga. I will probably do cardio kickboxing again but I'm not so into the teacher. The spin and yoga teachers are older and have way more experience.

    you poor thing! dont give up. zumba is awesome but its not fro everyone. you may feel silly and think you are not doing it right but you really are. as long as you keep moving thats whats important. im sure everyone else feels silly and aweful! i do zumba at home on my 360 game console. i love it because no one is watching me. if zumba is not your thing explore other options...maybe cycling???
