I have been gone for a while due to school. It was hard for me to log in because of homework, taking care of my daughter, etc. But now, the semester is close to ending and all major assignments have been completed
I have been working out everyday! I am so happy about that. I was going to the gym everyday, but I decided that I love running and cardio. So I will be going to the gym two days out of the week, running once a week, cardio workouts (Zumba, Spark workout videos,etc) 3 times a week.
I want to start off running once a week and slowly increase it to everyday. With summer coming up, I will have a lot more time to run.
I am excited about this journey I am on. I am glad that I am living a healthier life.

After I had my daughter, I was back to my pre-pregnancy weight. Actually, I was a few pounds lighter. It was disappointing to see that I couldn't fit into my old jeans. I thought I would fit in them considering the fact that I weighed less. I realized that I had that extra 'fat'or 'tummy' you get after having a baby. I was so upset.
Since I started SparkPeople, I have been eating healthier and exercising. I tried on one of my old pair of jeans and to my surprise...they fit! They fit a little tight, but I was able to button it up! Before, I couldn't even do that. I am so happy!
Now I am more determined and motivated to eating healthy and exercising! I'm super excited!

Tomorrow I start school. I am excited, but I am not to happy with having to go to school everyday. I have always scheduled all my classes to be on Tuesdays and Thursdays. However, the education classes that I need to take, all seem to be at the same time on Tues/Thurs for this semester. Oh well, I just have to suck it up
I decided to do a Zumba workout today. Instead of doing a 20 minute workout, I decided to do the 45 minute one. I got to say that it was tough. The first 30 minutes of the workout was great, but I struggled with the last 15 minutes. I just wanted to see if I could do it. Next time, I am going to do a 20-30 minute Zumba workout and build up to the 45 minute one. I don't want to overdo myself. Well I hope everyone has a great day!

Today was a blah day. I guess the reason for my mood is the weather-it has been raining on and off. I was a bit disappointed when I saw that I went over my calorie intake goal.
This is the first time since I started my program that I went over my calorie intake goal. I asked myself, 'why did I let myself make unhealthy choices?'' But, then I thought, 'It's okay. This is going to happen here and there. I just need to try my best to make better choices.' To lift my spirit, I read a few inspirational quotes and felt much better.
Even though I wasn't feeling energetic, I was determined to workout today. I did a 20 minute class of Zumba Fitness Core and a single song on Zumba. After I finished my workout, I felt so energized! I am proud of myself! I didn't let my mood stop me from working out.
I know that there are going to be days where I may feel tired or 'not up to it', but I know now that I will feel better after that workout. I hope that all of you never give up! 'Til next time, have a great day!
