Ola el Sparkies!
Today I am blogging early because I'm on a late shift at work. I've woken up with sore calves after a good gym workout yesterday so I'm going to give the cardio a rest today and instead to some intense housework with the music at full volume!
I have to admit, although I had a good workout yesterday, I still am in no way a fitness fanatic. I don't know why but I just can't seem to enjoy working out although I know it needs to be done. Anyway, I've been trying to find more fun ways of getting the workouts in and I really wanted to join Zumba. I kind of rely on my friend Zoe to work out with. She too is in the 'Obese Category' and although her motivation levels usually aren't as high as mine, I can usually twist her arm into doing some fitness with me. I asked her to come to Zumba and she said it's not really her kind of thing so I resigned myself to just not going. And then I thought...'NO!' I am going to Zumba. And so I called a few workmates and was surprised to find that they'd be happy to come. And there it is...all booked for Sunday evening, my first Zumba class. I am so psyched!
I called my mother who is also on a diet. And although she doesn't wanna join Zumba, she said we can take a drive up to the mountains (About 20 miles north) and get some great hill-walking and power-walking in so I'm pretty psyched for that too! Yee ha!
I need to get some new workout tracks. I said before, I had to get XL mens because I'm so dam tall, those are the only ones that fit my legs but I wore them to the gym yesterday and they were so baggy that I felt like a giant marshmallow! Eeeeek!
Diet is going awesome. As I said I'm trying to incorperate new foods all the time so I don't get bored and yesterday I tried Weight watchers pizza which was pretty awesome. The frozen ones are a bit MING but I bought this one from the fresh pizza section and it was spicy chicken flavour...yum! It had about 450 cal and was still quite big so I was totally full after eating it. Excellent, think I'll stock up on those!
I downloaded Flirty Girl Fitness after seeing it on a Sparkfriends page and it looked really good. I gave it a try today but if I'm honest, I felt like a bit of a loser doing it, I don't know why. Maybe when I'm a bit skinnier, I'll give it another go.
So anyway, moral of the story. Extend your networks! Don't be held back at the first hurdle!
That'll all for now folks! Chin up soldiers! You can do this!!
