Blogging is back :D
Ok, so first fitness since I find that most fun
2/14: Turbo Jam (40 minutes); TJ Sculpt
2/15: Insanity Fit Test; Zumba
2/16: Insanity Plyomettric Cardio Circuit; TA Sequence I
2/17: Insanity Cardio Power & Resistance; Zumba
2/18: Insanity Cardio Recovery & Max Recover; NYC Ballet
2/19: Insanity Pure Cardio &Abs; Jog 30 minutes
I'm following my nutrionists portion guides and working on focusing less on calories and more on fulness ratings.
8 hrs comes naturally now after the Spark sleep challenge
I'll commit to group tonight, and every day for the rest of the week I need to do a mood log and commit to one DBT/CBT exercise per day.
For every day of wise-mind eating I get a small prize (I have a bag of goodies) and for every 4 days I get a slightly bigger prize (again, another goodie bag).

I want to report that I followed my plan from last week wonderfully! Yay!
1. I followed my exercise routine
1,B. By doing the Spark Bootcamp Challenge videos, as of Tuesday when I joined the team, and
1,A. By following the workout schedule I set for myself (I did make a few minor adjustments and lightened the load on Friday and Saturday since I felt I was burning too many calories- yup, I said it)
2. I slept about 8 hours each night :), felt great
3. And I ate in my calorie range, between 1500-1900 cals each day.
After every four days of wise, conscious eating I get to pick a prize out my goodie bag. So, tonight I'll be picking out another prize :)
School started this week, which for me means only 1 class and the comprehensive exams. I'll also be working two jobs, but I'm not worried since neither are loads of hours. Overall I feel good about this semester. The biggest challenges will be 1) Finding a job for once I graduate 2) Condo shopping in the city, and more seriously 3) a family member close to me is donating an organ, so going in for surgery soon 4) and my grandfather and law will pass soon from cancer.
There are certainly some big challenges on the road ahead, besides the stresses of school and such, but I feel more able than ever to embrace them. I feel more steady than ever before, and others are benefiting from that steadiness, not just me and my waistline.
For now, here's my plan for this week (it will be pretty redundant from last week- I'm going to become the most boring person on earth, repeating the same goals again and again to myself, but all so that I give myself the time to learn them, while at the same time interjecting them with new challenges them here and there to tweak, prod and stimulate change and growth)
1. Follow my workout plan for each day, as follows
1, A. The Spark Botocamp Challenge video each day
Sun.- Bootcamp video
Mon.- TA Cardio Dance (50min), TA post-pregnancy matwork (45min), Bootcamp video (10min)
Tues.- Bootcamp video (10min), Zumba class (50min)
Wed.- TA Cardio Dance (50min), TA post-pregnanc matwork (45min), Bootcamp video (10min)
Thurs.- TA post-pregnancy matwork (45min), Bootcamp video (10min)
Fri.- Zumba Cardio Party (42min), Bootcamp video (10min), TA post-pregnancy matwork (10min)
Sat.- Run/jog/walk hills and sprints (30min), Botocamp video (10min)
2. Sleep about 8 hours each night, as possible
3. Eat within my calorie range of 1500-1900 cals each day
Thanks for the support!!

1. I exercised! and enjoyed it :) (ie, I danced instead of the elliptical machine)
2. I ate within my calorie range (barely tho, hehe)
3. I thought 'two steps ahead'- ie, rather than thinking what would temporarily help me, I made decisions based on dreams and goals I have (does this decision get me closer to them?)
4. I went easy on myself- kind words, understanding, rather than judgment and meanness (like not thinking 'it's too late')

Yesterday in blogging I reflected on a lack of motivation I was experiencing. I felt at a loss for why I was feeling that way. Well, through the evening I wrote in my journal a bit and was able to figure out a bit better what was slowing me down. I had already hit on it in a previous blog, but I feel clearer now about the matter. I wrote about how I was feeling pretty discouraged about my prospects with actually seeing results and I was feeling less motivated about trying. I am feeling overwhelmed about getting back on track and am worried that it was already too late, the damage was done. It felt easier to assume that I wasn't even trying, by eating what I want, than to feel like I had actually been trying (ie motivated), but failing.
ie, I'm tired of feeling like a 'failure.' I want to feel like I am actually succeeding, but every way I turn I feel like I'm failing at meeting my goals. So what's the point of even trying?
Maybe I need to tone my sights down a little and move EVEN slower :)
Two steps forward, one step back.
