Want to...

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

I want to post that I got back up on the wagon, and have been working out at least a little bit. But I haven't. I want to start this stupid bootcamp challenge again, from the top, and do the whole thing -- I have nearly enough days to finish it during my beach vacation. And even if I don't finish it, exercising even a little bit, I KNOW, will make me feel better about putting on a swimsuit. But I'm just not motivated.

Why was I able to do this during February and March, but am stuck now? I can't decide if I'm "going easy on myself," because life is fine the way it is, or if I'm making Excuses with a capital E.

  Struggling with the same thing. I'm putting in more activity in my chores around the house again, at least. You gotta start somewhere, right? :)

    I am going through the same thing. I was doing great in February and March and now I just don't have the same drive. Must be all this good summer food I want to eat! I think I just need to turn my mind back around to the fact that this is important and can not be brushed under the rug! I hope you get back on track! Keep Sparking!

Avalanche, concluded

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

I turned in the side project today, my parents' visit has ended, and lots of my other stressors from last week are now out of the way. Naturally I did not continue with the Boot Camp every-day workout challenge during all this. I have eaten like crap, too. I mean, I have "made unwise choices."

I'm trying to tell myself I am not a bad person, or a failure, for these things. Life is what it is. But I guess I have to climb myself back onto The Weight Loss Wagon today, though, if I really want it to happen.

Starting with my water -- when you get out of the habit, it's hard to get back into it! -- and this lovely green salad with black beans I'm having for my lunch.

Then I'll pick up where I left off on the Boot Camp thing, and do a 10-minute video at some point today.

Kate (my daughter) did get sick. Strep throat. So I'll be home with her tomorrow. "Working" from home, har har. Like I'll get anything done. Oh well, I'm trying to think positively about it and hopeful that I'll at least get in a workout while I'm there.

Otherwise, I'm feeling overwhlemed with activities. Baseball tournament for my 6yo, my parents are coming up for a visit, Mother's Day, this BootCamp Challenge which I want desperately to complete, and a poorly-thought-out side job, for which I could earn a lot of cash, but for which I seriously don't have the time. I am going to be working late into the next few evenings, I'm afraid. It was stupid of me to agree to it.

Better get off SP and get back to my day-job. GAH GAH GAH GAH GAH. emoticon

Day 1 of Boot Camp challenge, done!

Monday, May 02, 2011

Yesterday I went down to the basement with my 3-year-old, and she watched while I did the first Spring into Shape challenge video. emoticon She even did a few "jumping jacks," which can barely be classified as such but were so cute I could hardly stand it.

I have caught a cold and I felt pretty rundown most of the weekend, but I was glad I did those 10 minutes yesterday. She and I also took a 20-minute stroll outside, which isn't really GOOD cardio, but seeing how I'm sick, I think it's good enough. I'm on DayQuil and NyQuil and have my fingers crossed that SHE won't get sick -- she seemed feverish to me this morning.

All in a day's work.

    You did it! I am starting Day 1 today! I want to be just as successful as you were! (Minus the sickness! emoticon)

Hang in there. Hope you feel better soon.

Spring into Shape Bootcamp challenge!

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

I joined a SP challenge. I think I really need it, because I keep telling myself 'You have to really push yourself/change things to start seeing a noticeable difference," and yet I keep doing the same thing.

The challenge requires daily exercise. Yikes. I've tried that before and failed. But I'm hopeful I can do it with the good guidance provided, and if I fall, just GET BACK UP.


Here's to the Month of May! (eek!)

    I'm debating on joining. I'm worried about the time commitment to be honest. Good luck to all of those that have joined. All you can do is try and never give up!
