Exciting Night ^_^

Sunday, November 29, 2009

Last night was great. I went to the Fred Astaire Canadian National Dance Championships and it was great. It was only the awards ball, not the actual competition, but it was great. We got to do some dancing, and watch all the champions dance, and we got to see Eric Luna and Georgia Ambarian dance a few times. They were awesome, I swear she spent most of the time in the air ^_^ It was very exciting and I'm glad I got the chance to go. I was nervous about going because no one was going with me, but it wasn't too bad because I knew my instructors would be there. I had fun dancing too. I was there until midnight and then it took me an hour to get home. I was tired, but I didn't have to work today so I got to sleep in. Basically, it was a very long and very fun night ^_^ What's weird about that is that I never go out to parties or stay out late and I actually had fun. Some people even asked me to sit with them, the ones I've danced with at the practice parties. They were very nice, I was suprised though, I didn't expect anyone to care that I was alone. It was kinda nice.

    Dancing is one of the very best kinds of workouts. Besides burning calories, it raises our spirits because it's fun! Glad you had a good time!

I hate being tired

Friday, November 27, 2009

I have been so tired all week and I don't know why. Today is a little better but I could still go home and go to bed right now. Last night I wanted to go to the gym but I was so tired I didn't trust myself drivnig. Today I've taken some ginseng pills but it doesn't seem to doing much. I want to work out tonight but don't know if I'll be able to. I am getting 7-8 hrs of sleep each night, and I am using my stupid CPAP machine for my sleep apnea. Nothing seems to be helping this week. I've been having headaches too, but I think it's because I'm so tired.

I haven't lost any weight this week, in fact I've gained a pound. I've even tried high sugar drinks, didn't do anything, tho that may be partly why I gained. My eating has been not bad, not great as I never have the energy to cook or prepare anything right now.

I don't know what to do about it right now as I can't even make an appointment with my doctor until tuesday, they're closed to move their office. I'm actually hoping something is wrong with me so that the doctor can fix it. If anyone has any ideas I'd be happy to hear them.

On a more positive note, I am excited about going to the Fred Astaire Canadian National Dancesport Championships tomorrow night. I just hope I can stay awake for the whole thing. Otherwise I may need to get myself a room at a hotel there, it's an hour drive and that'll be too dangerous if I can barely stay awake.

Anyway, have a nice weekend everyone, and I'll let you know what happens with my excessive tiredness.

    How are you doing with your protein levels? I know when I feel kind of sluggish I will have a protein drink (Almased) & within 10 minutes I'm feeling a bit perkier. Also, are you drinking plenty of water to keep from being dehydrated?

Hope you find out what's causing the tiredness. Have a good weekend.

Going to the Gym

Thursday, November 26, 2009

I was going to cancel my gym membership, but I decided to downgrade it instead. It's half the price now and I can only go on Tues, Thurs and Sat. But that's ok, it's only $20/month and I'm usually busy other days anyway. So tonight I'm gonna go and do the Zumba class. The last time I went to the gym they only had Zumba at times I couldn't go, my hapkido was at the same time. On saturdays when I don't work I can go do the yoga class too. I'm not good at yoga as I'm not that flexible, but I think it will really help with the dancing and the hapkido so I hope I get to go on a fairly regular basis.

Last night at hapkido I had a really good workout. We did pushups and crunches and running and leg lifts and stuff like we always do. But then we did kicking drills and forms a lot faster than we nornmally do cus we didn't have that time left. So we did cardio for like an hour straight. It was great ^_^ and very tiring.

Well, have a nice day everyone!

Damage Control, sorta successful

Wednesday, November 25, 2009

Ok, so yesterday I was 4 lbs up since last weeks BLC7 weigh in. Today it's only 3 up so that's an improvement. Now I just need to work on losing this week.Today I'm sure I'll lose because I'm going to Hapkido and that's quite the workout. I'm always down the following day.

Admittedly, I weigh myself every day, but I don't get upset if I'm up a little for a day or 2. I find if I don't weigh myself every day I'll just be like it's ok I was good yesterday, or I'll be good tomorrow, today won't make much of a difference. So, I weigh myself every day to keep on track of where I'm heading. Hopefully always down ^_^ in the future.

I'm still stuck in that 10 lb range I can't seem to get past but I'm sure I soon will. I can't seem to get down past 325 and I'm at 329 right now so hopefully BLC7 will help me get there.

I'm excited about work today, this afternoon I get to go to a job site and see them install a foundation for a 100ft tower. I'm a little impatient to go but it's not til this afternoon, around 3 I think.

I had a good lesson last night with my new instructor. I learned a lot in an hour ^_^ Unfortunately we mostly worked on the Tango. It's not one of my favorites, mostly because I'm not good at it. For some reason, I feel very self conscious and insecure when doing the Tango. I am getting better though. Then we worked on the ChaCha which I like very much. He even changed one of the moves so I would like it more. I wonder what my other instructor will say when I go do my lesson with him next week. Hopefully I'll still be doing the Tango stuff well. It's very difficult for me, too many things I need to think about. The movements in the tango and the position of my head and feet and everything is very awkward for me still. I'm gonna see the new instructor every other week until my dance lessons at Fred Astaire are done, which will be in like 2 years because I'll be going every other week there too.

Sorry lol, I always go on about the dancing a lot ^_^ It's cus it's new still.

Have a nice day everyone!!!

  


Seriously stressful day

Tuesday, November 24, 2009

Ok, the people I work with are making my day very stressful today. Normally they're great fun to work with, but today everyone is telling me different things. One persons says do this, then someone else says no don't do that. So I made some mistakes, and I get very upset and stressed out when I make mistakes at work. They think I don't because I hide it well, but right now I just wanna say I'm sorry and leave for the day. It's a good thing the day's almost over. Otherwise I might be tempted to tell them I'm sick and go home.

Tonight at least should be good. I'm having a dance lesson tonight with a new instructor who seems to be a very cheerful kinda guy. Dancing always makes me feel good too.

I've done pretty well with my eating today. Staying on track so far ^_^ Hopefully I'll go down a bit in the morning so I don't have too much of a gain this week. As of yesterday morning I'm up 4 lbs. I'm concentrating on damage control for today because I won't lose 4 lbs by tomorrow morning.

Anyway, hope everyone has a wonderful week.

    I'm sorry you are having such a bad day at work. Just do the best you can do and if possible try to ignore everyone and do the work as you are supposed to do.

Good luck with your dance lesson. I love to dance and as a matter of fact that is how my husband and I met. We were both in a dance club and neither of us had partners so we became dance partners. We really enjoyed dancing and lost a lot of weight. I am hoping that sometime in the near future we can get back to dancing as we haven't been dancing in a long time because of his knee and finances.

Good luck on your weight loss journey. It will be difficult over the holiday weekend but we can do it. Take care of yourself.

Thiry
