working on working out

Wednesday, April 02, 2014

I have been working out to a work out DVD since Sunday (so for three days now, I havent worked out yet today) and I feel pretty good. I want to see if I could go one month with working out to the video, especially because it has good leg exercises. I feel that I just need to add more cardio though but getting the time to do it is the issue.

Today should be a nice day.

    "getting the time" never happens, you have to MAKE the time.

I love my workout DVD's. I know I can spend time in my back yard and get a really good workout from just yard work, but there's something about a DVD that makes me come back day after day. Maybe it's that I can see what the move is that I can't seem to master, or that I can see them sweat too. :-)

Welcome back!!

Back again

Sunday, March 30, 2014

So today was that day where I looked down on the scale after neglecting it for some time and said Oh Shoot (or some variation of that). I haven't been doing well. I have been avoiding the responsibility of really taking care of myself.

I could make excuses. Many excuses. But I have been screwing up. And watching too much Girls on demand to actually be living.

So, the go to diet maybe is going to be possibly drinking those meal replacement shakes for breakfast and lunch and then eating a sensible dinner...this might last for a few days.

I should go and be productive. Yep.

So, I will try and try not to screw up.

Back again after several months

Sunday, September 29, 2013

Greetings bloggers and blog readers,

It's been a while since I last logged onto sparkpeople's website. A short summary of what has happened since I last logged in:
-my dad had a TBI, he's recovering though
-I got a new part-time job
-I work a good amount
-I have stopped working out and eating right
-also, I do not belong to a gym

So, overall things are scattered. I made a pot of vegetarian chili this morning and I have been digging into it since then. I went for a nice nature walk today and enjoyed the nice fall weather. I have work in a short while and I am preparing myself for a hectic overall day there.

Foodwise, I am working on eating healthier, at least trying to get my basic nutrients.

It's a journey and I am restarting it.

Balancing Moods

Thursday, April 25, 2013

Today was an interesting day. I'm noticing more and more than I am still dealing with a lot of unresolved issues. Case in point, today, for no reason whatsoever I felt like crying after class. I felt like I was about to start crying. I had to take deep breaths for a while to make sure that I kept myself in check. If someone had asked me how I was feeling I probably would have started crying on them. It's not good. I ended up driving home and just crying. I get this way at times, and I just find myself driving home and crying. It's not normal. I've been working on balancing my emotions for years now and I feel like I've made a lot of progress. After I came home I thought about what would make me feel better. Usually I would just eat or snack, but I decided to just hit the gym. I feel like I need to just make more positive choices when I start to feel sad and then see how I feel afterwards. I also need to limit time on facebook. I usually feel like crap after viewing it. My plan is to just view it in the morning and wish people happy birthdays and then just close it.

    I love your openness in this blog entry!!!! I've found myself crying a lot lately too... mainly due to stress, and well not feeling very loved lately... I hope you're have a better time now than you were when you wrote this....

    So the crying was related to unresolved emotional issues, and not being overtired? I ask, because that's how I can tell if I've had enough sleep... how quickly I am to cry in reaction to just life that day. PMS/hot flashes, grieving, being angry with someone, all those things will make me cry if I'm overtired.

I am glad to see you chose to soothe yourself with something other than food. I'm still working on that one, but it's daily work.

Let me know if you would like an extra shoulder to cry on. I have lots of room on my shoulders. *hugs*

    Aw, sorry it was a tough day! :( I really hope that little by little, things will begin to be resolved and it won't be so hard for you. Did it help going to the gym? I hope you can lay aside the cares & troubles of the day for now, and have a restful sleep tonight :) emoticon

Doing the work.

Monday, April 22, 2013

Today is all about doing the work.

Things accomplished today:
-met with boss, given review
-saw HR, sent HR an email to followup with a position
-took 2 exercise classes: body challenge (kicked my butt, I could feel my thighs) and pilates which felt more like a stretching class but it was a nice compliment afterwards
-I made fish with lemon juice instead of olive oil
-->I put my food intake my tracker and noticed that if I used the amount of olive oil that I usually use then I would have wasted over 500 calories just on olive oil! I'd rather eat a candy bar for that kind of calorie addition.
-I will go and finish up some work soon at school.

I need a career. I'm getting older. I am so close to finally having a masters degree and continuing on with life. That scares the crap out of me.

So, I decided that since my birthday is coming up and my metabolism is slowing, I need to make more of an effort to stay healthy and tone up. My thighs are bigger than I would like them to be. My body resembles a pear.

This week is all about doing the work.
