The sleepies.

Thursday, March 22, 2012

Have you ever had that feeling like in the middle of the day, or at the beginning of the day or just when ever, where you just can't stop yawning, or you know for a fact you could sleep standing up right where you are. I call it the sleepies. Sometimes I get the sleepies regardless if i have had an adequate nights sleep, or three cups of coffee and 6 5 hour powers ( alright i may be exaggerating). The worst is at work.

I work at a restaurant for anyone who doesnt know. if I happen to be working a double shift, I for some reason get what i call the midshift sleepies. I feel like i can't get to my tables quick enough, and I struggle to keep up with everything, while yawning yawns at record pace.

But the worst part, and the point of my entire blog, is getting the sleepies before you workout. Every morning I take my child to day care, and then I come back for a few minutes right before i go see my trainer or get my morning workout routine in. But if I get the sleepies before that time, i will make every excuse not to go, and go right back to bed, when i know for a fact that if i go workout i will get rid of the sleepies and actually be way more energized for the day.

the point that I have realized through my sleepies this week , is that i need to stop making excuses, and this is one of them. A good work out will do so much for your day.. What excuses do you have?

  I get the sleepies too. Turned it out it was because my iron levels were extremely low. I found if I work out - it actually helps me be more alert. I work for an IT company so some days it is easy to say - well if I skip my workout I can get more done on a project. Usually I end up not getting anymore done because I am struggling to fight falling asleep.

Keeping it going,,,

Thursday, March 08, 2012

So my trainer's wife is being induced today (as well as my best friend,, crazy ) and he will not return until the following week. I 'm thinking there goes my motivation to get out to the gym while hes gone. Now I have decided that I can keep it going just as hard by myself.. So after my workout today, I took my notebook, and wrote down every thing we do usually during the week, and after I am finished on here I am going to make a plan for the week to do the same workout by myself, and I now have two friends coming to the gym with me on a regualr basis, so we are now going to be doing our own boot camp work outs!! Maybe if this works out well, maybe I dont need him;) Nah I love him, can't leave him. But now I can keep motivation when it is personally not there!!!!

    Keep it up while your trainer is absent and knock their socks off when they're back!! You can do it!

Have a great weekend!

Day 43

Monday, February 27, 2012

So I had one of those weekends, where nothing seemed to go right, and my diet and exercise went out the window with the weekend, but when I hopped on the scale today , I realized I had lost more weight!! The moral is I will not beat myself up anymore, b/c if you just keep going the progress will start to add up!!!

I am helping out my sis today at her law office, and I have come to the realization that i need to take time off from serving and get my resume out there,, I am loving the desk job. I know I have a degree in criminal justice, and Psych, but even the secretary job would be nice now,, I think it would bring routine to the day.

I am waiting for my husband to finish undergrad before I go to law school, but I am frightened that I am losing more knowledge by the day, and that when i get into law school, I will have to relearn alot, unless I can find a para legal job soon..

    Congrats on the weight loss! Consistency really does count. I have found if I am on plan 80% or so of the time, I see results. Just keep moving forward, and no beating yourself up allowed!

I hope you find what you are looking for in a job. You may forget some of what you learned, but it's like riding a bike, once you get back into it, the knowledge and skills come back.

Have a great week!

Day 39

Thursday, February 23, 2012

I havent made great strides in weight loss, that I have noticed yet, but I love the feeling of working out, I actually feel that under that gut there are abs! At least a 2 pack!

Moving on, so I have several friends I keep trying to get to come with me to work out, out of the 4 , i have got one to come last week, and cant get her to come since. It is amazing the excuses people come up with to tell you that they arent coming to work out. It makes me wonder how many of those excuses I used to come up with to keep from being healthy.

I think its b/c deep down alot of are afraid of the what will happen if we truly push ourselves. afraid that if it doesnt work out will it be a waste of time, will they be a failure.
Or could be a lack of care , like they have better things they could be doing or eating.
What I hear the most from my friends is "I really need to get into shape or lose weight", and then nothing happens.
For me, i grew tired of hearing myself say those things to others, or explaining to others why I gained my weight back, so I have decided there are no excuses when you can spend so much time talking about what you need to do, or what your dreams are, when you could already be on the path to success!


Back in stride!

I lost 4 lbs over the last two weeks!!! Yea me!! And I am back to wanting to workout especially when I see my trainer. yesterday I was like, Has it been 45 min already? And today I finally talked a friend into trying my trainer out! I have had several friends say they would love to come workout with me, but she is the first, so I am super excited!

Instead of the ususal chocolates for V-day, I recieved I giant boquet of Stargazer Lilies! Much better and I dont have to look at a giant box of candy!, and this year I have to work unfortunately, but i think its a good thing, b/c now I don't have to go out to eat and try to analyze everything at the restaurant! Happy Valentines Day everyone! emoticon
