Wow didn't realise I hadn't blogged for such a long time!
I've only just got back to working out, I did my 45 minutes cardio kick workout today, and it was good to be back in the zone :) Even though I was being lazy for a week, it felt good to get back moving, it makes me happy. Being lazy makes me miserable!
I've been sticking to a decent calorie amount, even though I don't actually need to lose any weight now, I still think I need to keep a really good eye on what I'm eating, as its so easy for me to put weight on!
Had a great holiday, and even though I didn't work out, we were on the 13th floor, and 95% of the time I used the stairs. Nearly killed me haha, but I went up them maybe half a dozen times a day. Plus I did a tiny bit of swimming. I don't swim, I don't like deep water but I did a little bit, plus loads of walking. And I ate pretty well, nothing too naughty.
But yes, now I am back, and back to ''normal''.
And I have a new job! I start on Monday, working in a shop, so thats a huge relief :)

I have just significantly reduced my fitness goals, but only for the next week. I'm really struggling and I'm not working out, plus I'm going away tomorrow for four days in the sun, so my calories will need to go down a little bit.
Thats fine, I'm happy doing that just for this one week. Its just the way it is and as soon as I get back I will be back on that fitness train!
You guys giving me encouragement really helps. Thanks guys :) xxx

my moods are all over the place at the minute, and its my fitness and diet that of course suffers. I mean, it doesn't help that my period is due (just in time for my holiday in the sun of course haha), but my head is just not right at the minute, and I have to accept that sometimes I just can't always do the right thing.
Hopefully I can fit in a workout later today (I could do one now but I really cannot muster the motivation, and I know that when I feel like this, I won't put in the right amount of energy, and I won't enjoy it at all), but if not, then its not like I am going to all of a sudden put ten pounds on and lose all my muscle tone lol.
This is just the way it goes sometimes unfortunately, but it doesn't last for long, even with everything on my mind, I am usually quite a positive enthusiastic person (even though I am totally the opposite right at this minute haha), and I always work myself through to the other side within a day or two, or even later the same day.
But yes, if I eat too much and don't do any exercise today, stuff it, its not going to kill me.

so I only managed to fit in my tae-bo workout, but thats fine, I also did a little walking this morning with my eldest son, and then I painted my youngest's bedroom (with a brush lol, not a roller, so it took longer and required more effort, but its only a small room so it only took me two hours)
Quite an energetic two hours though, with moving furniture around and putting things out of the way then back where they belong. Haven't logged that, so we'll call it a bonus lol.
I have a job interview at a pub tomorrow, and its quite a decent bike ride as far as I can tell looking at google maps.
Have to get this job, at least for now, not working is really depressing me!

I've been in a bit of a low mood these past few days with not being able to find work, not seeing my fella and stuff like that, so yesterday I was really lazy, after having a day off two days ago, I did it again yesterday!
But I've made up for it today by doing 90 minutes of workout. I did both my usual dvd's, and on some of the moves on the cardio kick one, I used heavier weights, which challenged me even more. I usually use two 3kg dumbells for punches and leg work etc, but today on some of the leg stuff I used two 5kg ones instead. They are so heavy lol!
Anyway feel much better for doing that today. Tomorrow I'm going to try get in another jog once my little boy gets picked up by his dad, plus I will do my tae-bo workout as well.
Well, thats the plan anyway lol.
