Still At It!!!

Friday, July 11, 2014

So today I woke up at 7:00am and got ready to work out by 8:00am! It was awesome.

I did a short length Zumba World class, and decided to do a few extra songs on the end. I love my Zumba, but what made them think a Short Class should be 20 minutes (or about 7 songs), a Medium class 40-45 minutes and a Full Class at 60 minutes is beyond me. I would love a good 30 minute class, especially since the first song and the last song are always a warm up/cool down which rotates between 2 songs each (four total).

After that I did Day 3 of BodyRock's Transformers Challenge. It was a new trainer, and let me tell you, that will be my go to butt workout from now on! IT WAS AWESOME!

I really enjoyed it, because it was hard enough to work me, but not so hard that I couldn't do it, like yesterday's workout with Shawn. I always have issues doing Shawn's workouts because of the intense upper body strength needed in the body weight exercises. But this was all lower body. Awesomeness!

If you guys want to check it out, they have it on their Pinterest page under Transformers board! A real winner for a lower body, butt, HIIT workout!

I am still keeping busy, and still miraculously still in keto! I am still depressed, and stressed out, and wanting to kill someone, but I am doing better in the fact that I am not thinking about hurting myself, all the time. Just when I feel like I want to kill on of the managers at work do I think about that, which is an improvement.

I am thinking tomorrow and for sure Sunday are going to be rest days, which means I am going to change up the Challenge of BodyRock's rest days a bit. But they have the rests days on days I am usually off, so it works out well. Monday I'm off, so that will be a huge workout day, plus lunch with Dad! Tuesday will be another rest day because I will be at work! And Wednesday and Thursday will be fun workout days because I'm off! Weeee! I need some time off.

I need a vacation. I need to go to Schlitterbahn this Saturday with my best friend who I miss a ton! I need to go visit my other bestest friend up North too.

I am really dreading going to work. That's never a good thing. I wish I knew how to look for another job. I really lucked out on this one to be honest. Maybe I should join Linked In or whatever that thing is. I have enough money saved that if my parents want, I can go back to school for a while, but then I will be out of health insurance, which sucks. Okay, stop thinking MISHA!

So, better get back to getting back to work. Hopefully tonight I will have enough energy to fix me some spaghetti squash for dinner!

Have a good one guys, and keep SPARKING!

Another SMASHED Workout!

Thursday, July 10, 2014

To be honest, even though my work schedule is all wonkie, I am really enjoying it!

I only had to clean two days, which means I have today and tomorrow to have enough time to workout before I go to work at 10:15am. I even can workout on Saturday if I can get rid the dad, and Sunday if my parents don't mind me doing so. But I need a rest day, so I am thinking that will be Sunday.

Next week I am off Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, which means major workout days and not my quick 40 minutes to an hour workout. But like full Zumba, BodyRock, extra ST and yoga/stretching kind of days. Then I go in late (10:15) on Friday July 18, which means I can do something similar that I did today. That Friday, July 18, is the start of my regular schedule again. So it's back to working out hard on Monday and Tuesday, and I guess workouts at lunch for Wednesday and Thursday, quick workout in the morning on Friday, and rest days for Saturday and Sunday. Though I do clean on Saturdays, so not so much rest there.

I am really trying hard to workout and stay in keto. The first part is so much easier than the second. Oh well. Keto is being mean right now, and my body is just not wanting to go into it. I wish I had time to start making lots of keto goods, but I really don't.

I did however make this Pinterest Avocado fries thingy. Too much onion, and I didn't care for the pepper, but over all it, a keeper.

Here's to another day at work! May it be a heck of a lot less stressful that it was the past two days!

Bye and keep up the Spark people!

Back In The Game...

Wednesday, July 09, 2014

My plan of working and focusing on my health journey and keeping busy are definitely working at keeping the bad thoughts at bay.

I am just working trying to keep busy for the most part. The best way to keep busy is to focus more on me.

I woke up at the usual time this morning. I got ready, and found I still had time before needing to go to work because I wasn't packing my lunch today. So I flossed. I am really weird about certain things like this. Normally I would only floss at night, which makes the most sense, but now I am just like, better to floss every day in the morning (when I have time and energy) than to never floss at all. So the morning are my new flossing time.

I went to work at got done with all my cleaning by 11:00 am. Just barely, but enough time to get to the front desk and take calls. I was busy right up until my lunch.

And I came home, changed, SMASHED the new BodyRock Pinterest 30 Day "Transformers" Challenge Day 1! It's not as long as the first real time I did, which was around 40 minutes to an hour, but it is just as intense at 14 minutes of butt kicking HIIT training. So it's short enough to do durning my hour break and still eat, but still a workout.

I'm not going to lie, I really didn't push myself that hard. And in fact, I am not planing to push myself hard at all. Anything is better than nothing. I am keeping busy in body, thus in mind. Which is all that I need to do now.

After my lunch break, I went back to work. I really hate being the only one up there, thank goodness my new coworker is back tomorrow. Work is stressful, especially with the breeder case we had. So many phone calls! Gosh!

Came home and even made some "Avocado Fries." There were okay, but I think just salt and garlic powder would be best next time. And I made some sausage. At least I ate dinner today!

Now, it's time for bed. Weeee!

So let's hope I can keep this up for a while, because I am determined to stay on track until I am at my goal everything!

Have a good one guys!

I'm Getting Worse Again...

Monday, July 07, 2014

Have you ever seen "Perks of Being A Wallflower"? It's a great, but sad movie. Any one with any kind of mental illness knows the phrase, "I'm getting worse again." And that is exactly what is going on with me.

My mom claims it my period. As I haven't had my period in 4-5 months, I highly doubt I am PMS for weeks on end. Don't worry, it's common with PCOS not to have a period. So no, I don't need to go to a doctor for that.

I am just depressed. Stressed out. And tired. Plus, I am just plain pissed off at myself for giving in to temptation, like cupcakes at work, cookies at the store, little things like that. It seems nothing tastes good, or gives me pleasure but highly sweetened baked goods.

So my weight is back up. And I am planning to get serious. But the depression makes getting serious so very very hard. I think, what's the point? It's always what's the point anymore.

I am going to try to keep my mind busy. And not think about all the crumby things. I am going to start meditating in hopes my stress will decrease. And in hopes of keeping busy, I am really going to focus on cleaning and organizing the house.

I am going to workout more, eat better, cook more, clean more, unpack and organize more. Meditate more.

And even though I am already worn out and depressed, and need a freaking break, I am going to ignore that and press on. Hopefully I'll not only get back on track, and find the dream body that I am so close to, but also just put all my depressiveness on the back burner until it's gone.

That should work, right? Right? At least I will be sleeping well.

The only downside to this is the fact that my schedule is messed up for the next two weeks. I don't deal with change well, so maybe this is a good time or maybe this is the worse time to try something new. Oh well.

Off I go to do something productive.

I also plan on Sparking more. I need to track more, and also stay in touch. I don't think it really holds me accountable of anything like that, but it helps me have an outlet in things that I don't talk about with my parents or my limited friends.

Well, time to get started in this. Busy Misha to the....Distraction? That works right!???

Have a good one guys!

    I'm struggling too right now. The best we can do is to just try to hang in there until things get better. When things get better, it gets a lot easier to get more done. So, don't give up, and do your best! Even if your best is not as good as what you think it should be. The bar for my best is really very low right now... lol

    I know how that goes. I got worse earlier this year and it just wasn't working without medication. Now I'm on lexapro in the morning and remeron at night. Two different anti depressants. My weight has gone up since I started though but my doctor said he'd rather have me functioning than not. emoticon
