I've been working at Job #2 a lot less lately. Which I'm totally okay with. It's my 'fun money'.
So, I got a free 7-day trial to a gym I used to go to and I've taken Body Combat twice and tonight I plan on trying Zumba with an instructor I've never been to. I'm excited to see what it's like. I plan on becoming a member this week, when my trial is up.
Last week I went to Body Combat on Thursday evening and I was feeling pretty tired, my arms were shaking and all that good stuff. So Saturday morning I was planning on going again, buuut...I couldn't lift my arms...they were nothing but dead weight! Needless to say, I didn't go on Saturday, but I did go again last night!

I hit a milestone yesterday. This is the last year in my 20's. It's kind of scary.
HOWEVER, I got some money for my birthday and I'm putting that toward a gym membership, I just have to decide WHERE now. We have the YMCA here, and it just seems ridiculously out of my price range, even though I know there's income based options, I just can't see it coming down THAT much. I don't know. There's definitely research that's going to be involved.
I hate that I want to go to the gym in the summer. Maybe it's the accountability of having paid for the membership?
Speaking of accountability...I need some. So anyone who wants to, should asked me when the last time I worked out was......because as of today, it was in June.
I'm terrible at cooking. I make some really delicious food. And I CAN cook. I'm actually really good at it...I just don't WANT to. The kitchen hot and I'm tired.
I'm good at over-eating. I NEED everything pre-portioned. Even if I do it myself. I just NEED it. And I NEED to be better at not just grabbing things because they are pre-portioned. I need to count my calories, because even if it's healthy, it's still not going to work if I eat ALL the healthy food at once and overdo it on the calories! (-almost- a little revelation there...)
I need to change my f-ing attitude in general AND toward food. It's not my problem solver. It's my crutch, and it keeps me broken.
I am stronger because I know my weaknesses.

So yesterday I got home from work, put in a load of laundry, took some chicken out of the freezer to defrost for dinner. I decided I needed to go for a walk to clear my mind even though it was VERY hot out and my legs are still very much burned on the back from a trip to the beach. I needed it.
So anyway, I got to my 1.5 mile mark and turned around to go back home, and I jogged across the street to get out of the way of traffic, and just kept jogging for the rest of the block. I HAVEN'T DONE THAT SINCE HIGH SCHOOL. Of course I was incredibly winded, but that's besides the point. I RAN. ON PAVEMENT. VOLUNTARILY. And I was okay with it. It's just so. weird. I'm going to try it again in a couple days when the weather clears up (it's raining).
Today is a 15 hour day. Then my mom is coming to stay with me because she has some classes and if she didn't stay with me, it would be a 2 hour drive starting at 6 AM, and then class. I couldn't let that happen because I'm a good daughter :)
It's supposed to rain for the next couple days here, we need it desperately, but I'd rather it was summer already. Here's to hoping it ends soon!

How does one find motivation to work out after (even before) a 15 hour day? Would you take that day off? How can you build a workout streak when you have to take 1-2 days off a week because you work retail after sitting at a desk all day? I can't, in my mind, count working retail as a legit. workout.
I'm struggling with this today.
On the bright side, it's my 3 year anniversary today at my job! I now get 2 weeks of paid vacation!
