I got new colors and a new background for my Sparkpage! I am ready for summer!
The Zumba instructor didn't show up tonight. :( that was sad. But I did talk to one of the ladies in the class for a little bit. That was happy. I need to make some friends. :) I did go home and work out, though! I didn't really want to, but I DON'T want a hole on my nearly full sticker chart!!
And I had mozzerella sticks for a snack after school. I was really hungry! But I had over a thousand calories left, and I still have 600 for dinner, and I already know I'm having a bunch of broccoli, so everything will be okay. It's okay if I have cheesesticks once in a blue moon. That's part of the lifestyle change!

Today is not good so far, but I think it will turn out okay in the end.
WARNING! WARNING!! TMI SECTION!! I'm on Seasonique birth control, which means I don't do periods very often, but when I do, I remember how hoooooorribbble it is! I've got the worst cramps I can remember and I feel so sick! My body just falls apart and these times and doesn't work at all, it feels like! I was late to school this morning because of it. But hopefully I'll see some movement on the scale after this is all over with. OKAY, TMI SECTION OVER!!!!
I did a new Zumba video yesterday-the Live one from the first set of DVD's. It was fun to do something different. I really want to get Exhilarate! It's on my Amazon wishlist if anyone wants to spend some extra money on a random person. :)
I'm so glad that today is my easy work out day... only 20 minutes of pilates. I love pilates, it's so stretchy!! :) I do wish I could find my longer DVD though. I have the old Mari Windsor set from like 10 years ago. WOW, I can't believe it's that old! I also have a 10 minute solution one that I can't find, either. That one actually might be here at school.....woo hoo!!! Found it!!! I love the flexibility section on this one... it's very relaxing.

I've set all these goals for myself in the past that have come and gone. First, I wanted to lose weight and run a half by March 2012--didn't happen.I wanted to look good on our recent trip to Europe and not hate most of the pictures--didn't happen. I wanted to be at my goal before I turned 30-April 2012--didn't happen.And before I turned 29, and 28, and 27, and 26...before I got married, before I changed jobs, before this, before that....It makes me sad to think of all the opportunities I have missed out on because I didn't follow through. I just want to kick myself when I think that I WOULD be at my goal weight now if I had kept it up. Or at least I'd still be almost to 200 if I hadn't gained it all back.
Now I have a goal to lose 20 pounds before I come back to school in the fall, a goal to run a half in December (I've got a friend who is going to make me!), a goal to be under 200 forever come December, and a goal to be at my ideal weight by the end of next school year. I'm so tired of seeing these goals come and go.I want this to be the last time I have to do this. I don't want to lose weight anymore. I want it to be gone and I just want to be healthy and only have to worry about staying healthy.
And it has to come with the real lifestyle changes. I just don't need fast food. Ever. Not healthy and too expensive. I won't get to drive through wherever I want because I'm skinny. I will be skinny because I don't drive through wherever I want. I don't get to buy chips and full calorie mochas because I am skinny. I will eat a few chips and get low cal mochas because I am skinny. I will be one of those people that makes other people crazy because I never eat at fast food with them. :)

Well, I'm about to start week 3 of my challenge. If I will just make myself go change and do my workout. Today is supposed to be JM's Yoga Meltdown, but I'm really dreading it. It's hard! But then I also just got Coach Nicole's new DVD and I haven't tried that out yet. But I kind of feel like I'm copping out if I don't do YM. So I guess I'll do it. Sheesh. I'll know I'll be glad after I do it.
EDIT: So I did it, and yes, I feel much better! I even went lower on those dratted chataranga push ups and this time I was able to do a few unmodified rolling side planks. So I am improving!!
