Tonight I decided to do a little workout in my dorm room because it is POURING snow outside and I hate walking to the gym in the cold. I thought I would try out the little workout generator on Sparkpeople, just to see what would happen. Let me tell ya, those little workouts are no joke. I did the 60 minute full body dumbbell workout at this link:
I am already sore. Holy Moly. I knew I had a good workout because when I was in the shower tonight, shaving my legs, my legs were shaking while I was bending down to shave them. THAT is how I know I did good tonight. My muscles are sore and tired, but it's one of the greatest feelings ever.
Also, has anyone tried the couch to 5k app? I was thinking about doing it. Please know that I have NEVER been a good runner. My run is more like a walk with a hop in it and even after doing that, I get tired in like a minute. Sooo would anyone recommend me doing this?

These past couple of weeks have been the most stressful weeks of my college career. I have had so much to do and since I am in a practicum 4 days a week, there is not much time to do it all. I'm pretty much working full time, plus overtime, for free. So that is my life at the moment. This past week has been especially bad because I felt like I had no clue what I was doing. It's like I have been a social work major for 4 years yet I felt incompetent. It also doesn't help that my BIGGEST pet peeve EVER is feeling stupid. Therefore I am at my breaking point.
I felt the need to punch something. I was so upset about my eating habits, my lack of exercising, my grades, my time, my stress, my personal life, and my lack of competence that I was at my breaking point. Just a bad week. Tonight I MADE time for myself. I kickboxed like I never have before. I threw myself into the workout.
And I feel wonderful again.
I made some me time. Time where I did not have to think about school, work, boyfriends, friends, family, or anything else. Just focusing on what I was doing and imagining that I was kicking the hell out of all my problems when I kicked my foot in the air. I imagined that I was punching all of my problems straight in the face when I threw my fist. It was amazing.
Also I feel like I should write a letter to Jillian Michaels after this is all over. The woman is seriously an idol.

So this week I have to go out of town for a training for my job, in which I have to stay in a hotel and everything. I leave today and I won't be back until Thursday. I am afraid that I will have to eat fast food all week. This is not only expensive, but also it obviously won't do anything to help me with my calorie count (or fat count...or any count). It's just not healthy. Straight up heart attack in my mouth unhealthy. Because I am sort of a picky eater, I don't like salad. So that proposes an issue for me when going out to eat. I know that some menus provide healthy things like yogurt, but I can't eat yogurt for a week straight.
So that is my dilemma. I hate fast food, I hate healthy versions of fast food, and I don't want to eat it.
