For the last couple months, my routine has consisted of the arc trainer, running on the TM, biking occasionally, and working in ST with some of the stationary machines or doing kettle bells. I guess it was alright for my body.. but mentally I struggled and it bored me! Before I knew it, my 2 hours of daily exercise trickled down to 30 minutes every other day. This was not good for many reasons but the primarily one is that I noticed I have been struggling with my depression more. *big sigh*
So, instead of fighting the boredom, I decided with the new year, I would throw the old routine. As of next Monday, I will be starting a 6 AM Spin Class! On my winter break! I think I may just be crazy! I do not need to be anywhere until 3 pm, at best, and I am choosing to get up at 5 AM!!! in order to be at class at 6 AM! Have I mentioned I struggle from getting my butt out of bed for 8 AM classes?!! Oh, boy..
So, why am I doing this?
I need to get into routine BEFORE classes start again on January 24th! Also, I need to start a whole NEW routine. And, I do love starting my day with a good workout!
Wish me luck! I already have that seed of doubt wondering if I can wake up and GO!

Hope everyone had a good Christmas, if you celebrate. Overall, I think I did. Besides eating, LOTS! Just because I have lost a chunk of weight, it does not mean I like food any less. Honestly, I feel like I like food more.. like I savor the food I shouldn't have and love the fruits and veggies even more! I went a bit crazy on Christmas day... oops. Tomorrow is my weigh in so we will see how much "loving" food cost me. Putting the food aside (like I should have done yesterday), I thought many of you would be happy to know that I got pepper spray for Christmas. Happy Running! And, it's even pink!
Moving on... to goals! Big surprise, right?! Okay, maybe not.. but here they are anyhow!
-Make goal weight of 150 (So close, but SO far away!)
-Run SIX 5Ks (I did two in '09, and four in '10)
-Run a 10K race (Sounds daunting but feel like I need to move to the next step!)
-Pay off credit card (Just cuz it needs to go!)
-Count calories again
-Focus on drinking water
Last month, I fell out of exercising and counting calories everyday and I am hoping January will help me get back into the groove! I need to before classes start again! I am thinking of taking a 6 AM Spinning Class at the YMCA. That means getting up around 5 AM!

Today, I was feeling alot of feelings - lonely, sad, frustrated, disappointed, excited - which I just ended up feeling really crabby.
Anyhow, I was eating lunch alone in the cafeteria. When this guy that I have seen around approached me and started to talk to me about a class we had together like three semesters ago. I started to wonder if he was going to try to pick me up.
It was even better than that! He asked about my weight loss.. you know how much, and how I did it. Than, he was telling me about how he is trying to lose weight and stuff... and asked ME for advice! As I wanted to hand him a business card I didn't have, I realized I really could enjoy being a personal trainer and LOVE it.
Anyhow, I am trying to focus on that... and going on our first official date with Nick who I haven't seen for five days!!!

Since starting to count my calories again.. so like three days ago.. I feel like today is the first day I am in range again!
With all this calorie business, it got me to thinking about how I need to have new goals and even rewards. Right now, I don't really have any new goals besides losing the next ten pounds. For me, that would mean.. weighing 170. I think I am going to set a reward for that to. Something I know I should do but like never do.
I have decided that once I see 170 in the evil little scale... I am throwing out the majority of my undies. No, I am NOT going commando but rather buying sexy undies. Part of it is for my BF but also for me. I feel sexier and more confident with sexy intimates. So, why not?
I'm worth it!!!

Holy moly! I can't stop eating! HELP?!!!
It started yesterday... I just munched and munched.. on healthy foods like carrots and such. I am SO glad I threw out those cookies a few days ago. I don't get full and have no stopping point right now. It is like I have been starving and haven't ate for years. The word "no" is no longer in my vocabulary!
What in the world is going on!?!!!
Well, I know I was stressed earlier about my new relationship. You know how it is with all those questions. I think the main one is... will it last? Beyond that, it is graduation today. I tend to get sad about that everytime... with people moving on. When this happens, I don't hear from them again.
Well, that's that!
