Do I Hear Excuses?

Sunday, April 13, 2014

It's incredible how fast time passes. I have been back in school for a couple months and even though I log in daily I feel like I have been missing out on something. I love being back in school and meeting new people, but it is so hard to follow a routine if you are so busy with studying. I have had a hard time getting any workouts in. I usually did great for a couple days and then there were days with so much homework or when I was just too tired that my old lazy self just said it would be ok to lay on the couch and do nothing or to eat unhealthy food. The short days of winter and the bad weather wasn't helping much either, so I didn't loose any more weight, which is discouraging. I know these are all excuses and I can't blame any one but me because I was obviously the one who was not able to organize my 'new' life so that I will find time to continue my journey. But since I try to be more positive I can be proud to say that at least I didn't gain any weight and was pretty good in maintaing the last few months.

So now that I have a new schedule and the days are longer I'm hoping that I will be able to start my weight loss journey again and somehow get more organized in general. I do feel like I am a big construction site that needs so much work done and it is not only the weight loss I have to work on. I sometimes wonder if it is just me or if it is normal that studying in your 30s is not as easy as it was back in high school or in your early 20s. Maybe it is because of all the obligations you have, but I noticed that it just harder now. Maybe it is because I wasn't used to it any more, but I hope I will find some better ways to be more efficient. The last couple years I have missed out on so many things and I know that school is very time-consuming but I do want to enjoy life to the fullest. emoticon

    Maybe squeeze in some reading studying while on the treadmill or elliptical machine?

I've having hard time fitting in my exercise routine with my long hours at work lately.

Still Alive :-)

Wednesday, November 13, 2013

Wow, it has been such a long time since I posted, so I thought it was time for a quick update. I recently started going back to school and I didn't think I would be that busy, but I enjoy it even though it is kinda hard to get used to studying again, but I made some great friends at school and that always make everything easier even though my major is more difficult and time consuming as I thought it would be. But it is still better than staying at home and hoping to find a decent job with my other degree (there are basically no jobs in that field in my area).
Anyways, I am still checking this website daily, but I am not as active as I used to be because I am so busy with homework and other things that I only log in to get my Sparkpoints and use my trackers.
Unfortunately, my new schedule makes it quite hard to run more than two or three times a week because it is dark by the time I get home and there are no lights on my trail. On the other hand I walk a lot now and I hardly ever take the car to school so I count this as a form of exercise even though I don't log those walks as activity.

Overall I can say that I do see positive changes if I compare myself to the person I used to be about a year or two ago. I am by far more positive and active. I have lost a few dress sizes, even though it is quite ridiculous that I have clothes sizes ranging from xl to s and they all fit just fine. Of course, I prefer wearing my 's' clothes even though they are larger than 'normal' clothes in that size, but sometimes you just need this as a confidence boost LOL.
I also had a couple people telling me that I look so much better now that I have lost some weight and just today I had a neighbour asking me what diet I was on and what my secret is. I told her that there really is no secret. I just learned to focus more on what kind of food I am eating and I pay so much more attention to the quality of my food.

Anyways, I have to get back to my homework. Hope everyone is doing well. Keep sparking emoticon

30 Day Shred- All Over Again

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

A few days ago, I would have finished the 30-Day-Shred if I hadn't been super sick like two weeks ago. I had such a bad cold and felt so weak that I got even exhausted from walking to the bathroom. Of course, I found like million excuses for not continuing it once I felt better, but this week I decided that I would restart the 30-Day-Shred again and hope that this time I will master it (as well as the pushups). And I do know that this workout gets results because in the last four weeks I lost over 5inches and like 6pounds. I know it could have been better but I didn't really workout for like two weeks and I didn't eat too well either (Easter candy emoticon ).

    Glad you're feeling better! Good for you not giving up & going back starting over to get it right. I never fully finished either. I've jumped around & been trying some other things (currently doing hip hop abs). I need to try to give it another week or so, but I will definitely be going back to Jillian. I miss her & I am just not seeing the results I did before. So maybe next month I can get back to my 30 day shred also. emoticon
