I have to keep reminding myself lately... Um HELLO Steph, do you want this or not? What the heck are you doing?
I want the body. THE body. Hah, i just mean a body. My body, that i can be proud of my hard work and stand tall. Don't get me wrong - i am very proud of how far i've come of course. Now i want better. I want what i wanted back when i was 15 - when i was athletic. I want the athletic body that makes people think "oh yeah she's definitely into her sports/physically active/athletic". I want the physical activity to show.
I'm waffling now - sorry.
I had a really up week, week before last, then a down week, and now i'm back to up. I am inwardly challenging myself to stop and make the right decision. I so wanted pizza on my way home tonight. I wanted to skip the dreaded-burpee workout and eat pizza. I got home and changed and then smiled to myself while i was doing my laces - inner 'Brutus' said to me "You still haven't started, you can still skip it and order a yummy pizza"... So i smiled bigger and laughed at myself. "Nah, i'm there, i'm almost started" LET'S GO!!
On my 3rd day of protein supplement. Think it's too early to notice difference. Was gonna start coconut oil last night but couldn't open the jar and didn't really want the calories. LOL @ not being strong enough to open the jar! Wonder if Zuzana will post any jar opening workouts on BodyRock - hehe!
I go on wayyy too much!

I put the title in speech marks because mid-week i saw a blog title somewhere here that said the same. And i thought "YEP, that's what i'm doing right now!!" Heh! So i put it in those in case the author drops by here and sues me for copyright or something...
So yeah i paused my healthy lifestyle for a week. Well 6 days, i happily counted up before. Meh i tend to do this every now and again. Sometimes sooner than planned/expected. I suppose it's part of just the way i am and it's best to accept it that beat myself up about it!!
I got on the scale this morning for a sneak peak and i'd gained quite a bit, as expected because i had zero workouts and lots and lots of silly food!
Oh wells, i am back to it on Tuesday. Eating right that it, i'm already back to working out. I BodyRocked this morning and it was fantastic! Ah, being covered in sweat and pushing to the limit... fabulous. =D Another one in the morning!
So again I am left with people i need to catch up with (I'm sorry!) and my protein arrived, still waiting on my coconut oil, aaaand what else? Back to good foods on Tuesday. I promise MYSELF!

Heh thought i better do a little blog just to update myself.
So i was back to work this past Monday. This is my weekend to work so i also had the bank hol Friday to work, plus i'm working through until next Thursday. Talk about being a workaholic?
We have next years holiday booked (no waiting around hey?) so i'm really excited to have something to work for and keep myself in check for. I finally realised whilst i was away what i love about life, what i want in life and what i want from myself. My hobby is travelling, anywhere, everywhere. I love new countries, cities, places, anything. I love visiting places and i have decided this is going to be a big part of my life - seeing the world. I suppose it already has been, but now i'm actually aware of it haha.
Also being physically active is something i realised i loved. I got kinda.... um, moody... no not moody, kinda down on myself the last week of my holiday. I know now that this was down to my physical activity going down to zero for the second part of my holiday. I am so passionate about BodyRocking right now and i really think this is going to stick. I want to be BodyRocking when i'm 30,40,50, just for the fun of it, for the enjoyment, and of course, to stay healthy!
So i'm back to clean eating (squeeky clean actually - i think i've MISSED it haha) and a good workout routine. I feel good about myself and i think i'm high on life at the moment. Things are good right now in all aspects of my life, so i am thankful and willing to do what's in my power to keep it that way.
A note to end on - I'm so blown away right now by my Spark Family. All my fantastic Spark Friends who take the time to come to my page, to read blogs, to look at new photo's, to take the time to leave comments/advice/jokes/love for me to read... i think if it wasn't for SparkPeople i would still think the world was full of mean horrible and crappy people.... but SparkPeople gives me hope! There are such amazing people all over the world.... getting together here and sharing the love. It gives me such a warm feeling in my belly.
