back in focus

Monday, April 04, 2011

I have really been stalled in my weight loss efforts the last week or two. I completed the Indoor Ironman at my local YMCA, and really liked pushing myself to finish that well. But to do that, I focused almost exclusively on biking (spin classes) and running, which I did on the elliptical. I opted to do twice the running and skip the swimming simply because I can not spend long enough in the pool to get the needed laps. By the time I finished the competition, I was really bored with spin and Elliptical. A new sessions begins soon at my YMCA, so I wrote down all the classes that fit my schedule and found several new ones that will work. I am also adding a morning walk with a friend (who just joined Sparkpeople after our walk to day!) twice a week. I am very excited about my new schedule and ready to get serious again and see some pounds drop off. My previous goal had been 60-90 minutes a day, but I am upping that goal to an average of 120 minutes 6 days a week. I did a step class today for the first time in a couple years, and tomorrow will take my first cardio kickboxing class. I think this was the boost I needed to get back on track.
