I have been super busy, so its been a while since I have been able to post my updates for July so here goes nothing........
7/10 - Sunday
The day started off good... I had a loooong day at work but I was able to eat well.....then DUHH Dun DUHHHHHH (scary music), I went to my best friend's grad party, she had mexican food. She is also trying to lose weight and she uses sparkpeople too, she gave me permission to cheat a little, which I did, but no biggie because I got right back on track on.........
7/11 - Monday
FREE SLURPEE DAY...........................
...........YEA RIGHT!!! HAHA
Oh man, the tradition of the free slurpee day must come to a rest. I had to get back on track, and with no help from a frozen delicious Slurpee goodness.... I went to the gym in the morning with my bff and my sis, I ran 2.5 miles and did the ski machine....it was an all around good workout!
7/12 - Tuesday
Today was the first day of a three week bootcamp workout programs me and my friend are doing. We got it off groupon.com for $70 and it includes 3 weeks 3 x a week of bootcamp workouts. Lucky Us Decided to sign up for the class at 5:45 am.
WHAT WERE WE THINKING.....MAN IT WAS EARLY!!
The class went great, it was so much fun. Me and my friend were actually leading the pack when we were running and doing to exercises outside. Then we went inside and did kickboxing.....I bought PINK gloves, it was so much fun.
(7 months ago I would not have been able to say that I had fun exercising, but its weird to me now that I can), anyway we ended with a ton of ab work, and we did sooooo many leg exercises that today (7/13) I am soooooooooooo incredibly sore.
Oh and my dumb butt last night even after that crazy workout decided to go for a three mile run......did not help the soreness factor whatsoever!
Like I already mentioned above, I am incredibly sore. My friend and I met up at 7:30 this morning to go for a run, but we were both so sore from our bootcamp class we could only walk, which was fine because we really need the time to recover. Foodwise today was SOLID. I did great. I went to work and then went and watched my old high school softball team practice and hung out with some of my old teammates afterward. I had a great time today.
Tomorrow I have to work at 6 am which means I will miss a bootcamp workout, but I arranged to be able to go to a class that night at 7:30 pm which will be great because my legs need all the time they can get to relax and repair
NOW ONTO THE FRUSTRATION I HAVE BEEN FEELING:
I have learned throughout the course of my weight loss journey not to expect results instantly, it took 25 pounds for someone to notice my weight loss. But more than ever lately I have been discouraged by seeing the number drop on the scale, but not seeing a difference in my body. I struggle with it almost everyday. I know if I keep doing what I am doing I will see it in the long run. Right now I have little patience, I have been working so hard.....why cant I have a flat stomach? Why do I still look fat? Why can't I just be normal??? These things haunt me everyday, but I am stronger than that and I have a goal to reach.
Getting these feelings out really helps me focus. I am going to set mini goals that don't pertain to the number on the scale or the size of my waist, I just want to be a better me and all that skinny goodness will com along with it later.
I have to get up at 5 tomorrow so I better get going.....Goodnight my fellow SPARKTASTIC FRIENDS! Have a great day tomorrow!
