Just a few things to blog about this morning, quickly (so forgive the typos).
Yesterday, at work (I'm a high school teacher if you didn't know), I had to go visit another end of our building to speak to some teachers about EOC testing. Unfortunately, our school atmosphere is one that isn't real social so we do not mingle much and I only see these teachers every few weeks. Anyway, I walked into this one room and the lady says, " jeez, Ms. Skinny Mama, you are still losing weight!!!! you need to go buy some new clothes!!!". Lol. I was speechless for a moment. I mean come on people, I'm still over 200 lbs I am most definitely not a "skinny mama". It was nice of her to notice and mention so I thanked her. :). Things like that sure help when you are feeling discouraged.
My fiancÚ is being a pain! I don't want to say he is sabotaging me...but something is definitely different. He wanted to get Insanity so he could start working out and he thinks my stuff is too girlie even though he has never watched it. Insanity was fine by me because I need to shake up my routine anyway...well it is fine as long as it doesn't kill me. But as of right now I still don't know because we still haven't done it! He doesn't want me to do it without him but everyday we are supposed to start there is something mysteriously wrong with him...a headache, a stiff back...sick to his stomache, etc. frustrating! So he starts days today and I will have a few hours before he gets home from work I am thinking of doing it then, but I would feel guilty because we are supposed to don't together. *sigh*. Also, the last 2 nights right when I get changed and get ready to workout he will want me to do something else...watch a movie, cuddle on the couch, go to bed with him, etc.. I know that this is my responsibility, I need to tell him no, but we have talked about how I still struggle with feeling selfish for taking the time for me to workout. :(.
The crazy thing...the last 2 days of me not working out at all (leaving me with at least 180 fitness minutes to make up) the scale has went down both days. Saturday, I rested...scale went down, Sunday did my 5k and another hour of cardio....scale went up......I am definitely going to have to do more research on the fitness side of things.
Anyway...must run...happy sparking!
