Slowly Coming Back!

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

So last week was like, WOW bad. LOL! I had really bad back pain going on (it's usually really bad in the mornings which is why I didn't work out this morning when I got up. I might need to start working out only in the evenings after work although I'm always so tired after work that I never want to finish anything), I think my allergies were/are acting up and on top of it my guy was home sick as well so even if I had wanted to work out, I would have had no place to work out because my bf's brother is living with us still. All in all, I was supposed to start Month 2 of Insanity last week.

When I first did Insanity, I gave up in the beginning of Month 2 because the workouts were too long. This time we're doing it as a group so I really need to put my back into it (not really but you know what I mean) and try to pull it off. Last week should have been Week 1 of Month 2 but with all the stuff going on, nothing went as planned. I got in two days and that was it. This week, today, marks Day 3 of Week 1 of Month 2 (yeah, figure that one out. I'll wait. emoticon) which means when I get home I need to work out. My back is now feeling a lot better than it was this morning (I really should talk to my doctor about this. I wake up every morning with pain. It has to be the way I'm sleeping, or the mattress) and the bf is making dinner tonight so I don't have to worry about that. I can just go home, work out and not worry.

Today also marked the first full day in over a week that I have put down everything I've had to eat today and all the workouts that I've done for the last two weeks. How sad is that, huh? My internet is cruddy at work so it always stalls on Spark. But today I managed to patiently wait for it to load and to mark everything down so I'm already feeling a lot better. Now I just have to go home and really put my all into my workout.

Beyond that, I've been normal. It was just last week that really threw me and put a major cramp in my fitness, nutrition and general wellness. I felt bad that I hadn't worked out for the end of last week. As soon as Sunday rolled around I threw myself right back into Insanity because it felt strange that I wasn't working out. I couldn't get it out of my head that I couldn't do the program. I mean I was doing other basic stuff like walking the dog and doing my usual walks to the bus stop but that was it for fitness. Plus I was always so used to feeling better at work because I had worked out in the morning that when my mood took a dive I didn't know what to do with myself. I was/am cranky at work and I keep hoping the weekend will hurry up and get here. Not a good way to feel at work at all. But on top of it, if I'm in a mood I shouldn't be doing customer service because then that means that I won't handle patrons too well. So it's all this neverending circle that leads to the next step and it's all dependent on the previous step and I was missing so many steps in there that I just didn't know what to do with myself and didn't know how to get myself out of my rut.

So today I'm just going to go home, possibly shower before working out (work always makes me feel grungy), get the workout done, eat something and then settle into bed for some Biggest Loser and Ringer. emoticon Hee. It's the season finale tonight.

Here's hoping the day goes exactly as I just laid it out, lol!
