SIGH, MOAN, Frustrated Whine…
Okay, I am done. Done with the doubt and frustration. I had some bad days—some not so great food choices and a couple days of “feeding my stress” but I’m done. I didn’t put on 20 pounds; I didn’t even put on 1 to be honest. I kept exercising and here I am. I think I beat the slip up! Previous attempts I would have just given up and gone back to the “eating to cope” or “sleeping to escape” mechanisms, but I didn’t. I didn’t let the stress, the unmentionable pressures defeat me.
So for MAY-- I want to finish up my C25K training. If I can manage to stick with my routine, this should be by 5/25. I’m excited to see what I can accomplish. I want to Finish Level 1 of 30 day shred and move on to 2 this month. I’ll put the 5/31 deadline on that one. I’m making a calendar to hang in my kitchen and my treadmill room (aka the guest room) to help keep me accountable. (Calendarlabs is pretty helpful!) I also plan to keep with my 3day training for the Susan G Komen event in October. I just finished creating calendars for the next 3 months. I’m going to try to stick with it as much as possible and get all my workouts in. I was going to do the Spring Bootcamp Challenge, but I can’t access the videos. I thought my phone would do it, but it constantly buffers and I cannot find the printable version of the bootcamp workouts, so alas, I will do something else.
I have to take my running shoes back. They were a major fail! My knee hurts SOOO bad after using them. They either go back or I wasted $170!! Ehh, I’m thinking they go back.
I ordered a cute top & dress from Victoria’s Secret and the top is too big! (Awesome, right?) but the dress, I can’t figure out if I like it or not—it was just a beach dress anyhow, but it’s kind of just blah. Guess I have to return them both.
And to top it off—I HATE returning stuff.
Okay—enough rambling for one blog—I am done making excuses and am going to get back on track. I want a healthy lifestyle and I’m going to do this!
