OK, maybe I am not so down in the dumps. I don't know if it was the crossfit workout yesterday that really pumped me up? The fact that my summer wardrobe is dwindling because of my weight gain (15 lbs in 2 months! YIKES!!!!)? School is out??? But last night and especially this morning I am starting to feel the excitement of this healthy lifestyle again. I was up at 0500 this morning and ate a lite, healthy breakfast and am blogging for a few minutes in order to let it digest and then I am heading out for a 3 mile, 1:1 run/walk.
The guy who taught the beginners crossfit class was really believable, lol.... He convinced me that doing crossfit would burn more calories and body fat more so than my usual running. He also convinced me that it would strengthen my entire core and will help alleviate my low back pain. That is my biggest motivation! No more back pain! Everybody there was so friendly and it was such a positive, encouraging environment.
Well.... I guess me and my all or nothing mentality is thinking that if I am going to reap the benefits from crossfit, I have to commit to the eating part of it as well. I mean, why would I bust my tail, waste my time working out (not to mention wasting the monthly fee we are paying for it), when I am just going to come home and binge on junk? Not worth it.... If I am going to do this, I am going to do this right.
I also bought Bob Harper's Skinny Rules book on my Kindle. I always say I don't need another diet book, but usually end up buying them anyways, lol. I guess when I read them, I pick up different interesting ideas. It's all stuff I have heard before, not really anything new, but just hearing it from someone else in a different way makes it seem interesting. And that's one thing I have learned over this journey. I have to keep trying new and different things in order to keep this interesting. have to keep chaning things up. Tweaking and modifying until it eventually goes full circle.
Hope y'all are having a great week. Praying this "spark" I have righ tnow turns into a full fledge fire!
