On an upswing

Wednesday, June 06, 2012

I think I'm afraid to admit at this moment that I got sparked. I'm afraid to admit it because everyone else's blogs I read never lose the spark once they get it, and I don't want to have to retract my statement.

So lets just say I was somehow inspired to do well yesterday and into this morning.

Yesterday (and likely today too) I didn't make any of my own food, because I haven't been grocery shopping (I haven't done laundry, either .... and I'm not sure what to do for underwear. lol)
But, I made the smartest choices I could under the circumstances.
Also, last night I stuck to my 3-Day trainin plan and walked almost 3 miles. I thought it would have been actually 3 miles, but I had never been on that trail before, and I thought I was running out of daylight, so I turned around... only 2.8 miles. Oh well. Tomorrow is either 3 or 4, and I"ll map it out better next time.

And this morning, I did the Jillian Michaels 30 day shred video. I'm not really following her plan, just doing it 2 days a week as cross training in my walking plan. I couldn't completely keep up, but I could enough to not get discouraged.
It's a little rough on my knees though. Hopefully it gets better.

Ahhh, feeling a little better about everything.
Still stressed about work - I need to have two things done by tomorrow that I'm no where near done with, I've been slacking. I'm going to stay late/work at home tonight to get them done.

    You are doing your best. obviously something has you down. If being sparked means, you got a fist with a big red circle, and an x on it. Well join the club. When it happened to me, it was Memorial Day, and I was writing about our military. Obviously I made a NONO when I said, while in different countries how they help with supplies. Other than that, I don't know what being sparked is.

OK- You are tired, work piling up, what is the real problem. Burning you candle at both ends? You have a home, job, and you are doing Jullian, and all the extra exercises. Remember you need to get your rest, and take care of you.

    Way to go on your walk! The JM dvds can be hard on certain body parts. I have problems with my shoulders that her side plank dips (or whatever they are) are KILLER!! Stick to it and tweek what you need to for your body!
