Busy, Busy, Busy!!
Between classes, trying to fit in the gym, work, and studying, I have a nutso schedule! I feel like there is too much to do, and I would greatly appreciate and extra 2 hours in every day. I am even scheduling time to talk to my sister ... that is how little flexibility in my schedule there is. Seriously. Here is a screen clip of my calendar (which I would die without ...)
Oh well. That is my new normal. I can handle it. I can roll with the punches. I can be just fine and chipper with 6 hours of sleep and plenty of coffee. I can. I will. Only 13 weeks left of the semester ...
My fitness has been fairly consistent lately. I do Tuesday 6:10AM zumba class and Wednesday 6:30PM cycle-power class. I plan on doing Thursday or Monday TRX at 5:30PM, and at least one zumba class on the weekend (either Saturday or Sunday - depending on my schedule). I wish TRX was offered at better times so I could do it really consistently. I loved it this summer and definitely noticed a difference with my shape!
**Note - I just came back from the gym after a long deliberation about wether to go or not since I missed TRX anyway. I took a kickboxing class and forgot how much I loved it! So my new plan is to do kickboxing on Mondays @5pm when my schedule allows.
I feel like this is a lot of fitness classes, especially with everything else. And then factoring in I have to drive home and shower and eat. But I feel like I really need that time to myself. I never feel bad after a workout. Ever!
I went to the dentist today. This girl hasn't been to a dentist since *cough* May 2008-ish *cough*, BUT is still proudly cavity free. And now I remember WHY I haven't been there (besides my insurance issue) -- my mouth is in so much pain. I am eating ramen for dinner, because I can't chew. I was going to have a salad with it, but that might even be too much. Yikes!
Have to admit. Feels really great to be the biggest person in fitness class, but the only person absolutely killing it. I mean. I leave don't hold anything back. Especially with my spin class - I really love my instructor Jay. He is super motivating in the "mean" way I like :)
I feel like my spark-page is incorrect.
A) When I told it I was going to do cardio for 40 mins at a time 3 days a week, it said "Great, you're goal is 180 minutes per week" ... um, math much??
B) I feel like I am eating a ton of calories - 1800! Who knows. I am also going to have to adjust it with my new schedule, but still.
I haven't been feeling the spark-love lately. I remember when things were shiny and new. People were so encouraging. Friends posted and commented. I just feel like it's lacking a little. I joined a challenge team, so hopefully I get some better interaction in the coming weeks.
Well, I am off to wash my face and study for my antimicrobial quiz tomorrow ... that my teacher never lectured over but we were supposed to read the chapter and just know what he was going to emphasize ...
**As an edit, I don't want people to think I am just b*itching about not haven't comments or anything, I am just saying that things were easier when I was having a rough go of it and there was so much support to get me to turn it around.
