Week 2 Summary!

Thursday, November 15, 2012

This week was slightly more challenging than the first, which is always usual for me! I get a high from all of the healthy planning, getting back to the gym, packing healthy lunches, etc. during week one. Week two and beyond for me is more of adjusting to the routine, avoiding triggers for hunger that aren’t actual hunger pangs, finding the comfortable medium between being sore and resting or being sore and pushing through it, and trying to maintain a comfortable balance between healthy lifestyle and a diet. This is for life and I’m in for the long haul. I want to establish a healthy routine but also one that I can learn to maintain forever. I struggle with my desire for instant results, I struggle with the thoughts that if I start off strong that I’ll burn out or get bored with it.

It is much easier this time around with supportive people in my life that are participating in the change with me. I have experienced three different group fitness classes so far that I know I definitely would not have if it wasn’t for my mom or my best friend joining agreeing to try them with me. I'm now officially hooked on Zumba! My gym only offers it twice a week and honestly I don’t like missing it! The teachers are so motivating and fun, and you literally get a wonderful workout without realizing it. Seriously the minutes fly by! The first class was interesting because both mom and I looked like fools (but, in our defense, so did a lot of people!) it’s a little easier to get the hang of as each class goes by. Last week we also tried Body Pump and got the most brutal workout of my life! We also tried a yoga class, which I wasn’t too fond of. I prefer the P90X style yoga geared towards higher calorie burn and the class offered at the gym was mostly stretching and heavy meditation and breathing. We spent a lot of time rolling around in poses on our mats, and then some more on all fours which kills my knees! I love different forms of yoga, but for me if I’m working out for 60 minutes I better be sweating and burning fat.
