Out of shape!!

Monday, November 26, 2012

Omgosh, I'm out of shape!! I started the Jillian Michael's 30-day Shred today and just feel like a miserable slob!! Sheesh. This is the girl who used to be a runner and could lift some pretty heavy weights.

Starting over SUCKS.

Since I've been away from SP I've gained about 20lbs. I trained very poorly for the Detroit Free Press 1/2 marathon. I finished, but at a very pathetic time of 2:45 and since I trained so poorly, I injured my hip and could hardly walk for 2 weeks.

It's been a downhill slide since then. The unhealthy train is full steam ahead and I need to do something to stop it.

Hubby and I have been eating out like 5 nights a week o_0 This needs to stop!! I've really discovered that not only is food my weakness, but I'm completely lacking in motivation to work out. It's so much worse now that I'm back on the 13 hour midnight shifts. And I just accepted full-time. I also recently found out that I have a severe vitamin D deficiency and recently starting taking a mega-dose prescription. I'm also trying to work in some vitamin supplements...but very slowly because vitamins make me feel nauseous/headache.

My goal is to do the JM Shred 4-5 days per week and start hitting the gym. I bought a really nice new Nordic Track commercial grade treadmill but right now, I just don't want to run at all. I feel like I'd better get to the gym and get on the elliptical and get into better shape before I go back to running. I also need to start eating at home. It's crazy, not only what we are spending to eat out so much, but the amount of unhealthy, high-calorie foods we're consuming when we're out. Need to start getting back to the basics and cook healthy foods for both the hubby and myself.

I am down to one pair of jeans that I can barely squeeze into, but have a closet/dresser full of really nice clothes that don't all. This is bullsh!t!! I need to kick myself in the butt for real!!

Thank goodness for SP!!!!

    You can do this...make a plan, put it in writing and put it where you can see it on a daily basis. Something I used to do when I knew I had no "go" in me for workouts, I would set a daily alarm on my cell phone to go off around the time that was best for me to get active. It was my reminder to get off my butt!

    Congrats on the half...sorry you injured yourself but at least you were out there trying it which a lot of people are too intimidated to even try.

    Focus forward where you're going not where you've been!

    Your blog sounds like I myself wrote it! I'm in the same place you are except the eating out. I even keep telling myself I NEED to workout and I'd feel SO much better even after one workout, but I'm just having a hard time making myself do it. Here's to both of us getting our rears in gear!
