So this blog post, like many of my others, is going to be kind of all over the place. I guess I will start in order of the days of the week and then do random thoughts at the end.
So friday I had a major binge day. To be honest, I'm not even sure what triggered it, but it was like I couldn't stop eating all day long! But on a plus note, my binges now a days are nothing compared to what they use to be. Now a days a bad day is eating 200 more calories than I burned. Before it use to be 1000. So there's still some work to do, but progress is def being made!
As for saturday, it was a pretty good day. I got 2 hours of zumba in even though I felt pretty sluggish the 2nd hour. I did a bunch of errands and picked up the puppies for the weekend. I ended up falling asleep at like 8pm and didn't wake till the next day. Apart from feeling sluggish, it was a good day.
Sunday I got my first outdoor skate in for the year. I went with the boyfriend which was great because with his job he doesn't get to skate very much and I know he loves it as much as I do. We also visited my parents for the first time in a couple of weeks. My sister was there as well and it was really nice!
Now to today! I'm taking a rest day apart from my daily challenges to let my body recuperate. I have a skate race this sunday so I will be taking it a little easy this week. Even though it's a very low key race, it still get my antsy. I actually decided that this year I would not compete at a regional and national level. I just want to take this year to focus on other things in my life and just focus on the love for the sport instead of the stress of racing. That being said, I have decided to compete in our home meets just to show support for the team. Hopefully sunday won't be too bad.
On a different note, I weighed myself yesterday for the first time in 3 weeks to see that I have lost 1 pound. I was kind of dissapointed, but at the same time not. I literally only have 5 pounds to lose. I am a completely healthy weight and considered skinny; however, my goal weight is simply the weight I perform best at on an athletic level. It's a healthy weight as well (figured I'd throw that in). I'm not super stressed about losing the weight, especially if I toned up a little, I know muscle weighs more than fat. So instead of saying I want to lose weight, I really just want to tone and lean a bit (and lose a little fat I put on my tummy and hips).
