Today's Kick in the Butt

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

I've kind of fallen off track. The weekend traveling was hard on me, but very worth it.

There were issues with hubby, but that's for another blog.

Friday was a write off - Travel to work 1 hour. Work 10 hours. Travel to Calgary 8 hours.
Saturday I just did all sorts of running around. Picking up things I needed. Getting together with people I missed. Dance lessons
Sunday was a travel day home.

Monday back to work, but I didn't feel good.
Tuesday, I just couldn't make myself do it.

Enough of that. I NEED to get back onto the horse.

I put this picture together last week. It's my desktop background. These pics have struck a chord with me. Each and every one of them. Either the image or the message.

I got on the scale today. I finally saw a loss. I was busting my butt for 2 weeks before this weekend, but not really seeing results. Today I finally saw some.

But I'm going to see gains on the scale, and all my hard work is going to go to waste if I don't get back to it. RIGHT NOW!!!!

Is it worth it? Is it worth giving up this self indulgent wallowing, and getting moving?


Okay, so I haven't done much yet. Just resting. But I've just got off the phone with the chiropractor. I'm going there at 2pm. Then to get my eyeglasses adjusted. Finally to the gym. I'm going to re-start my New Rules for Lifting for Women Program. It's not a big deal to restart - I only had two workouts in before I fell off the wagon. Besides, the first two were mostly body weight - to see if my body could remember how to move that way. The only exercise I had trouble with was Deadlifts. I've never done them before. I will keep working at them though.

After my workout, I think I'll dance for a while. I need to work on my turning. Prances. Pivotss. And Shenae's. Spotting. Frame. Home and Play. Finish the turn, then step. Oh yeah. Can't forget foot positions.

Lots and lots to work on. I have about 5 more weeks before my next set of lessons. Lots of time to get these down. I may not get them 100%, but I'll do my best to get there, so the next set of lessons can be used for new information, rather than going over this stuff in lessons again and again.

So I'm not over the hump yet, but there's a plan in place to get me there.

    I love your quote board. Especially, "what would you attempt to do if you knew you couldn't fail?"
