Lying inside our quiet drama

Sunday, February 24, 2013

I don・t know about anyone else but I often find myself starting to fall off the cracks per say and, having to pick myself back up and refocus and re-motivate myself. I am currently in one of those funks, I don・t know why, couldn・t tell you why and currently can・t figure out how to get out of it. I have been eating decent, working out but, not working out to my full capacity. I think I realized there was other issues that I need to face before taking a full heads on diet and exercise approach. There is always some other factor that needs to be addressed such as mental blocks or that darn little voice in your head that reminds you that you cannot make these changes. As I said I just need to re-motivate myself and to do so I went out to the library and checked out all these books on how to strength train, best workouts for women and my personal favorite is this book called, The Unapologetic Fat Girl・s Guide to Exercise. It is really insightful and well because I am a dork I would rather read about the correct way to do things before attempting them (have always been a reader). After looking into these books further tonight I am finally seeing my motivation come back and am ready to knock some more pounds off!
As for my social life-it has been booming! I have had so much fun dancing the night away with my friends Friday night (had to get my cardio in ), going to little different areas on Saturday and going to the library and Trader Joe・s for the first time today. Now I am playing catch up with school work and spark
I also must mention that I have had my hands full! I currently live at home while I am finishing my Master・s and Friday night my dad came home with a six week old boxer/pit mix named Sally. She instantly warmed my heart and I can・t wait to be able to walk/run with her once she gets a little bit bigger. She really helps refocus me as well and I can honestly say her addition to the family has made me super and totally incredibly happy.

The pics are of course little miss Sally, my friend and I at a new Irish bar and Sally and I

    What a weekend! First of all, good for you for going to the library to get your motivation back! You inspire me to go look through exercise and strength training books.

Also, first time to Trader Joe's?! Welcome to the wonderful world that is TJ's. I've been shopping there forever and buy most of our groceries from there. I love it, can you tell! :)

That dog is soooo cute. Enjoy all the love and licks!

    I think we all go through times like you describe. The good news is, you're already starting to pull yourself out of it. Good job!

Little Miss Sally is so cute!!

    Sally is so adorable!! I may have to look into the book you posted about, because I also enjoy reading. I know how it feels to feel like you are in a funk and are unsure why, because I get that way all the time. You are a strong woman, you can do this, WE can do this no matter what little voice in our heads tell us :)
