Feeling the need to write, so this blog may be "scattered," but I haven't written in a couple days so figured anything I get out is better than nothing.
I've been slacking lately with my fitness minutes. Sure, I'm doing the bare minimum, but I haven't pushed myself to do anymore. And I really should. It's been hard. I think I'm trying to adjust to not having as much time for fitness starting next week with new job, but in all reality I should be A getting more time in right now and B I will have time for exercise even with new job, just at a different time of day. Sure, it'll take some getting used to, but I certainly will have time.
I've been REALLY craving a gym membership lately. I've wanted one since we moved to MA, but lately it's been like all I want to do. And then in return, since I can't get one yet, I think my mind is kind of like "well, then why bother." That's NOT who I am, I know I need to stick with my plans and give it my all, and when I do get a gym membership, GREAT, but that doesn't mean I should be slacking off until then. I know that'll only make going to the gym harder, cause the exercises that used to be easy will be hard if I continue to slack off.
I haven't done the JM 30 day shred video in awhile. I really love her videos, I just haven't wanted to pop that DVD in. Maybe I'll start that segment of my workout routine over for the month of April. I know I COULD start it up now, but maybe starting fresh on a new month would be good incentive to keep going.
And, to give myself some credit, I have been eating fine. In my calorie ranges every day lately with 90% or more of the food I eat being healthy.
And, to give myself a little more credit, the only day I skipped a workout was yesterday. I've been doing stuff, just not a lot. Quick at-home circuits, walks, etc. So I know I'm not completely off the wagon, I just kind of need to vent it out.
Starting next week, since my new schedule allows, I'm going to be joining a friend at a free fit-club at the Auburn Mall on Wednesday evenings. I am very excited about this and hope that it'll maybe jumpstart me into wanting to do more.
As soon as preschool money starts rolling in I WILL be getting a gym membership to World Gym.
And, as soon as mother nature decides to STOP sending New England more snow, I'll be out doing my walk/runs again.
I think honestly, after just writing that last sentence, that the weather has kind of put me in a slump. It was GORGEOUS last week (or a week-two weeks ago, kind of forget now) and I was able to go for a run and everything. And then we got more snow/ice/etc. Kinda threw me off my running plan and then I just didn't care.
Which isn't normal for me either since I have so many at-home options to help get through winter when I can't run, that the not being able to thing shouldn't have been an issue. But I think that may be part of it.
Monday, Chris now has two appointments to follow up from his seizure. One is at 6:00AM and the other is at 9:00AM, and then I have a meeting with the preschool at 1:00PM. It is going to be a long day of being at the hospital all morning. But I am super pumped about going to the preschool Monday and then starting on Tuesday. Very excited. I started pinning more preschool ideas on Pinterest this week since I had been pinning more primary classrooms and now, for the time being, I'll be doing preschool.
I also have another set of MTEL tests this Sunday at 4:30p, and then again another set on Tuesday at 5:45p. Hopefully these ones wont be too bad!
Off to squeeze in a little more ST before work!
