Day 45 - Spring Training

Monday, March 25, 2013

I had a rough couple of days. I feel like I am foundering due to lack of a solid, rigid schedule... Although I did get a few workouts in last week, they were not really scheduled. This weather isn't helping, but I can't change that, and I won't use it as an excuse. I've just felt very blah, depressed for no reason. I will be able to elevate my mood with some exercise, though...

I'm starting a new training program for the next 9 weeks:
Mon: C25k
Wed: C25k
Fri: C25k
Sat: Rest
Sun: Rest

I've printed out my schedule and will check off each day as it comes. The couch to 5k will be so much fun, because my Skinny Rules girls are doing it with me! The HIIT will probably be done on my bike at home, but maybe not... I might try mixing it up a bit with some tabata training or jump rope.

I'm also stepping away from the scale for a little while. Not sure how long. I need to stop obsessing over it and let myself feel good about my progress. Once I get some healthy distance, I will be fine. I just want to focus on health for a while: How I feel. Inches lost. How my clothes are fitting. Fitness gains. % Fat Lost.

I'm ready to get down to business and work up a sweat!

And I am sure the endorfin rush from the exercise will do wonders for your mood!

    Me too! I'm taking a week off from my daily weigh-ins. I've been so frustrated. The scale has not been kind to me this month.

    You always amaze me with your ability to regroup, figure out what is going to work for you - and just move ahead and do it. Good luck with this new workout plan (and with stepping away from the scale) ... sounds like a solid plan all around!
