April "Pushing myself out of my comfort zone" challenge!!

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

This is a few days early, but, I wanna get it out of my head now :)

So my no sugar challenge has not been perfect. So far Ive gotten 16 days out 26 days. Today if I don't slip will be 17/27. I'm hoping to get more days in by the end of the month... I will blog about it at the end... I was not expecting perfection though so I am not upset. So far I have learned a lot thru this challenge. I look and feel fitter when I have no sugar. So I will continue to try and stay away from the stuff...

For April, I am going to try to do more to push myself out of my comfort zone. To be honest with all of you and myself, I am a HUGE baby when it comes to working out. I tend to let the "atleast I'm doing something" mentality take over. I HATE working out. I tend to take the easy way out. Which is either not doing it, or only doing what I find easy to do. I can literally walk on the treadmill or outside for hours if I want to. It's not hard. I can watch what I eat most days now without a big issue. Except when Im sick or PMSing. I focus a lot of my attention on my eating, which, I honestly think is more important than working out. Everytime I start working out my eating gets bad. So I need to work that out. I eat a lot of protein already, but, I think I need to up my calories on these days to around 1400-1500. I gotta play with my diet a little to get it right...

So as part of this challenge I am getting a trial pass to a warrior fitness place. I think this is crossfit. Not sure, but, a few of my friends go and they love it now. I don't understand how though. All of them say they've thrown up doing it and they felt like they were going to die starting out. Hmm, doesn't sound appealing at all. Well, since my goal is to get myself OUT of my comfort zone with working out this sounds right up there. "Don't knock it until you try it" Right???? I am really scared, but, I am going to do it. I am also going to tryout zumba which doesn't sound as bad, but, I haven't gotten myself to try yet. I just need to try more things and find what I like. Who knows, maybe I will end up loving something and wonder why I never tried it.

    It sounds like you are really putting yourself out there and that is great. They say that you only hate exercise until you find something that you love so keep your eyes open for new opportunities. Good luck with your journey, I know you can do it.

    Way to go on the 16 almost 17 days without sugar that is a really big deal!!!!
