I went back to work yesterday after being off for over a week. What a crazy mess...but by afternoon I realized a few things..1. I really do love my job 2. I'm acually great at what I do 3. I work with people that care about me. Everyone was happy that I was back & made me feel loved. This is so awesome because a few months ago, I was beyond frustrated & wanted to quit after being there almost 7 years. What a complete change around..for the better.
After work I went & paid for my next session of H3ll Class. I then phoned the instructor, told her what is wrong with me & expressed my concerns. She assured me I could do it, told me she'd keep an eye on me & if she says slow down, do it. I laughed & said trust me you'll be telling to speed up because I will be taking it easy.
5:30am, on my day off I might add, I got up & went to class. Off the bat she told me to only get 2 tiers, instead of my normal 4. She gave me a few changes in the program...we'll be doing this, you do this instead. ok. Warm up is running, I walked instead. Then it began with burpees. I decided to try them. During the burpees I realized I've come a long way & was proud. Why you ask?? Well I LOTHE burpees, I had an easy way out of doing them with step ups instead. But no!!! I did them..I did them slower, but I still did them. Next up was push ups..I struggled with push ups before..today I rocked them out & fast. I was amazed at the difference. The rest of the class was good. I did take it easier, modify a few things, but I still got a great workout. So happy I braved it & went. And the best part..I didn`t have a coughing fit after class. WooHoo!!
I`m ready to get serious again. Something has definatly sparked in me & I`m ready to lose weight again. I`ve got the exercise part down, but food...ugh. Being sick was kinda good because it detoxed me. When I could eat, I only add healthy foods. So when I went grocery shopping yesterday, I bought only healthy food. I`m ready for this.
I was talking with my Mom & I`m getting excited about my holidays. We`re meeting up in July for my Grandmas 80th birthday. I`ve never been there in the summer..I`m always there in either spring or fall. So I was telling her all the things I`m going to do when I`m there...it was all exercise..but fun stuff. Like I want to try paddleboarding & I`m going to take my bike & explore more.
I`ve given myself a goal slash reward. If I can lose my winter fluff (15 pounds)..I get to spluge & buy myself a new bikini!!! I have one, but it`s over 10 years old & I want to buy a nice one from an accual swimsuit shop. They aren`t cheap (and I`m cheap) so if I can lose the fluff, I get to buy myself one and not feel guilty for spending the money.
