Good Things

Friday, March 29, 2013

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.

    Hooray Ms. Butterfly!

    Just catching up on some blog reading today and I am LOVING your positive spirit! So happy to hear that you are on the mend and that you are continuing with your h3ll class because it seems like something you really enjoy. I like the incentive of a new swimsuit! I do suggest online shopping since they have so much to choose from and sometimes you can catch a good deal, although I think the splurge is worth every penny.

    Glad you have your mojo back!!

    Ha! I hate burpees too! (And mountain climbers and some other god awful exercise that our instructor doesn't even have a name for -- looks like a plank, then you go down on one elbow, then the other, then up to one hand, then the other hand).

    You ROCKED that class! And what a great idea to give yourself a NICE REWARD. If you lose the winter fluff, you DEF deserve a new bikini. Glad to see your Spark back!
