Rumbly in my Tumbly

Monday, April 22, 2013

Havent wrote a blog in a while, but Iv been reading others. The racers inspire me. The HIIT ladies wow me. Im somewhere in the middle, Im the type that hasnt really committed. Iv been doing a 90min Zumba on Sundays, but not today! I took the kids swimming. For 2 hours. Im pretty sure I was in the water for a good 90min so Im claiming it for my exercise today. Especially since I havent been swimming since last summer, and I even did some laps for a while til I got roped into games. It was fun actually! Im glad I get to be the 'fun one', never would have seen that coming since Im generally a Eeyore. My last blog was a total bummer, I think its fair to say that the week before I start my period I shouldnt write a blog, because the afor mentioned Eeyore in me is front an center. Most of the rest of the month I tend to be fairly positive, or at least neutral.

Right now my positivity is mostly related to, you guessed it, exercising. It is amazing what it does for the mind. I get in my mopes, oh do I, and occasionally revel in them for months on end, only to re-remember what Iv known all along: exercise makes me feel good. Im still overweight, and my size appalls me, but gosh darn it, not doing anything about it only compounds my worries. Even tho I dont see anything changing about me yet (and why would I after only 2 weeks?) the proof is in the pudding- I feel better. Now I would love to be a Tigger some day, but for now Im more a Pooh. Hoping to be a bit less, stuffed with fluff, as Pooh is not known for being how do you say-motivated? So, in addition to my Sunday Zumba/swimming/anything that gets me moving, Iv also been doing Jillian Ripped in 30 2x week and made all 3 C25K sessions. I hesitate to say 'run' as my best it little more than a trot. But when I catch myself putting myself down like that, I have to remember Im still lapping everybody on the couch. emoticon

    Right now i think i am Kanga taking care of my son like she does little Roo. Little Roo getting into all kinds of interesting situations that cause Kanga to come to his rescue. Kanga always has to solve issues brought to her by Roo in am positive manner and teach him a lesson at the same time. emoticon

    Love the Pooh references. I'm a Rabbit myself. Uptight and grouchy emoticon

    Whenever I run I always tell myself, "You don't have to go fast. You just have to go." Really helps when I am going up a hill!!!
