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.
