Well it seems I am losing touch with my blog and the community aspect of Spark lately. I have still been tracking and still getting points, but I just haven't gotten around to seeing how my Spark buddies are doing. I feel sad about that, so sorry guys!
I kinda got caught up today, but things have just been "blah" lately. I guess I am just getting tired of doing the same thing over and over again exercise wise, but without a gym membership, I feel like I am super limited on cardio. It's getting to be triple digits here, which is just not conducive to working out outside. Plus with my sleep being so elusive, when it comes I try not to get in the way of it. This leaves me not being able to go for my run until 10:00am, which is already in the upper 90's by then.
So I haven't been running much, or really at all. I have been doing my Zumba, and though as much as I love to do it, and as much as I love to dance, I am getting bored with it. I need another indoor cardio alternative. I tried doing JM 30 Day Shred, but it's hard to 1) Keep you heart rate up, and 2) Do the moves when you alternate arm and leg days. My arms were like jello yesterday, so when I attempted the 30DS, I just couldn't do the upper body, and my heart rate fell way to fast. Plus even if I do 2 minutes straight of jumping jacks, my heart rate isn't going to stay anywhere near it should.
I am looking into Zumba the actual DVDs/system and some cardio kickboxing DVDs. Though I really don't want ST (hehe). So many of the "systems" have ST included though. Thoughts anyone?
My eatings has been...well, not good, not bad. I haven't been eating enough. I know, bad bad bad Misha. But I am just not hungry. I can eat a small meal once a day, then a snack in the evenings a be fine. Plus I am so tired and distracted that I keep forgetting to eat. It doesn't help when my mom brings home food just for herself. Sure, I don't any fast food burger joints (I am just not a burger person...unless it's Mighty Fine!), but still it makes me forget to eat until 10pm.
I didn't lose any weight last week, but I also had a major panic attack on Thursday. Well not major, I have had worse, but it was worse enough to land my body in digestive hell (nausea, heartburn, diarrhea, constipation) and a headache. Of course it had to be Thursday morning, before working out, and so the physical effects lasted until Friday evening or so. Fun fun...NOT. I hate the fact that my anxiety is so tied to my physical self. I mean if it was only an anxiety attack where it is mostly "mental" I would be a lot better off. But no...I have to get sick for days from one anxiety attack. And the reason behind my attack...people in the yard. Stupid I know. But having two sets of different people (someone taking out a dead tree and the lawn people) outside my house, together, for the entire morning (the people getting the dead tree where out there from 9am to noon), just really did me in. Usually if the lawn people are in the back, I can hide in the front from the noise, but since the people where removing a tree in the front, I didn't feel "safe" anywhere. So stupid...but oh well. It's an anxiety attack because it doesn't make sense. If it did, no one would care.
Well that's it for me. I think I am going to get caught up on some shows. Have a good one guys!
