Day 16: Vacation

Sunday, July 14, 2013

I'm leaving for Tennessee today... and I'm in no way ready! This past week I was working my on-campus job with students with disabilities, so I did walk since we went to Chicago two days, but I did not keep up with SparkPeople... oops. I will be better about it now though.

I got a giftcard from one of the professors as a thank you for helping out so much. I think I'm going to use it to buy some Jillian Michaels DVDs (I was inspired again by Jan-Marie to try something new) so I'll probably order those either today or when I return from vacation next Saturday. I'm hoping to be doing a lot of hiking this week. Hopefully that will keep my mind off of everything that's been going on in my life lately.

Wish me luck!

    It can be very hard to get your groove when starting this new journey but you will get it if you keep telling yourself you're going to do this and by coming on here regularly...positive thinking and encouragement truly help a lot, from yourself and others! If you want to get into some exercise slowly, try the C25K as well. I see you've done a race but I wasn't sure if you ran regularly. The program starts you off slow and won't burn you out. Each meal and exercise at a time. Try weighing in once a week, that way you push yourself so you'll see great results at the end of the week.

    Getting on spark was the best thing I could have ever done.

    The 30DS is the best ever. I've been doing it this month as well....when I think I don't wanna do it I'm reminded that it really takes no time at all and it will all be over with. :) I hope you enjoy it as much as I have! emoticon

    Hey Girl! I'm telling you JM 30 Day Shred is amazing! Every time I think about putting it off, I think about how fast it's over. It's only 20 minutes but such a great workout! But if you want to try it before you buy it, it's available on YouTube! But it requires hand weights, so maybe you can use your gift card for that! I'd suggest starting small with 2-3# weights. That's what I'm using and it's not super difficult but definitely better than nothing. Hope your vacation goes well! Stay active and drink water, but still have fun! Good luck friend!

    PS. Sorry for all the !!! Just get so excited. :D
