A different path

Thursday, August 15, 2013

I still have that new gym glow happening, LOL! I don't care if I'm busy or tired ... I go! In the locker room I'm not shoving myself in a corner trying not to be seen either. I have found my people and my new favorite gym. Oh ya, can't forget to mention my love/hate relationship with that Arc Trainer. WOW! I'm working my way up from 30-minutes to 45-minutes ... it's tough at a 6 incline and 30 resistance. With this has come a new outlook and a more positive spin on things which helps me find the logic in the madness.

My shoulder is slowly getting better. I've not had a shoulder injury before ... they are no joke! Three+ weeks later I'm still favoring it.

Although my weight hasn't really changed I am not seeing the drastic changes from day to day. I believe this is progress. Also, I'm firming/toning it all up. Many of my clothes are too big now so I can see the change.

This week I've had a bit more anxiety than usual and my sleep quality is tanking too. Anxiety is a trigger for me to binge as is being exhausted. I find myself, as I call it, "circling." First comes the anxiety/exhaustion, next comes the circling/hunt, then comes the binge. I'm trying to interrupt the pattern this time but it's not easy. *FINGERS CROSSED*

It would seem I'm on a different path now.

    I use the "Strength Intervals" program on the Arc trainer which works purty good for me!

But I have to admit there's a lot to explore w/Daily Burn video classes on demand at the new branch...

My recent (increased) stress levels haven't triggered a binge; just more low-level mindless munching... Trying to rein it in before I cross over that Heavyweight threshold again.
