Love my resistance bands, and my new accountability
Thursday, September 26, 2013
Got the resistance bands today, and did half of a workout after a 2 mile run. I have to say I couldn't believe the smallest band was plenty of resistance. I'm gonna be feeling this tomorrow! If I get done with my homework in time tonight, I'll do the last half of the workout.
Tuesday and Wednesday I didn't do great eating, but I've done much better today. I haven't really tracked food, but as long as I keep on exercising and trying to watch what I eat I'm happy.
Otherwise, I've been organized. I've been on time to things, and I am starting to feel more like the old me.
It's been a bit weird being single. I guess the weirdest thing is since I don't know a lot of people here I feel a bit lonely. But I am making an effort to get out and get involved.
One of the hard things is upon telling people about my break-up, I get two responses: one group of people tells me that I did the right thing, and the other group urges me not to give up on my now ex-boyfriend...that he could still change. I know the ex is not a bad person. He's a good guy, but he does have a lot of growing up to do. And, who knows...maybe there's a girl out there for him that wants to take care of him like that. But that girl is not me. And maybe he will change, but I'm not holding my breath. The relationship got to the point that I couldn't handle it anymore and further my career. And I can't explain how much better I am feeling now, albeit somewhat lonely.
As an edit to this blog entry....I don't know how many people actually see this, but I decided maybe a form of accountability would be to post the night before what my workout will be the next day. Then I can write the next day whether or not I actually did it (and hopefully I won't be writing a ton of excuses!).
Tomorrow, I am supposed to cycle for one hour.
