It has been almost six months since I've published a SparkPeople blog, and almost eight months since I've done anything with my weight loss blog on WordPress. I spend most of my day on the computer at work, and I guess the last thing I want to do when I get home is spend even more time at the computer. But now that summer is over and there was snow on the ground this morning (WTF, mother nature??), I know I won't be spending much free time outside (my arse freezes when it drops below 60...tell me again why I live in NY). That leaves free time for inside-y things, so I want to blog more because I do really enjoy it.
I need to get my butt in the gym more. It seems like it has been one thing after another the past few weeks (head cold where I couldn't breathe, the following week I hurt my knee at a concert, last week I had my wisdom teeth out...) so I've been making excuses to not go to the gym. I also haven't been running that much at all. What is with me?! I browsed through some of my old blog entries where I was eating healthier and exercising more and I seemed so much happier than I am now. (Just reading my "I lost 50 pounds" blog --> www.sparkpeople.com/mypa
makes me sad because that was such a happy time in my life, and I feel so disconnected from where I was and how I felt then.) Maybe it's because I'm not in school anymore (where I was able to use my creative brain, I had more free time, I was taking art classes and gym classes that I loved) and now I'm not doing those things anymore. I can easily pick up a paint brush, drawing pencils, my sketch book, etc., grab my SLR and play in Photoshop or even strap on my sneakers and run or go to the gym but that spark that I had isn't present right now and it makes me sad.
I really, really miss being a student and working towards something, and I think I have decided to go back to school at some point within the next few years. I wanted to take a few Personal Training courses but I think I want to go back and get another bachelors. I'm leaning towards Fitness Development in hopes of becoming a personal trainer someday or Nutrition/Dietetics with a minor in Health and Fitness. I don't know which route I want to go.
Now that I've whine/vented a little I feel a little better. Now I'm off to make lunch, tackle a pile of dishes possibly make some homemade tortillas.
