Day 137: Discouraged

Tuesday, November 12, 2013

Be prepared for a semi-rant, friends.

I'm frustrated with both the sudden cold weather in the Chicago suburbs and living with roommates and having the semester being so close to ending. I feel like I'm slipping on my November goals and I hate that. I've worked out almost every Monday of the semester and yesterday it was windy, snow/rain, and super cold, so I decided to skip my workout and just relax in the warm apartment. I regret that today, seeing as I gained the weight I had lost last week back over this past weekend. I love going home to visit my family but it puts me in an immediate comfort mindset where I don't want to do anything. Plus, I worked all weekend so I've been trying to catch up.

I would ideally love to get up every morning and go to the gym, but that realistically will end up being stressful because my one roommate is kind of a bathroom hog, and trying to come back, shower, and get ready might be too much for me. I suppose I could try it and see. I just haven't found something consistent yet and I think that's why I keep plateauing... Which is annoying but at least I know I'm not the only one with that same problem.

I'm working towards trying to set up a gym membership for when I move back home. I want a good price but also something that will give me options. We'll see on that... I just know that running outside is probably not going to be my thing during the winter.

On a brighter note, my Spark Activity Tracker has been ordered, so hopefully it will arrive at home by Friday when I go back to do laundry and start moving things home. Eeep!

Thanks for reading emoticon

    Definitely do the gym membership! It's been all the difference for me! It snowed here today and is only going to get colder so I know it will be nice to have the indoor track, treadmills and ellipticals available for the next three months. I'm already planning on getting a membership for next semester too! It's just been a nice routine. And yay for the Spark Activity Tracker! I hope you love it as much as I do! It's such a good little motivator. I'm going home this coming weekend after two weekends on track and am hoping to stay on course rather than getting comfortable. I know we can do this!
