I woke up at 4:30 this morning on my day off so I could make it to 6 am X-bike (spinning). I will go back to the gym tonight for 4:30 PC Fit (kinda like cross fit/boot camp) and 5:30 Yoga. I want to offer that up as a big FU to those people that insinuate I haven't worked hard for my weight loss because I have had gastric bypass surgery. I guess people think I just sit on the couch all day and get skinny? That isn't how it works you know?
Someone sees me eat a cookie, or some chips and thinks I can just eat whatever I want and not work for it. That is a croc! So, I do eat some junk here and there, but I account for it. I burn it off.
Anyway, on the positive, I went to x-bike last night with Coach Phyllis and she complimented me! She said that she can see me getting stronger and that my legs were "powerful" -- coming from her this was super exciting! I dare say that really made my day!! Phyllis is a fitness inspiration! She is just one of those people who have always lead the fitness lifestyle. She is small, but strong, and she is what I hope someday to be like.
In other news, I have roughly two months to train for Mud on the Mountain. www.mudonthemountain.com
This year my goal is to complete it in 3 hours or under, and do all the obstacles. I am really upping my training this year. I am going at it very aggressively. Hopefully the weather will break soon so I can get some outdoor training. I am adding an additional x-bike class a week I think in order to build up the endurance that I need. I've added Yoga once a week to help with flexibility and agility PC Fit will not only help with endurance, but will also help with strength.
The biggest obstacle I face is mental however. I am afraid to just "go for it" because I am afraid I will get hurt, or twist my ankle... I need to get in the right mindset to overcome what used to be my physical limitations. I need to just go go go!!!
I have also decided that I am going ot do it again by myself. There are people from my gym going, but they are all marathon runners and I don't want to hold them back. Plus, I kinda like doing it by myself.
Anyway, I hope everyone has a great day!
