Kickboxing Bootcamp and other new things...

Saturday, October 02, 2010

Yep, kicking my own butt. And lost 4 lbs this week to prove it. I love that good hurt and that sweaty mess you get into when you know you worked hard. I can keep up for the most part, but there are some things that are just simply hard. Squat thrusts? WTH?! So why did I do it? Well, I miss spin, but I cannot manage to find a class time or location that works for me with my crazy commuting schedule. This does. And it is a total body work out. I feel it everywhere. My jeans already fit better. Frankly, I don't ever ever ever want to go up a size in clothes-- unless at some point in my life I become pregnant and then I will accept it. :) So only a stable or downward trend for me. Right now, I am back on the down. Trying to get as close to a 30 lb. loss by the new year as I can. And I figure if I am more disciplined with myself leading up into the holidays like I was last year, it will be easier to stay on track. (I actually lost weight in November and December of 09. I'd like a repeat performance. haha)

My other goal is flexibility. Been doing more stretching and stuff. I somehow lost a little bit of that. Since I was a dancer all through my younger years, I have always been able to do the splits, even at my heaviest. Don't laugh or roll your eyes. I just can... well could. I am like 2.5 inches from the floor at the moment. How the heck did I lose that? At any rate, I am working to get that back as well as other flexibility ranges in my body increased. So if anyone has any good stretching dvds, I want to know about them.

On the personal side of things, I am still seeing 3G, going with the flow as best I can for a girl... if you know what I mean. ;) And since he keeps wanting to see me or talk to me in some form, I'm taking it as a good sign. However we are approaching the month and half mark, and no one has every stuck around that long in recent history. Don't worry; I am not too emotionally attached. But I like him. Still hard to read though, which I am unaccustomed to. We aren't labeled or exclusive, yet I'm not seeing anyone else at the moment and neither is he... so whatever. I like my time with him, and in general get happy when I hear from him. Don't think about the previous one (he who shall not be named) as much, and never when I am with or talking to 3G. Actually I don't think about anything bothersome when I am with him. haha.

That's kind of it. Love my job, pretty much dislike where I live, but I kind of got screwed out of my new place so here I am, still commuting 2.5 hours each way to L.A.

My best to all of you in the new month!

    Glad to hear you have found an activity you like and are back on a losing streak. (The good kind of losing streak ;.P) The splits? Dang that's impressive! Have been out of touch for a little bit with the move. Trying to get settled in this week and figure out where to get started. TTYS. Take care.

    I'm a bit jealous of your flexibility. I have never in my life been able to touch my toes. :P
