Today was the first day that I have been back to my Turbo Kick Class in almost a month.
I am so upset with myself for how I let myself go in just a short time. And the weight that I have gained back in a 2 month period is all sitting around my midsection. The effect is immediate in how my jeans fit.
You ask why? What happened?
I hit snooze one too many times.
I put my life on auto pilot for too long.
I've been putting my photography in front of too many things. It is my small business, but there is a balance between improving my skills and consuming myself in it.
I just plain feel heavy.
The wall in front of me just seems so much larger this time and I am not sure why.
I know exactly what needs to be done to get back on track, but getting myself to commit to doing those things is extremely rough.
I just want to say, "FUNK - BE GONE" and my determination and motivation and spunk will be back, just like that.
Today was a turning point though. I went to both Turbo Kick Classes in the am and pm and burned 1400 calories between the two of them.
There is a 2 mile race on St. Patty's weekend that I have done the past two years and I am nowhere near ready. This winter was horrible for trying to run outside (no treadmill here). But there's no reason I couldn't have found a way to stay on top of my cardio!
There is a 5k in April, but will I be ready? I fear the shin splints will come to haunt me if I start out again training too much too soon.
I'm thinking my best bet is to train for our local 5k on July 9th, that would be a more reasonable goal. And the 3 mile trail run I did last year is also in July.
I need to up my stamina in Turbo Kick and with running. Does anyone know how to keep my energy level high when I exercise? Besides keep going...after 30 minutes, I really start to putter out. That's my shortfall in running too. Which is why I never start out too fast.
Well, this short blog has become a rambling blog.

It is good to vent - even when I know I am the only one who can change the outcome...
