update, re-charged and re-sparked

Friday, March 25, 2011

OMG I haven’t blogged in forever. Way overdue. Sooooo, I have been down but not out. My intensity has gone down BUT I haven’t stopped working out and have been doing fairly well with meals. I just haven’t been following “my plan” as I said I would- 3 days running, 3 days ST. Between working late, son’s baseball games, relationship drama and other stuff….. Well, time has been a big issue. But it’s Ok. I will deal with it- and am doing what I CAN when I can. I am treading along and not giving up and must stop being so hard on myself. So in honor of tracking here goes, right where I left off:

I finally did something I have wanted to do for a long time now—I am SPINNING!!! OH YEAH!!! Super excited. For this I had to join a gym- so even better! This is exactly what I needed—something NEW to add variety to my routine and to keep my body guessing. My focus will be spinning (the class time suits my schedule best) and the weight machines. But there’s also kickboxing, zumba and other classes I will eventually try them if my schedule allows. I only plan to go 2 times a week, maybe 3. On other days I will workout at home as I have done for the past year and a half (mainly running and some ST). I think I did pretty good the first spinning class. It’s very different cardio than running. Definitely a challenge.

So I am re-charged, re-sparked and working my way to a ROCKIN’ memorial day weekend BIKINI BODY! In 2 weeks I will post bikini pics comparing day 1 and day 50.
