Reflection on SASS challenge

Thursday, June 28, 2012

Well this challenge is just like all the others. I am not doing so well. Between my mother in law dying, my cat having to be put down and having money issues I have decided I am depressed about everything. This challenge I gained a total of 2 pounds and I have to say I am glad it was only 2. During this challenge I decided to change things up at the end and stop doing zumba 4 times a week and try and get up early to workout. That was 4 weeks ago and I haven't gotten up early once. emoticon
My goals for the next challenge is to get over this depression hump and start working on me. Get up early and workout for at least 30 minutes. But this requires going to bed early which is tough since I do EVERYTHING at the house and by the time I get the kids to bed and clean up it is almost 1030pm!!! SO we will try harder to get this stuff done before the kids go to bed so I have time to relax. The next challenge I would like to get down to where I was which is 235 and I am at 260 now. Very sad that I have gained almost ALL of my weight back and I haven't lost anyweight since I joined the gym almost 3 years ago. I should just go back to walking every day for 45 minutes cuz that seemed to work. Only thing with that is I was pushing the kids in a stroller and they are 6 now LOL. Well i dunno if this is what I was supposed to reflect on but hard to reflect when you feeling down.

    emoticon emoticon I think the best part of reflecting is you take one look back and then you let it go forever. You've been through so much. And stress and grief both do terrible things to our bodies. Time to put yourself back on your list, and even if it's starting a streak of 10 fitness per day and 8 glasses of water streak. Every choice you make will make a difference. Hopefully the challenge this new season will be motivating and not overwhelming. So we can all ROCK IT!

    I know you can do this too! We are all right here behind you. I know a few of us deal with depression issues. Hence my pep talks to myself in the daily blogs to try and force out all of the negative. lol! But we're in this together fighting everyday. WE CAN DO THIS!!!

    Sorry to hear girl! Life challenges do make it hard to fit in time for ourself as well as stay upbeat. Wishing for things to turn around for you next challenge, so you can get some "you" time.

    Does the gym offer childcare where the kids could come with you and maybe have fun of their own while fitting in your workout? Or can you incorporate them in some how to another form of working out in the evening together outdoors - tennis court for some tennis, badmitton, kickball game, hopscotch (you have to walk in place in between turns), you walk and they ride bikes,... The options are probably endless but thought I'd throw out some options.

    Hugs ~ Melissa
