Finally back at it!

Monday, January 07, 2013

This week I have been working out again, and carefully tracking everything! I am feeling great about finally getting back to it, but would really like to start seeing some results again! I am determined!

I have been trying to get back on my training schedule with my running but each time I tried I just wasn't where I had left off. I just kept pushing and trying. And... Today.... I FINALLY RAN my full run! I was so excited!!! emoticon

I feel like I am regaining my strength and hopefully can stay healthy now for a long time, and get to my goal!

I am focusing on strength training a lot more now too. I would really like to have some amazing muscle definition. I won't get those muscles by not doing the work!

This week is my last week before returning to school for another 16 weeks so I would really like to get in some extra exercise this week, as well as the housework that I need to get done in order to be organized when my crazy schedule starts up.

The stress is starting to set in already, I am a bit worried about the amount of credits I am taking this next term. As well as not being home when my daughter gets home from school. I have had to arrange for her dad to pick her up, which of course he backs out and has excuses up the wall and I had to make other arrangements which will not last the entire term. I might have to look into doing that particular class a different term just so I don't have to stress out about it. We'll see.

    Doris, I do set the bar high for myself. I hold myself to standards that I set for myself and if I don't reach them I get frustrated. Lame? ya.. in a way, but it gives me drive. I just have to accept the fail and go on if I don't meet the goal! I am feeling a bit better about this next term after I got my books and seen how skinny they all are! lol

    Treener....just look at the number of points you racked up since joining at the same time I did. You have about 4 times as many points as me. My impression of your work ethic is this: you set the bar high, you pick yourself up and start again when necessary, you charge forward and plan ahead. You can give yourself a break on that class and not feel guilty about it.

    Remember, your life is long; your time with you child is limited. They grow up WAY TOO FAST. You can't get any of that back until you have another child or a grandchild. I've been waiting at least 10 years for my son to get serious about having a child and am beginning to look elsewhere for kid time. Part of the reason that I am in this program is to stay healthy so I can enjoy a grandchild when/if it happens. Wish I lived close so I could help you. But I do admire your spunk/pluck/energy/attitude. Best wishes, Doris emoticon

    Good luck to you in your journey and in school. I also am stressing about how I will find the time to keep up with all my goals while taking a crazy load at school this coming semester. Hope it all works out for you. emoticon
