Day 54: New place, new challenges

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

Hello, friends!

I'll make this short so I can go get my butt out on my run... But I'm officially in my new apartment and unpacked. I start classes the 26th, so I've got some time to get into a new workout mode. It scares me to be transitioning (which is probably why I gave in to an entire Panera bagel and some cookies yesterday). I feel like I'm going to sink back into my old habits from last year of buying crap because it's cheap. As of right now, my fridge is piled with fruits, veggies, lunch meat, milk, bread, and ground turkey. So far, so good. I intend on cooking that today and devoting it to a few different meals, so I hope that goes well. I cooked at home infrequently so now that it's all me... I'M NERVOUS! And I don't want to fail myself or my Spark Friends...

I know that I have the exercise part down and I get that, just have to motivate myself to continue with the same routine. I want to run a 5K in September on the 21st but that also makes me nervous because I'm only on C25K Week 4 (as in starting it today). I want to beat the time of the run I did last October, which was 38:38, but I'm having doubts right now.

I guess you could say that - like we all know - transitions are hard, and I'm lacking in support/motivation. Man, this is a downer blog compared to my other recent ones...

On a better note, SO happy we finally have internet today so that I was able to catch up on some of your blogs!! I feel like I missed out on Spark People more than Facebook haha

    No, this isn't a downer blog, this is a life blog. I think you are doing great! It's okay to live and have bad or average days. You are making great strides. Remember that. emoticon

    Girl don't worry about the race. Just do it and enjoy yourself and take pride in what you have accomplished. I do about 4-5 5Ks a year and I still walk at least some portion of the race. I just try to beat my time from the last race...that way I am competing against myself and not the hords of others that are racing around me. :) you can do this!!!

    I completely understand your nerves. I myself am afraid that everything I worked so hard on this summer will fall by the wayside when classes begin. But we do have something extra to help us out this semester -- SparkPeople! We can do this!!!!

    good luck to you on your new apartment and classes. You're starting out right with good food and exercise. Once you get busy with classes maybe you can do some batch cooking on the weekends and store it in individual servings. This should keep you stumbling during the week.
