Changeling it up

Thursday, December 05, 2013

Well, I am definitely laughing easier these days! emoticon

I haven't found my full smile..but am on the right path. Even when I stepped on the scale the other day and found I have gained 8 pounds in a week. Yup, I flipped out, picked up the scale and cried! But, I recovered. Obviously, something isn't right.... I know the scale is right because the pants do not fit anymore!
So, instead of monthly goals, that get lost in life and that get me discouraged when I do not reach them, I am switching gears and making weekly goals.

I turn 36 what Better day to revamp and start a new day, a new year a new way.

Instead of getting right to work this morning, I ran in place for ten minutes. Then I did some abs and stretching. Then I did a short circuit of arms, thigh/butt and 45 seconds of speed skaters. This is when the lil guy woke up, so my time was over. 30 minutes isn't too bad.

Day 1/7= 30 minutes of movin and groovin.
I have no intention of laying out a schedule of workouts, because when I can't get to them I get defeated.

So this week I will aim for thirty minutes of something, that gets my heart rate up, while running I was at 180 for almost the whole ten minutes.

I have basketball practice tonight, so I will run for another ten minutes and then practice for an hour and a half with them.

Whew, just got roped into a dance party song with the toddler...arm workout, lol.

I received for my birthday a 30 minute massage, I will use this as a motivator. Loose the weight that I gained, almost ten pounds, then make the appointment. Ahhhhh

My lower back has been in such pain, a fact that I now can attribute to this sudden weight gain... Weird. My eating habits over the Thanksgiving holiday were not all that bad. I had only plate of food, a simple serving of everything, and one piece of pie.
I gained three inches on my belly during this time as well. It is THAT time either.

If things do not change I guess a trip to the DR is in order...ugh.

On the brighter side of things I PASSED my EMT practicals!! whoot whoot emoticon Now to study for the written exam, to take place in January. :-) very happy about that.

Drink water
Move and groove
