Been busy!!!

Wednesday, May 14, 2014

So yeah, it's been a while. Things have been slightly crazy, especially since I've kicked up the writing so much. I feel like I don't have time for everything I need to do. Yeah, I sound like my mom.

For the past 8-9 months I've lost a little and then gained a little. It drives me crazy. I know what I need to do to stay energized and keep the weight off, and it's called EXERCISE! I make all kinds of excuses why I'm not doing it (being tired is the main excuse) then I realize I'm tired because I'm not exercising. Vicious circle.

So I'm setting some low goals. 30 minutes of intense activity per day. Not just dancing -- this means step aerobics or bicycling or Tae Bo or something intense. Anything to get my heart rate up. It doesn't have to be an hour or more. Less is more if it keeps you on target. Then I can dance for the other 30, and still have time to write/read/study for the other 1.5 or 2 hours that is pretty much the entirety of my free time.

    I finally got over to your Spark page to see what's happening. I like your goal, and I wonder how it is going. I did see your activity posts for today. Looks great!!

    Missed you on our dance team! Glad to know your are doing well. Remember, you can combine Tae Bo and dance. I like to put on a playlist of songs I like and then alternate between Tae Bo moves and dance moves. It helps me to not be too tired and keep my heart rate up longer. Its fun to just let the music guide me. I listen to my body and when I feel like I am getting really tired, I slow down a bit and then speed back up when I am ready.
