I just want to do a quick post for you because I have a LOT to get done this evening. Can I just say having Olivia in school, Jackson in toddler class, me in cake decorating class and then my regular life is kind of crazy? Like legit insane.
BUT... I still made time for exercise last week. I was having a conversation with a good friend last week about this- people can think of every reason in the book NOT to do something. If they spent half that energy actually doing it, they'd feel so much better. So I have to try to think like that for myself when I feel like a lazy fat ass.
Last week I tried out a zumba class with two friends/coworkers on Tuesday. Though I had no idea what the hell I was doing, I really enjoyed myself. I pretty much messed up a lot and could barely keep up for the hour but the hour went by really quickly and afterwards I got a mini run in (one mile). The only annoying thing about zumba is that the people who know what they are doing should be in front, not the woman who had no idea what she's doing because she was messing me up. AND she was all over the place so then I had to be all over the place to see what the instructor was doing. I will be going again tomorrow. I think I'm going to stick to it being my Tuesday work out because it is fun and at least I feel accountable to go.
Then I concentrated on some ab exercises and some more arm exercises because those two areas I know I should be doing a lot more in, and I just have to do it. Then on Saturday I went for another mini run (one mile) and I felt pretty good, but out of shape. I don't know why I feel like every time I run a mile it requires so much damn effort. When is it going to feel like nothing to run a mile? WHEN, people?!
I've also been trying very hard to watch how much I'm eating. I feel like I've really cut down on my calorie intake, I've upped my water and I'm forever in motion. And I feel like I look kind of good too:
But I do notice I feel better on days I work out... so I guess that should be my incentive to keep going.
