Shorts Season and Tumbling

Monday, May 24, 2010

Just some random thoughts:

I keep praying for rain. It should be really hot now that it's almost June, but luckily storms have been coming every other week or so. I bought all of my shorts last summer when I was about 15 pounds lighter. I can't bring myself to buy new ones in a size that I hope to be too big very soon, so I'm praying that the storms keep coming until I can lose more weight.


Thank God I weigh-in on Wednesdays! I went home this weekend and overate every day. I'm so disappointed in myself and I'm going to have to work really hard to make up for it in the next two days. I usually just skip weigh-ins when this happens, but I can't make excuses for myself. If I gain, it's because I earned it and I can't just pretend it didn't happen.


I signed up for two PE classes in fall quarter. One is racquetball; great exercise that I already know I'm pretty good at. The other is beginning tumbling. If learning to do flips and handsprings with a bunch of fit college students isn't motivation, I don't know what is! My best friend works at a trampoline gym, and I've spent the weekend there flipping into the foam pit and playing trampoline dodgeball with some boys. I want to wow my classmates by being the bigger girl that can keep up.


Finals are in two weeks. It's going to be hard to balance excessive studying with being healthy, but the more time I spend in the library, the less time I can be tempted to watch TV and eat. Wish me luck!

    I sometimes skip weigh-ins when I'm unhappy with my eating, too, but I think it's dangerous to do that - I always notice that there's a correlation in my weight charts between times I'm not tracking and times I'm gaining weight. If I'm weighing myself, I'm far more likely to eat right.

    Besides, knowing what your weight is when you've put on a little bit means you get the satisfaction of seeing it come off again!

    Wow, I would love to take a class like Tumbling. I'll have to look into it once I'm a bit more in shape. I know I'd end up hurting myself. You are so awesome for getting in there and going for it!

    I don't know why, but I think that when one goes to their parents house they must over eat. . . a lot. I feel you there. However, I find it extremely cool that you are taking tumbling. That will be a lot of fun. Keep working and I know you will make it back into your shorts! emoticon

    Don't beat yourself up about the weekend. They happen to the best of us. Take it as a learning experience. Look back on it and the choices you made, and think about how you can improve next time. But the biggest thing is just don't dwell on it. It happened, and tomorrow will be better. It's all a learning process. Baby steps. emoticon emoticon
