SP Premium


a few observations....

Tuesday, June 07, 2011

So this is a ranting post about how AWESOME I think Sparkpeople is and how AWFUL I feel when I dont do it.

I just started a second job about a month or so ago...right when I was in the prime of getting into my routine of working out and making good choices and making this new schedule jive with the rest of my life. By golly if this new job didnt discombobulate everything in my life!!

Isn't that what life is though? It's all about the unexpected and you've just gotta change with it :) took me a couple weeks to realize how awful and weak and flabbier I feel. Granted I am very active at my second job, it didnt leave a lot of room for real exercise in the beginning. Now I am getting used to the schedule and realize there is PLENTY of time for me to spare an hour at least a day.

I fell in love with Zumba...IN LOVE PEOPLE. The fact that I thought I no longer had time to do zumba made me really resent this new job...but what are you gunna do?

I went to bed so early last night for the first time, felt groggy all last night like my energy was zapped from me at 5 o'clock...I felt just plain old blahhh. Didnt want to do anything, and ended up devouring a bag of tostito's without even realizing it!! WHAT? I've NEVER done that. So i was so upset I went for an hour long drive, sulked, came home and just went to bed. EARLIEST ive gone to bed since December. Obviously I needed rest, but Im sure it was out of sheer laziness. All these negative feelings of being depressed, and sluggish are things I DEFINITELY didnt feel when I was focused on working out, and watched my calorie intake. I didnt lose tons of weight my first month back, 3 lbs...but I felt leaner. Now Ive put back on what I lost but am back on track to feeling like im gaining control again.

I like the feeling of being tone and all over healthier rather than being so concerned about the numbers on the scale, which I think is a pretty good mind set. Here we go!! :) emoticon

    Isn't it funny how easily we can fall out of our "good habits?" And when we do, we feel like crap!!! I am STILL amazed at how well I've stuck to the program. And I owe it to Spark.

    I'm glad you have found time to get back to your routine. I have been doing Zumba for several weeks, now. I told my secretary the other day that I might not have time to go to my class the night before I left for vacation. She said, "But you LOVE Zumba!" I said, "No, I just NEED to do it for the cardio." She said, "Oh no! You GLOW when you talk about Zumba. YOU LOVE IT!!"
