One Day I will earn all these for my car!
Lately I feel like a new person. I actually have energy for the first time in years. YEARS! Since before 2007….4 years ago. When I started having problems with my endometriosis before I ended up having a hysterectomy at 26, I was exhausted all the time. I felt drained all the time. I felt like this even after my surgery for the last 4 years. While I still don’t feel like the a person with the energy level I had say 5 years ago, I actually HAVE energy. Between working out and being on the rite meds I feel so much more capable. This week was proof that I am capable of all this work I need..want..have to do. In the past 7 days I have put in over 20 miles, mostly on foot, 6 were bike and a tiny bit of lap swimming. Twenty. Two. Zero. I cant believe it! I also did 5 days of workouts. The two days I didn’t do any workout were because I was doped up on pain meds due to having oral surgery. This amazes me.
All that being said even though I'm trying not to focus on the scale right now, I cant seem to help but get on it. This morning I just new I was going to see some change….nothing. No loss. Just the same 2lb variance I have been seeing the past couple weeks. I am not happy I'm back over that 200 mark and 204 does not sit well with me. I want that 2 gone! For good! Yes, yes I know it wont happen over night but I expect to see something this week. My eating as even been on target. Me and that “2” are not friends and she needs to hit the road. So this week there will be some changes. Keeping up the workout pace and back to basics like tracking my water and forcing myself to take the extra time to do some strength training. I want to add weights to 3 days this week. I HATE doing weights. I find it boring.
While I have come to the realization I would almost prefer to do cardio alone, weights I wish I had a gym buddy. Cardio I like to put Girl Talk on as loud as possible and get in my zone.
Weights on the other hand I want someone to talk to, to push me through those last reps. I love doing weights the 2 trainer sessions I have had. If you can afford a trainer, get one! On a student budget a trainer is not included. I need a gym buddy, but my schedule is so different where I'm in school it just doesn't seem to work with anyone I know.
This week I’m shooting for 5 days of workouts again and 3 also doing strength training. I want to make sure im getting in all my water and keep working on the mindful eating. I hope the weather allows for a few outdoors workouts, as I have become addicted. I have also learned that the park I go to has free bikes you can borrow! Score! That half marathon goal of mine is only getting closer
I hope everyone has an amazing week!
