*WARNING* – this entry may be all over the place…..evidence of a scattered mind…..
I need a nap. I don’t think anything’s wrong. I’m just so sleepy. I want to crawl under my desk and literally take a nap.
I guess I have been putting in a little extra in the fitness department. I’ve changed up my routine, and my body is telling me it needs some extra rest. So, here’s what I have for you:
Tuesday, 4/16 – work out with my trainer and tap class
Friday, 4/19 – got some running in (13 minutes straight) and some walking
Saturday, 4/20 – more running (15 minutes straight) and zumba
Sunday, 4/21 – had an event. Walked, stood, carried and lifted. I was sore.
Monday, 4/22 – zumba
Tuesday, 4/23 – no training due to an appointment, but I got the tap class in
So, to ME, that looks like some pretty darned good workouts! However, I was told that I would not get props for my 13 minutes of running. Apparently, I should be running for 30 minutes at a stretch, 5 times per week. Now, I won’t deny that it’s possible. Of course that’s possible, but I intend to WORK UP to that. Just because I ran for 10 minutes straight 2 weeks prior does NOT mean that 30 minutes is right around the corner. Running was NEVER my thing. I’m still not sure that is IS my thing. HOWEVER, I’m doing it and maybe evening finding a groove with it.
Now, the same person also said you don’t FAIL unless you QUIT. Well, I haven’t quit, so every “milestone” means something to me. I haven’t quit. I don’t intend to quit. Can’t stop. Won’t stop.
On a different note, people keep telling me how good I look and that I’m getting thinner. Honestly, I still wear the same size. I will admit that it looks better, but it’s still the same size. Now, before you go thinking that I’m having a little pity party, I’m not. I know that I’m toning my body which will make it look smaller. As I’ve stated before, I like my curves! Zaftig is one of my favorite words!
I even had a woman tell me that I was inspiring her during this past Saturday’s zumba class! That made me feel so good!
Today, I am absolutely EXHAUSTED! I almost want to cancel dinner out with friends so I can go home and go directly to bed. No passing go, no $200, just straight to bed. I’ll still go to dinner, but I will go directly to bed after that. Maybe. I know how I get once I get home.
Anyway, I’m doing my thang!
