A new start

I was daydreaming in class the other day about how I needed to re-vamp my workout and eating.  I was doing OK, but got sidetracked this week.  Read: sore throat/hacking and school work out the butt. Now that I know what to expect with school (and I aced our first test!!), I can concentrate on myself and well-being.  

Frustratingly enough, I've gained 5 pounds since being here--but I blame it on stress. My face felt the stress too, along with every other part of my body it seems like.  My skin has since cleared up and I feel better about everything for the most part.  I'm even having *gasp* some FUN.  Still have a broken heart, but thanks for QueenB, I'm reading "Make Every Man Want You" by Marie Forleo.  Don't let the title fool you--It has NOTHING to do with getting guys lined up to date you.  It's about finding and emitting that strong women within yourself.  It's exactly what I needed right now in my life.  I've just started, but I'll let you all know my final thoughts after.  It's a short, easy read.

I've decided to push my usual hour workouts up to 1.5-2 hours per day, 6-7 days a week.  I know I need a rest day, but most times I like working out 7 days a week...just get that "lazy" feeling when I don't.  My short-term goal is a wedding back home, June 20th.  This gives me 2.5 weeks to get into a good routine, and hopefully drop 2-3 pounds. 

You know what I should be doing?? Writing my speech manuscript.  :-)  But I swear, I just cannot concentrate.  All I want to do is watch mind numbing television.  Or shop. Payday is Thursday.  DANGER. :-)

If I don't write for the next few days, I hope you all have a great week!  I'll be sure to update every few days or so with my workout log.


kick some rear lady- you are going to do great- it all happens one step at a time. sooo soooo glad that you find this book as empowering as I do- it's about you (in a non self-obsessive way) and being the best you to get what you deserve! oooooh happy day!

Speech manuscript!?! I'm having PTSD infused flashbacks from DINFOS! Ahh! So have you tried out the running track there. It's approx. 3 miles long, but has hills and everything. Even if you just walk it, it's a great exercise. It might even help to clear your head :)

Do you think that working out helps your heart? I find that when I'm frustrated or upset and my mind is going crazy sweating and making my body busy puts my mind at rest. Are you experiencing similar effects?

Good luck on losing a few pounds. What are you eating?

amen to meredith's above comment- running and beating it all out on the treadmill is sooooo calming and makes you feel more in control of yourself and your life.

hope you're kicking rear- amazing awaits dear! (oops, that rhymed!)

ps- you have to enter my giveaway!



i might have to pick up a copy of that book.. it sounds like we are in the same boat!
