Where has this week gone?
Thursday, June 08, 2017
I just realized that I have not blogged in a couple days. No worries I am still working hard on myself and my goals. Tuesday I did two workouts and got in all my steps. MAN did I feel that yesterday when just opening my eyes hurt! Ever workout so hard that the next day (OK maybe the next two days) your actually thanking God there is a handicap stall in the bathroom at work so you can use the bars to help you up and down.....YES that has been me!
(side note: I wonder if my family would miss me if I slept at work. I mean we have showers in the gym and all and when I go to the BR I would have bars to help me! LOL)
Yesterday even with the pain I was feeling in my lower body (thank you squats) I still pushed through and did Upper Body fix from the 21 Day Fix program and got in that step goal. While I was still in pain from the soreness I was SO thankful for getting to the gym and walking. It did help today as I am a wee bit less sore. My plan today is to do Pilates to get in that active recovery that my body needs. I will be walking home from the train (a mile and a half) and walking around the mall to finish shopping for my daughters things for graduation next week.
I just can't believe that it is already Thursday. I really wanted this week to go by slower, heck I want this month leading up to the 17th to just be in slow motion. However that is not happening. I swear it is like the closer that day is the faster the time goes. I just want to get into Doc's time machine and go back in time! I look at a picture I have here at work of my baby girls first day of kindergarten and I want to be transported back. I know...I know....the world does not work that way. I'm trying to not live in denial about it all, about my girl graduating....however it is a daily battle with myself.
At least I'm no longer in the depths of depression and letting food overtake me. Thank Goodness for my BFF saying what I was denying! This week has been a 100% about face from where I was a week ago. I have not missed a day of workouts, I have been focused on what I eat and I'm feeling simply fantastic! I swear I even feel a pep in my steps! I think it is because I'm now focusing on ME. I have a goal to be at a weight loss of 30lbs by the end of Aug when my family and I go to the shore for a week, and to be down 40 more pounds by December for my 40th birthday. I keep telling myself that just like when school papers were due I worked the hardest during the "crunch time"....well here I am 6 months away from my birthday, my BIG 40, and it is my crunch time! I WILL do this!
