Blah blah blah

That is how I was feeling yesterday, Blah. I was so sore from pushing myself soo hard the day before, not only that but I had a sick kid at home. I did not do much in the way of workout. I did some stomach exercises, and some cleaning, but my three year old was so misserable that all he wanted to do was sit on my lap with 103.7 degree body. Thankfully he woke up this morning better, yay! Doing Gillian Michaels 30 day shred week 2, and running on my treadmill.

I ran the whole mile!

I have been having a hard time getting out on the road since I do not have a jogging stroller.  I said that I was only going to run outside, but since I keep not running because I can't get outside I decided to run the treadmill.  I did a mile after doing my 30 day shred video and I ran the whole mile!  That is big news in my book :-)
Go me!  Baby steps right???

Getting a jump start

I have neglected this blog because life has been so busy, it's time to get back on the bandwagon.

I am doing Jillian michaels 30 day shred, and I am going for a run!

Running and Shredding

Yesterday I did 30 day shred and today I ran.  I am trying hard to do C25K but I do not have an armband and I seem to keep hitting reset on my phone and resetting the program so it gets messed up.  I sort of have a track in my neighborhood  (sell choosen on the streets) that I run.  I have got to figure out how to modify my body though.  I have been running on the treadmill for so long that my impact is horrible.  I have got to figure out how to change that.  I did a mile in 14 minutes but that was with walking for the first 5 miinutes as warm up.  Not bad, but I chose a pace and I stuck with it for my running part.  Then I started just running when I felt I had caught my breath rather then waiting for the walk to start.

I have no idea how to retrain my body to run on the road so I would love a suggestion that anyone has.

30 day Shred Day 2

Last week I started Jillian Michael's 30 day shred.  15 minutes into it I quit.  People in my house were sick and I felt terrible during the workout  I should have stuck it out but I really felt bad.

The next day I could feel the pain.  My entire body was feeling it for three days!

This weekend was super busy for my family and I never got around to getting back to the workout, but I did do a TON of walking this weekend, so I am pretty sure that I burned a ton of calories with all the walking.

I thought that today would be a little easier on the on the workout front.  It was not.  That DVD was just as hard today as it was last week.   I guess it is just going to be hard for a while.  Hopefully tomorrow I will not be as sore.  I am doing the workout with 5 pound weights and the DVD recommends 3.  I feel shaky when I end the DVD so I am thinking that I need to invest in some smaller weights.  Problem is that I really just do not want to invest the money in smaller weights.  Isn't the point to work up not down?  I really think the combo of cardio and weights is what is making this workout so hard.  Usually I just do cardio or weights.

Needless to say its going to be a struggle.  Its been a difficult few weeks on the workout front.  I don't even have the energy to run.  I am going to try and have an early dinner and see if I can find the energy to run this evening.  I am tired!

In a funk but gotta get rid of the junk

My personal life has been a mess and thanks to our spring break once I stoopped working out my energy level went down the tubes!  I can not believe how horrible I feel from not working out!  It is the worst.

One of the groups that I read for weight loss they posted photos today and it was such an inspiration to me that I think that it was just what I needed to get out of the funk and get all the junk out of my head from this foul mood I have been in.  So, today is day 1 of 30 day shread.  Tomorrow I will be back to running.  Kamden goes to school tomorrow, and I am going to try and go volunteer in Kloes class.

I imagine that at some point in time we all run into that blah moment  where we all just do not want to do anything.   For me that is now.

When I got back from vacation my first day back spin class was canceled.  Then something with life came up and and doctors appts, and then I found out the the gym would be closed for two days.  But wait.  It would be open for classes.  The classes that I pay for a membership to be unlimited for....BUT, the classes that there were holding although they are the normal classes that I attended would NOT be included in my normal unlimited membership fee because the rest of the gym would be closed, ummmmm say what???  So now I have to pay to go to classes that I normally go to and already pay to go to???????   

Needless to say, I am no longer going to the gym.  I have been running on the road (which right now is only 15 minutes) and doing strength training.  Which is aparantally working for me because  I have lost two inches in my waist in the last two weeks.  I know it won't say that way, but maybe now I will start loosing some weight.  Despite working out 5 days a week for at least an hour every day at the gym I was not loosing anything and I was gaining inches :-(

I am in a major funk thanks to the gym.  That and the fact that I feel like I no longer belong here in Tennessee.  I feel like I should move now.  Gosh.....only what...4 or 5 more months?????
