Pushing Myself

Wednesday, November 19, 2008

I am ready to bust through this rut that I have been in for several months. I have been teetering on eating healthy and then binging when my emotions take over. I know it is not healthy to do. I joined a gym almost 2 months ago and have been going 5 days per week at lunch and sometimes on non work days in the am. It has been a good thing for me. I have gotten more comfortable with the environment and the people there. One of my co workers joined with me yet they have been awol for almost 3 weeks now. Its ok, I like my ME time! Today I am feeling proud of myself. I actually ran 5 mp 3 incline for 10 minutes without stopping! YEAH! I know it is not much but it is quite an accomplishment considering my inactivity for the last 10 years! I busted out 30 minutes on the elliptical prior to that. Wish I could do that longer but my feet are like numb after 20 minutes and it drives me nuts. Last Friday my husband got laid off from his job. He was working at the new ethanol plant in Aurora and the company who owns it stopped production on it. Bad time of year considering that the union he works through said many people don't start new projects over the holidays. So big bummer for us. Luckily today he heard there are several jobs and he will hopefully be back after Thanksgiving. That is something to defiantly be thankful for! Well, I guess I am going to keep on pressing on and challenging myself to new levels and hope that it will pay off in the end.

    ACK! My hours have been cut in half due to low census - so I'm feeling the pinch too. It stinks, especially at this time of year! I hope he gets back to work soon.

    emoticon on the Gym time. I have gotten back to TKD most days, and I am planning to ease myself back into kickboxing if my legs will ever behave.

    Happy Gymming!
