Finally got everything settled

Wednesday, May 06, 2009

Well I am currently in week 4 of my new job, and I have finally gotten settled and managed to stay on track. I haven't lost much weight over the last 4 weeks but I am so not sweating that because this has been a huge time of adjustment for me. I have it all figured out though.

I know wake up at 5 am mon-fri to get an hour of cardio in before I go to work. I have put the C25K on hold for the time being because I hurt my ankle the last time I ran and although its feeling better, I am more interested in taking the running thing a little slower. I want to give myself a few more weeks with my new schedule and then I plan to try it again. I have not given up on becoming a runner, lol.

On the 15th I get my second pay check and I am going to ANYTIME FITNESS that day to start my gym membership. I am fortunate that my company offers a discount with ANYTIME FITNESS and I plan to make use of it. As for now I am only doing cardio but once I start my gym membership I will add in some strength training after work. I plan to switch up days at the gym, do some days of cardio at home and some days of cardio at the gym, but I will always get my cardio in before work. I have found it is just too hard for me to get any form of exercise in once I get home from work. Once I have my membership I will walk two doors down from work and go to the gym before I even head home. BRILLIANT!!!!!

I am pumped again and back on track and I feel great. I have managed to keep losing despite one week with a gain so I have proved to myself that I am able to do this. I will always have setbacks and obstacles but my being able to bounce back from them proves to me that I am serious about making my life into a healthy one!!! GO ME!!!

    Way to go on getting it all worked out. Be sure to get to bed early enough to be able to get up at this time daily. I wish you all the best in getting this schedule to work for you.
