Has it really been 3 months?
Wednesday, April 04, 2012
I haven't really blogged in awhile, because I felt like I didn't have anything to report. I've been doing okay with my goals, but not quite meeting them. Getting off track more frequently. April is a recommittment month for me. February was good, but March was absolute chaos. It always is with two boys playing travel baseball, and the older of the two also playing for his high school team. We are constantly on the go, and while I try not to "diet" and allow myself to eat the things I want, I was "allowing" that way too often. Couple that with not making the time to workout, and I've basically maintained. Could be worse, but could've been a lot better.
So, I've re-evaluated. Again. I purchased a workout program from Beachbody, Rockin' Body. If I follow the recommended program, I will be doing a Rockin' Body workout 6 days per week for 4 weeks. I will also still do my three strength training workouts per week, and have my dance class on my "off" day. I am committing to make the time to do this, as well as drinking my water and making better food choices. As of April 2nd, I was at 163.6. I hope to be under 160 by my birthday, May 2nd.
I am halfway to my goal and I need to stop getting in my own way. Yes, we're a busy family without much free time, and there are days when the only way I'm going to find time to work out is to sacrifice sleep. I already only get 6-7 hours, so I don't want to do that, because I feel like it would be counterproductive. But if I make an effort, I should be able to find at least 10 minutes to do SOMETHING. I like the chaos control me instead of adapting to it. That will change.
This blog is about accountability. To myself. I don't care if everyone reads it or no one. I need to restate my goals to remind myself of what I'm trying to accomplish. I want to feel fit. I want to have more energy. I want to be healthier. I want to be more active. And I don't want to feel clumsy and fat. I want to feel strong. Confident. Comfortable in my own skin. And I'm the only one that can make that happen.
