I was thinking that I wouldn’t do this blog anymore because I didn’t seem to have a lot to write about, and I was just going to post stuff on my Facebook page (which is HERE, and you should really click on the link and like my page!!), but since I haven’t been making the best food choices lately I decided I would come back to blogging and see if that helps me to be more accountable and make better decisions regarding my food intake.
First I’ll talk about my exercise!! I started the P90X/Insanity hybrid last Tuesday and so far have really liked doing it that way, although I definitely like doing Insanity better than P90X. But now the problem I have is I think I’ve pinched a nerve in my neck and it’s causing a little bit of pain, and the thumb side of my arm from the should to the tip of my thumb has been numb, so I’m thinking that I’m going to have to take it easy on the upper body exercises and work on cardio and lower body. This makes doing P90X very hard so I’m going to have to make some changes to my hybrid schedule. I hate that this has happened because I was really motivated and excited to get going on this program. I’m not going to let it get me down though, I’ll just modify what I’m doing and get back to it once my neck heals. Yesterday, I went to cycle class, which I LOVE!! So I’m going to keep doing that on Tuesday’s and Zumba on Wednesday’s, work on my running on Thursday and Friday and some on the weekend, as well as doing what I can with P90X/Insanity. I may just stick with doing Insanity because I can modify those exercises to not stress my neck easier than I can P90X. We’ll see, maybe it’ll start feeling better soon! I’m SUPER excited about Pink Saturday this weekend at Nautilus Sport and Fitness Center. Zumba, R.I.P.P.E.D. and cycle and everyone is to dress in pink. They are having door prizes and all of the money is going to a local charity Women Rock. “The mission of Women Rock is to save lives through the early detection of breast cancer while joyfully giving encouragement, support, hope, and conservative financial assistance to underserved, uninsured, and underinsured breast cancer victims in the North Texas region.” Can’t wait, I’ve already got my Tough Tatas socks from The Sox Box and I’ve been planning my outfit all week. I’m seriously considering dyeing my hair pink just for the day!! It’s going to be a great time!
I’m also excited that I’ve started signing up for virtual runs. I’ve signed up for two 10K’s, one for October and one for November. I’m hoping to be able to do at least one each month. Last, I’ve also been doing the #plankaday and #wickedwallies almost every day. If you don’t know what this is, there are a couple of challenges on Twitter that are to do a plank every day and a wall sit. Set a timer and see how your time increases over time. My times have gone down a little bit the last few days, mostly on the plank because of my neck.
Now to the eating issues I’m having. I signed up for Weight Watchers about 3 weeks ago and I do really well during the day, but at night when I’m alone I just want to snack. I’m also having issues with always feeling hungry. I choose foods that should be filling, protein and veggies/fruits, but I’m usually hungry within an hour or so after eating. I try not to eat too much, but then evening comes and I’m still hungry and I’m alone because my hubby works till 10:00PM and I think I can control it if I just have a small snack, but then I’m back for more. It only lasts about two hours, so I need to start figuring out when this is happening and find something else to do to get my mind off of eating. I know all of the exercising I’m doing I doing me no good if I’m eating too much, but it’s just been a struggle lately. Hopefully I’ll get it figured out soon, and I’ll figure out what is going to work for me so that I’ll stick to it. I can do this and I’m closer to my goal than I ever thought I would be so I don’t want to mess it up now!
Well that’s all I’ve got for this lovely Wednesday. Hope you all have had a wonderful day, and the rest of your week is just as good!
