I'm back! I didn't really go anywhere, I've just been avoiding the weigh ins. I started (and finished) watching seasons 1-6 of Parenthood on Netflix and sitting at the computer binge watching tv shows = sitting at the computer binge eating kid snacks. Dang it.
I did spend that time though multi tasking. I half watched/half listened to the show while making NASM CPT note cards. Thanks to a good friend, Jamie, for giving me the kick in the butt that I needed to stop talking myself down and just do it already. So that's what I'm doing. I've gone through the text book once and taken long notes and now I'm going back through it all and making shorter notecards. It's been so long since I've gone through the first chapters but it's coming a lot easier so hopefully that means all the info is locked away in my head somewhere. I'm planning on sharing a post later (next week maybe?) about how I'm going about the NASM studying and what resources I'm using.
But anyway, it's Wednesday! I've skipped a couple weeks due to my Parenthood binging but sucked it up and weighed in today. It's been about a month since I've shared on here a weigh in. Today I'm at 178lbs. Thats up 3ish from Feb 25th. And thats ok! I'm not too upset about it. I know what I did wrong and I know how to fix it. So, moving forward!
I started running again. Not far or fast. Just some intervals (fancy fitness term for I cant run any long stretch of distance without having to stop, walk, and not die for a minute or two.) but I'm doing it. I'm so not a fan of running but I always feel good when I'm done.
Also, my headphones kept falling out even with my headband on. I need the wrap around the ears kind.
Except it seemed like my entire route today was uphill.
After my run/walk/jog/hill climb I came home and did some planks, spiderman planks, russian twists, mountain climbers, and lots of stretching because Monday was deadlift day and I still hurt. Also, if you don't have a foam roller you should get one now because they're amazing.
And that's where I'm at right now. Working on me because how am I supposed to motivate people if I can't motivate myself to get things done? So, no more stressing over the long term goals or the little mistakes. Baby steps. Working on things one day at a time.
