I noticed recently that my clothes have been getting tighter and I’ve been getting a bit fatter. I stress eat and that doesn’t help with my weight. This past long cycle did not help things. I kept telling myself that I can eat what I want now to make myself feel better cause I’m just taking day by day and dealing with getting through that long cycle. Now that it’s done I have wanted to lose some weight. I didn’t have the motivation to get myself to actually exercise though. After thinking a lot and talking to my mom I finally joined the fitness center at work. I had wanted to do it for a while, but had kept putting it off. So I finally did it. It’s a really good price compared to what other places charge and they have a nice facility with a bunch of different exercise classes. So Monday I signed up.
Since then I have been on the treadmill Tuesday and Wednesday – 30 minutes each time. An today I took my first exercise class ever. I went to Zumba. I had wanted to try it for a really long time. I keep hearing people talk about how fun it is and keep seeing the infomercial on tv. It was pretty fun, but it was my first exercise class EVER. So I was a little nervous. There were only three people total not including the teacher. They knew what they were doing and most of the steps so they were ahead of me, but they were nice. I think I did a pretty good job for never having done it before. I plan on going back next week and hopefully I will start picking up the steps and start getting good at it. Being able to do that I think will really boost my self-esteem.
I have set up a exercise schedule to keep it going. Monday I am taking a different class after work that is half cardio and half resistance muscle building stuff. Then tuesday and wednesday is treadmill and then thursday’s is zumba. I hope I will be able to keep it up. Makes my day’s a bit busier, but yea. I also have to work an extra half an hour on exercise class days since classes are an hour. Though that should be ok. I hope to notice a difference in my weight and how I feel soon though I have only been doing it for three days so far. Too soon I know. I’m a little nervous on how I will do/feel when I start cycling again, but hopefully by that point I will have already be three weeks in and it won’t be so hard. I hope. It’s just nice to have something else that I’m focusing on and letting IF stuff take a back burner for a little bit. I’m sure once I get into the routine of things and start cycling again IF will come back full force, but we will see.
So since I have been getting everything set with exercising I have neglected my google reader some. I apologize in advance. As of now my google reader says I have 151 blog entries to read. Yikes. Some of it is food blogs, but yea. I will try to work on getting through that and making it more manageable. I will be with my parents this weekend so that will probably happen in this coming week.
