I am learning:
I don't always have to be the first person to say yes
or the second one to volunteer to help
or feel guilty for missing a meeting for a workout or to just rest
I don't have to be too hard on myself all the time.
Missed workouts will happen.
New jeans will get tight.
I can go back to square one and get back on track.
and most importantly if I love & take care of myself all the pieces really do come together...
But its a process. I would never say I am cutting back on my busy ways. Some people thrive off being busy! That's me. If I don't have a lot of stuff to do I will pull my hair out, out of boredom. I can only take down time in small controlled doses like at a spa day. I could never just stay home even if I was Paris Hilton rich I'd have to find something to do. That's just who I am. A lot of the women in my family are the same way so its in my DNA and my only real goal is to incorporate some self love in the form of eating right and exercise more times than not to reach my goals.
Confession time! I finally saw my trainer yesterday after over a month! :-O I know right! On the upside the workout was good and I felt like I got a good workout in and I don't feel super sore today.
Charles is starting a bootcamp from this Tuesday and it meets twice a week (Tues/Thurs) at 5:30am till Dec 15th! That actually works for me because I have that longgg commute but I am teaching 3 classes soon to be 4 and I've been going in late anyway so I can go straight to class in the evenings.
I jumped on it because my 14s are tighhttttt and my goal was to lose 25 pounds and only lost 13. Not that I am turning my nose up at 13 pounds b/c I see the difference big time!
