Wednesday night check in. So far I'm doing good on all of my goals except the no sugar thing. It just isn't realistic for me. So I'm incorporating a 100 calorie snack pack of Chips Ahoy tonight. Okay and a few twizzlers today. Dammit. I actually think it's okay, especially if it helps keep me sane. Otherwise I'm doing well; vegetable at every meal and no alcohol, and I'm checking in here so that's good.
I still don't feel 100% about all of this, but I went to the trainer last night and he kicked my ass. In a good way though. He also reminded me of all of the accomplishments I've made so far. I'm such an active person now, and I do eat well for the most part. I know how to make really good decisions now. I can run for almost 40 minutes without stopping. I participate in charity events like the Roadless Ride, which I did on Friday morning and forgot to even tell you guys about! So things are going to be okay, it's just going to be a long road. And if this is ever going to work I'm going to have to have a better attitude. Right now I'm Debbie Downer all day long.
So the Roadless Ride was a series of 12 one hour long spin classes (I only did one) to benefit Brent's Place, a non-profit here in Denver that provides housing for kids with cancer who come to Denver for treatment. Such a great cause, and it was a great excuse to get my ass kicked at a 7 a.m. spin class. I have to tell you, it was pretty much the hardest spin class I've ever taken. I don't know if it was because I went early in the morning before work when usually I go later in the day, or if it was the instructor, who I've never had before but completely rocked. Either way it was a super tough class.
Unfortunately the Wednesday night class, which is what I usually attend, has been put on hiatus for the summer, so it looks like I'll be riding outside. Actually, that's a good thing now that I think about it. Well a good thing when it's nice, but of course today it's raining and icky outside. Tonight I opted to do an easy 40 minutes on the elliptical because I'm sore as hell from last night's weight session. Also a good thing. Oh my god I sound like a Martha St5wart. Yikes.
So yeah, I'm doing what I can. I'm working on it. I even cooked dinner tonight. I know I'm really boring right now but I'm trying to come up with some interesting topics to discuss. I promise!
