I have had an interesting time since reading Fed Up. I let go of my worrying about eating, and then began eating rather unheathily. But, that played out and now I find I am craving healthy food.
Where I work out an instructor suggested we keep food journals, as she is (and has lost 7 pounds) and bring them in each week. I just can't do that yet. I am still just too tired of all that thought put into food. I really hope and pray I can get a natrual balance.
I think food journals and other tools are great at times.. but just not now.
For Vday my dh bought me some dark chocolate with expresso. I loved them. I have eaten one or two a day. I don't want 'forbidden food' to drive my life so much that I can't appreciate a gift like this, or sharing some homemade pesto or a juicy steak with my family. This must be a natural thing.. which is what I am in search of.
I also don't want to one day be a 70 year old grandma on a diet. lol
I had an awesome PT workout last night! (Personal Touch is an hour of strength training in small group format). We worked on the step. Lunges off the back and side of the step. Bicep, shoulder and romboid work. I was already sore before I left and woke up delciously sore this morning. Ahh...
Oh, also per Fed Up, I decided not to work out every day. Take it as it comes. But I found, like Leonie has said, that I miss daily workouts. I would feel sluggish. So my goal is to incorporate daily workouts back in my life, but have them be just a normal part like brushing my teeth.. get them done early (my preference) when they don't take away too much family time, and not obsess if I do have to miss now and then.
Here is my workout plan for the next few days:
Today- Jazzercise (I fill in as Class Manager today)- with Diane, a favorite instructor...
Sat- Special Love your Butts and Guts class at Jazzercise... 1 hour and 15 min of abs and glut work, then 40 min of aerobics!
(update... slept in on a Saturday morning.. Ahh.. felt good! Will get a workout in today or tomorrow in lieu...)
(Went to Jazzercise. Enjoyed the class, though feeling heavy from my bread eating-fest...) lol
Mon- trying a new class at the Y-
(I hated it!! Left early... am going to stick to Jazzercise!)
Tues- Jazz pm (Filling in as class manager)
Weds- Jazz am
(Did class and then part of next class.)
Thursday- Jazzercise, then PT
(Did class (though arrived late) and had a great PT sesson. Sore next day...)
Friday- Jazzercise regular class
(Did class then walk in neighborhood- 513 C.)
Sat- off (walks with dogs, etc)
Sun- off (maybe pm Jazz if I decide to skip Monday)What are you all up to with your work outs these days? How is your eating going?
