Feeling a bit defeated lately. My food choices have not been the greatest and I haven’t been enjoying my workouts so I have not done as much as normal. As I have mentioned before, there have been some issues at the gym and we are looking to move to a new one. The only thing that stinks is that I have to hang around the old one until my personal training contract is up or I have to pay 50% to get out of it (and it’s dragging me down!). Don’t get me wrong, I really like my trainer but I just want to get back into a workout groove. It’s times like these that I dream of having a home gym and not be part of the gym drama. The ultimate thing would be to set up our garage as a home gym and find spin/cycle classes that we can pay to go to a few times a week. We are out in the NW burbs (Chicago) so I have not had any luck finding places that just offer spin classes. Everyone says we should open our own but can you imagine the cost of that especially when it comes to insurance? HA!
Time to move on…..
The one thing I am excited about lately is getting into boxing. I really enjoy it and am so excited to learn more about the new Biggest Loser trainer, Cara Castronuova. I have been watching some videos on boxing and want to learn more. I was researching more gyms in the area as we have not yet made a final decision and one really stood out although I would have to drive a ways to get there. Gold’s Gym looks and sounds like the perfect fit for someone interested in boxing and has a ton of class options. Decisions, decisions!
Anyway, last weeks workouts were definitely nothing to write home about but here they are anyway. It’s all about staying accountable right?
Time: 30 min.
Today was all boxing!
Wednesday- Shoveled snow
Thursday- Day Off
Time: 30 min.
So far this week hasn’t fared much better. BUT I AM getting excited because my friend’s Kelly and Tishia are doing a special 48 Days To a Better Me challenge. There will be a daily podcast with fun interviews and guess who is going to be one of their guests? Yep, me! I’m sure this challenge is going to help me get back into the groove and hopefully inspire others to do the same. I’m not quite sure what my goal(s) is going to be but you’ll read all about it here on the blog and hear about it on their podcast. The podcast is not all about weight loss/fitness but will encompass a ton of things that might include business, family, parenting and other topics. Hope you decide to take part in the challenge. It will work for anyone!
You know, I’m so ready for Winter to be over and Spring to get here. I need to get outside more often and I really look forward to going on more long walks with Kevin. Maybe we’ll even be able to get bikes so we can ride outdoors too. And maybe a puppy or two? That would make me REALLY happy *wink*
Hope your week is off to a great start! And since I’m a bit behind posting this and it’s Tasty Tuesday check out this recipe for breakfast quesadillas. Yum!
What do you think about joining me in the 48 Days to a Better Me challenge?
