Mar 05, 2010Okay, lets see.... I joined a gym and hired a trainer. ( Hiring the trainer was to keep me in the gym long enough to get results and feel better. Doing it on my own would surely be a tripper. I would have joined the rest of the clan at work that joined the gym, but experience tells me every one else eventually quits and I am on my own. ) So, I made my goals about controlling stress and gaining on nutritional knowledge. I wanted to add losing 50 lbs, but my trainer was adiment that I had an hourglass figure and it was not a good idea to take another 50 lbs off. Toning up was my replacement. It will take weight off me while gaining muscle.
I am learning a lot about my eating habits, and what I am doing wrong that keeps a 12 pound roller coaster going on in my life.
I am also learning that I can only concentrate on one thing at a time. Dating and work with built in manditory overtime and my home life and the gym is just too much. (So I dropped dating, LOL!) It wasn't going so hot anyways. I guess am too independant , and my life is so crammed full... that I cannot give these guys all the adorning attention they seem to need to make things work. I guess I am just not that type of person. It doesn't feel like too much of a loss... it doesnt feel like a loss at all, it actually feels like a relief to stop trying. (Wonder what that says about me! Everyone thinks I am giving up and tell me I am too picky. I just don't care to raise a boyfriend. Sorry . I don't have the patience for that.
My body is coming together nicely though. My core (tummy and back) are pulling in nicely. and the cardio seems to be relieving a lot of stress. I have also discovered HOT YOGA, which is a wow thing to do. I am just too tired to worry. LOL It actually felt good to get on the eleptical yesterday.
I am bouncing between sizes 14 and 16. (No petite flower here) but I like the way I am shaping. I know it will take till summer to smooth out the lumps and bumps I have left on my body. (Sagging skin and big boobs are another thing)
My work is having another biggest loser/ gainer contest. I am joining in just so I can sit in on the lunchen/ classes they are offering. I want to get as much info as I can! Outside of that, I am keeping my workouts private and personnal. It is about me. The only thing I have right now that is just about me. I kinda like it. the gym has become my escape from the world. feels pretty good to have an escape.
