It's been forever since I posted, so I will give a brief summary of the events since Christmas before I get to my main point. I've been pretty good since Christmas. I've been logging my food for the most part and I've been keeping up with my workouts. Here lately I've been doing a lot of Zumba and Body Pump and not so much on the running. Although I've been making sure to run 3 times a week including my Friday long run. I did 8.5 miles last Friday and I'm either doing 8.5 or 10.5 tomorrow. New Year's Eve ended up being a nice night at home. I drank entirely too much, quite honestly I was trashed. I drink here and there, but not often and definitey not that much. Mark and I had a spat, which lasted maybe 30 minutes before we were happy and having a good night again (another reason I don't drink often!). But all and all it was a good time, we got the kids sparkling grape and apple juice and toasted at midnight, it was nice to spend it with family. New Year's Day was miserable though, I haven't been that sick and hung over since probably college. It was ridiculous! Needless to say, I'm staying away from alcohol for a bit, just the thought of wine kinda makes me queasy right now. So that was my only "bad" day as far as eating/drinking goes. Other than that I've been behaving myself.
Even though I've been doing well as far as eating and workouts go, I've been in a rut where my self-image is concerned. Although today I wore some of my size 2 slacks and I felt little and felt like I looked little, this definitely helped with my recent self-image issues. I only seem to be happy when I'm actively working towards goals, but since I've almost reached my weight goal I suppose I've felt almost like I'm without a purpose. It's hard when the weight comes off so slowly and I don't see the fruits of my labor as often as I'm used to. So, instead of focusing on weight related goals, I'm going to focus on health, fitness and general life goals. One that I'm working towards is running a half marathon. Another is fitness related, but I don't want to post it on here yet until I've committed. Tonight I had an awesome Zumba and Body Pump class. The weirdest thing: you might remember a previous post where I admitted to cheering on singles during Body Pump and how I had said that I was the only one that did it for the most part; suddenly many people in the classes have started cheering! It was like a switch was flipped and suddenly half the class is cheering on singles now, so random! I love it, it makes the classes way more invigorating, but it kinda weirded me out at first because it was just so unexpected! It was awesome! Every time now, when the instructor hollers "Singles!" Half of the class is cheering and all of a sudden Body Pump is way more fun! Anyway.... I'm sure I have more to say, but I'm exhausted and I'm wondering if any of this post will even make since, so off to bed I go! I'll post an actual *good* blog soon, with pictures! Of something... Night all!
