Back in the Saddle

i took a 3 week fitness hiatus. it’s amazing how much fitness one can lose in just 3 weeks of stagnancy and splurging. today, i resisted the desire to sit on the couch and watch Roswell, and threw on my bicycle shorts. i jumped on the rollers for 30 minutes, and nearly died. DIED. i spent the next 20 minutes fighting the urge to pass out, and now i’m spending the remainder of my daughter’s nap time doing what i *almost* wish i had done to begin with… watching Roswell and blogging. SO. i feel better about finally exercising again- i’ve done all i can do today, and i’m going to fight the rest of the day to keep my eating under control. i’m going to try to lose weight over the next few weeks, then i’m going to try to maintain healthy eating habits and exercise for the rest of my life. yeah right.

i’m reading a book by Jessica Berger-Gross called EnLIGHTened: How I Lost 40 Pounds With a Yoga Mat, Fresh Pineapples, and a Beagle Pointer. i’m hoping this book about this girl’s struggle to find inner peace and happiness, physically and mentally, will resonate with me and coax my own inner strength to the surface. i need to make a life change, and those are never easy… maybe this time i can finally do it.

i was going to go back to Yoga class this morning. YES! we have re-instated our membership to the Y. we decided that it is worth it… we even managed to get our rates lowered a little bit. i did the math the other day, and as long as i go to class at the Y at least once a week, the monthly fees will cost the exact same as going to a real Yoga Studio once a week.

SO.

enlightening books, Yoga classes, back to the gym, cardio ahoy!, and there i go.

it’s the 6th of May, and hopefully today marks the day in which i get back on track. 🙂
