Back in the Sadle

2014-10-03 13.44.40Finally feeling like I’m back in the head space where I can lose.  Summer is over and I’m ready to get back to who I like to be.  I’ve discovered pictures of my fit self motivate me way more than my heavy self so I’ve been looking at them a lot.

I passed my spinning instructor test and I’ve started teaching classes at work, which is amazing and I LOVE teaching.  It reminds me of leading meetings, sharing something I’m so passionate about.

I’m hoping to start sharing more often again, I was reading the topic of the week and buddy up made sense to me.  Hiding from my blog isn’t doing me any favors today felt awesome sharing my loss and I can’t wait to share my next win!!

 

Not a workout

So today I took the yoga mat outside to do three circuits of mountain climbers and angry crabs and a mix of other excersizes but after 1 ish rounds I gave in to laying in the sun listening to my ipod. My legs were really tired so I got the message and I’m resting instead. There is always tomorrow, I have a class and roller derby in line for tomorrow so today is a good day to rest

Taking it outside

Today is usually a run day for me, but I have a 5k tomorrow so I decided to do one of booty quakes interval workouts from rollerderbyathletics.com

Then I though oh I’ll do it outside behind work…

Mays side by side against April

I’m not sure I see a difference but there is only one option and that’s to keep moving forward
April is on the left May is on the right

Goodbye Scale

Yesterday I weighed myself for the last time until June!

In other news I am saying goodbye to weight watchers for a little while. Right now we are on a limited budget and I can’t afford it. I am using my fitness pal to track and it’s taking some getting used to. I am not used to the bigger numbers, weight watchers has always done the math for me. So I’m adjusting and I’ll keep on tracking because I do honestly believe that is the key to weight loss.

April update and a May challenge

Hi there!

It’s been a while but it’s been all good. I am back on skates signed up for a half marathon and still eating and loving vegan.

As awesome as April has been the scale hasn’t moved at all. And I mean AT ALL. It’s driving me nuts, so I’ve decided I’m putting the scale away for the month of May. I’m going to weigh April 30 and take my measurements then it all goes away for the whole month. Is that scary?? Absolutely but it’s necessary. I’ve been getting on it every day and it’s not doing me any favors so I’m taking May to concentrate on good behaviors how my clothes fit. My goal this year, that I wanted for myself was to learn to at least accept my body but I would like to learn to love and appreciate it for everything it does.

The first step is getting over my obsession with the scale and those 20 pounds. Even now when someone says I look good or like I’ve lost I immediately say “oh I’ve only lost 13 pounds” or ” I still have 20 pounds to lose”

The big thing I have going for me is all the athletics I’m doing right now. I have a 5k in two weeks and I’m practicing roller derby 3 times a week. I know when I was most athletic was when I loved the way I felt and parts of my body, not as a whole but I could identify and parts and hold onto that.

I am going to start doing some cooking blogs again and show you all what I have been working on
