Y'all know I met Fluffy on Sunday and she has just opened up a whole new world to me. She made me realize that there are future goals to be set that I haven't even considered! My body as I know it is temporary. Today, I'm the smallest I have ever been as an adult and I DON'T KNOW YET what all it will actually be able to do in the future. It is an exciting time and it makes me want to try more...do more...push harder.
I mentioned in yesterday's post that I got up again (two days in a row!) to do yoga. [FYI...I do Namaste Yoga on Discovery Health & Fitness. It is a 30 minute show with commercials, so I record and FF'd making it about 25 minutes. So not too much of a time committment and it is on the beginner side as far as yoga goes. I like it!] Then at lunch, I did some interval training...you know, run/walk/run/walk. I would walk for 2 minutes, then run for 1 minute. I started running at 5.5 mph and realized that wasn't hard enough, so the next interval, I moved it up to 6.0 mph. I have NEVER run that fast, for 60 seconds or anything else. Each interval, I would move it up one tenth of a mph until my last interval of 6.6 mph. Holy cow! Even for just 60 seconds, that impresses me. But my toe started hurting a bit, so I finished up. Even still, I decided to go to Jazzercise after work. I figure I need to ride this wave as much as I can before I remember that I don't like to exercise. :)
Last night, as I was winding down, I started getting tired (as you do at night...) and thought that maybe I wouldn't get up this morning for yoga. I mean twice a week is fine, right? Then I read Laura Belle and realized that I would be disappointed in myself if I didn't keep pushing. So, yoga this morning...check! I'm planning to walk around the lake with a coworker at lunch and go to Jazzercie tonight.
After all that, I'm going to let myself enjoy my mini-vacation with no guilt or worries whatsoever. If I can work out, great! If I'm having too much fun and can't find the time, that's okay too. My hotel is 1.25 miles away from the spa where I booked an appointment on Saturday. I would love to jog there and back, but it is apparently high of 45 degrees in Indy this weekend, so I'm not quite sure about that plan. Brrrr...
Thank you, thank you, thank you for cheering me on. I know 100% that I would not be pushing myself like this if it were not for you all. 31 days left in my challenge and 11.2 pounds to go!
