Alright I've really got my head in a good space at the moment - now that all the stress of the house stuff is out of the way, I'm focused and committed and ready to work. I've figured out that I've got about 10 weeks until we leave on our trip, (eeek which also means 10 weeks til Christmas!!) so its time to put my head down and DO IT!
A major motivating factor here is that I tried on a few pairs of jeans on the weekend, and cant zip them up... aaaaaaauuuuurrrrggggh! Now I'm going to be in the UK, Austria and Italy in WINTER, those jeans HAVE TO FIT!! I refuse to buy a new wardrobe - these jeans are only a year old for heavens sake! A few centimetres off the hips will do the trick... that seems to be the first place that I put on fat, and the last place I lose it from. :(
Did a bike class yesterday - I'm really getting into these classes and loving the burn in the legs. I'm a sicko I know. I'm so motivated right now that after the bike class I just wanted to jump on a treadmill and run... but sadly I had to get home and get ready for work - silly day job! This morning I did shoulders/biceps/triceps and then 20 minutes jogging following by 10mins powerwalk on the incline. Again I wanted to stay for more but ran out of time. Happy with myself that the last two mornings I have left the gym with a bright red face, so although I looked goofy, I worked really hard.
Anyway I promised the pups I would take them for a "walk" this afternoon (I use that term loosely, as I've said in previous posts - its more like me being dragged at top speed - but we call it a "walk" anyway) and now that I've promised the dogs, I cant let them down!! Concentrating on having totally clean food - that bloated feeling is slowly going away (after my big carb-fest last week) - looking forward to having a flat stomach again. Need to buy a new training diary, I've got one day left in my current one!! Ahhh now I have a good excuse to pop into Rebel Sport and drool over the gym clothes!
It's Connor's birthday today!! My little kitty-cat is 9 years old now, cant believe how time flies!
