Wow, it has been a while since i have blogged. Things have been hectic in my life lately trying to balance work, school, exercise & family. My last class seemed a lot harder then it should have been, which seems to be the feelings of my other classmates. 4 classes down, 7 to go. Started my 5th class on Monday and so far it looks like it will be manageable. Work is a nightmare as one of my co-workers quit a few weeks ago (which is a good thing) but we have been unable to find a good candidate to replace her (which is a bad thing). We all have larger work loads, no time to get anything done. Started exercising again this month - which sadly means it has been 18 months since I stopped working out.
Man I miss being in shape... I started with jogging/walking which aggravated my hip - so now I am hitting the elliptical machine & walking on the treadmill. I really miss my kickboxing classes from Hawaii. Those workouts always made me feel better, physically and mentally. Now I feel like I am staring up a steep hill that is taking FOREVER to make progress. After 3 weeks, the only plus is that I can go 20 minutes on the elliptical without feeling like my knees have turned into silly putty. I know - I need to be patient and keep at it, and that it will help me with dealing with the pent up stress I seem to always store in my shoulders... but I am tired of being overweight. I regret not immediately signing up for a gym when we moved to Seattle. I regret letting myself get back into bad eating habits. But I need to acknowledge these past moments and move on. I am working out - and that is a good thing for me physically and mentally :)
