Yes that's right Tuesday I started my new program and I gotta say they are tough but I love it!! My body is sore but I love it!!! Can you tell I like it a little bit. Lol
Lungs this week were working great but I started of feeling exhausted and gross like I was coming down with a cold again. Monday night I didn't run and took a break from the track running but did some core stuff when I got home. That night I slept pretty crappy again like usual but I still got up bright and early Tuesday to work out. The workout went ok but the whole time was feeling tired and not well. Dizzy at times despite eating the right way. Ended up calling in sick after the workout and slept the entire morning. That was what I really needed. I woke up feeling a bit better but still slightly sick but got out for a bit in the afternoon to watch my Son's school basketball team kick major butt and he got 6 points during the game. I ended up getting to bed on time and earlier.
Woke up Wednesday morning feeling like a million bucks. The workout went amazing and I had my energy again. Eating all week went according to plan as well and I didn't have any major relapses. Very proud of myself for that! The rest of the week went just as amazing. Everything was working together instead of one part fighting the rest of the team. My workout with my trainer Lisa went super awesome and had a bunch of ah-ha moments. Brain and body clicked all together again. Extremely happy with how it went that I can build on as the next week continues. Excited to see if I can make more headway's on my weights and get lifting heavier again. I am on a roll and don't want to stop.
I am so blessed and grateful to be able to do this and have my awesome support team behind me. My coach is amazing as well and love working out with her again. Hard to believe it's coming up three years we have been doing this but so happy things are finally clicking in my brain and I am able to focus on what I am doing. The last few years have been so distracting and up and down. Having the workouts before helped huge and then the break was at the right time too. Now I am back into and more focused for it. I want this dream of mine to come true and I am willing to work at it to get there.
So excited to see the changes already and I know I will have good workouts and bad but still a workout in regardless of how it went is better then no workout. Just going to keep moving on. No regrets!!
Looking back on my life before thinking I was doing ok. Well I really wasn't. I slept a ton and layedr around doing not much. Times were active but in reality I wasn't doing much. No wonder why my weight wasn't changing and I was getting bigger. My asthma was getting worse. I see the whole pattern now. Since making that choice to loose weight and get healthier not only has my asthma improved massively but I have lost weight and inches all over. I have so much energy now and I want to live life and get out there to experience it. None of this sitting around letting it pass me by. I am going to keep having new dreams and goals and always striving to be the best me I can be. My happiness and my sons happiness are the most important things to worry about. I have been given a chance at a new life and I am going to grab on for the ride. No way can I go back to the way I used to be and think. I am finally ME now!! I've missed the real me and I am happy to have her back but slightly improved! ;)
I love my life and the people in it! I am truly grateful for everything I've been thru because that made me who I am today. I am strong, smart, honest and one stubborn person! Lol
Won't be writing for a bit as I am off to California for a fun family vacation!!! Yay can't wait! :)
Until next time...
I am still going along this new journey and tweaking my plans as I go along. The changes I made in my eating has helped me and all week I haven't felt like I did last week. My workouts went better because imagine that I had more energy thanks to eating more throughout the day. Even at times when I didn't feel like eating I made sure I ate something even if it was a couple almonds, veggies or even a protein shake just to keep things going into me.
Now I just need to keep working on the sleeping aspect of it all and get more of that. I keep trying to get to bed earlier but it doesn't always work. I will get there... just wish I could now. lol
Happy that I have now registered for 5 races for this year now. Excited to do my Canadian Spartans and go for another Trifecta. Would love to get a U.S. Trifecta as well but this new path right now is pushing that off to next year possibly. You never know what will happen down the road. Anyone wanting to join me on my races are always more then welcome. I have my son and a few friends joining me on my race journey already and the more the merrier. Looking forward to them all and possibly more to register for as well. You know me, once I start registering I can't stop at times. Lol
I have a few busy weeks leading up to another vacation but this time in sunny San Diego/ southern Cali area. I am really looking forward to. My sons soccer and basketball schedule has been taking over my life lately but I am glad he is out there doing them, enjoying it and even his teams are winning some of the games as well. With the working out early mornings I am able to be the momma taxi at night to catch parts of the games. Don't worry I still get out there and make time with those that matter ... Gotta make sure I have a social life still and keep that connection with the people I care about. Not only for my own sanity but also I don't want to loose those connections again.
I am still plugging away and still keeping on track with my emotional roller coaster I tend to be on at times. But the last few months I have been keeping fairly level and not so up and down. My new thought process is helping that and I am proud I am keeping things level. My outlook on life helps a ton and only being able to worry about the day and stop living in the past and the future I keep that peace inside me. Makes a huge difference and again working out regularly on a schedule has been helping majorly!
Well on that note I am finding myself repeating what I am saying and it's time I end this post. I will try to get another blog post done before I leave on vacation. Yes I am a little excited to be going. I haven't been back there since I was a kid so can't wait to show my son some of my favorite things and let him make his own special memories.
Until next time...
Yes I admit this week was a huge struggle. Started on Sunday and the rest of my week was slightly off. I also have felt like I was battling a bug of some sort but no major cold symptoms other then feeling warm, just icky and basically not great overall. hahaha I know I am so great with words.
I love the workouts but feel frustrated when I can't give it 100%. I do know to listen to my body too so I do the workouts but with less weight and have had to break them up as I am going at a slower pace then normal. I know my eating is off and I am not eating enough for the day either so am still playing around with that too. Will take a little time but I will get it right and when I do it will be awesome. Until then I keep pushing thru it and doing what I can.
My workout with my trainer Lisa went great Friday night like usual. She confirmed that I do need to eat more even when I don't feel like eating. So will take the up coming week and add more to eat and will get back on track. All these little steps will get me to my end goal. She just said its normal to feel this way with the amount I am training and working out alone is always a little harder and you have to deal with your brain. Now if I can get my brain and my lungs working together instead of fighting with each other I would be so happy! Lol
I do see small improvements in my body and more baby muscles emerging on my back now. My abs are slowly and I mean very slowly peaking out but even they are making small improvements too. Ok so I see a lot more improvements in just two weeks. Getting me more motivated and to keep pushing thru this.
I have been going to a chiropractor twice a week and we have been making improvements in my hips. My body has been moving so much better since I started going. I even got into a massage and had one of the best I've had in a long time. She fixed a few issues too that I have had and other massage therapists couldn't fix. I can't wait to go back. Feels amazing to be going about my training the right way and making sure all areas are covered and getting worked on. With going to Chiro and massage my workouts are more efficient and I am working so much more smarter.
I've started to register for a few races... I know I am late for doing that but I am going about them smarter this year and making sure I add in proper rest time so I don't feel so battered and broken at the end of the year like last year. This year is about playing and organizing it smarter. I also want to be able to improve my previous race times and get stronger and faster and to do that is eat, train and rest. I look back and wonder how I did it all but at the same time I have no regrets either.
Today's workout went great and feeling like a much better start to my week. Just need to eat more and I should turn things around again. Well I better finish this post up so I can get to my friend Angela's place to watch the Seahawks kick the Patriots butt!! Go Seahawks! haha
Until next time...
I am a single mom with one son that has been living with asthma since I was 2yrs old. I also almost died three times due to severe asthma attacks! I don't let my asthma stop me from accomplishing new goals and living life to the fullest.
