I had an epiphany while I worked out this morning. You know when you’re mid-lunge and that genius idea comes to you and you finish your set not even feeling anything any more because you’re too lost in la la land to notice the sweat dripping from your forehead? Me neither. Except for today. Because today I decided to try to work at Big Sky. 24 hour exposure to fitness and people with goals like mine. What could be better than that? And free gym membership might be a benefit. Just maybe. How have I not thought of this before?
So I celebrated. And my celebrated I mean I ate cauliflower while I watched/fast-forwarded Water for Elephants and typed my resume.
Tomorrow Ill go and ask/beg for a job at the front desk. But not before training for my race! 2 weeks to go, people!
I havent posted much lately because of college and trying to get a job, but mind you Ive worked out every day in preparation for my first road bike “ride” (not really a race, its for charity) thats coming in less than a month. Gulp. 35 miles of New England countryside. I can’t wait!!!!
Also Ive lost some weight (dont know why, but its not good) so Ive been baking again to try to put on a few pounds. Today I made Gluten free pumpkin muffins. Almond flour, Brown rice flour, 2 egg whites, 1 cup of pumpkin, a little baking soda, some cinnamon, and 3 tablespoons of agave. They’re actually really good! Im trying to get a job at Trader Joes now so I can get a discount on Quinoa and almonds and protein bars and stuff so well see how that goes.
So you know those progress pics Ive been talking about taking? I lack motivation. Does anyone actually care?
Im looking into exercise science majors/nutrition minors. Any good school recommendations? Vermont University has my eye right now…
So yeah thats the gist of whats been going on in Moriah world lately.
This week has been long and weird and sad and disappointing and stressful. Im so thankful for my hour of exercise each morning!!! Its really the best stress-releaver. Leave it all in the gym until you come back the next morning with more hurt to drive you forward.
Awesome workout this morning. I did 4 of the circuits from p90x plyometrics, then added a 15 minute one that I copied from bodyrock.tv, and then a 5 minute one from them. I dont like to just use those by themselves because A. theyre too easy for me and B. They’re too short. They dont help you build endurance. So after that I added a little butt workout that I made up myself so it all ended up being about 1hr 20min. Tomorrow morning will have to be quick because I have to leave for my starbucks interview at 8:30 and I dont want to feel rushed or stressed. Ill probably workout 6-7:15. Maybe a little less because I want time to eat good and digest. I dont need to throw up on the starbucks manager :p
So I applied for jobs today and Im kind of going crazy with excitement/anticipation. I feel like Ive waited weeks for a response but Ive really only waited 8 hours. how do I calm down? Workout. (of course :)
Its also my birthday. So what are my plans? P90x. (of course :)
Birthday dinner? Grilled salmon with a salt-free cajun spice blend thing that I got from penzys. (of course :)
Well my weight hasn’t changed so Im not going to bother change my stats but as for feelings and comments, Im just happy to have been able to give the answers that I gave during this “fad.’ I know that just a little over a year ago my answers would have been depressing and dramatically different. Im also really happy to be done with this thing haha I was feeling so generic. Oh and more good news: my abs are sore in that awesome way :)
Protein packed surf&turf(as in salmon and turkey and one bite of steak…) salad. Or at least what’s left of it.
Oh where do I begin….
Cheese, pizza, fried chicken, cookies, ice cream…. its all dead to me :)
Narcissistic… haha thats what fitspo reminds me of. And I know that make me kind of a hypocrite because I participate but its what it reminds me of ;P
Fitness makes me think of the workouts that I love and feel privileged to do. It makes me think of racing and how I cant wait to do my first bike race in 4 years this october.
Healthy means more to me than you’d think. Healthy makes me think of now. It makes me think of how far Ive come. It reminds me of buying weights, getting groupons for yoga classes to slowly get me back on my feet, eating 100 grams of protein, and clipping coupons for protein bars because I feel bad about how much they cost my mom. Healthy is a word that reminds me that it was all worth it. Healthy was the reason I did what I did and am doing what I do. Healthy is a word that Im proud to say is no longer a dream.
They dont. I mean maybe Ill be hungry when Im at someones house and they’re eating chips and I want one just to stop the growling noises of my stomach but I never want junk food for the sake for junk food. Im so blessed to be that way because Im sure it makes my life that much easier. But when you’re as sick as I was, you know its not worth it and it just doesnt look good. I just picture myself throwing up again and laying on the floor because of the cramps and I dont want anything to do with it.
About 10 water bottles worth-ish… ok probably more. My day is a never ending cycle of drinking water and peeing after I workout :P
7 :P sometimes its more like 5 but I try to get 7.
Winning 2nd in the 5k last spring
Realizing I had finished p90x after faithfully doing it every single day.
Being told I looked fit by a lot of people.
Gaining all the wieght I had lost, but in muscle form.
Getting my road bike and loving it.
and a bonus one: Being able to do tons of pushups without compromising form. THAT was big for me.
I. feel. so. sick. right. now. What did I do wrong??!!!! Ughhhh. There must have been some sort of cross-contamination yesterday. Don’t you just love being a celiac living with a bunch of bagel fanatics? Well tomorrow is kenpo/bike day and I will be there at 6 AM kicking away even if its with a plastic bag in one hand in case I throw up. On second thought, maybe Ill be there at 7.
I skipped day 22 because I dont use machines :P
Well I listen to music when I workout so its usually whatever the song that Im listening to reminds me of. I try to listen to things that remind me to focus on my goals so Im motivated to push harder. No matter what, I just try to stay happy and enjoy it.
