Three workouts in two days?!?

Seriously?  Huh?  Did I really just do three workouts in two days?  I have been in a little bit of a funk for a few weeks.  I have been absolutely mommicked the past week or two.  I don't know if it is weight loss, work, weather, or just a funk.

Quick aside....  Don't know what mommicked means?  It is a saying that is used most often in the down east area.  When I say "down east" I mean the small communities east of Beaufort, NC when driving on Highway 70 (Harkers Island, Smyrna, Williston, Davis, Atlantic, Cedar Island, etc.) not Rocky Mount/Kinston/etc. as the newspeople seem to label it. Mommicked basically means that you are frazzled, worn out, messed up.  Don't be surprised to hear "My lord honey ain't I be a mommicked this night..." when travelling to the area where I grew up.  Anyway, I digress...

Yesterday afternoon, the rain started around 3:30.  Sarah and I always run on Monday.  I definitely needed my run yesterday.  When Sarah called to see if we were still running, I told her that it wasn't raining that bad.  I don't know that she was that happy about it, but the run turned out well.  It wasn't that rainy and it was as therapeutic as it always.

This morning, I went to Weight Watchers to weigh.  I was feeling stressed before I went (and was not very nice to the hubs before I left home).  When I stepped on the scale, the person weighing me told me that I lost 4.6 pounds.  I missed last week, but 4.6 pounds in 2 weeks is more than great!  I have reached my 5% goal and look forward to keeping on.

Going to Weight Watchers lifted my spirits a little more and I wasn't feeling quite as mommicked anymore.  A group of coworkers go over to a gym around the corner from our office on Tuesday and Thursday for a group fitness class.  Our organization's Wellness Committee pays for the group workouts the committee encourages staff to go.  I have been too intimidated to go in the past, but took a shot at it today.  All I can saw is "Wow".  It was a great workout, with some great coworkers, and just what I needed.

I finished up my third workout in 2 days by going to my normal Tuesday personal training appointment.  I told my trainer about the lunch time workout and we modified things a little, but he didn't really take it easy on me at all. 

I am so grateful that I am able to really feel better about my lifestyle change.  The process to make the change clicked a while back, but now everything about changing my lifestyle seems to be clicking.  Here's to many more good days ahead!
