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!
