I attended spin class at the gym again last night. 2 weeks in a row! I'm on a roll, ya'll!! (Yes, I say "ya'll"...I'm a southerner and darn proud of it!) I've made a promise to my body that I would get her back in shape and I made a goal to attend spin at LEAST once a week, if not twice. So far, so good. I always feel like I really work out when I do that class, moreso than when I follow my own routine. Perhaps the lack of breaking and the urge to push through when you see everyone else going 90 mph has something to do with it. I refuse to be left behind so I'm forced to get my butt in gear! It's rather fun as well. Fun music, adrenaline and lots of energy! My leg muscles are severely strained and hurting like nobody's business. I'm most definitely feeling the (good) consequences. If you have not tried it, I highly recommend! You will not be disappointed and you will get a good work out!
I am really trying to actually use my gym membership who so generously deducts that nice amount out of my bank account each month. It's a shame that I have not taken full advantage of the membership that I pay for and I am determined to change that entirely. I need to work out and not just because I'd like to shed a few pounds but also because it just makes me feel better altogether.
I'm definitely no health nut and my eating habits are TERRIBLE. I rarely eat breakfast because the thought of food at 6:00 am literally makes me ill. I go to lunch at 2:00 pm everyday and by that time I am starving, so I eat whatever we have at the house of which is easy and quick and that usually comes down to mac and cheese, leftovers from the previous night, PB&J (I actually LOVE PB&J) or just whatever I can find (and is hardly ever healthy). Come dinnertime, I am not the least bit hungry simply because I have eaten just a couple hours before during my late lunch hour. So, at around 9:00pm-10:00pm I get really hungry again and of course, that is the WORST time to eat! How do I change this?! I have tried, really. But once those later hours roll around, I just want to binge on any food I can find and it is utterly awful simply because most of the time it is junk and I tend to ashamedly consume fairly large portions. Oh the shame. =/
I want to be a healthy eater, I really do. I love various vegetables and fruits but I also love sweets and candy =/ haha. I often skim all of these healthy blogs, vegan blogs, and vegetarian blogs and get all inspired to start eating healthier and then wham, I get a craving for something not so healthy and completely give in. (Would you believe that someone just came in my office with a bucket FULL of halloween candy and chocolate and insisted that I grab tons of it, in which I did. For shame.)
I want chocolate!
I hate chocolate.
I'm never eating again.
It's a vicious cycle, my friends.
Does everyone struggle with this or were you all just born healthy?
