This Monday I was wandering through the local shop with the kids. It was MUCH later than normal but between TAFE work and procrastination I hadn’t gotten dinner yet. I looked like hell because I had been busy all day and planning on working out since that morning so I hadn’t showered, hadn’t washed my hair, hadn’t put on makeup… I looked like hell.
One of these days I will be more consistent about writing here :). But unfortunately that wasn’t the last few months. Continue reading
It constantly amazes me how true this is.
This last week has been a bit of a wash. In fact it was a total wash. I achieved next to nothing in the way of study leaving me almost a full week behind!! Not good this early in the semester but I am sure that I will catch up. Continue reading
So I was all dressed and ready to run this afternoon when I decided to scroll on through my instagram posts. I came across a gym selfie taken in April before I left. So I decided to to a progress shot… Continue reading
Well since leaving the upside is that I have lost almost 2 dress sizes. Yay!
I have pretty much been sticking to my regular activities but while I was living with Mum I was running more and then afterwards I started doing my own activities which helped.
At the moment I am taking pole dancing classes and I tell you what those ladies who do this for a living…. wow! They must be a whole ‘nother level of fit! It is hard work! So I did a strength training class at the pole studio on Tuesday which was a challenge. I pulled up sore and sorry on Wednesday. I didn’t get anything done Wednesday or Thursday and today I doubled up and did a strength training class and then the pole dancing class…. I am going to be sore tomorrow! But I’m hoping that I can drop the munchkins with Mum on Sunday and go for a quick run… I can hope right?
Unfortunately I don’t have any recent progress photos… I will need to remedy that asap.
If you are looking for a new class to try for a bit of fun I can’t recommend pole dancing enough it is so much fun.
So it finally got done. This morning was the first lesson at the ice rink. Somehow I remember the rink being bigger, and for some reason I thought it was on a main road instead of tucked away inside of an industrial complex, but I haven’t been there since I was a teenager and even then I was probably not paying that much attention to the location.
Long story short I had a blast. We learned gliding, sculling backwards and forwards, stopping and a few other bits and pieces. I only fell once but it was a good one, I managed to bruise up both the heels of my hand and my elbow. I can’t wait to see what colour it goes. It was a 25 minute lesson and I could have stayed afterwards to practice but I had to leave straight away to get to a counselling session I had set up.
Which is the other big thing from today. I went and had my first counselling session. It was an interesting experience with the counsellor showing allot of the techniques that I have been learning about. That part of it was quite odd, recognising what he was doing and yet falling for it. But overall it was quite cathartic which is always a good thing.
