Emotional week…

Ups and downs, both in food, scale and moods. It’s time for the weather to change and then I think things will be better too.

I still haven’t decided about the Zumba yet only because I have to wait to see what my daycare calendar looks like (I work 12 hours a day but sometimes it starts at 5 am and other times 8 am) but if I can get to 80% of the classes I’ll go for it. I really want to try it and if I spend the money I know I’ll go.

I’m off early tonight so can go and work out and since I have some frustrations that need to come out I’m going to work hard. I read today on a biking blog that in an hours time she rode over 20 miles. We are limited on time at the gym when it’s busy so I get in about 35 minutes and I go 6.5-7.5 miles and I thought that was pretty good cuz I’m trucking right along but I guess that’s not great. I did just start riding so I’m betting like walking to jogging to running it just gets better. Last May I couldn’t jog one telephone pole to the next and now I can run at 5 mph for 20-25 minutes so that just means biking will get easier too. Maybe the swimming will too. I have gone from 10 laps in 30 minutes to 14 laps in 35 minutes. Still 28 days to finish up my mini triathlon but only about 15 days to work out. I can do it. I’m trying to get in a least 4 times a week and so far so good.

Saturday is Moonlight skiing at Mille Lacs Kathio State Park and it’s suppose to be in the 20’s so it’ll be so nice to go and enjoy. Mike and I did spend the money this year for ski passes and have used them lots so it has paid off.

So there’s my plan, idea and rest of the week/weekend. I’ll be back next week with my weight and some pictures of our skiing and anything else I can think of.

Be good, follow the plan, talk to Allan if you have questions or concerns and drink your water. Take care everyone, blessings to you all!!

Enjoy the skiing. I have not tried Cross country skiing, yet, but that is definitely something I would like to do before winter is over. Sounds like your season pass was really worth it. have a great weekend, Julie!

12 hour days are good in that a little time goes a long way!
Zumba is good - either way, I know you'll have a blast!

zumba at the gym is FUN! you will laugh, try harder, and get a better workout. However, if you can try aq class before committing it might be a great idea. i luv cross country skiing..only did it once ...but it was a good one.

Have fun skiing, that is something that I have never done but always wanted to try!

My friend, Tammy wants us to try Zumba, I am not in very good shape yet for long cardio but the infomercials make it look like fun. I think I will give it a try. If you try it first, let me know how you like it.

Be safe and blessed!!
