WHERE HAVE I BEEN???? Back in the swing of things!

18 Mar

Okay….okay….so I have to apologize for my extremely horrible blogging pattern.  I have a pretty good excuse I think….I was getting ready for one of the most important days of my life….GRADUATION!!! I am proud to say I am officially an alumnus of the University of Florida and I will forever bleed orange and blue!

Now back to this blogging business, so the issue is now I am living an in area where major companies like Comcast and AT&T  do not provide wireless internet….I’d have to get dial up.  So the only access I have to the internet world is the public library or my cell phone and blogging from a cell phone ain’t gona cut it.   NO

In regards to all things fitness, it is safe to say I fell off big time.  Two days after graduation I moved back to my hometown in Arkansas and a few weeks later I started working.  I did go to the gym consistently initially but awful winter weather kept me locked in the house with plenty of good ole country cooking.  Needless to say, I quickly got out of the swing of things and I noticed my body changing almost immediately.  The tight abs and toned arms were getting softer.  Every day I’d say “tomorrow I’ll go” or “it’s too cold”.   All I had was a bunch of excuses.     Then at the end of February, I lost my Papa LC and I turned to food for comfort.   Sweets and fast food became my best friend( I’m pretty sure I was having some serious emotional eating going on).  It is a daily struggle but I am slowly coming out of it.

Today will be my first day in almost six weeks back in the gym so of course I’m going to hate myself with every rep and every step I take during this run tonight.

It’s going to be challenging these next few weeks but I had to remind myself why I wanted to be healthy in the first place!  At the end of the day the core issue is making time for what’s important….even if that means sacrificing an hour of sleep to get in a workout.  Not only that, I’ve got to get back in the habit of cooking everyday and buying more fruits and veggies to have on hand to snack on.   THANK GOD I didn’t put on any weight but I’m certainly not as toned or in shape as I was but hey, I’ve got a good eight weeks before summer starts.  Let’s get it!  Back on track and loving every minute of it.  Y’all won’t be ready for this summer body!!!! I’m getting fit and staying that way!

Time Management: Finals and the Gym

18 Apr

Alright so I’m a Senior at the University of Florida and the next few weeks consist of final exams, projects, and papers. Because of that, so far I have missed two days for the gym….and you know what….it is soooo aggravating! I just want to be able to get a good hour work out in without my mind wandering to the assignments and exams that I have to do. I would love for the next few weeks to move quickly but I know they will be painfully slow so what is a girl to do about the possibility of missing more days for working out while trying to prepare for my exams?

Right now, all I want to do is scream my head off….I can’t seem to get any early morning workouts in because I spend late evenings trying to review for exams etc…..then normally I am sleeping during the day(after my classes) to try to make up for the sleep I miss in the evenings due to studying. You see the cycle? I really want to balance out the time but when I’m studying I feel like I need to get through as much material everyday that I can. Not because I’m behind but because the oh so wonderful University of Florida seems to love the idea of cumulative exams and 40page projects and 10 page papers. Not only that UF loooovees to schedule your final exams back to back so you literally are driving yourself to your wits end while you are trying to maintain a semblance of a life.

I just want to workout….is that so much to ask? I guess the best thing I can do right now is eat healthy for the next few weeks and try to do squats and lunges and stretching and all that til I can get back into someone’s weight room. Well I guess this post is really just a rant.

Stay Sweet,
KL
