I’m trying. Trying to balance everything and blog. Fingers crossed!
Right now I’m a little embarrassed that my blog title even had the word “fit” in it, seeing that I’ve been severely lacking in the fitness department. Maybe I should rename the blog to just “Talker”. I’m good at that. 🙂
I’m working on the Fit. I’ve been working on it since I started working in July and it’s been tough. My new job has more responsibility and therefore longer hours. What used to work for my schedule doesn’t anymore. I used to go to boxing at 6a, it ended at 7a, I was home by 7:15 I would shower and get ready for work. Now I leave the house around 7:45a, so 6a is a little too late. 😦 (Maybe if I lay my clothes out the night before and don’t dry my hair, I can make it work.) Or I used to get out right around 5 and hit the gym, still getting home at a normal time. Now I don’t get out until around 5:30/6 and there’s more traffic on my commute. Not to mention that after a 10 hour day, I’m kind of just ready to go home and collapse.
But I’m working on it. Thankfully spin guarantees that i’m at the gym twice a week. I’ve also tried to hit the late boxing class (7:15p) at least once a week. It’s frustrating that it hasn’t been an easy transition, but I am trying. So enough of my excuses…
Some random things this Monday.
This article about Crossfit. I’m not a Crossfit fan. While I can appreciate some aspects of it, other elements just don’t seem right to me. I thought the article was interesting. (note: it doesn’t portray Crossfit very positively)
I may have mentioned them before, but I think they’re worth mentioning again. I’m not a huge chip person (I tend towards sweets) but I can eat an entire bag of these in one sitting (not something i’m proud of, just being honest).
My bike. That’s the old photo from the day we picked it up. My poor bike probably has NO CLUE who I am and now I’m going to hop on it on Sunday and ride 30+ miles. Should be interesting!
I know I can do it, but I’m definitely not at all prepared or trained for this ride. I know it’s bad and I know I should have rode a ton this summer, but for some reason I didn’t. And DJ reminds me of this every opportunity he gets and it makes me crazy.
So that’s about it for now. I’ll share a playlist later in the week. Have a great Monday!!
