Life has been so go-go-go lately that I am finding myself thinking of updates I need to post….but never actually typing them out. I wish someone would invent a device that pulled my thoughts out of my head, organized them into a post and updated for me! 🙂
So, how did November go? I’d give myself a B- overall. I rocked barre classes. I got tons of walking during the day in. But, I didn’t lose an ounce. Literally. I am EXACTLY where I was a month ago weight-wise. BUT….my clothes are loose and I *feel* crazy strong. I can hold myself in relevé during Julianna’s whole barre section! HELLO! Member back in August? I could barely stand on tip toes! I’m power-walking to meetings without bring out of breath! All these little things will add up big, I just have to hold on!
December has come in with a bang – crazy projects at work, deadlines, rearranging of schedules 82 times a day. I’m hoping for a slow down next week – I actually didn’t have time to eat lunch 2 days this week because I was so crazed. No food + long day = grouchy *Samantha*
(Note to self: if you packed lunch, you could eat it while at a meeting….just sayin’!)
I’ve been having these moments lately where I step outside myself and reflect on where I am. I think the whole “30 lurking around the corner” thing put me in a foul mood and I need to help justify that I’m OK. I might not be where I wanted, but that’s OK!
During these moments of reflection I notice little things (like when you look closely at a snow globe!) – professionally I have come LEAPS AND BOUNDS from where I was even a few months ago. I am sure of myself. I trust my judgement and I orchestrate plans like a pro! Coming into this new role I never thought I would excel as much as I have – it’s nice to prove yourself wrong! 🙂
In regards to food – I have adopted a bit of a “do I need or want this?” attitude, which I attribute to my time constraints. Junk food doesn’t fill you up. I might want a cookie, but I don’t have the time to be hungry in an hour! I have meetings! Banana, hand full of pistachios, some kind of protein – yes!
Virtual barre has become one of my favorite things over the last few months and now I see myself pushing a little bit harder, adding an extra bit of oomph where I can. The workout is amazing and if I can squeeze a bit extra out of myself before 7am – more power to me! At various moments during the day I find myself doing plies at my desk and thinking of Tanya/Juliana!
Overall my attitude has taken a 180. I don’t dwell on my missteps, I try to find the silver lining and move on when I have a bad day.
(Sidenote: I hate when people say ‘done a 360’….360 degrees is a circle, which would mean you ended up right back where you started. LOL).
So, the first third of this mission was a win – time to make the next 2/3 a SUPER win!
How is everyone doing? Struggling with the copious amounts of holiday parties and food?
