I'm like a lot of other crazy bloggers and I like to write a bunch of posts ahead of time and schedule them all out. Some bloggers don't do that. Some of you are just that awesome and you are able to write something new every morning. That shiz is crazy. But I commend you all for it. Most of my posts though, are pre-written & scheduled.
This is very raw. I'm not editing this or re-reading it. And in about 15 minutes, I'll publish it.
I rarely do these. But I just wanted to give you a "here's what has been going on in my life lately" kind of post.
First things first. A lot of you have been asking me how my 25 Acts of Kindnessis going. I love you all for being so interested in that. It is going so well. I actually thought I would finish it during my birthday week... & I pretty much have, except a few things. Once I am completely finished, I will compile them all together & post here about how it all went & what I learned from it. So, stay tuned!
Scott & I went sugar freealmost a month ago & some of you have been asking me how that is going. It's going WAY better than I expected! But, I'm going to be brutally honest with y'all here, my biggest weakness is ice cream. And right now, I have a box of ice cream in my freezer because it's that time of the month & my self control only goes so far I become a raging b*tch if I don't get some kind of ice cream at least once or twice during the week of Aunt Flo's visit. In my defense, it's fat free. But it does have 4g of sugar per serving. So.... fat free... shhhmat free.
Besides that though, it has been awesome. I have lost a total of 14lbs so far. That's pretty incredible for just cutting out sugar.
I feel really great about that number. I just wish I felt better about my body.
The problem is that the 5am club has come to a screaming halt. When Scott started school, he decided that the 5am thing was not going to work for him anymore. He already doesn't get much sleep, and wanted as much time in the morning to sleep as possible.
Soooo, I continued my 5am workouts without him. For a while. Then... I missed him. Got bored. And, eventually stopped to enjoy my morning cuddles with him.
To say that I am disappointed and rather pissed at myself would be an understatement.
So, I've started them again! And guess what? IT SUCKS! I HATE THEM.
But, it makes me feel good when all is said & done. Sometimes I need to fight with myself for 20 minutes before I get out of bed. But that point is that I eventually do. And after a tough workout, I hop into the shower, and I end up being so grateful that I woke up & did it.
I even started the Couch to 5K program that everyone rants and raves about. I did it once and never finished it, so I'm excited to actually follow through until the end.
I am also doing yoga. I used to do it in college & I remember it being so peaceful and relaxing after a few weeks. It does take a while to really start to love it again. Yoga kicks my butt. It's hard stuff. No joke.
Of course, the biggest change in my life pretty soon is that I am finally going back to dance. After 2 years of being without it, I will be dancing again. Man. It feels so good just to say that. I've missed it so much.
Long story short--- I'm so sorry not sorry for the abundance of 5am club, C25K, yoga, & sweaty dance pictures that will soon be making quite an appearance on instagram.
I'm totally that person that thinks, "if it wasn't instagrammed, it didn't happen". I guess it's kind of my way of staying true to myself.
Hashtag, I am a wee bit obsessed with documentation.
