New tattoo

I was going to wait to get this tattoo till I got to a certain goal. But things changed and I may not be around here when I reach that goal and I wanted this artist to do it.

So yesterday I got my zombie pin up girl tattoo!!! And I love it! It's on the outside of my left thigh. Now I just need it to heal quick because pants and I are not friends while its healing :p

Anyway I need to find something to put on my legs as I need to go catch a ferry soon! :p

Feeling defeated

Ugh... I am having a hard time being committed to exercising and getting back into shape.  It seems like the more I do the harder it is.  For the past four weeks I have been busting my but at the gym and working out - sometimes even twice a day.  Watching what I eat.  Haven't been keeping hydrated (maybe that is the issue?) and I just don't know!

And Monday and Tuesday this week have been killer.  My sleep pattern is a mess!  Not just I can't sleep (which is normal)... I am finding it extremely difficult to stay awake during the day, I am feeling exhausted, I have been falling asleep as soon as I get home from work... missing gym classes and workouts!  Hopefully I can get this sleep sorted out as I am going out on a group of ambulance shifts starting Saturday and I can't been exhausted for those! Also I will be working 6pm to 6am on Halloween (which will probably be a gong show!)

So now it is almost 1am (Tuesday night/Wednesday morning) and I am awake because I fell asleep after work.

Back to the weight loss (non-loss) disappointment .. some people say it may not be moving because I am building muscle BUT I haven't really lost any inches.  I guess for the rest of this week I will need to try and up my H2O intake and see how much that helps.

I am kinda just watching calories as well as following the old weight watchers plan as WW is how I lost weight the first time around! (Still super disappointed in myself for gaining it all back and having to do this all over again!)

Also my MCpl wants me to join CrossFit which I would love to do BUT the first 15 learning classes cost $495 and I just do not have the money for that!!  I want to find a gym here like Level 10 Fitness that I went to in Saskatchewan but so far no luck!  I have however found a kettlebell class & I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!  I could do kettlebell all day everyday if I knew how to put a stupid routine together!!

I find that is the hardest part about working out... I can run (that's easy!) I can lift weights... I just don't know how to put your exercises together so that they flow and work well.  I know there is lots of lists of workouts on the internet... I need to sit down one night and go on a search and see what I can find or create!

Anyway, I am feeling a bit better & I should try to go back to sleep as 6am comes early!

Edit:  I just looked at my inches measurements and I guess I have lost a few inches!  Just not feeling it in my clothes and stuff yet! :p

Weekends are killer

So once again I have over indulged on the weekend which lead to a not so well weigh in!

Mind you last weekend was thanksgiving and spent it with family I haven't seen in ages!  So I am okay with the fact that I stayed where I was since I didn't exercise at all!

I am on holidays right now so that makes it a little harder to keep on track but I am done visiting my family this week so it shouldn't be too bad.  Since Monday I have been doing great with watching what I eat and exercising! :)  Also my family is working tomorrow so I am hitting the gym!

I went to the gym the other day with my friend and busted my ass! It was so amazing!  We had to leave as she needed to get back to her kids but I felt like I could have stayed another hour!  Could be the fact that we practiced IV's that day and ran some normal saline into our veins.... or it could have just been a good day!

I am going to kettlebell classes again! AMAZING!!!  I love them!  I am so sore from yesterday though as I used a weight that was a little to heavy for me BUT if I keep using it it should get easier and I should get stronger! :)

I feel like the motivation I have been trying to get going ALL year is finally kicking in! Thank gawd! I need to get my butt into shape so I am not the fat kid at basic training!!!  Eeek!!

Anyways I should get a good(ish) sleep tonight (I am sleeping on a couch) so I can get a great workout in tomorrow!  I am looking forward to it :D

Busy busy

Visiting with family is doing very bad for me watching what I eat and exercising. The exercising has not happened at all! :( wah

This is crappy. I understand that sometimes things get busy but grrrrrr. I know Monday I should be able to get back into it but I feel like these last few days set me back. Poo! I would say tomorrow would be better but we are going out for supper tomorrow. Ahhhh. Lol. Anyways it's super late and bed time :p

Feeling sore but good! :)

Went for a bike ride this evening and have determined that I suck at bike riding! I can't make it up hills!  It was so exhausting!  I tried gearing down going up hills but it was still super had and by bike kept clicking and not sitting in gear properly so I think I need a 'how to change gears' class! hahaha!  Oh well, at least I am trying! :P

but it is getting late and I gotta be up early... ah, yay for vacation days coming soon :)

I know it has only been two days but I am super impressed with myself so far this week.... and may be working out 3 times tomorrow! Eek!  hehe!

So weigh in today wasn't great since I kinda blew it on the weekend BUT i went for a 5.5km run today and went to a kettlebell class!!!

I LOVE kettlebell classes so this is something I will definitely stick with over the new few months!

But it is late and I need to shower and hit the bed for an early morning!!

So happy I found a kettlebell class & this time I have friends that are coming too!! :D:D:D
