Natural Hair

This isn't cute anymore:

I’m 31, the new 30 and I’m closer to my goal than when I started this blog. Now I’m trying to stay on the path that will get me healthy and on the other side of the clothing store. I’ve had my revenge moments and they felt great. Now I’m ready for more of those great moments, maybe this year I’ll propel down something, who knows. But I’m held back by 40 less things.

Danger Zone

Even after my post last night I felt like I was in the danger zone. The “not going to the gym” danger zone and the “if I do go I won’t be able to reach my goal of burning 500 calories” danger zone. Sometimes I feel like it’s just not going to happen for me. Since I’ve started back on 1/3 my goal has been to go to the gym Monday thru Friday and burn 500 calories and I’ve hit it, even if I have to go back to the gym. But sometimes it’s hard to get there, but once there it’s easier.

Last night I realized a few things.
-I think I’m smaller than I think I am.
-I can see my feet way better now.
-If I suck in my stomach, I’m skinner than I can ever remember being
-My heart rate has gotten better, at the peak of my workout, I’m not at 80% aerobic for 7 year old. It use to get up to 170+. Now it’s in the 160s.
-I can do better pushups. The majority of them are on my knees but I can and do go lower than when I started out. Last night I busted out 10 good ones in a ROW! And 5 in a row on my toes.

Another awesome thing is that I did 200 crunches!
25 regular crunches
50 - 25 side crunches, each side
50 - Legs fully extended with on foot on top of the other, it was a move on my ab DVD, 25 both legs
25 – legs straight(ish) up and reaching for the toes
50 flutter kicks

I think that’s all I’ve got for right now, the day is getting away from me and it seems like my cube is about to drown in paper, this lady just commented and while I don’t like her, she makes a point, as does my co-worker, there’s no time to deal with filing because once you finish one thing there are 3 others and they are all the most important thing in the world…to who asked for the information. But I really would like to not have so much paper around me.

Also, welcome new readers! I’m flattered, seriously. I feel like I really have to get my shit together if it's not just me reading this.
