Worked up about working out

Some facts that I am just going to have to deal with

1. I might not lose weight the rest of the month with all the birthday celebrations ( Oh well…Feed Me Cake!)

2. A Weight Training schedule is great but I am not sure I am ready to commit 100% to lifting 3 times a week

3. I really want to do more classes at my gym so weight lifting will just have to suffer for a bit


There are a lot of workout related thoughts going on in my head and I know that a lot of them are because I am so used to having a strict schedule for working out. I pretty much took 1 week of triathlon training and then jumped straight into weight lifting training. I love weight lifting, don’t get me wrong; but one of the things I was really excited about when I knew triathlon training was almost over was all the Les Mills classes my new gym offers. So far I have not been to one group exercise class, this just makes me sad. This was my bread and butter of exercise when I first started getting into fitness. I truly miss being in a class and working out. I think I am going to have to hold off on the weight lifting routine (at least being so strict about it) for a bit so I can get some group classes going on. Tomorrow there is a body jam class that I really want to try and I am just going to do it. It means skipping weight lifting this week, maybe for the whole week. I know I can do this on my own I just get so caught up in doing things other people are doing and when I saw that another blogger was doing a weight lifting group with this book I just jumped on the band wagon. But I really miss dancing, like I would miss chocolate if I gave it up for a year(hah fat chance) and I have to do what is right for me. I guess the decision has been made, do what I want to do as far as working out goes. I am not just going to do it because I feel like I have to. I know I benefit from exercise in more ways than one and I have to do what my heart is telling me to do. Geez talk about getting all worked up about working out….BOOYAH.

  1. Wow, I am struggling with strength training so much right now! I love cardio and things like running and spin classes and just don’t get the workout high from weights. I have recently just resigned myself to tiny little weight lifting workouts tacked onto the ends of my other workouts. I’m maybe doing weights twice a week right now but like you totally want to get up to three!
