Well, I've been getting in more riding days. And we are halfway through the semester so the end is near! I've been studying for midterms today is my first one... I'm a little nervous but I'm sure I'll do fine.
Lent started yesterday. I figured I might as well pick something hard to give up this year... I've decided to go with bread. I never realized how much bread I eat until yesterday when I was thinking about what to eat and everything I could think of had bread! But I got a salad which was amazing! I've been really enjoying them the past couple of weeks. I think it's because it reminds me of spring/summer and I just want it here already! I am still allowing pasta and rice and other certain flour foods but sliced bread, hoagies/subs, and such are off the menu. I figure if I can make it through these next 6/7 weeks without bread I'm going to give it up altogether.
The 40/50 degree days are coming back and daylight savings is Sunday. Which means.... I'll be walking again! I'm so excited because when I started walking over the summer I lost almost 10 pounds from that alone! I believe the cutting of bread, walking (eeeeekkk can't wait!!!!), and kickboxing work outs will really push me in the right direction.
Even though I am not exercising as much as I would like, the little changes I'm making and my excitement for the spring really give me hope to get back in shape. I want to be muscular again. I don't want to be skinny. I want those amazing biceps I was getting from kickboxing, and the shapely legs without getting "chub rub". The warmer weather is putting my mind in the right place.
Let's do this!!!!
