{April 13, 2013}   04.13.2013 – Insomnia

Insomnia is such a fail…but it leads to late night blogging.  That’s when all the best blogging occurs, right?

I should be sleeping since I have a doctor’s appointment in the morning, but I’m never much of a sleeper when my mind has a lot to think about. And the past two days have left me with a lot to think about.  I have also revised my workout plan twice since yesterday, which is always fun and probably a bit psychotic.  Basically, I’m keeping Insanity in the mix, but I’m alternating it with Jillian Michaels, Bob Harper, and trips to the gym.  I also am going to focus on some yoga practice, if only on the weekends.  I am not at a point in my life where I feel like doing yoga every day, but it definitely is something that I know keeps my muscles healthy and it doesn’t hurt that I love showing off my hella awesome flexibility.

If I like hot yoga, I’ll probably keep it to twice a month for money purposes until I get a better job that allows for a few more frivolous spending choices.  I am hoping that the two yoga classes I am looking to attend will connect me with some fitness types in my area that will in turn open doors to newer fitness options.   I am still self-conscious, and I can’t see myself meeting up with people in hopes of keeping up to their fitness level, but it is something I see in my future.  Hopefully this future will come sooner than later.  I am going to need a lot of distractions from boredom this summer.

I’ve gotten distracted and this post has become pointless.

Later Days,

After an extended vacation from my daily trips, I hate the gym.  I hated it yesterday and I’m probably going to hate it today.  I also hate that I’m starving right now and I’m not supposed to eat for at least another hour.  Basically, I’m just in a hating mood today. 

But in a positive light… I am looking forward to this weekend.  Two out-of-town trips in which I will probably see two of my most favorite people.  That is something to look forward to.  Furthermore, even if I do hate the gym right now, I am looking forward to starting Insanity again.  I am also looking forward to things I am not at liberty to discuss on this blog… get your mind out of the gutter, people, it’s nothing like that.

I am hoping to add some yoga to my workout this afternoon depending on how I feel.  I know that I am going to have to find a way to keep stretched out once I add Insanity back into the mix.  I am hoping that I will do Insanity Thursday – Tuesday, then have a “rest” day on Wednesday.  During my rest day I am going to try to add in a bit of extra cardio in the form of biking at the gym.  I will also be taking advantage of the sauna at the gym whenever possible, which will probably be two to three times a week.  If money permits, I am also considering adding a hot yoga class (I’ve been talking about it for months, and I finally found one…so I just need to do it).  I think the hot yoga will definitely keep my muscles feeling fresh, and any extra yoga during the week will just reinforce that fact.  I am mostly adding the extra cardio at the gym to allow myself to feel like I am still getting my money’s worth while I am doing most of my working out at home. 

I might also consider setting extra goals within my Insanity regime and rewarding myself accordingly.  Like if I improve by so much on the fit Test every two weeks, I can treat myself to a groupon massage.  I have my little 190lb. spa day planned, but that will be at home.  I need something that involves professionals to look forward to as well.

This unorganized post was brought to you by extreme boredom and avoidance of grown-up tasks.

Later Days,
