Rest or motion?

An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion.

Mr. Isaac Newton

Last week, I worked out more than I planned. It was great. On a scheduled rest day, the weather turned out to be absolutely beautiful so I took to the parkway and got in 5 miles. It was glorious. The next day was another scheduled rest day yet I wanted to do something. It was weird. I wasn’t in the mood for a serious workout but just something. So, I did the 100 workout at home while catching up on Real Housewives.

I did end up taking Monday off which turned out perfect because it was a cold and blustery day.

I hit the gym Tuesday morning and plan on going the rest of the week before work. Three things have helped me wake up & hit the gym in the morning before work:

  • 8 hours of sleep
  • Going to bed on-time (or early?)
  • Daylight savings time

It’s true, sometimes I’m in bed by 9:00 or 9:30. It makes me feel old but whatever; if it helps me get my workout in, then I’m all for it. By doing this, I’m sure to get a full 8 hours of sleep and can still wake up at 5:30am feeling refreshed! Also, because we rolled back the clocks, I still feel like I’m getting up at 6:30am so my body is adjusting to it perfectly.

Eating has been pretty good. I’m getting the hang of tracking exchanges.  I’m still writing down calories and my dietitian hasn’t given me my goal exchanges yet so we’ll see on Wednesday how I’m really doing. On Tuesday for lunch, I didn’t feel like eating the lunch I brought. My boss proposed szechuan and I was totally in! I had kung pao chicken – delish! I felt really guilty after because it feels like such a bad  food but that’s a complex I have to keep working on.

Carlos says he can already tell a difference with my body from the weight training – I love my trainer.

Man – I feel like I have such a support team around me to help me with my healthiness journey:

  • Therapist
  • Dietitian
  • Trainer
  • Carlos
  • Friends

My goal is to just stay in motion and not hibernate this winter away!

  1. I definitely feel more ‘together’ when I get adequate sleep. It sounds like you are doing a great job.

    Hope you have a fantastic week!

  2. As Oprah says….it takes a village.

  3. Good for you. Since the snow, all I want to do is curl up under a blanket with tea and a book 🙂

  4. You forgot one person, you are a part of your support team as well! (And doing a great job, I might say.)

  5. Momentum works both ways! Keep it up!

  6. OOOOOooooh! I’ve been having an easier time getting up to work out in the morning too, and it didn’t even occur to me that daylight savings might be the cause. Womp womp.

    Way to rock the workouts, Jen!

  7. Awesome!! I have to agree with whoever said it takes a village!! I think we have an advantage when we can find supportive people to encourage us. And congratulations on getting married!!

  8. Now that I’m back in Texas (UGH) I am just starting to wake up since the temps are finally bearable. I hibernate in the summer because I HATE HEAT! 🙂 Missing my beautiful Colorado. My body is NOT adapting well to the south. Major health issues. Trying to get back on the health track after the major life upheaval of moving to a place I abhor. Hasn’t been easy. I haven’t been comfort eating. Is there such a thing as comfort starving? I know that can’t be healthy either. 😛
