So it’s been a week since I’ve worked out. For about a week and a half to two weeks, I’ve had this crazy cough. I haven’t really had anything else associated with the cough (although today my nose has been a bit runny). And the thing with this cough is that it’s incessant and I’m almost positive it all stems from postal nasal drip. Agh! So needless to say, I’ve been eating not so well because I feel like crap. And listen, I know what I need to do, but I just keep doing bad. And I certainly don’t want to work out to only end up in a coughing fit, which happens frequently. Plus, you know everyone will give the judgey look because a gym is a place to promote health, not decline it. That being said, oddly enough, I’m pretty sure some crazy Latin lady at my Zumba class from 2 weeks ago was the one who got me sick, because she was dancing next to me and coughing up a storm. Betch… ugh. Rudeeee.
Sooo… I went on Amazon this weekend and ordered the Eat Smart scale (left). It’s very nice, fairly inexpensive and gets the job done. It was prime eligible, so it got here Monday. Gosh I love Amazon Prime! Anywho, so I even weighed myself and was blownnn away! Wow… yikesss… yeeesh! Do you think that makes me buckle down, no? All I know is that I need some soul searching. I need to ‘get there’. Like how is it that I see how big I am: in the mirror, on the scale, in my clothes, in the way people look at me… yet it’s not enough?? I honestly don’t know that anyone’s advice can help me, it’s just something that needs to come from within. Like they say, you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink it. Same thing… I’ll only change when I’m good and ready. I just know that I NEED to be ready asap… because this ish is out of control!
I have found a work out buddy though, she’s a family friend and a real cool gal. She’s got weight to lose and isn’t a skinny winny, so I think it’ll be a good pairing because we’ll be equally struggling with the cardio and weight lifting pieces together and will be able to hold each other accountable. But I need a workout buddy, because that’s what has motivated me before. Knowing that someone is counting on you and waiting for you to be there, is key for me. She’s going to switch to the gym I go to and we’re going to work out together a few times a week. I have no clue how to weight lift, so I’m hoping we can learn together with the help of some of my cousins who also go to the same gym.
In short, just hoping to feel better soon. I’m also possibly looking into going to a fat camp for a week for some hardcore boot camp inspiration. I’m currently look into Miraval Resort & Spa or Canyon Ranch which are both located here in Tucson. It’s gonna be pricey, but it might be worth it! We’ll see…
Feel free to yell at me in the comments below, I need tough love. lol
