So I’ve taken a break from the gym the past two weeks. I still go see my trainer twice a week though. My weight has been fluctuating between 243 and 248 for a month. I think (hope) that this is just one of many breaks I will probably take on this journey. I hope that I can eventually get back in the gym every day.
I know that I do not want to workout alone. I dread working out alone. Its so unpleasant to me that I’d rather not go at all than put myself in a depressed funk every day. When I last left the gym I was practically in tears.
So that leaves my only option as the group exercise classes at the gym. My biggest issue is that the classes I want to go to are at like 8:30 am and I sleep till 10 am if not later on most days. I am not a happy camper if I do not get at minimum 10 hours of sleep each night. There are some group exercise classes in the evening and I may have no choice but to switch to evening if I can’t pull this together, but I never feel like working out at night.
I need to train myself to go to bed at 9 pm. The obstacle has been that my favorite tv shows come on at 10pm and I do not have a way to record them. The thing is those shows are on Bravo and Bravo re-runs them a million times during the week but you just have to catch the re-run so technically I should just go to bed at 9pm. The other thing is my boyfriend has very limited times when he can see me so I don’t want to miss out on our karaoke nights or club night just to get in bed at 9pm. I love having fun with him when we get a chance and I won’t give it up for anything. Mostly it’s a matter of training myself to go to SLEEP, not just go to bed, but go to SLEEP at 9pm. If I could do that and get up at 7am , I could make it to my 1 hour group exercise class.
so for now my goal is to work on getting to bed at 9pm.
BTW, It’s 11:22 pm as I type this post and I just finished watching The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
so far no bueno towards my goal.
