Psych Out

Okay, not the most auspicious start. I went out to karaoke with some friends last night, and while I was successful in winning the internal food war (I went with the wedge salad with dressing on the side instead of the fried cheesy appetizer goodness that looked sooooooo yummy…!), getting home at 3 in the morning kind of shot my “getting up in time to go to Studio Cycling Class this morning” plan.


But today is another day. I have a treadmill and I’m not afraid to use it!!

Meal-wise is going much better today. I made some “Presto Primavera” for lunch, divvied out the other 3 servings for later and put them in the fridge before even starting to eat, and am pleasantly full without the temptation of going back to the leftovers. Combine that with having oatmeal for breakfast and I’m feeling pretty good about that side of things at the moment.

Tomorrow is New Year’s Eve, and there are no open classes at the gym after about 1pm. Bummer. I’ll have to wait till later this week to jump into a class, but I will be in a class by Friday!


And here we go…

2013 is supposed to be a year of change for me. “Supposed to be” only insofar as I’m tired of how things are right now, and if I want them to be different then I have to do something about it.

I have set a handful of health-related goals for 2013, and the first step towards accomplishing them is joining a gym. I have my initial assessment on Saturday, and am really looking forward to it… even though I realize I’m going to fail miserably at many of the assessment tests. It’s the beginning that has me excited.

I am also taking up a challenge from one of the fitness sites I belong to, which is to try a new class each week. On Sunday they have a “Studio Cycle” class that I’m going to attend. It says all levels are welcome… I hope they truly mean that!
