The Good: Zumba is tonight!! I have been looking forward to getting back in the routine of going to Zumba on Thursday nights. I went almost every Thursday this past summer and LOVED it and then got in the craziness of school and stopped. I did have to remind myself today that I AM going tonight whether I feel too tired to go or not. I am exhausted after a VERY long week but I cannot break a commitment to myself. It also helped that I invited several people to come too so there is my accountability! :) I am looking forward to a fun and cardio-kicking workout!
The Bad: I hate not having a plan for dinner. It always seems that it happens once a week which isn't bad but I can tell a difference when I don't plan. I feel uneasy because I am not sure what calorie count it will have or if I will have enough calories left to eat whatever we choose and I feel like I am more vulnerable. Usually on the nights I forget to plan dinner we get Zpizza which is a nice change for the nightly cooked meal. So, tonight Zpizza it is after Zumba! I am looking forward to it! I do need to make that a goal of mine next week to write down my weekly menu so I don't feel trapped or vulnerable. I also want to try a new recipe this weekend or next week to add to my weekly rotation.
The Ugly: I hate feeling stressed. I know it is just a natural part of living in a busy world but I feel like it takes so much out of me. I am proud that I now deal with stress by exercising which always makes me feel awesome when I am finished but I do wish I could find some other ways to de-stress, especially at school. I think I need to find me a stress ball to keep at my desk! :)
