It's nice not to be gaining during this stressful time. I tend to be a very emotional eater, but I have been trying to be very conscious about it in order to avoid/control it. The good news is that one way to avoid snacking is to work out, which has been a welcome distraction. I am working through the Firm Express program, which I really like. I have a Jeff Galloway app for my phone that guides you through walk/run intervals that KJ recommended and my FitBit pushing me to get my steps everyday. I bought a Groupon for two weeks of boxing classes waiting to be redeemed. I have the next boot camp session calling my name. I recently discovered Blogilates and absolutely love her intense pilates-inspired workouts. And I hung out with a friend last night who was very encouraging about going back to the Turbo Kick classes she teaches one night a week. All in all, I have no excuse to not get up and get moving.
The chest strap on my old Polar heart rate monitor broke this week, so I will be winging it in terms of tracking activity until the new one gets here. I've been thinking about upgrading to the FT4 anyway, but the old was was still working just fine. So much for making due and being happy with what I've got. The good news is that I found one on sale - not my first choice color, but a $40 savings is worth it.
I have been feeling really uninspired in the blogging department lately. I hope you bear with me. I just don't feel like I have a whole lot to say right now.
