Wow I haven’t updated in a while (sorry!). I’m kind of being lazy. I’m going to stop posting my workouts because that seems to really take it out of me (I write them down in my wkout journal too, so no reason to write everything down here too lol).
Things are going better. I talked to my trainer about some stuff, over-training concerns, etc. She basically told me 5 days/week of cardio (2 hard days, 3 strength training days, 3 easy) should be good. She also said not to worry about my diet at all. So, i’ve been trying to stop counting and what not. She looks amazing, and I found out she has taco bell like 4x a week, and chocolate for breakfast… Now that’s NOT going to be me (my mom’s too much of a health nut, and I have to eat healthy-ish for other health concerns). But, I had 2 slices of pizza the other day and a small brownie, and yesterday I had a cookie AND a clif bar in the same day. Today I had honey nut joe’s o’s despite the 10g of sugar/serving! Yup, i’m bad. The eating healthy hasn’t been getting me a 6 pack, so obviously it’s not what’s going to make or break me. Moderation ftw!
As for XC… I MADE VARSITY!! (I think). But from what coach said, I did ^.^ So, i’m mad happy. It’s crazy though. I joined originally because I just was getting tired of the elliptical. I never had any intentions of getting better, let alone, making it to the top. It’s incredible how my goals have changed. Now, I WANT to be at the top. I want to improve and strive for greatness (lmao, corney). But it’s so true.
The best part about it though, is that I learned that being fit and active doesn’t have to resemble a chore. Yeah, I enjoyed working out on my own (and I still do). But, it’s even better to be with others, and i’m still getting in a great workout, as well as building friendships and having a blast. Unfortunately, I can’t really do zumba or spinning anymore (don’t want to over train) and I won’t be able to do bootcamp come the start of the season. But hey; there’s always the off season. You win some you lose some, and I gotta say, I’ve won a lot this past summer :_)
