Happy Valentine’s Day, quitter!

I woke up this morning at 6:20AM, reached for the alarm, and just felt like crap. Not “sick”, just sore. My neck hurt, my shoulder hurt reaching over… my mind had raced all night with dread about it being Monday again, and I woke up a bundle of nerves. I would like to say this is workout timeslot fail, where it’s just too damned early and I can’t get into the schedule without feeling off, but I think there’s a mental aspect to it as well. I’m just not having any fun anymore with bootcamp. All we do is group exercise, which sure seems like a healthy thing to do, but I miss the fun and games of the other camp, other instructor, or whatever the difference is. How about a fun obstacle course? How about suicides actually done right? How about it doesn’t matter, because it’s just too damned early.

I want to do a group exercise, but I want it to be something I enjoy and look forward to instead of something I have to talk myself into every day and only want to lie down and die after. That’s too much stress every day.

Thus, I’m ready to go check out the Decatur Jazzercise! 30 days, unlimited classes to try it out, and they have classes 7 days a week. I’m so psyched to do this! Now I can go back to my running trainer with Kit, and actually gradually improve instead of just trying to do something else on top of bootcamp running and ending up feeling terrible.

I sat down this morning and sent Dez a message about me dropping out, and then to Shannon letting him know why, and that I just wasn’t interested in a bootcamp type workout anymore apparently. Doing something healthy for yourself is supposed to make you feel good. Sure, working out hard and trying for fast results will leave you sore, but I’ve done that — and we see how well I can stick with it after the classes end. I need to find that healthy thing to do that I’m going to miss when it’s gone instead of enjoying my newfound sleep and non-injury status when it’s over.

Anywho, I’m still logging food and calories. Updated my RDI to account for less exercise immediately, so I”m down to 1800 recomended. Now I’ll just have to see when I can go by Jazzercise and sign up! I called, but they told me I would need to come by in person to officially get into a class with the groupon.
