a different kind of workout

So we went to a DJ Tiesto concert last night. I think I danced for about 3 1/2 hours straight. Nothing extremely strenuous ... just constant. Great concert ... had a blast despite the cigarettes and pot. There wasn't a lot around me so I was able to deal with it. But what a great alternative workout instead of my usual Sunday morning cardio session.

Even though I have 5 weeks left instead of 4, I'm changing up my circuit training sessions for the next 5 weeks. The weights keep going up and up and I'm almost at stregth training levels. I should increase my reps to 12-15 instead of 10 and up my cardio between sets from 30 to 60 seconds but I"m already working 50 minutes straight. But I'll start with 12 reps instead of 10 to see how much longer this takes.

Had a pretty lazy day ... slept in until almost 10:30 which only happens on EXTREMELY rare occasions .... I feel a little guilty about it ... but not enough to do anything about it. And it's off to bed in a couple of hours. Yeesh.

You know, sometimes it really sucks to be so regimented in my schedule. I used to be a lot more spontaneous and kinda fly by the seat of my pants. But I guess that's what got me into this shape in the first place. So if I have to make some sacrifices to get where I want to be ... I guess I make some sacrifices. It'll be worth it in the long run.

It hit me today ... Barry was so excited about the concert last night and still high as a kite (so to speak) today about it. I tried to think about who or what would get me so pumped up and I couldn't think of anything or anyone. Which is really sad. It feels like I've kinda lost a bit of that spark in my life and I don't know why. But I'm determined to find it again....

    Yay for.........yay!

    No worries about finding someone to get that pumped up about. You've told me you love your life and that's the most important thing. And if we keep planning stuff like this you'll find that spark soon enough!

    Love you,
