So I’m attempting to create a new way of thinking for myself. I’m not saying that after this semester with the drinking and throwing up and downward spiral that I just became a happy person again. I still constantly feel like unhappy, it’s mostly geared nowadays towards my body. I want to be skinnier. So I’ve come to a few conclusions along with a bunch of wonderful motivation pictures that I will sprinkle all over this post like toppings on a pizza. But I was talking with Matt (the guy I work with, in case you forgot) and he showed me a workout program called Crossfit it’s like super hardcore parcore (that’s my new saying btw) and the video that really stuck with me today is here. It’s about these women who through this program have come to a new realization that beautiful isn’t necessarily skinny, but fit. Having a body that can accomplish things and is powerful and not just “good-looking” but is actually capable of doing hard work.
So I’m currently focusing on my running, basically getting my mileage back up there around my slightly hectic schedule. Well, not hectic exactly more like simply time-consuming since my internship goes from 9-5 p.m. but my mom usually has to drop me off around 8 in the morning. I usually just take that time in the morning to read/practice my LSATs because I take them for the 1st time next week, but that’s a different topic entirely so I digress…
So like I said working in running is a problem, but one that I’ve now fixed with my friend Renee aka Ne Ne. We’ve decided to start running in the morning at 6 a.m. because it works in both our schedules. I was already running in addition to our Insanity workouts and Ne Ne wanted to, but wasn’t motivated enough to do so on her own (or so she said). This way we get 2 workouts in a day and quite frankly I think we see more of each other than our families do.
So that’s going on. And unfortunately Ne Ne and I had decided to redo week 2 of Insanity. Technically for us week 2 was last week, but due to a series of unfortunate events we only did 2 of the days last week and so we didn’t feel that it was right to continue to week 3 because we didn’t really do week 2. So we are currently set back a week, but hey maybe it’ll be good for us in the long run.
So that is basically what is going on in the work out world of Sara currently. And quite honestly it is now 10 p.m. and I happen to be exhausted. So instead of continuing on and informing you of the coolness that occurred at my internship today, I think I shall throw up the rest of the motivational pictures and head to bed. After all I wake up at 5:30 a.m. now…
Besides I have tomorrow to tell you all about my women’s equality stuff. But if you are super curious and you live in New York, simply google Governor Cuomo’s 10 point Women’s Equality Act. I’ll update you on all the info tomorrow or the next day depending upon how busy I am.
So Until later, TTFN.
