I got up and went running this morning. I know if I can just make myself work out for a week, it will get easier and I'll be able to get back into routine. I tried to go to yoga tonight- but the traffic/parking is so horrific up here- that I missed the class AGAIN (2nd time in a week) because I couldn't find a parking spot ANYWHERE in the neighborhood OR parking garage. Frickin LA. The traffic and the rudeness of people is starting to get on my nerves. I find myself screaming the "F" word more and more frequently whilst driving. I'm wondering as I type this when the last time I didn't scream it out as I was in the car lately...has there even been a time since I moved here? I don't think so.
So yeah. I might have to switch some things up so I can actually make my yoga class. I've considered riding my bike to the studio since it's not far away at all. However, traffic is so bad that it makes me nervous to try and ride around on a bike where there are not designated bike lanes. The roads can be narrow! I could go earlier and earlier- but if people don't leave...there's really nothing I can do. I live less than a mile and a half from the studio and I left 30 minutes early today and still missed the class. SOMETHING HAS GOT TO GIVE.
Sorry that this post is all rambling. As I've been thinking more and more about my diet and my workouts, etc, I realize that I have REALLY let things go. I don't even remember all the things I know. I mean, I remember some things, but someone had to give me tips today on how to be healthy. I used to be SO healthy! ;) I forget sometimes that it's an uphill battle. And I will probably never reach the top (which is okay as long as I keep moving upwards). We'll see. It doesn't help that at my new job- everyday there are tons of treats and the whole staff is eating constantly. Today was one girl's birthday so we had cake. One bite with frosting (remember I'm addicted to sugar right now) and I had a stomach ache cause the frosting was so rich. So what do I do? Wipe off the frosting and keep eating cake. Then, after I've justified that piece, someone hands me a fried banana. Are you kidding? Of course I had to eat it- can't be rude to my new colleagues. So yeah...eating is NOT going as planned.
Other than my eating and lack of working out...nothing is new. I'm still bored after I get off work. I stay at work late because there's not much to do at home. I still don't have furniture, so I just sit on a blow up mattress and type on my computer and hope the car alarm going off outside is not my car. Even though the blow up mattress hurts my back, I love my little apartment and my life.
