Trying New Things

26 Jan

Thanks for all the support on my last post. I did it. I dropped A&P and now I will be taking a phycology class on Tuesday nights for 4 freaking hours! That’s a long class! I don’t get out until almost 10PM which really sucks for multiple reasons:

  1. I get up at 5AM on Tuesdays because I work from 6-2, I’m going to be so freaking tried!
  2. No more Biggest Loser 😦
  3. No more pilates/yoga class and legs class with my favorite instructor
  4. The last place I want to be at 10PM is the 4th most dangerous city in America, not to mention the first worse city for assault.

My father is NOT pleased with this late night class, he says I must get a gun permit and I honestly don’t think he was joking!

So as you can tell, I’m still not confident in the choice I have made. But you know what? Life goes on. It’s not about finishing first and rushing through life. I need to chill! My adviser told me, “Well, you know, if you get a 2.0 you’ll still pass the class…” I’m sorry but that was such a stupid statement! Who wants to ‘just pass’? Well, maybe the old me would have settled for ‘just passing’ but I want a 3.5 or higher, please!

Anyway, as far as the food has been I changed it up a little! Now for breakfast I eat a protein-loaded meal such as a smoothie, or some ‘fu scramble w/ black beans. This is just a little test for me.  🙂

Speaking of protein smoothies, I’ve switched back to my hemp protein instead of soy. It’s weird how sometimes I love something but then automatically stop liking it for no reason at all and switch to something else. I’m so silly.

And as far as working out goes….

I’ve been going to the gym like less than 2 times a week; it’s sad.

But I do have some good news!:

So remember how I hated Zumba because it was so awful and confusing? Guess what? My favorite instructor at my gym is now teaching Zumba and I love it! I don’t feel off-beat and behind, it’s great. And you know what else? I’m the youngest one in the class, HA! I love old ladies, they make me feel good about my Zumba skills. However, I am still experiencing crazy blisters on my feet because I’m constantly sweating like a pig! That’s my own fault though, I really need to get some good sweat-proof socks. Any suggestions?

Hopefully with this extra time I have now, I can whip myself back into shape!

Wow this post is all about the new, positive things in my life, I love it.

Have you tried any new fitness classes lately?

Oh, and Katie is having another giveaway! I want this one bad!!!

And did you check out my new side bars, I’m so fancy! —> —>

    I love your new picture at the top of the blog, too cute! And have your tags always said “words I use too much?” Love it! 🙂

    Hooray for positive thinking and decision making! I’m sure with that class letting out so late you can request an escort to your car. My Monday night class lets out late and I always make sure to walk with a buddy… better safe than sorry!

    I love your new side bar! 🙂

    I took a step class a while ago — that was pretty fun. 🙂

    I’ve been looking into hemp protein — is it good? Would you suggest it?

      I like it. The color is weird though… like greenish brown so it doesnt look too appealing.

    You are SO fancy 😉 Congrats on making a choice for te A&P dillemna… I’m sure the new class will work out – as far as the “late night leaving school”, be aware, be safe… and hell get that gun permit! If I could get one here I would lol, it’s SUPER STRICT here in CA… *sigh*

    And I agree on ‘just passing’ a class… I was never that way either – I mean, why settle? Pft. Silly advisor.

    Good luck in the new class, with the new food choices, and Zummba!

    I signed up for a belly dance class last week!

    Once I kick this cold, I might take up Zumba again. I used to go regularly a year ago.

    When I was in school, I used to have those 4 hour classes that lasted until 10pm as well. I hated it because I was always starving by the time I got out.

    I did zumba last quarter and was also a little overwhelmed at times but a lot of the women were older an dmore uncoordinated than me which deeeeefinitley helped 😉

    Good luck with your class, it totally sounds like a bummer that it’s 4 hours long! But I took highschool psychology and it was really interesting, time will fly!

    Funny to see you write that you regularly eat protein-heavy breakfasts. I sort of crave those maybe twice a month. But generally I start my day with some fruit followed by a small handful of nuts.

    To keep things interesting I’ll have a couple berry and soy or almond milk smoothies every week.
