Back to Work

Today is Labor Day, and in New Jersey, kids generally go back to school soon after.  Being a teacher, this means the end of summer and back to work for me.  This summer has been difficult for me in the health department. Nothing life threatening, but I was diagnosed with adenomyosis. I never heard of it before I saw it written on the test report.  I don’t want to spend a lot of time here talking about it, other than to say that because of it, I gained weight over the summer.  Ugh.

So now that school is starting up again, I am getting back to working out. My favorite is the 21 Day Fix.  I used to be a Beachbody Coach, until I realized that “coaching” really wasn’t  for me. However, I LOVE the Beachbody workouts and I remain a Beachbody member.  (Google it, if you don’t know what it is.) I am starting the 21 Day Fix again tomorrow, and am going back to work tomorrow.  Getting healthy seems to go hand in hand with the routine of going back to work.

I also joined a DietBet. Autumn Calabrese (the 21Day Fix girl) is running a fall DietBet, so I hope it goes well.  The goal is to lose 4% of your body weight, which sounds very doable. HOWEVER, for me that translates to about 7.5 pounds in 4 weeks. I have never been able to lose more than a pound a week.  I am going to have to get serious.  The last time I got serious about working out I actually lost about 12 pounds and was in great shape.  I just need to stay motivated!
