Gamer Girl Gets Thin

{December 1, 2010}  

This is our town right now. See how you can’t see the difference between the road and sidewalk? Yep. SNOW. Winter. Me dreaming of moving back to California.

I had such a great workout last night, one of the best I’ve had in the last month of unmotivated slump. DH and I did Thanksgiving on Monday so I doubled up my workout last night- strength training first then went to¬† my dance class. We did this routine that we haven’t done since I first went almost a year ago. I did so much better than I ever had before! Yay! I felt amazing and like I’ve come so far. Plus it’s a really fun routine and all of my gym friends were there. It really felt like running a dungeon you haven’t in 20 levels and seeing just how much easier it is. Still not perfect but soooo much easier.

Andy and his family are coming this weekend! I’M SO EXCITED. They’re totally going to make up for winter ruining my week.


{July 16, 2010}   Motivation

One of my fave things about getting the 10 levels (10, 20, 30, etc.) is that it’s so motivating to keep going. You get new skills and talents, your gear increases significantly and, starting 60 and up, you get new zones! It’s so great!

That’s a lot how I’m feeling about my fitness right now. Meeting my birthday goal was so motivating for me to keep going. Lavish compliments from my family didn’t hurt things either. :)

I think this is one of the reasons setting incremental goals to our larger one is so so vital. The task, as a whole, can be so daunting. I know that my poor priest is chilling at level 63 because it just feels so far to get her to 80 and the to get her well geared and ready to raid once I’ve gotten 80. The thought of losing 30 more pounds can be even more overwhelming. But, when I break it down into smaller pieces with goal dates, I feel so hopeful that I can make those goals! Level 80? Forever away. Level 60 in my fitness? I can totally do that! Only 10 pounds to go!
