headstands are hard

Our summer trip is a little over one month away and even though I will not be required to be “bikini ready” this year, bikini season is also rapidly approaching as well.

I have been half-assed working out here and there for the past two weeks, but this morning I decided to really give it a go. I resumed my Slynnro leg work out and added some ballet bar style pliés and then went on to do my Wii Fit strength exercises + yoga. Once I completed that, I decided to see if I could do a headstand anymore. Don’t ask me why, as I have no earthy idea, but headstands are HARD. I remember when I was a kid they were like the easiest thing in the world and I didn’t even have to start in frog position to do them. Now I’m a shaky froggy fool. It’s pathetic really, but at least I was able to get my legs up in the air and hold them without the use of a wall, that’s something-right?

Anyway…I am really hoping that I can stick to working out and get my lungs back in shape. I am starting with strength and yoga but within two weeks, I want to start adding aerobics back into the mix. With my asthma and the high altitude of Denver (and the surrounding areas) I am worried about how I will fare with all the hiking I hope we will be doing on our trip.

I also recently switched to a generic version of Topamax going from $50 a month to $10. I am hoping it won’t be a noticeable change in the results, as I’d really like to save that money, especially now that my Nasacort is costing $50 a month and I have to be on Zyrtec daily as well. Unfortunately, I’ve been noticing an uptick in my headaches anyway and I really hope I don’t have to up my dose. That 20lb weight loss I mentioned the other day is through nothing other than this pill and if we up it, I’m afraid of how much more weight (and hair) I am going to lose as a consequence. Hopefully it’s just a hormone imbalance, which will be remedied when I go see the girly bit doctor on the 12th.

Anyone have any tips on staying motivated to work out more often? I’m finding it a struggle to be consistent.
