I made my goal again this week!! It definitely helps that my dad comes over every Monday, Wednesday and Friday so I really don't have any excuse not to work out :-)! I definitely wasn't up for working out on Friday but since my dad was coming over and I really had no reason to cancel him, I went ahead and worked out! I felt great after ward even if I didn't want to do it to begin with. I did 40 minutes of cardio each day - ending with a 3 mile run on Friday plus weight training each of the 3 days!
I need to start focusing more on running for the next 2 months since some of my Big Deal Mom Friends and I are doing a 5k in April! So the first week of February, I will begin doing some running outside to get trained for it! As you might recall, I, ummm, don't do well outdoors. So this will challenge me!
Overall, I am pleased with what I did this week. I did go out for dessert once this week and had movie night and snacks with the family one night. It seems that my body is getting used to the workouts more, and I am not as hungry as I have been.
I haven't been hungry in the mornings so instead of worrying about what to eat or not eating at all, I have been drinking fruit smoothies A LOT, and for mid morning snacks I drink energy shakes. Not very exciting but it works for me right now!
I stuck to my menu plan this week! I feel really good about having a plan each week and sticking to it! This week will be interesting considering that we will be home one night for dinner! WOW! It is going to be a busy week!
I am feeling stronger! That is a good thing! I am still tired and worn out but I continue to stay optimistic that these changes will transform my health. I do have several doctor's appointments in the next couple of weeks, so I will continue to eat healthy and workout until those appointments (and of course after them).
I gained a pound :-(. Net loss of 1.6 pound so far! I am slightly disappointed, I have to admit. But I know that I am doing everything necessary to being healthy and just hoping that the weight will come off soon!
Your turn! Let me know how you are doing on your "healthy" goals!
