I made my goals again this week! And even threw in an extra quickie in cardio yesterday, because I really needed some pizza!
I am "training" for my first ever 5k. So I have really been working on getting my cardio in with each workout!
- Monday - ran 3.35 miles plus did weight training
- Wednesday - ran 3.25, no weights, just plain tired!
- Friday - ran 3.25 plus weight training
- Saturday - 27 minutes of hard cardio (1.5 miles running plus some elliptical work)
I can honestly say that I no longer crave fast food! And an added benefit, the boys don't either. We all are perfectly content to make it home from wherever we are at and eat an healthier meal! And I guess another added bonus is that I am no longer able to eat as much as I previously eating. After Wednesday's workout, I was beat. Weak and starving, I made a HUGE bowl of whole wheat spaghetti and about half way through it I was full! I pushed it aside and didn't feel the need to continue. So I know after weeks and weeks of changing my eating habits, I am finally able to notice a difference. But I STILL crave pizza!! I really could live on pizza and pizza alone :-).
Okay so besides the last minute pizza dinner yesterday, we stuck with it! We enjoyed the two new dishes: the low sodium tacos (I made it with 1/2 96% lean beef and 1/2 ground 99% fat free turkey) and the white chili! Both are keepers in my recipe book!
I lost 2.6 pounds this week, making a total net loss of 5.8 pounds. I'm getting there, slowly but surely. Even though I have lost more weight, none of my clothes are fitting well yet (I mean my "fat" clothes even, not even going to get out my skinny clothes for a few more weeks)
Your turn! Let me know how you are doing on your "healthy" goals! I want to know what things are working well with you and what things aren't! Let's do this together!
