Was dragging today and did not want to work out. Forced myself and half way through I got the fever! Then I had to force myself to stop or I would be late for work. Did some weights today.
Walking tonight. Looking forward to it. Still stiff and a bit sore. Hope this feeling goes away SOON!
I didn’t do any work yesterday. Went to a graduation BBQ and did some cleaning around the house.
Today I did some yard work. Moved the front and part of the back. My son Josh came out and finished. I pulled weeds along the fence and house. It started raining so I was already wet and sticky so I went ahead and did my walk earlier in the day. I did 2 1/2 rounds with the dumbbells. I did go as fast as I would have liked. The rain made my knee hurt and the shoes I was wearing were my lawn shoes so my feet were aching. I didn’t throw in the towel but I wanted to LOL. I still did my laps and worked my arms at the same time. I came in showered and went grocery shopping.
Next thing is to work the nutrition in on this. I have been watching what I eat but at the same time eating what I want. I just don’t allow myself to engorge. I am slowly working carbs out my meals and when my diet coke is gone I am going to move to infused waters. I drink a ton of water every day but I love my pop! My daughter is wanting to lose some weight so we are going to hit this nutrition a little harder. I am also going to start weeding out some processed foods. I have found some pretty good sites for recipes so I am going to start using them. If I can eat healthier a meal a day, then days a week I can slowly move to MOST of the time.
Tomorrow I will hit the gym and use some of the Medicine Ball workouts I got from my friend Heather. Looking forward to that. I am also going to start making my own breakfast and bringing to work. I don’t eat until after my workout and I have been getting an Egg White Delight and a yogurt Parfait from McDonalds or a veggie omelet with egg beaters and 2 pieces of dry wheat toast from the cafeteria at work. I am going to make my own scrambled omelet and have some protein oatmeal in place of the toast. Hopefully this will be healthier! I am going to take my lunch tomorrow and make a salad out of the chicken breast I made today and some strawberries I have. 2 better meals. I will weigh tomorrow and see if I have lost any weight. See you then.
This morning I worked out before work. I tried to be cute and add some dumbells to my workout on the treadmill. I eventually got tired closed my eyes and slip off the back of the machine. LOL I put the dumbells down and got back on. My legs are really sore but I keep going.
Tonight I lost both my walking partners. I put in the earphones and went at it. I went a whole extra lap and my shirt was completely drenched by the time I got home. I did the last two laps with my dumbbells I have at home. Stepping up my game.
King size to Queen. First goal lol 🙂
I started the slow transition to change a few months back. I fell of the wagon and I have found a new wagon. 2 weeks ago I started going into work early a few times a week to work out before starting. We have a gym onsite and I paid to join. My plan was to walk at night. I was lazy and didn’t walk at night for almost a week but I am back on track. Today I worked out at the gym and came home and worked up a good sweat walking. My daughter, Breanna, and friend Tasha walk with me. I left them behind today and stepped up my game. I went an extra half round for good measure. I am not sure if I will be successful but I am going to give it my all. Wish me luck on my Journey to Make a Change for ME!
