So, now that I've embarked on this journey - I realize that I need constant pep-talks. I'm constantly giving myself a pep-talk! When I'm making food choices, when I need to exercise...all the time.
I woke up at 6:30 on the dot this morning. I immediately thought, "I feel really good!" I slept SO well! I know it's because I did Turbo Kick pretty close to bedtime last night. So, I'm thinking, "I should really go out and run this morning." I had just enough time. I sat up on the edge of the bed and just sat there. I knew I should go........but I was so torn between snuggling back underneath the covers with my hubby. To sleep for a 1/2 hour. I mean, was it really worth it?? I had to do the pep-talk. After about 5 minutes, it worked. I went out to do C25K. It was challenging - since I started a new week today. The running was upped on me today. From 60 seconds at a time to 3 minutes. That's a pretty good jump. I mean, I've been conditioned to do over 3 miles before....but that was a while back! It's rough starting over! The cooler temperature totally helped me out this morning, though. I REALLY need to start getting up and working out in the a.m.
So, it's confession time. Some of you from Facebook know that I checked in at Little Mexico last night. *sigh* I didn't eat well. Granted, Scott & I typically order fajitas and share them - and did so last night. I guess it's not horrible if we're sharing. However, the CHIPS get me every time! I could probably LIVE on chips & salsa. Of course, our waitress asks right out of the gate if we wanted cheese dip. Dang it....OF COURSE I WANT CHEESE DIP!!!! Ha! So, we got it, and it was so good! I ate way too much of it. I guess it's good to do that every once in a while, though. As long as you're back in the game immediately! I did work out last night - so I'm hoping it didn't completely sabotage me!
So, originally I had decided to weigh-in on Wednesdays, since that's the day I started. Earlier this week I realized that I started Weight Watchers on a Thursday - so that should be my official weigh-in. Tomorrow I will post the results. Now I somehow need to get C25K on that schedule. Then everything will be in sync.
