So, it hasn't been quite a week since I started this journey, but, so far, so good.
I don't have a LOT to report, but, I'm working on it. It hasn't been quite a week, but, I've been working pretty hard. I still don't have a great handle on the eating, but, it's coming along. I have decided to follow the Weight Watchers plan. It just seems like a good fit. I've had this app on my phone for a long time called iWatchr, and it's GREAT. I can log everything I eat, track all my guidelines, and it keeps track of how many points I have left for me. One of my favorite features is that it saves the foods I eat and if I eat them again, I can just choose them from a list and log them! Easy peasy!
I have exercised every day but Friday so far. Well, and so far, today. I have finished 2 of the 3 days in week 1 of Couch To 5K. I'm hoping to complete Day 3 today. If not, I'll do something....I have 1 more day left in my 1st week. Saturday was fun - I had my niece over for the weekend. I took her to see "Annie," on Friday. We got up kind of early on Saturday. I actually convinced her to try working out with me instead of watching Dora The Explorer. I put in a Turbo Kick DVD and she just about made it through the warm-up. Haha. I finished the hour long workout. She mentioned that she wished I had an easier workout, so, I popped one in. We just did certain segments of it - since you could choose which part of the body you wanted to work. She did some of it...but, I was just surprised that I could pry a 6-year-old away from Dora! Haha. I think I may have to look for some kind of children's workout video for her! I even convinced her to get up and go for 1/2 hour walk with me on Sunday morning before church! I wanted to run, but I didn't think that would work with her. So, we just took a nice walk and chatted. She's so cute! :)
So, I am going to flat-out confess, I ate pizza AND Chinese over the weekend. I probably ate too much of both....well, I know I did. However, I am making positive changes. I'm trying to eat more fruits & veggies. The weekends have always been hard for me. Always. I do so much better through the week when I'm working. I need to seriously go to the store and stock up on healthy foods! I also need to start planning to get out of the house more. Lately I've been in "stay home and do nothing" mode on the weekends. I need to break that. Maybe I'll plan a hike next weekend....something. We'll see. :)
I'll try to post on Wednesday what I lost. I don't think it's going to be massive...but, hopefully I'll see a few pounds gone!
