For the last couple of days, I have been helping my friends move from one apartment to the next. I am really sore from moving boxes.
I am being good about watching what I eat. When we stop for food, I drink iced tea, unsweetened. And, I eat half the entrée not the whole thing.
My goals for the summer are to study for a professional exam in the fall and to lose weight. I am taking some time off from work to focus on my studies so that I will do well on my exam. And, I am staying focused on weight loss.
Sometimes, the only way out of the situation is to go through it. That applies to weight-loss too. I am finally done with my big projects. So now it is time to focus on myself. I have cleaned up my room. It's nearly impossible to work out without space to do it.
I have a bunch of new DVDs. And today I am trying Kathy Smith's flex appeal.
This is the last week of spring for us. We expect to see the low 90s by the end of next week.
My current diet plan is:
Number one: exercise for 30 minutes five days a week before breakfast.
Number two: eat at least one serving of vegetables with every meal
Number three: eat within my calorie range of 1200 to 1300 cal per day five days a week
Number four: meditate for at least 15 to 20 minutes every night before bed
So super sad about Collage Video closing. They were how I discovered new and interesting instructors. Dang it. That is where I found Shiva Rea. That is where I learned about Billy Blanks Jr. Gah.
I am not losing weight right now, but I'm not gaining. I have 98 lbs to lose. I was out of town for a week. I learned to just eat healthy prepared entrees from the grocery store. I also used the hotel gym throughout the week. I was so pleased with myself for that.
I am struggling with accepting the fact that my body requires home cooked food most of the time. I basically came out with that to my Dad/boss. He is on board with it. Its stressful to me to eat different than others now. It wasn't always. I don't know why that has come up.
I am struggling with wanting to sleep in instead of exercising in the morning. I just need to do it. Just do it.
