Days 3 to 5

Friday, October 21, 2011

Well days 3 through 5 were ok but not great! I am really having a hard time with feeling hungry and getting cranky. Not a great thing when I am supposed to teach 3 yr olds all day long. I am going to start running again so that I can expend some calories that way and not have to cut calories quite as much. I think that will help plus I think it will help my overall mood. I want to do a 5K run in December so this will be good to have a goal to work towards. Giving myself some grace and not focusing on the calories so much. Running will help emoticon

First full day of the plan

Monday, October 17, 2011

First full day of the new eating plan. I stayed within my goals and I wasn't even too hungry, yay! I even did my exercises all the way through today from sparkpeople. It feels good to have a better idea of what I am doing and how I am doing it! I am a bit tired but that could just be from being a preschool teacher :) I am feeling confident that I can keep it up!

Day One

Monday, October 17, 2011

So it's day one of a new approach to finding a healthier way of living. I gave up soda about a month ago, I was an avid soda drinker and by that I mean drinking soda as my primary fluid throughout the day. Thinking that this change alone would make a difference only to be disappointed. I have enlisted the help of my husband as my "coach" to tracking calories and deficits. I am going to be adding some more exercise into my schedule pieces at a time. My crazy schedule makes it hard to fit everything in but he is willing to help me out :) I am hoping to eliminate or at least minimize unnecessary snacking and eat healthier in general. So let's see how it goes!
