Three days into the optimum lose weight and get into a healthier lifestyle plan has come. For a few months now I have been trying to lose weight by exercise and eating healthy however my last pounds are very stubborn. Last Friday I decided that they are not going to win this time, I am taking a very active approach to beat these little pounds and get back into the shape I was while in college. Yes, I lost weight in college and was in my perfect size/health: it is my goal once again! This weekend, the time that we usually take to relax I found myself having a good time making more space in our lifestyle to get healthier with more exercise. It is still winter here so getting out to the gym is the hardest thing right now for us. We were able to get through the snow though and get to the gym. We were proud of ourselves.
I found that I am getting better at running once again. I started with a 16min/mile and now am down to 12min/mile. Unfortunately I had to take a .10/mile walk in between running but that is much better than when I started a few weeks ago on the treadmill again. I am so proud of myself for earning this small accomplishment.
We eat healthy already (more than most extremely fit people), now we just have to exercise more and eat less healthy snacks. Yes, healthy snacks are just as bad as unhealthy ones. It adds calories and can slow one down. I am working on the "drink a cup" instead of "eat a calorie" plan.
