Today marks week three of my second road trip down fitness lane, and my first blog. The past three weeks consisted of breaking two bad habits; kicking my coffee habit, and eating breakfast daily, and running from the inevitable first day of exercise.
I will say that I completely lucked out with the coffee habit. I happened to have a TERRIBLE cold that knocked me out for about three days, and I may be crazy, but between being bed-ridden, the headache that came with it, and the medications, I think I killed two birds with one stone. I have reserved one mug full for Saturday Mornings.
Now that those two food goals are done, today I tackled the dreaded first day of exercise. Truth be told, I was actually avoiding it. I was in fear knowing just how bad my cardio would be. Funny- it was as bad as I thought it was going to be, but at least the fear is gone.
Today consisted of an absolutely BEAUTIFUL day in Southern California- it was sunny with clouds and a cool wind. Damn, we're lucky with the weather here. if you're here and you didn't spend it outside today, shame on you. :P I took a quick hike that lasted about an hour, round trip, and included many stops. For Heaven's Sake... where did all my energy go?!
TODAY'S ACTIVITIES- LOTS OF PREP WORK for this coming week. I made apple sauce (very tart- very little sugar) with just a sprinkling of walnuts for a little luxury. I made Chile Verde sauce for tomorrow's meals. I made Lentil Soup (vegetarian version). I made Hummus (very little oil in this recipe. I made tuna fish with very little mayo.
My DH went to the grocery store and bought nothing but healthy stuff. Good job, Honey!
I packed my gym bag for tomorrow- not sure yet what I'm going to do yet, but I want to be ready. I also acked my lunch for tomorrow.
So- here's to official Day 1!
