Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!

"So once in every year we throng
Upon a day apart,
To praise the Lord with feast and song
In thankfulness of heart."

A Three-week Workout Streak

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

I have so far been able to exercise at lest 10 minutes a day for 3 weeks!

Some changes are happening:
- I have more energy during the day.
- I am handling stress better at work (and the stress level has increased lately).
- I have lost over 8 pounds.
- My blood pressure is coming down.

After the first week, my weight stayed the same for about a week. Then it started dropping again.

All of these affects make me want to keep exercising. I am looking forward to the 10-pound milestone, which should be coming soon!

    emoticonSlow and steady is the best way to lose weight.

It has taken me 5 1/2 months to lose 21lbs. I still have 24lbs to go. So I am guessing another 7-8 months. However, I almost never hungry, I rarely crave anything and I have so much more energy. And I need a lot of energy being a mom of a 5 & 7 year old in her forties.

Good Luck!

    "The victory of success is half won when one gains the habit of setting goals and achieving them. Even the most tedious chore will become endurable as you parade through each day convinced that every task, no matter how menial or boring, brings you closer to fulfilling your dreams." --Og Mandino

Workout 4

Sunday, October 10, 2010

I added one of the items (that I removed after workout 1) back into the workout today. I felt good after the workout - did not feel like I overdid it.

I am a step closer to reaching my goal of completing the the entire workout by Friday!
