Perseverance...

Sunday, May 13, 2012

So I really started tracking my calories and fitness two weeks ago. And have not missed a day of exercise. I feel like I am really on track and have finally committed myself to something. It's interesting how eating right and exercising become a habit, or rather a "must-do" each day. You feel guilty when you veer off too much. Not to say that you can't have a cheat day, or splurge, or take a rest from exercising. But for me, right now, staying on track every day is helping me to not get into old habits.

The only thing I am struggling with right now, is that my calves and ankles hurt a lot when I walk or run too much. My husband thinks that I have shortened my calves wearing heels at work, and I can see this being a real possibility. So now that I am exercising every day, as well as walking my dog, I feel it. I don't have pain when I wake up in the morning, or even 10 minutes after I work out, so I know it's just cramps.

I just want to stay determined, and persevere through this. I want to allow my body to get used to exercise, while not pushing myself too hard.

Have a good Monday everyone! (0:

  


A week and a half so far...

Tuesday, May 08, 2012

I joined SparkPeople a week and a half ago and love it! I have tried to stick to eating healthier, and exercise classes, but nothing stuck. I would eat out way too much! My friend from work, (my lunch buddy), mentioned she had to eat better to lower her cholesterol. For some reason, this was the push I needed. So instead of her and I eating out all the time and making poor choices, she could now be my "diet" buddy. And so far, it's worked out great! We motivate each other and keep each other in line.

Also, with joining SparkPeople, and beginning to track my nutrition, wow! It's amazing what a simple sandwich at a restaurant can end up being! U realize where your calories come from for sure!!! And with tracking, I love the fact that you know what you have to work with by suppertime. That keeps me from stopping to grab something on the way home. I just tell myself - you only have 400 calories for supper and 100 for snack. Watch yourself. Just go home and make something healthy!

So I am super motivated, happy, and have lost 3 pounds so far! And I plan to keep on track and keep losing til I reach my goal! (0:
