Day 4: Feeling great!

Monday, March 24, 2014

Today is Day 4 of my 7 day challenge. I honestly think this is the longest i've gone without giving in to a drink in a LOONG time. I am easily drinking my 8 glasses of water. I have exercised at least 30 minutes each day.

I must admit that i'm a little sore. The left side of my neck has been stiff since i woke up. I think i may have slept wrong on it. I've tried stretching it to no avail.

I'm about to watch a movie with my kiddos and relax for the evening.

I hope the neck eases and that you had a nice time with the kids.

Day 3: Aerobics

Sunday, March 23, 2014

I was falling asleep while working, so - at the suggestion of my now-13-year-old - i got up and worked out. Did 30 minutes of step-aerobics... at a running pace... and then i did some yoga and sit-ups.

I'm feeling pretty good at Day 3, although, i sense that i want to have a drink tonight. I have to fight that urge.

I weighed myself today at the suggestion of my Wii. I'm not sure why the Wii hates me so that it suggests that every day. I gained a pound since yesterday. Now... i know that i shouldn't weigh every day, but i keep hoping that perhaps something will drop off and i'll see it. Instead, i gained a pound and made myself sad.

However, i'm still moving forward with my plan for 7 Days.

    Ignore WII. Weigh yourself at the same time - every week if you can wait. Anything can cause you to gain a pound or even two - too much water right before, different clothes, humidity... And it sounds like you did exactly the right thing to get energized. Exercise will almost always rev you up!

Day 2: Roller Skating & Birthday Cake

Sunday, March 23, 2014

My oldest child turned 13 yesterday and today was her birthday party. It was at the roller rink. I had so much fun, you guys! I danced on the rink and sang out loud and did the hokey pokey! I even shook my "behind" all about! I just didn't care who though anything about it! :D

So... my soon-to-be-ex was there and he just confuses me. I haven't lost a pound... but the man was all, "Hello, beautiful!" and i'm like... looking around to see who the heck he's talking to. It was me. What the heck, dude?? I still love him. Or... i should say that i love who i thought he was going to be. This has been hard, but now that i'm back on my "happy pills," i'm feeling much better about the whole thing.

Today i skated for probably 30 minutes total during the 3 hours we were there. It was perhaps even longer, but i'd rather estimate on the lower end. Then before bed, i did a 20 minute workout: half light aerobics and half strength training.

Anyway... day 2 down for my Seven Days Challenge. In the past, i would have very easily convinced myself to relax with a drink and play Sims. Instead, i worked out and about to sleep. Ahh... precious sleep!

See you tomorrow!

    Thanks, lady. I appreciate the advice. He's a confusing man anyway... i'll just let him do his thing and i'll do mine. I can't wait to do my workout today.

    Good for you for working out. As for your ex, glad he gave you positives. Don't let it confuse you, though. I remember when my first husband and I were in the throes of separating and he would come calling with flowers and compliments. Guys do separation in a whole, weird way - or so I believe!!

Have a great week!

Seven days

Saturday, March 22, 2014

Seven days. Just one week. I can do anything for only one week, right? And then after that week, if i don't feel that there's a change, i can stop. Right?

Seven days of exercise.
Seven days without alcohol.
Seven days of positive thoughts and praying unceasingly.
Seven days towards my happiness... towards my future.

    7 days is not that long, just take it one day at a time. You can do it.

    You can do it! Just take it one day at a time (although that's a lot easier said than done, I know.) Just keep swimming:)

From yesterday. I hope i get another workout in today. Been eating much healthier, too. Still not losing weight. I really need something to kick-start the weight loss, because otherwise, i feel all this work does nothing.
