New Start...

Monday, January 03, 2011

Well, today was the first day of my new start. Didn't do too well in the nutrition department- ate a slice of pizza in the car while running errands, leftover apple pie at my mom's house, a few Hershey's Kisses. Now- leftover tuna casserole for dinner. At least the tuna casserole is made with Whole Grain egg noodles- Baby steps... On another note, I did go to the grocery store today, and made it out with NO junk food! Just bottled water, skim milk, and pears!

I did do some cardio today, and am planning on doing some more on wii fit plus later....It's the strength I have a hard time with-It's painful!! But- no pain, no gain, right??? Maybe I'll do a little strength later too...

    The "pain" is just referring to the soreness. I need to get into a routine.I have been so bad at sticking to it that when I do get around to it, I overdo it, then give up. Maybe if I just start slow and work my way up to more reps...Don't really know how much to do. Any recommendations?

    I agree with RH that if your in pain something is wrong. The "no pain, no gain" isn't correct. Yes, a little SORE is something we experience and expected, but pain, no.

As far as eating the way you did today, well hey tomorrow is another day. I had cake today, but other than that ate well. It's Ok, I am not going to beat myself up. Normally I allow the calories into my day, but not today. So tomorrow please just restart your day. Do you keep snacks nearby you can quickly grab so this doesn't happen? And quick to grab meals to take with you? On SP There are a lot of suggestions you can get for this.

Wishing you well ! And me also ! LOL

    Oh yeah, and did I mention- no soda today? That's HUGE for me- a diet Pepsi/Coke addict. I'm gonna make some Crystal Light and keep some in the fridge at all times, and maybe pre-fill a water bottle so I can grab it and go on busy evenings! emoticon

    Welcome to SparkPeople! Good for you for taking positive steps.

I'm a little concerned that you said that strength training is painful. A little achiness is ok, but you shouldn't be in pain. Make sure you're not using too much weight, and maybe consider getting help from a trainer (if you can afford to) to get help with form.

Take care.
