Itís Friday! Oh, how I love Fridays. Also, itís the last time Iíll have to come in to work on Fridays! This is all very exciting.
Whatís not exciting? I might not meet my goal for September 5th. Like I mentioned in my last blog, I had company for two nights so we ended up going out to eat twice. I made semi-healthy choices but my focus was on enjoying myself so I know I ate much more than I should have. Iím hoping it doesnít derail my efforts too much, but it certainly didnít help me get any closer to my goals.
I think once Iím down to working 2 days a week, and going to school full-time, itíll be easier to watch my calories. I know it doesnít make much sense, but an erratic schedule keeps me moving and makes me less susceptible to those dreadful hunger pangs. When Iím sitting at my desk at work, itís so hard to ignore the hunger. We shall see.
I have been doing more ďexercisesĒ at home, so thatís an improvement. I am doing my regular physiotherapy routine, which is basically all leg exercises; but Iíve added a few abdominal exercises as well. Iím doing basic crunches to tone the bigger muscles and other exercises that work out my stabilizers as well. I kind of like adding this to my routine. Even though I canít do cardiovascular exercise just yet, at least Iím doing something! I might try to incorporate some arm exercises soon too! I just need to get a resistance band or some free weights.
Iím just going to keep on truckiní and hope that I make good choices for myself and that Iím able to make it close to my goal.
