Thursday: 20 min elliptical
Friday: 20 minutes jumping jacks, kicks, running in place ect... while watching biggest loser on nbc.com
Sunday: Inlaws came in, used that as an excuse and never worked out. :-(
Monday: 20 minutes moderate elliptical - Used day light savings as a good oportunity to wake up at 4:30am and workout before having to wake the kids up, make breakfast and get everyone ready to go.
Tuesday: 30 minutes moderate/high elliptical - Election day so no school for kids. I did not have to get up and I had a headache. I was planning on getting up and eating a little something, taking some head ache meds and going back to sleep till the kids woke up. I got up and ate and took medicine and then told myself,
"if you go back to sleep you need to decide right now when exactly you will workout, where you will fit it in"
I thought about it and could not come up with a good time, so I said eff it and just put on my workout clothes and did the 30 minute hill program while watching the news. After I was done my head ache was gone and I felt pretty good!
Now its over with and I dont have to worry about getting it in later or feel bad when I end up blowing it off.
I have come to the conclusion that even though it sucks so bad to get up earlier than I already to, its the most convienent time to get it done and I am more likely to get it done if I do it early when I first wake up. Thats my goal from now on. I am going to try to get a streak going and see how long I can keep it going.
I have done perfect with my eating the last two days, I think mostly in part to the fact that I have planned out the day before exactly what I am going to eat and how much that is going to be for the next day. I have also been cooking smaller meals, I have gotten into the habit over the past year of cooking larger meals and instead of having leftovers we end up eating all the extra. I have been struggling because of that and hubby has actually gained about 20 or 30 pounds! Not good. Before I only cooked enough for one portion a peice, which is what I am going to start doing again, I am hoping that hubby is going to get alot of bennifit out of this as well.
Right now I am at the top of my weight range. If I gain like 4 pounds I will be considered overweight again according to the BMI chart, so I would really like to lose around 10 pounds so I can be in the middle of my weight range. I think I am going to start being a little more focused on that instead of just maintaining. :-)
