There was nothing special about today, but that is a good thing in my book. I was able to stay on track very easily.
I did my cardio, 20 minutes of Leslie Sansone Walk Away the Pounds w/warm up and cooldown and stretch.
Then I did the 15 minute Abs Workout video that was supposed to be tomorrow's challenge video, but I got the days mixed up, so I'll be doing Day 6's arms video tomorrow hehe. I really hate doing ab workouts. But I really hate my fat, flabby belly even more, so it's got to be done!
I easily stayed at the low end of my calorie range, which is what I aim for. And never felt deprived. I like that =) I also surpassed my water goal with 12 glasses so far and probably another 3 before bed. My bladder seems to be getting bigger lol.
I am currently at 6,000 steps on my pedometer. My goal is 5,000 at this time, which means I have to exercise to get there, but not all that much. As you can see, 20 minutes usually is enough. Next month I hope to raise the bar to 6.000 and eventually back up 7,500 and some day 10,000 =)
Umm yea, that's about it. My husband is sick so I've been spending time taking care of him. He got the nasty cold that I had the entire week after Christmas including New Year's. Poor baby =(
I read my daily Bible verse. I really need to read more than that, but it's better than nothing. I got to spend some time reading my current book as well. Still reading The Black Echo by Michael Connelly. No other hobbies for today besides being on my computer, probably excessively.
Thanks to all of my SparkFriends for your encouragement and positive remarks. It means so much to me to know that there are other facing these same weight loss hurdles and overcoming and sharing their journeys, successes and trials and set backs.
We got this!
Now to go swap the linens on the bed so I can relax and read before calling it a night.
