Finished off week 1 of the January Jumpstart Challenge strong! I did my 20 minutes of aerobics, I did the Day 6 Arm Sculpting video today since I had screwed up and did Day 7's video yesterday AND I walked to the grocery, shopped and came back which took 30 minutes and had enough steps for a mile.
I met my water goal, my pedometer step goal and my calorie goal. My calorie goal was a small victory for me in self control. I made lasagna for dinner tonight and as soon as it came out of the oven I cut it up into proper portion sizes... against all my strong desires and wishes to start off with 2 servings, I controlled myself and only took one and doubled up on the spinach instead. I also only had 1 piece of garlic bread. When I was done eating I was completely satisfied and now I have even more lasagna than normal for other meals. Go me!
I did take a small nap today, because I had trouble sleeping through my husband's coughing and sneezing fits. I won't beat myself up over that, clearly I needed it. I read my daily Bible verse and took some time today to relax and read The Black Echo, less than 100 pages until I finish it =) I am 1/75 books read so far this year. I did, of course, spend excessive time on my computer, but I'm doing really well in everything else so I don't feel bad about it.
And now I will go read for awhile, rest more poor abs that are still quite sore from yesterday's workout and then start a pot of chili for tomorrow's annual chili cook-off at church that I signed up for. My first time, I hope they go easy on me ;)
PS... I stepped on the scale this morning and hit a new low, 227.0!!!!!! I don't want to update my Spark tracker until the end of the month though, but that was an exciting thing to see =)
