Starting to Exercise
Tuesday, January 31, 2012
Yesterday I started my Exercise routine and it felt really good. I am even a little sore today, the good kind of sore. I did the Leslie Sansone Walk Away the Pounds 1 Mile this morning. Yesterday I did the 12 Second Sequence and it was really hard for me. I posted the exercises in my fitness journal and they don't look too bad when you just read them. Not so for me doing them. The push ups were really hard. Then one where you prop on the ball and do backward bendies... I don't remember the name of it. Well it felt really tough for me.
My weight is still up from my Thursday WI, last Thursday I was 196.2 (starting weight 205) and this weekend I slacked. I weighed 198.6 on Sunday morning. This morning I was 197.4 so it is coming back down. Looks like by Thursday I will be lucky if I even maintained. But I am back on track and that is the point. I just want the scale moving in the 'down' direction.
I had a great supper last night and I wanted to share it. Take a look at my public journal if you want. It was baked chicken breast with 1/2 cup of whole wheat spaghetti pasta and 1/2 cup of Bertolli Garlic Alfredo, 1 cup of cauliflower baked with 1 tsp of canola oil and 2/3 cup of mixed vegetables. I used have the alfredo on my pasta and chicken and the other half on my cauliflower. It was really really good. The family ate it too, except my 13 yr old did pick out the green beans from her mixed vegetables (she doesn't like frozen green beans). That is okay, everyone ate the cauliflower and that is great to me. They also added a slice of bread with butter to their meal. Later they all ate light icecream, I could have too, but I was really wanting some popcorn. I had my little bag and was very satisfied with that and a Diet Cola (some generic I bought at ALDI...not as good as Coke Zero, more like Diet Coke). It was a good day yesterday and I am ready for a good day today.
My menu plan for tonight is super easy. Leftover chicken and pasta, so I am just going to do the same meal again. Hope it is great!
