3/25 - So far, so good!!
Sunday, March 25, 2012
So over the last month since my reboot I have slowly gotten back into the swing of things. It annoys me that I can go for months being good and on my plan and then fall off for months but it is something I am learning to deal with. Over the past two years I have taken note of myself throughout the different months and have discovered that I don't deal well with being on plan during the winter months, and I also struggle during the months of July and August when the summer is blazing. This is mainly because I enjoy working out outside and it is hard to do so during winter and the middle of summer. I get discouraged and bored working out inside all the time and tend to just not even try anymore. I wish I didn't do that! Gah. Fortunately, spring came early this year and I should have a pool this summer so working out in that will be a huge plus for me. Wooo.
I've discovered a love for greek yogurt. I get the Fage 2% because I don't like the 0% fat stuff, and I add some strawberries or a teaspoon of honey. Yuuuum! I was at the store today looking at granola to add on it but I ended up buying the golden milled flax seed instead. It is something I've wanted to try for a while now because of the benefits so it will be a nice addition to my yogurt or protein shake. Low carb, too! Wooooo!
All week I have been walking the trails around the HS track because there are steps, slopes, and steep hills. It is more of a workout then going around a flat surface over and over. I really enjoy it and today I actually ran up the steepest hill. I don't normally run in public so I felt awesome that I did and didn't care if anyone saw me, or if they did see me, I didn't care what they thought. I also got a running start and jumped over a huge puddle that was blocking part of the sidewalk after all the rain we've had. I felt like a lil kid again! lol. I went a bit further on my walk today and ended up at the park with a pond. It was nice stopping to see all the ducks. Was very peaceful. I am going to bring some bread with me next time so I can feed them. =)
I have lost 4 1/2 pounds in a week and now am back down into the 240s. I am sooo happy about this. 250 is a number I am no longer allowed to see again on the scale. -- Adios! You're never creeping back up on me again, you hear that 250? --
Haha, alright.. I think I am doing blabbing. Tonight I am going to try to make kale chips. I hear they are really awesome and I look forward to them. Hope everyone has a great week!!!
