Over the past week I sought to get in 60 minutes of cardio every day and to stay within my calorie limits. I think I did pretty well. On on day I got in only 45, and today I got in only 30, but I also did some weight training. I managed to stay within range for calories, all except for one day. I'm going to weigh tomorrow as I said I would, but I'm not expecting much, for some reason. I feel better/different, but I'm not sure that the scale will have moved much. This brings me to the challenges for the upcoming week.
First off is to not get discouraged, no matter what is on the scale. It's been only about 2 weeks that I've really been changing, and only one of really getting exercise. I will not be deterred, regardless.
Second, I will find ways to stick to my new workout schedule. It's going to be cardio, 60 minutes, 6 days a week, weight training Monday/Wednesday/Friday. The challenge this week is that I have no help with childcare. I have been getting up at 5 a.m. every day to get to the gym and back before my boy wakes up. My plan is to do that, even though I can't go to the gym. I'll get up at five, do either power yoga or hooping for my cardio. On Monday/Wednesday/Friday I'll do my weight training during his morning nap. I also have the option of walking with him during the day, if the previous hits a snag for some reason.
I've also just realized (duh!) that having no help with child care is going to make for more stress this week, which can be a big enemy that causes me to over eat. I'm going to just have to be aware of that and find another way to combat it.
Here's to another week in the life of a "loser".
