JMBR, Week 2 Day 4

Thursday, May 10, 2012

Tired today.

Last night's stationary bike workout was tough. My legs were pretty sore and tired this morning. My upper abs are sore from yesterday's ab workout too. I never thought I would say this, but I was looking forward to this morning's workout just to help get rid of the soreness. So odd that I would feel that way. lol

So far I'm still feeling good about my dietary changes. I'm no longer eating past 9 PM and I'm no longer wanting to either. My sugar cravings seem to be gone now. I never thought those would go. When I quit smoking cold turkey in 2005, I exchanged my nicotine addiction for sugar. After 4 years of not smoking, I was stupid and started again. I smoked from April 2009 until December 2010 and had no desire for sugary foods in that time. When I quit again (yay!) I found myself going right back to the junk food. Each time I tried to change my diet I ended up going right back to my bad habits. The only thing that's different now is that I've added daily workouts. Could that be the difference? Is it possible that I may be exchanging my sugar cravings for exercise? It's too soon to tell, but I REALLY hope so! At least I'd be addicted to a healthy habit this time. emoticon

In other good news, I forgot to use my inhaler last night before my bike workout and this morning before my JMBR workout, and it looks like I may not need it before exercising anymore. emoticon We'll see how next week goes when I move on to workouts 3 and 4.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful day!
