Okay, so I've been trying to get into the habit of eating a healthy breakfast under 400 calories every morning and getting at least a mile in with the Walk at Home program six days a week. I've managed to keep the breakfast thing up every day since I started, but I missed my mile yesterday and I might miss another mile on Saturday because I'll be visiting family. If I manage to get another mile in tomorrow and do something on Saturday to make up for the structured exercise that I'm going to miss, then I'm going to try and do two miles every other day starting next week.
Keeping motivated is a little bit harder this time around because I just moved recently and I'm still in the process of unpacking and finding a place for everything, not to mention that I need to make sure that everything's set up by the end of the month because we're going to have a roommate move in. The biggest problem is that I'm doing almost all of the unpacking by myself while watching my two year old because my husband works everyday and most of his shifts are til closing time.
However, I'm doing better now than I have been before, and I think a lot of that has to do with the major change of moving to a new state. A change of scenery has done me pretty well so far and I'm hoping to take up jogging this month through til it starts snowing. Also hoping to unpack my weights soon so that I can add strength training into the mix.
