Day 1 of 40

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

I figure since it's the beginning of Lenten season, now's the best time for me to kick it in. Granted, I'm not Catholic, but I might as well get on the bandwagon and focus on what's important during this 40-day stretch.

That, and I've been celebrating Fat Tuesday for like, 10 years straight. I really celebrated in style yesterday, eating all I could that was as bad for me as possible. Ick.

Me, Day 1

So, day 1. Today the plan is - (MET, as posted 10:26 pm)
*Track all food intake and keep the calories within my range of 1200 - 1500. (DONE)
*Drink at least 64 ounces of water. (DONE)
*Do at LEAST the 15-minute workout video from Dr. Oz's Sean T visit - I've had this downloaded for some time now from YouTube. It's like a tiny little touch of the Insanity workout from what I understand, and it has kicked my behind in the past. (DONE)
*Do AT MOST day one of Jillian's 30-day Shred workout as found on YouTube. Thanks to the "Sole Sparkers" team for mentioning it's on YouTube, as I have to pick up the video from the library and just haven't made it there yet. (PICKED IT UP TONIGHT!)

That's all. I weighed myself this morning (eek) but will continue to do so on Fridays per my original plan.

Perhaps I should take and post a picture every 10 days, too? We'll see if my daughter is available to take the picture when she gets home from school.

Thanks for reading, and thank you for your continued support!

Peace Out,

    So glad you are back and ready to rock and roll. I'm not catholic either but I'm using the 40 days of lent to get myself outside and walking no matter what the weather. Hoping it becomes a habit after that!
