Getting back on track!
Monday, February 18, 2013
so I posted a blog not too long ago announcing that I'm back, again lol. So I haven't done too much work since then to really get going again. Today, Family Day here in Ontario ^_^ I used my day off to make some plans. I purchased a new game for my Xbox. Your Shape, a game that uses the kinect sensor for anyone who is not familiar with it. I have a gym membership but I find it too intimidating to go to the gym at my current weight (340 lbs) and either work out alone or do a class, and unfortunately I don't have someone to go with me. I'm keeping the gym membership for now and hope to be confident enough to go soon ^_^ for now though, I'll make an effort to work out at home.
I always use my cell phone to keep track of appointments and work and stuff. I put my exercise time in there 3 days a week for 30 mins for now. I'll work up to 5 days a week and then maybe increase the time as well but we'll see how things go lol. The point is that I entered it in as part of my schedule with a reminder so that it's not just something I plan to do those days and if it doesn't fit in then oh well lol. It's part of my schedule and it's something that needs to be done.
I also recently purchased some protein powder. I'm horrible for eating breakfast out. I find it difficult to get up in the morning and make something to eat. So I'm going to make fruit smoothies with a protein powder, I know protein is very important, so that I can have my breakfast on the way to work but not get something from a drive-thru. This will also help me get my fruit and veggie servings which I'm horrible at getting lol.
I will also be trying to pack my lunch most days of the week, again I eat out far too often lol. Right now it doesn't matter if my lunch is healthy or not, I'm just trying to get in to the habit of taking it. After a few weeks and it's more of a habit then I'll work on the content of my lunches. Dinners I'll just keep eating whatever for now, again that's going to be something I work on later. I'm trying to do this slowly step by step so it becomes a lifetime habit to do these things.
So right now, I'm working on exercising 3x a week at home for 30 mins, having fruit smoothies for breakfast and taking lunch to work instead of eating out. That's it for now. I figure in 3-4 weeks, then I'll see how I'm doing and work on new goals ^_^
Each week I'll try to blog about how I did in meeting those goals.
so for today ^_^ I did very well, I worked out, as I set mon, wed and fri for my workout days, and, though I have today off work for a stat holiday, I did have my first fruit smoothie for breakfast today. and of course as everything is closed for the holiday, I have no choice but to eat home lol.
