So I didn't blog at the beginning of week 2 but I did start my small goals. I am on week 1 of the Couch 25k or C25k from here on out. I did run yesterday on the elliptical and made it through! I should be able to start running outside soon because it is light longer. My son will LOVE that. This week I am also adding 2 fruits/veggies to each meal and 1 to snack. So far so good! I feel so much more full and satisfied and feel less like snacking! Wow!!!! That is huge for me. I also did not have ANY sugar other than fruit yesterday. Today I had a small piece of dark chocolate but it was 2 squares of a large bar. I am liking the way that I feel having veggies and fruits more. I also tried to have a good balance of fruits and veggies. When I say this I mea that I had fruit with breakfast, veggies at lunch (I went out but carefully chose to have a salad so that I knew I got 2 servings of veggies) and veggies with dinner. I also had fruit as a snack. That left me with 3 servings of fruit and 4 servings of veggies. WOW! I feel like I am doing great.
Today and tomorrow are my rough days for working out because my husband is off but he is amazing, supportive and understanding of me wanting to workout. I also started reading a book called Made to Crave by Lysa TerKeurst. The book is faith based and is supposed to discuss turning to God instead of food when emotions strike. That is EXACTLY what I need right now. I will probably be posting on this in the future as well. I am also jumping on board with fellow sparkers and doing streaks for working out and tracking food.
Summary of Week 2's plan:
-Continue tracking food daily (I love this now!)
-Eat 2 fruits/veggies at each meal and 1 at snack (4 small meals a day)
-Workout 6-7 days for at least 10 minutes MWF is C25K and TTHSSU is yoga/pilates/stretching
-Reward this week: $1/workout and a new travel "coffee" mug (I don't really drink coffee so it will be for tea).
How are you all doing this week? What are your goals for the week?
