Live Fit Day 1 (second attempt)

Monday, April 08, 2013

So, the alarm went off at 4:30 am and me and the boyfriend were suppose to get up and get to working out- however it just was not happening. On a Monday I needed more sleep so I decided I would try to squeeze it in after work- even though that is hard I knew I needed the sleep. Well as we got up and got started at 6 (much happier), I remembered that my work (school- I am a teacher), has a gym open from 7:30-8 which is my free time as a teacher. I have never been to the gym so I did not know what they offered but I knew that they had some weights and that they had cardio- so I figured if nothing else I could burn some calories. So I came to work in my gym clothes and brought my work clothes and figured I would do the best I could. well I was able to complete the whole live fit day one workout for chest and triceps!!!! I did not get in any cardio- but I did not have to either- maybe if I have time I can do that after work and tutoring and my son's piano lessons. If not I did get in my required workout so that is a plus! I cooked and packed all of my food for the day (except dinner) we are going to all eat healthy tonight (fish tacos). I made Jamie Eason's protein bars and I made four days work of breakfasts (egg whites mixed with spinach and broccoli wrapped in a clean eating pita or flat bread wrap.) I am going to follow the diet that comes with this as best I can the entire time, and I am focusing on the workouts and including some of my own cardio and yoga this time.
We are also kicking off the biggest loser this week and I am excited for all 16 people that signed up (17 if you include me:) I will be sending everyone an email shortly welcoming them and sending some good information to read. I will also be giving them a daily challenge (think about what you are eating today- is it helping or hurting you?) I am also challenging them to a weekly challenge- record what you eat and do. I am hoping they all had a good weekend.
I did not lose anything this week but I also know that part of that is because I did not find the time to workout and I went out to eat for date night on Friday and over did it with the food :( But this week it going to be different. I took my before pictures but I literally wanted to cry when I saw them so I don't think I will be posting them anytime soon. But someday when the after pictures are worth the before pictures I will do it.
But for today I am proud because I had success- working out and finishing my workout is a step in the right direction. Please continue to send support and motivation my way because I know that this is going just going to be the beginning of a long process but I guess we all have to start somewhere. Keep the spark alive (in you and in me)
