10Day Challenge- Day 3

Wednesday, July 17, 2013

My husband has joined me on my 10 day challenge. Last night, we walk/ran for 64 minutes- and he just kept pushing me. At the time, I got annoyed- it was hot and I had aheadache from not eating til 3 for my physical appt and bloodwork...but I went along. Standing at the scale this morning, I wanted to cry in happiness. I am at a new low weight where I have not been for a very long time. I know my weight will cycle and it will bounce back up- it always does every week- but I am happy to have it the low number on my official weigh in day so I could "count" it- it is the motivation I need to keep pushing!

For the first time in a long time, my husband and I are working together and really encouraging each other on getting healthier. ( I think his family stresses him out, too!) Usually, we get competitive and then I just give up. He will push me too hard and then I just quit. He is so much more disciplined than I am, and his body responds so much quicker than mine does- I am a turtle to the max!! We are great partners in most of the other areas of life- and I am enjoying exercising and dieting with him because it gives us something- apart from the kids and the house- to work on together!

Today is Day 3 and I will recap my progress each day!

Goals for day 3-
- Atkins Induction
-30 minutes of cardio
-50 squats
-50 lunges
-Tracy Anderson Beginner Arm Workout

Weight: (for my use)
7/15 Day 1- 161.2
7/16 Day 2- 160.0
7/17 Day 3- 157.8 in small ketosis

    It will help to have a partner in fitness. I love that arm workout, going to do it now!

    Maybe you can let him know that in this area in particular you want him to be your coach and your cheerleader, not your rival.
