Getting Back on Track!
Monday, January 09, 2012
Okay, so I didn't do so well through the Holidays. Not beating myself up over it. I'm getting back on track. I did go to the gym at least once a week during the holidays but my eating, ugh! Didn't do so well. I only lost 3 pounds from Thanksgiving until today. Better than gaining or nothing at all.
Went to Sam's over the weekend and bought salad and 5 lbs of ground turkey. Now I have to come up with some different recipes for using this turkey! Need to check sparkrecipes. Will do that next.
Instead of going of just going to gym with my daughter (who is brutal by the way), I joined myself so I can go anytime I want to. My goal is at LEAST 3 times a week but I'm going to try for 4 times a week. That is not counting what I do at home.
I meet with a trainer at the gym last week. He helped me set up a schedule. There is always a trainer on site so I can get help anytime. That will help a lot the next time I hit a plateau.
I've gotten into the habit of getting up every morning and getting on my elliptical for at least 5 minutes. Five minutes is not much it is a start and we are talking about 5 a.m.!!!
Also, my daughter got me an aerobic step for Christmas. Yes, I had asked for it. When I'm watching tv, I get up during the commercials and step. I do this throughout the commercial. I do different steps so to work out more muscle. I'm also using my arms. Again, it is not much but it is a STEP in the right direction... LOL
My mind set is right, now to get my mouth and stomach right! They are still craving bad bad things. I also need to get someone to work out with. Who will keep me on track. I'm going to have to think about that one.
I've also got to start tracking my food again on here. Will do that starting today.
