Doing okay!

Sunday, March 04, 2012

So I haven't posted in a while, but that is okay. Things are good. We left the gym because it was too far and we weren't going, but we joined one that is only eight minutes away.

We went for the first time today and it was actually great! I did 20 minutes on an elliptical like machine. I actually like it more than the elliptical because there is more free motion which is easier on my hip! Then I did 10 minutes on the rowing machine. I was nervous because I haven't done any arm cardio in several months, but I could do it! I went slow, but I could make ten minutes!

We have been cooking a lot more lately, which not only is healthier at home, but it gives me healthy leftovers for lunch at work. I only go out once every two weeks unless a friend makes plans for lunch, so that is great.

I work two minutes from a Chipotle AND a Moe's and I haven't been all year! That is a big deal because I love my burritos. They are my favorite! I was going once a month, but I am going to try for once every three months. So i will go one time this month. I have learned that completely depriving myself makes me want it more.

I weighed myself today and I am at 166. I want to be down to 150 by mid-June. I think i can do it!

I am trying to get support from my husband and wish I had more friends that were trying to do the same thing!

    Thanks! After we left the last gym, I wanted to try to see how I did on my own. I actually did pretty well - no real exercise but I still lost 3 pounds just by changing my diet. One pound a month doesn't seem like much...but I am happy!

    Thanks for your support Amanda!

    You can get there Caitie! I'm glad to hear that even though you haven't been here often, you're still going. :)
