Harder week, but there is a bright spot!

Friday, January 25, 2013

This week was a little disappointing for me from the perspective of how much I exercised. I had pretty good momentum going Monday but knew that I would have limited exercise on Tuesday due to a busy schedule and not being at work. My gym is close to my job and I usually workout during lunch or after work. I have also been fighting a cough all month and this week it seemed to be worse. Wednesday and Thursday were not great cardio days for me, as I only walked my puppy which while good, isn't the workout I feel I need.

The bright spot occurred for me on Tuesday when I finally watched “Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead” on Netflix. It totally inspired me, because while I understand working out and eating a low calorie diet is the way to being more healthy, it offered another option. I ordered a Breville Juice Fountian and am excitedly waiting for it to arrive. I believe that this is something that will help me reach my weight goal as well as feel better. I have read a ton about "juicing" and think it sounds like an option that will be great since I love fruits and veggies but don't have enough time or patience to wolf down pounds of either every day.

I made sure to bring my workout gear today and have two classes tomorrow morning to make up a little of the slack from this week! Overall, I am doing so much better than I was a month ago and finally feel like I am on the right track!

I will keep you posted with my progress!

    It sounds like you and I are in the same boat as far as time. Once you miss a day or two of good exercise its hard to keep the mind games at bay and not just give up or slow down. Good work on finding ways to make things work for you! emoticon
