Yea it's a week.

Saturday, February 02, 2013

Well this has certainly been an interesting week.

First of all, portion control is going pretty well considering how we used to eat around here. We have completely erased pizza from our diet and only eat homemade, whole grain veggie pizza. We only eat say, only one chicken breast each, and one potatoe...and sometimes no potatoes at all! I'm loving it.

In terms of fitness...yesterday I started a lighter, more realistic workout routine. No more jumping into a routine full speed and then dropping it like a brick. I only cheat myself that way. It's time to inch myself into regular workouts. I have such a majorly busy schedule, that I needed to set a more realistic fitness goal. I decided that just little things like lifting my dumbbells or doing squats in my spare time is easier at the moment for me and so far ive done well with it. Tip? Muscle burns fat. Gain muscle, lose fat.

I had my first weigh in and discovered that I lost fifteen pounds! Yay. That's wonderful...but I still can't wait to get out of the twenties. I want to been in the teens. When I see 210 I'm going to be ecstatic! I'll kiss the scale, the fridge, my weights...everything! Lol. Pathetic eh?

    I think I'll have to try that out! I just have to get myself up and moving each day. We can do this!

    I cannot exercise in the mornings because like you, I keep hitting the snooze. I don't have time during the day....so I usually exercise about one hour before bed for ten to fifteen minutes.

    Well I just stand up and do a few stretches. You know...sides, legs, arms...and then I put in some music with a beat. I feel really relaxed after my stretches, and the music makes me want to dance...so I slowly pick up my weights, do a few of those...and before long I'm doing my workout. When im exercising I don't pressure myself...I just go until I feel done. The next night I go a little longer, and so forth. It's working great!

    Glad to hear your good news! I, too, was trying to jump into an hour workout routine. I kept failing at getting in an hour and then feeling bad about it and then not getting any exercise at all later in the week. School is definitely taking up all of my time, but I do have little times in between where i can spare 15 minutes or so to workout and that's my goal this week: to get some exercise every day even if it's only 15 minutes.

    When do you try to workout? Morning, evening, or night? I tried last week to get up in the morning to workout, but I was so tired and kept hitting the snooze button. How do you get up and moving for exercise whenever you have the time to do so?
