Day 3.

Sunday, March 10, 2013

I'm on day 3 of my mystery plan. Exercise is going slowly; I still am having a hard time rekindling my motivation. However, we went for a family walk yesterday! It was so encouraging to be with my family doing something physical. We went far, far slower than I wanted to go (averaged about 2.2 mph). I prefer to hit 3-3.5 most of the time. Anyway, it was well worth it with the family!

I'm eating a lot better. Though I'm not following the plan perfectly (we're between paychecks, and a trip to the grocery store is out) I'm following the swaps carefully, and making some yummy changes. I've eaten more veggies than I have in a long time. :)

It feels good to have a plan; I think that may have been what I've been missing. I know the routine, I know what to do, but planning to do it is a whole different animal, you know? By thinking ahead (and being limited to what's in the pantry) I'm having to make smart swaps and careful choices based on what I have.

    It's awesome you were able to get out for a walk with your family! Hopefully you'll be able to do that more often, for the sake of family relationships moreso than for exercise. And good to know your mystery plan seems to be helping.
