Feel like I'm on a roll.......
Saturday, May 18, 2013
I've been doing great all week, tracking my food, exercising and taking time to relax as well.
I got up early today - on a Saturday??? - and went to a zumba class. I did the same last Saturday and I remember how great I felt after - energized with the whole day ahead of me to get things accomplished. Quite a switch from sitting in front the computer drinking coffee till noon....my old habit which I'm working to break.
On Wednesday when I got home from work I felt pretty tired. I had gone to zumba on Monday night, went dancing on Tuesday night and got home late so by Wednesday I was tired and my muscles were quite sore. I pushed myself to go to zumba with my daughter. After class I felt great! The soreness was gone and I didn't feel so tired. I slept great that night! Thursday night I took it easy and relaxed and did about the same last night - getting to bed early so I could get up early this a.m. and not use "I'm too tired" as an excuse not to exercise.
Since this morning I accomplished quite a bit but I still have some more things I want to work on today. Wanted to do some yard work but the weather is not cooperating. Besides, I have a swollen thumb. Last week I was pulling weeds without my gloves and got a thorn in my thumb. I couldn't get it out till last night. Now it's swollen and hurting - but I'll live!
Tomorrow is my weigh in, measurement day. I'm trying to just weigh and measure once a week. I'm not sure what the scale will say but I feel like I've toned up - my clothes are feeling looser on me....my pants aren't cutting into my gut like they have been and my stomach muscles feel tighter.
Counting down to my Florida trip - 21 days to go! I am GOING to fit into my warm weather clothes!!!
Off to do some more chores!
