8 Weeks Complete!

Tuesday, May 28, 2013

today marks 8 full weeks of eating better and exercising!!! and i still feel like i'm going strong, woohoo!!

today also marks the halfway point in stage 1 of NRFL4W.. 8 workouts done, 8 to go, then i have 1 week off before starting stage 2. i already feel like i'm making huge strength improvements, and i'm at the point where i'm really enjoying strength training! it used to be the workout that i would most likely skip, but i am sticking to my schedule and lifting HEAVY!

yesterday, i biked 11K... i planned 10K, but i went faster than last time, so i had time leftover, and decided to do just a little bit more before heading back home. i felt like i could have gone even farther, but i had to be back home in time to babysit my friend's children. it really felt great!! still working up to biking 15K. and then i walked 5K yesterday afternoon. it was a gorgeous sunny day, not too hot, and everything was great.. except for a blister i got on the side of my foot... ouch.

had a healthy meal last night... red lentil Dahl, brown rice, cauliflower and fiddle heads. yum. leftovers for lunch today. picked up some cherries and strawberries for snacking, also made a new batch of hummus. planning to chop a bunch of veggies for dipping today.. hopefully enough to last the whole week, and then i'll have no excuses there either ;P

this weekend, we are travelling. i get to meet my newest nephew for the first time! but it also means car trip food, some eating out, a family bbq, probably not alot of exercise. i need to pack healthy things!

feeling pretty happy today!!!!

    Regardless of when you eat it (before or after exercise), breakfast helps speed up your metabolism and can aid in weight loss. Enjoying foods high in protein, complex carbs and healthy fats will help you avoid the temptation of the vending machine before lunch.
