great day

Thursday, May 08, 2014

I was so proud of myself for not giving up on the treadmill yesterday. After just 24 minutes I was ready to give up, I was bored and my ankle was hurting. I told myself, you got this, and I did another 24 more minutes, making it 2 miles. I would have gone for a few miles on the bike, but I had to go to work. Needless to say my feet were hurting at work, I got blisters now on the bottom of my feet. I need to get insoles for my shoes, cheaper than buying new shoes, plus there is nothing wrong with the pair I got, my Nike's have always lasted a long time. I plan on going to the gym today and lifting weights, if it rains like it looks like, I will walk on the treadmill also, got to get my daily walking in. Next week I am going to have to go to the gym during lunch, since I have to work 3-8, I will not feel like going to the gym after work, never do. I am so mad at myself though, I left my water at home, I usually drink 64 ounces when I am at school, but no cant do that today, meaning I will be dehydrated while I work out. I am planning what I eat in advance and I am not backing down on what I have chosen. I did realize that I dont like the kale I bought at farmers market, it tasted bitter and was prickly, so I will have just a spinach salad for supper. We will be doing a summer biggest loser competition at work, I won the last one, but this time I will win again but by losing a lot more than 5 lbs, I plan on making it 20 or more. I am thinking about juicing all of next week, there is a place here in Jackson that sells juice and i Was told it is cheaper to buy from them than make your own, works for me. Considering my dad doesn't remember where he put my juicer, which is just dandy.

    I've always found if I can tell myself 5 more minutes...5 more minutes, I can usually 5 more minute myself into an extra 30 minutes or so. Keep up the great work!

    Maybe a new pair of workout shoes should be your reward for meeting a weight loss goal. Kale makes great chips, I'm not a fan of it raw but baked up it makes a great treat.

    Well done on pushing yourself!
