I woke up really looking forward to the day that was ahead of me. It was going to be a Great Girlfriend Day!
A friend of mine had the day off work and had decided she was due for some quality girl time! I agreed that spending the day together doing some girly stuff sounded like a great idea!
We decided on an early movie, then lunch, then a pedi.
I had promised myself that I would get up early enough to get my”chores” done around the house, exercise and shower and be out of the house by 9:00 to get a couple of errands in before the movie.
Typically when I plan to exercise early in the morning, I figure out all sorts of reasons why I just can’t get it done. I convince myself that I will get it done later in the afternoon, or at least in the evening, maybe before dinner, and then well……maybe after dinner, and certainly before I get to bed. I end up doing it too late or not at all. Am I alone here?
I’ve done a really good job of getting my exercise in since writing my schedule a few weeks back. I do NOT always get it done first thing, but I HAVE been getting it done before the afternoon is over, and that feels great!
Yesterday morning, while attempting to procrastinate just a wee bit, I decided to just put my shoes on and get at it! I only had 30 minutes instead of the hour that I have been getting in, (because I did procrastinate just a bit) so I increased the incline and kept the speed between 4.0 mph and 5.0 mph and pumped my arms the entire time I was walking/running! Except for the pebble in my left shoe that was stabbing me in the heel, I felt great when I was done! I think that’s the hardest I have worked on the treadmill in awhile.
I lost weight three weeks in a row, then last week maintained at 161.0. I am really wanting to weigh less than 160 when we go on vacation in three weeks, and I think it’s gonna happen!
Here are yesterday’s eats…..
I have fully brought back dairy into my diet, but I plan to try and eat less of it.
I am not going “Gluten Free”, but now that I realize how many things that it is in, I plan to pay more attention, and eat gluten free as often as possible.
