I've been hitting the gym about twice a week! Goal of three times, but between work/seasonal asthma/sick dogs I've had a hard time reaching that goal. But, when I do go, I've been doing 30 mins of intense cardio (for me hahaha) and 30 minutes of weight training.
I've also really been starting to watch what I'm eating and have been trying ti make nutritional, low calorie choices. I've cut out all fast food, chips, or soft drinks. No more snacking, unless it is veggies or a portioned amount of something. Trying to stick with lean meats, soups, and lots of veggies for meals. Switched to a low calorie bread. Greek Yogart is my new best friend for a low cal, protien packed addition for lunch or a snack! (And it tastes delicious so my sweet tooth is satisfied.)
I've lost 4.5 pounds!!!
My normal weight was around 148. Got up to 150 before I started my new "diet". My healthy weight is around 135. I'm down to 145.3 pounds as of two days ago! Whoot whoot! So proud of myself, and I am already starting to make my food choices a habit, not a burden, so I really hope once I loose the weight this will be something I can stick to, even afyer Michael gets back! I don't feel like I'm "dieting" and I do have my "fat days" where I eat pizza, drunk rum and cokes or beer, and just chill, but I'm still moving the right direction.
So so pleased with myself, which is just giving me a boost forward to keep on going!
