Started the morning of right with my lovely Lavash Bread (made a Turkey sandwich). Gosh I’m down to the last sheet. I ended up cutting the bread into 1/3 instead of 1/2–still very filling. Maybe I’ll cut the servings into 3’s in the future that way I’ll get 12 servings instead of 8.
I’m going to try to walk on my lunch break today and plan to get on the Elliptical tonight. I’ll update w/exercise later today.
UPDATE: I just spent 2 min on the Elliptical. LOL, I know you pros out there are laughing your butts off that I can only do 2 min but boy that thing is hard! My legs and arms are sore already and my heartrate was up to 145. I’m just going to keep doing these short intervals until I get in my 15 min. Unfortunately I didn’t get to walk today–I had to go to Walmart on my lunch break instead. But that’s OK. I’m eating good for today and plan on finishing up on the Elliptial tonight.
I’m still keeping that 21 day promise to myself of eating under 1800 calories, exercising at least 15 min/5 days a week, and logging in my journal daily and visiting 3FC’s each day.
I haven’t really gotten on the scale yet. My dear friend Tom came for a visit so this bloated girl doesn’t want to get near the scales at least for a few days. LOL, I could really tell I was bloated this time around because my pants barely fit around my belly. Oh well, I’m hoping next time Tom comes for a visit that those pants are loose and I won’t have that problem!
2nd UPDATE: Did 4 more minutes on the Elliptical-no not all at once! Had to do it in two session–total so far 6 min!!!!
DH did 1 min before he went to work and stated “Wow my legs hurt!” We both agree, We’re really out of shape!!! Ha ha ha. Oh well, hopefully we’ll have dropped some pounds for spring/summer so we can enjoy ourselves and so some fun things this year. We’ve never taken a vacation and I daydream about doing so many things: jet skiing, swimming, going to a park. Of course I get upset when I think about my weight. I don’t even care how others think I look it’s how I FEEL about myself. We all know what it’s like to go to a park and be terrified that we won’t fit in the seat! My son is 5 yrs old and I don’t want him to think I can’t do things with him because of my weight. I’m doing this for me, but I dream about how it’ll benefit my family too that they’ll have an ACTIVE wife and mother and not someone who just sits on the couch all day.
3RD UPDATE just did 3 more minutes! 9 min total!!!
4TH UPDATE wow I could only do 1 min that time so I’m now up to 10.
5TH UPDATE I did another 2 min. Now up to 12. Gosh I really don’t think I can manage more than 2 min at a time-at least for now. It’s all about keeping it up and not giving up.
6TH UPDATE oh lord 2 more minutes up to 14! I was going to push for that last min but my legs were getting all shaky.
7TH UPDATE well I finally got my 15 min in!
