So, I'm checking in with my healthy lifestyle change progress. And excuse that awkward sentence. It will get better from here, I promise!Last week I lost around 12 pounds. I know that is a crazy lot for one week. I think it was the combination of the cleanse and working out every single day. My body was probably in shock. Lots of veggies! What is this? I imagine that's what my body was saying. And I'm really enjoying exercising. I try to change and hop on my exercise bike as soon as I get home from work that way I don't have an excuse.
Also, I'm adding a morning workout this week. This morning I got up and rode my exercise bike for about 20 minutes. I thought it was going to suck because a) I got up at 5am and I hate mornings and b) because I didn't want to turn on the TV since it was so early and wake up my hubby and my crazy dog. But I grabbed the ipad, caught up on Facebook, Pinterest, and some blogs. It went by crazy fast. And then I did my little morning workout circuit. Man, my legs were burning. The plan is to hit the treadmill for a couple miles of walking after work and then pop in Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred when I get home.
I know this sounds maybe like a lot of working out. I'm trying to make big changes though. And I know the time I eat the worst is right after work. So my thought is that if I am invested in working out, I won't want to undo my hard work by eating junk food. So far it's working super well.
When I logged into My Fitness Pal earlier, it read that my age was 30. That was the first time I had actually seen the 30. Oh boy. It's good so far. More on that later this week. How was your weekend? I hope you guys are doing some amazing house projects because I am not. This week it's going to be cleaning to get ready for the big 30th birthday bash this weekend.
