Week 3 should be titled the good, bad and the ugly. Let’s start with the ugly. I messed up and had a cheeseburger from Burger King plus and Icee. I was trying to be so good. I feel so ashamed, so low, the tragedy of it all(Hell, it did taste good). Well, I fell off the wagon, bumped my head , but I am OK(holding an ice bag to her head). Now for the bad. I missed a day of walking. I just did not feel like going. Simple. I did start back the next day. Back on the horse. Now for the good. Drum roll please.
Here is my daily routine.
Start with the day at 6:00. Put the coffee on and plug-in my phone. Dress in my one killer workout clothes, check the weather and take my vitamins for the day. It is best for me to take them with food. I will usually have some oatmeal or toast with fruit for breakfast. I am out the door around 6:50. Arriving at the mall around 7:05, I turn my pedometer on my phone and start my walking for the day.
With a smile on face, I can say I am doing a little over a mile now. I can’t speak for my legs, since they are a little upset with me. They feel like they are doing all the work. I promised them I will involve the rest of my body to help with the load. Starting Monday, I will be using arm weights. They are only 2 lbs each, but this will help me tighten my arms and extend my workout. I showed them to my legs. They seem to like the idea. At least we back on speaking terms. They are so stubborn.
I have elected to weigh myself at least once a month. If the numbers don’t add up, it can swing either way. Putting added pressure on yourself, sets you up for failure. My goal is to become the best I can be. Losing the weight is a bonus. Striving for a healthier lifestyle is my main focus.
Now, I have invested in a blender to make smoothies. I have been doing my research and found that I can add vegetables and fruit to get a great tasting smoothies(my paycheck has to catch up for the purchase of a juicer). I have not used it yet, but I am very excited. I am hoping to use the smoothies to replace one meal, probably lunch. I will try for twice a week and work my way to 5 days a week. If any one is making their own, please send me your favorite recipes. I would love to try some.
Oh, I forgot. I purchased some flax-seed powder to add to my baking, food and smoothies. Ah, health, I can taste it now. Go big or stay at home.
