Weigh day was yesterday. I am never sure what to expect so I try not to have any expectations prior to weighing in. This week I was happy to see that I went down a pound. One pound doesn't seem like much but at least I am going down and not up!
I am really proud of myself tonight. I pushed myself harder than I ever have when excercising. Usually when it gets hard I give in to my aching muscles and quite. Monday I planned on doing my 30 minutes on the treadmill with 5 minutes walking and 5 minutes jogging. In reality I only did 15 minutes total. I did the first 5 minutes jogging and it was okay. I was feeling very optimistic when I got done with them. However, by the time the second 5 minutes jogging came around I was thinking, "There is no way I am going to finish this 5 minutes, let along do another 5 minutes to finish my 30!" and so I gave in and stopped after 15 minutes as well as taking a short break during my last 5 minutes of jogging.
Tonight I decided I was going to try it again. I made it through the first 5 and decided that I needed to slow down the pace for the second and third 5 minutes. I was really happy when I realized that I am strong enough to make it through the second 5 minutes and decided that I could do it. So, half an hour later, dead calves and all, I am really happy to say that I did it!
Now I just need to get my food figured out. I tend to get stuck in a rut and get sick of eating the same "healthy foods" over and over again. You can only eat chicken so much and Lean Cuisines do get old after awhile. Any suggestions? I could really use some new ideas.
