So, I had an awesome weekend, and I'm having an even better Monday. What more could a person want than time outside, encouraging friends, and a blog! :) Well, I like my husband and dogs too, but you get the idea. Saturday I kayaked for around 2 hours and I swam for about 5! No kidding! I was having so much fun playing with my nieces. I like them so much more now that they are older and I can relate to them, lol. Sunday I did a Tri run through. I'm pretty excited that it is this coming weekend! I'm not 100% sure that I'll be able to run the whole 5K, but I'm going to give it my best shot.
I started tracking my calories/exercise on SparkPeople again, and I really like it. Especially with my new understanding that 2 pounds a week is OKAY! :) SparkPeople makes me feel like it is doable and gives me attainable goals.
Woke up this morning and went to the gym. 10 minutes general weight lifting and 45 minutes on the elliptical. That fulfills my exercise requirement for the day, but I'd like to maybe do a 30 minutes walk tonight. Also have been eating super healthy. I should easily be able to stay between my 1400 - 1750 calorie goal.
See, this is doable, this is sustainable! Ah, feels so good!
Had a great lunch with the biggest loser crew today. Man those women keep me from falling and NOT getting up. I'll admit, I've cheated some this past month. But I never once STOPPED. I got up, I kept going. I'm really excited to start this next challenge and keep losing two pounds a week :) I know that if I do I will be looking super sassy and hot by this fall.
