So I am 5 weeks in to my new lifestyle. Trying to eat better and exercise. If I am being honest with myself, I KNOW I can do better. I have definitely decreased my calorie intake and stopped eating out of boredom. I do not think I am eating near enough or as often as I should. I know I am not drinking enough water and I have got to improve. I have stuck with my couch to 5k and if I skipped a day, I made it up the next day. 30 minutes of exercise every other day is not enough to yield the results that I want. Today, I have put off running. Today is day 3 of week 5 and I am supposed to run 20 minutes without stopping!! What!?! I am scared!! Day 3 of week 5 kicked my butt and I am not sure I can move up. I am going to try. It just may be tomorrow =)!
I know I should be proud of any weight loss and 8 pounds in a month is good! I will not reach my goal of 30 pounds (it was a little ambitious) I will keep trucking along.
I need to add in more cardio, some strength training, and toning. Leslie is kicking butt and is an inspiration for what I should be doing. I have also been reading Erin's blog and wow!! I hope one day I can experience her results.
