So if you have been following my blog(since last week), I've decided to post about my "get fit journey" on Fridays.
First, I would like to say my eating habits are not that bad. I mostly eat healthy, I just need to kick the sweet habit and/or limit it.
The weekend wasn't that good, well Saturday wasn't. The kids and I made cookie pops and I ate 3 and then we had pizza, bread sticks, and wings for dinner. I just didn't feel like cooking. I did sometimes sneak in two or three jolly rancher chews during the week, as well. I really wanted a Reese peanut butter cup, though. I called my husband for approval. ( I didn't want to take the blame.) He reluctantly approved but, because he did, I didn't get one. I got oatmeal cookies instead.
Sunday through the rest of the week, I did pretty good. Each meal consisted/varied of some of the listed foods.
Breakfast - cereal/milk and fruit, scrambled eggs/fruit, - I don't drink much milk unless I'm eating cereal
Snack - fruit/peanut butter sandwich/cucumbers/yogurt
Lunch - salad- spinach/cheese/lean turkey or chicken with dressing or grilled chicken wraps with spinach
Snack - fruit/peanut butter cookies or sandwich/oatmeal cookies
Dinner - Salad/grilled chicken wrap/chicken strips/fruit
Working It Out
Friday I attempted to do a pinterest workout that I knew would kill me.
Right about that no nonsense! I didn't make it. I got through one round minus the mountain climbers and that was it. My husband sat on the sofa coaching me while eating a bag of Lays. This was almost grounds for divorce.
Saturday - Black eye peas for Wii - 35 minutes
Sunday - 3 miles run/walk - I can almost run a whole mile without stopping. I have to rest my legs then restart. I think Jesus got tired of me calling on him today.
Sunday - 2 miles run/walk
Monday - 50 jumping jacks, 5lb weights - 10bicep, 10tricep curls/ 10overhead something- looks like muscle man
Tuesday - rest day - I attempted to walk through the mall and my legs felt like rubber. I was exhausted.
Wednesday - Went to the state park (a lot of walking) - not an actual work out but being active - I realized how out of shape I was running after a toddler, whose running after big brother and sister on playground. I'm usually active though, just not in shape. There's a difference.
Thursday - Did absolutely nothing - I'll make this up.
Today - headed out to get my miles. I'm planning on two and yes I'm really going. If I would have done it first, I probably would have never written this post.
Wish me luck! Thanks for reading!
