Wow….life and sickness and everything else has gotten in the way of me keeping up with my blog. I’ve still been staying on track with my workouts though. I love going to the Y! I go 4 times a week (with the exception of last week when I had the stomach virus and only made it 3 days).
This morning I did my radio interview with HIS Radio. The devil was seriously trying to keep me from going though. First, I didn’t hear my alarm going off (this time change has really gotten to me), then as I was leaving the house, I had frost covering my back window and I backed right into my husbands car. I definitely did a number on his (and my car) and that really upset me. I rolled my window down so I could see to get out of the driveway and then it wouldn’t go back up, so I drove all the way to the Y with my window down, freezing the entire way. I didn’t let that stop me though. I made it and did my interview (which was really awesome) and then did my strength and cardio workouts. Not today, Satan, not today!
I loved getting to share my story with Rob, Alison, and Jim…as well, as all of the listeners out there. I was nervous at first, but I think the interview went really well and I enjoyed sharing some encouragement this morning.
Oh, I should also mention, I’ve lost 7 lbs. Yay!
So, around Saturday I started feeling a little sniffly…and now I have what I’m pretty sure is a sinus infection. Yuck! Despite feeling miserable all week, I haven’t let that stop me. I went to the gym Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday (skipped Wednesday because by the time I was able to head to the gym, Kids Care was ending). I was so happy because when I weighed in Tuesday, I was down a pound and a half. But when I weighed in yesterday, I had gained it back. I’m really not sure why that is. I’ve been eating extremely healthy since kickoff and I haven’t been going over my allotted calories my trainer told me to help me lose weight. It’s just really frustrating that I’ve been working extra hard and I don’t know what went wrong. Anyway, I’m just going to keep on going…I’ll get there eventually.
Well, I’m a little late in the blogging game. I’ve been keeping up with my own personal blog, but forgot to write here. Anyway, I had a great first week last week. I started off on Tuesday with my Wellness Works appointment to get weighed in and get my other measurements. Then I hit the gym again Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday doing both my weight lifting and cardio. I’ve been doing about 30-35 minutes of cardio each time (I like the elliptical best) and I do my weight lifting, which takes about 30 minutes as well. I also started eating clean. That’s been a huge deal for me, because I really love food, which is pretty much what put me in this situation to begin with. I’ve actually done better than I thought I would; it hasn’t been that hard to say “no” to all of the bad foods. I’ve even come up with some new healthy recipes that I REALLY love now! I’ve made some new friends in my group and it’s been just a really great experience so far. I’m really looking forward to the rest of my journey!
