Lost two pounds this week...woot! And I hit 40 pounds loss, another milestone! Woot! Woot! Just shy of reaching halfway to goal!
That being said, I turn my sights to week two. We are to continue with the water challenge, as well as planning/maintaining a daily routine. I did well last week, except I never got around to doing an exercise video on YouTube. And boy am I feeling it! When I go for long walks (2-3 miles), I suffer from what can only be described as back muscle spasms. Everything I’ve read seems to point out to a weak core. It makes sense bc I carry the majority of my weight in my abdomen. For years, my belly has hung out like a pendulum! I quit trying to suck it in years ago, bc it was just impossible! That stops Now!
This week I will make sure to add an exercise video to my daily routine. I will set my alarm to remind me. My daily routine will look like this:
6am: get up, make coffee, Spark, FB, check emails
7am: feed pups, clean poo
7:30am: go for walk
9am: breakfast, clean kitchen, plan dinner
10am: workout to YouTube video
(Only did this once last week)
12 noon: lunch
1pm: Household chore
5pm: watch evening news, cook dinner
6pm: dinner, clean kitchen
7pm: watch fave shows
Another task we are tracking is Nutrition. We are to track every morsel we eat! For the most part, I do this. I am challenged to see if I can eat within my calorie perimeters every day. But I do have my off days...sometimes I don’t track at all, sometimes I only track a couple meals. So this week, I’ll step up my game, and track it all!
Wish me luck as we have family coming to town tomorrow and Friday! I’ll update my progress next week. Spark on!
