Feelin Good!Posted: January 16, 2012
I just weighed myself and for once that didn’t make me sad! YAY I’m still about 10 lbs over my “ok im not huge” weight, but I’ve lost 6 lbs in two weeks so that is very exciting to me. I know the number on the scale isn’t as important as the fit of the clothes or how I feel, but I like seeing that number go down. Sue me. (Not you Susan, just the expression)
As I start week 3 of workouts (just got done with my swim) I feel ready to get into some longer stuff. Even though this is the “get back into it” month, I feel like I’m not doing enough if I only do one workout a day. I hope I keep this mindset as long as possible and avoid the dreaded “burnout”
Hey! I made juice today!
I’ve always wanted a juicer and I felt this was a perfect excuse to get one. I’m really good about getting all my fruits and veggies in a day, but sometimes I don’t feel like cutting the fruit or actually eating ( I know, how lazy can a person be?) So I got this guy mainly for breakfast and pre/post workout nutrients. I’ve eaten breakfast every morning since I’ve started this quest, but some days I’m not hungry or nothing sounds good so I’m hoping fresh juice will help on those mornings. My first juice was orange, pear, carrot and sweet potato and I counted that as my lunch. It was actually really good! Mainly pear flavored with some potato texture. I doubt I’ll juice every day, but its a fun way to mix it up.
Thats all I really have. Its still snowy and freezing here so no outdoor workouts for me. I’m still working on my swim technique, soon will have to bust out the trainer for ‘ol blue (my road bike. i HATE the trainer) and running is and will always be running.
Hope everyone had a great weekend (everyone assuming more than just Sue and Alisa read this)
