So I told a fib. I said that I was going to get up @ 4:30 every morning last week and workout. I think it's more like drag my sorry, tired, unwilling ass out of my nice and toasty bed and workout. It didn't happen. Not once. I have a million excuses. It's cold (mind you it's been warmer here in the past week than usual), the first night I tossed and turned worried about work and didn't sleep much, uhmmmm...well maybe not a million. Basically what it boils down to is that I just didn't want it bad enough. I want to want it bad enough, but sleep is much more appealing at 4:30 in the morning.
Tuesday, my first day back to work, I did come home and make dinner and walked a mile on the treadmill (a whopping 20 minutes). Wednesday we had a huge storm and power outage for the night so that was a great excuse to go out to eat and since we had no power I couldn't do a video or walk on the treadmill. Guess walking outside was out of the question. Thursday came and went without exercise, and so did Friday. I knew that I was going to have to wake up early today and make myself exercise.
So I did. I walked 3.5 miles on my treadmill in 1 hour and 8 minutes. I was pretty happy with that. I'll probably do the same tomorrow.
I've got to get a plan together for the exercise though. I like to workout in the morning, it's just over and done with for the day. I just don't see myself doing it after work. I think I've got something figured out but I'm not posting about it until it happens. Wouldn't want to lie to everyone again.
Still eating well - it helps that I had the menu made for the month. I don't have to follow it in any order. As long as we have the ingredients to make the meal I can do what I feel like - it's been working so far.
I did go off the plan a little today (Valentine's Day). We had steak and shrimp for dinner. I only ate half my steak and a few shrimp. I also made a low calorie cupcake (190 if you can call that low calorie) that was pretty tasty. I hope you all had a nice day!
