Rollercoaster... has its highs and lows. The rush of OMG OMG; and the feeling of: Am I crazy doing this? That's how this whole "Getting Fit" phase is coming along!
This attempt is for me to choose a healthier lifestyle, make better choices and at the same time, continue to be me. Since, knowing me, if I do anything drastic, I will not be able to sustain it. Yes, losing the extra pounds is definitely a motivation!
This week went off better. Sadly, I could hit the gym only one day. BUT, I walked from office to home (Just over a mile and a half) on the remaining days. Mind you, I wear my sneakers and it's a brisk walk. The Chicago tease of spring is not helping, but you got to do what you can. Plus every day, I managed doing basic stretches etc. So though not the perfect week, it was a more consistent one.
My learning’s this week: Try having early dinners. If you have guests and you know it's gonna get crazy, it's okay to eat a bit before! Like you, when I cook a lot, I don’t feel hungry until much later and then I do tend to eat a bit more than normal. This time, I cut my fruit up before I started to cook. Felt fuller and more cheerful.
And yes, do make your food chart! It does wonders. I just realized, this week I snacked more on the yummy Namkeen than the fruit ;-)
My tempo is setting in, and I am realizing, it's not that hard. :-D Week 4.... Here I come!
Updated title: it's actual Week 3 update.. Man I am getting ahead of myself!
