Earlier yesterday I had asked Michael to not snack in front of me anymore. Last night he wanted to munch on something and he jokingly said “don’t you have to go in the basement and workout?” - I had no plans to workout yesterday but for some reason him saying that made me go you know what…I think I will. The next thing I knew I was putting on my socks and sneakers at 10PM. I did a full 30 minute workout. Half of it was on the treadmill and the other half was weight lifting/leg lifts. I kicked butt too. I usually just walk at a fast pace when I am on the treadmill but I consistently jogged for the first 10 minutes and pushed myself when I was most uncomfortable. I came back upstairs feeling great and in the end it worked out for the both of us, lol!
Today is going good. I woke up and had my lemon water and then made myself a cup of green tea with oatmeal for breakfast. I used my last avocado and made guacamole again and had it with the rest of the tortilla chips for lunch. For dinner I am going to have the leftovers of rice, mushrooms & onion from yesterday. I am on my 3rd cup of green tea right now and am half way through my 75oz water jug. I have not yet worked out today but I plan on it. I feel I am back off to a great start. I am excited to be making progress again. I just have to keep and it up and before I know it I will be where I want to be. It may seem like forever now but there will be a day when I will look back and it will only feel as if I had blinked.
