Feel the Burn

level 5

Ok its been one week since the beginning of my journey. I have been keeping up with my journey on Noom Coach and recommend downloading it. I reached level 5 and was so excited (I love games and being able to level up). This week has been pretty interesting. I have learned so far that:

*I think I am younger than what I am

*Encouragement can come from unexpected places

*Exercise videos on youtube should be pre-watched so that you don’t just stop and say “yeah no body can move like that in real life”

*Motivation and attitude are everything

I’ve tried my best to keep up my motivation and have a positive attitude. I have done a little better on my food choices this week and hope to continue. I realized that I have a tendency to not think about vegetables when it comes to meals, especially lunch time. So I’m trying to figure out how to incorporate them better for my health. I am pleased to announce that I have lost 2 lbs this week. But even though I had a small victory this week I did have a weak moment and ate the rest of the cookie dough in the fridge, which was like 1/4 of the tube. It was fantastic.

I started this whole beginning hiit training thing and got to day 3. I was trying to do too much after not exercising for about 10 months, therefore I had weak wobbly legs for 3 days straight. I worked through the first 2 days but just rested and stretched the last day. Now my legs are back to normal and I am feeling less than inspired to go work out again. I just spent about 2 hours reading pregnancy articles and setting up a new pinterest board for nursery ideas. So i should really have more motivation….

The days that I was most successful with exercising were days that I had already planned out, as an appointment with myself. With this in mind I am going to make a weekly workout plan so I can hopefully keep it up! So Sunday, Monday. Wednesday, and Friday I will be walking for at least 30 minutes. On Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday I will be doing yoga for 20 minutes and a core workout. Other than that I going to stick with simple for right now. I need to get into a new schedule of life before completely rocking my world. So when this episode of Pretty Little Liars goes off, I’m off to go for a walk. Hopefully I can report another 2 lbs next week!
