I said that I would try to update you all on my exercise/weight loss journey at least once a week. Well here it is!
During the week of Veterans Day, I was out sick! I had gotten all four of my wisdom teeth pulled on monday, and it was not an easy surgery as far as the doctor was concerned. It was also not an easy recovery period for me. Not only did I have to endure almost a week in a half worth of intense pain, but I was also very sick, and it was that time of the month for me -_- I was all jacked up. So for the past two weeks I have not exercised at all. I have not been keeping up with my 100 miles by Christmas.
But guess what today is? KEEP ON MOVING MONDAY! So im back at it. 2 miles per day, 8 miles on the weekends. I have to make up for the miles I lost.
I will also be doing my Couch 2 5k once again. I am currently on week 2 of couch to 5k. And now that I am able to EAT! I will also be getting back on my healthy eating lifestyle. I have to run to the store for a few things. My jaw still hurts a little when eating hard and crunchy foods. I guess I just admitted that ive been eating bad things. After being only able to eat kids chicken noodle soup, applesauce, and a green smoothie for a whole week, it was only right that I eat something that made me feel a little better on the inside. Criticize me if you dare. I know you’d want some too if you were going through it. Oh yeah, included in that list was also my favorite ice cream that I was banned from after buying 2 small tubs of it every week. That Breyers Indulgence Caramal is EXTREMELY GOOD! Sorry im getting carried away.
Anyyyyywhooooo, I can finally go back to my favorite wheat toast, egg whites, and turkey bacon breakfasts.
So what are you guys doing for the holidays? I have been seeing alot of things about how not to gain weight during the holidays. I dont get invited to many holiday festivities. But everyone makes plans for Thanksgiving. My thing is that I will not bring home any Thanksgiving leftovers. I am sure my boyfriend will, but I will eat what I want to eat. And I will enjoy the holidays with my family. Hopefully this even works lol!
Oh yeah! P.S.! Along with my 100 miles by Christmas challenge, I had also made a vow not to look at the scale until Christmas. Well when your sick and your visiting your doctors office of course they always want you to hop on the scale. I promise I didn’t look but she said it out loud and I lost 7 pounds! Maybe even more because I got on the scale with my heavy Air Max sneakers. So I may have lost even more than that! I haven’t gotten back on the scale since, and won’t unless it deals with seeing my doctor. But that jumpstarted my motivation to get moving again! Wow! Seven pounds. I heard the weight falls off more quickly when you are just starting out.
