My first week on the Omron Fitness Challenge is over and I couldn’t be happier with how it’s going. This week was a learning process for me and a bit of a struggle. Going from not working out and eating not the best foods all the time takes some work and can be a challenge. This past week I worked on eating healthier and other then a few slip ups I did pretty good. I am a soda addict, but this past week I only had 3 and this upcoming week I hope to take it to ZERO! There was one night during the week I was dying for a burger and ran to Wendy’s. I actually felt guilty after eating it and I blame PMS on making me do it.
I’ve been chugging water each day and runny to the potty just as fast. It’s very annoying, but I feel so hydrated and good. It’s a nice change. I’ve been eating healthier. More fruits, veggies, whole grains, and small portions. For a good part of the week I felt like I was starving and wanted to eat everything in sight and it was a big challenge. Whenever I was super hungry or had a craving I would drink a glass of water and if I was still hungry I would eat something small and healthy like an apple, string cheese, or a few pita crackers. It seems to be working and I’m not as hungry anymore, since I think my body is finally adjusting.
I was given work outs to do each day and I was working on doing those at home, but that got really boring, especially with a 2 year old dancing around me while I was trying to work out. I knew I needed a change so at the end of last week I unfroze my gym membership and I’ve been working out there and taking full advantage of the gym daycare! I do 4+ miles on the stationary bike along with some weight workouts and my body is feeling it. I am so sore all over and when the soreness starts to go away I am met with more soreness, but I like it. I know that the workouts are working and in no time I’ll start dropping pounds. I wear my Omron Fitness Pedometer and trust me, remembering to put it on every morning is a challenge all on its own, since I have a horrible memory. I’m a little bummed that the pedometer doesn’t pick up my bike movement, but from what I’ve read, each mile is equivalent to 2,000 steps and 4 miles on the bike is about 8,000 steps. I get about 2,000 – 4,000 steps doing stuff around the house and running errands, so if I take into account my bike movement I am well over the 10,000 daily requirement. Getting those 10,000 steps sure is hard work…
I am so happy to have a LOSS this week. Since my weigh in last Sunday I am down 4lbs! Woohoo!! I hope to have another great loss next week as well!
How are you doing with your fitness and getting healthy goals? I’d love to hear them!
