This week I’ve been still moving a bit slowly, wasn’t feeling 100% but also didn’t want to ignore the need to get my workouts in, so I took the easy route and did the fun stuff I like on the WiiFit and using my Joe Montana Contour Cross Trainer (ab machine I bought in the 90’s from an infomercial – I’ll have to take a picture of it one of these days when the living room isn’t so messy…can’t seem to find it online!) Of course I ignored Maya completely. I finally placed my order for EA Sports Active this morning, so I’m really looking forward to getting that and attempting the 30 day challenge!
But any activity is good activity – which calculated to another 5 pounds lost as of this morning – sure, some of those pounds were shed by the inability to eat regularly last week, but I’ll take it where I get it! 😉 The only thing I’m still struggling with is drinking water…I have some sort of aversion to it, I don’t know why…even adding lemon slices to it doesn’t seem to entice me to drink it, so it’s a challenge I’m still trying to conquer. I know if I drink more water I’ll tend to not retain it as much, so it would definitely be a win/win.
The other thing I’m trying to consciously do is actually eat a healthy breakfast – or eat a breakfast at all for that matter. I have never been a breakfast person, I tend to be satisfied with my morning coffee and by the time I look at the clock it’s time for lunch. Of course this always throws me for a loop, because then my brain tells me I’m hungrier than I am by the time dinner time rolls around…so I’ll end up eating way too much at dinnertime. So I’m shifting my mental status and trying to at least have a bowl of cereal in the morning so I can jump start my normally sluggish metabolism – I’ve not quite gotten to the point of eating breakfast every day, but I’m getting there!
I loved Jenn’s post today with some hints and tips about cooking at home – some of them I had been aware of but weren’t using regularly (like substituting apple sauce for oil) and others sound very intriguing that I’ll be incorporating into my meal making. Thanks, Jenn! 🙂
