Hi All, I had to update my step goal. Last week, I managed to reach my step goal of 3500 steps a day for three days. My body was pissed off at me on Sunday. I had also done The Fat Chick Works Out DVD three times. I spent all day in bed on Sunday and Monday. I was that sore and worn out. So instead of stopping exercise all together, I am going to be even more gentle with myself. I’m going to set my step goal for 2000 steps a day and I’m going to progress to week 2 of The Fat Chick for three days this week.
Eating Well? Kinda of Sort of.
So I decided that I would tackle my eating issues by planning out my meals and cooking. So Saturday I went to Trader Joes and bough a whole lot of salad greens and lentils and brown rice and chicken for a stir fry. I have largely moved away from ordering in food and fast food. I have been drinking a lot of water, but I still have occasionally eaten poorly. I will start logging in my meals on MyFitnessPal so that I can be more aware of my calorie intake.
A Bigger Size
It’s summer and I want some new clothes. I decided to order about five maxi dresses through Avenue.com. The dresses were cute and cheap. They arrived on Saturday. I tried them on and they were all too tight. I had gone up a size. That was disappointing. I immediately mailed the clothes back to the Avenue in order to exchange them for the next size up. I debated with myself about keeping the smaller size as motivation clothes, but I decided not to. 1. I want to wear some nice summer clothes right now. 2. I don’t want to crash diet or over exercise just in order to fit into some new clothes. I think that will do more to hurt my wellness journey in the long run.
July is National Blog Posting Month so I will be attempting to update this blog every single day. Thanks For Reading, Karen
