3 weeks with a regular exercise program for me. For many that might sound insignificant or hardly worth celebrating but for me - it's something.
I've certainly exercised before. But very intermittently. Never regular. I'd spend a whole week on the treadmill - then ignore it for a month whining about how much I "should" get on it. I've done my pilates video - then woken up with sore muscles and ignored it for a month just to repeat what happened he last time.
Well, I've been on the treadmill for 3 weeks solid and while I am still going pretty slow, it's getting easier and I'm upping the MPH. Slowly. Still have to be careful of the ankle but so far it hasn't been yelling at me.
Now I'm in a regular routine of waking up early and I am finding myself planning my exercise. I am a planner, big time. But I have NEVER planned exercise. I'm actually thinking ahead for when is the best time to get on the treadmill and when to do other exercises. I DO feel better and I am enjoying that it is becoming part of my routine.
Bagel thin, cheese & egg beaters = 175
Yogurt = 100
Chicken Bean Wrap = 225
Another chicken bean wrap = 225
I had planned for 2 cups of beef stew but never got to the second one and was never hungry for it. It was a slightly heaping cup of stew that came in at 222 calories and it filled me up. I went on the treadmill after and then finished up school with the kids, did some bible reading with them and never thought about food again. Until I came to post this.
I am finding myself slightly hungry at the moment but I will be in my bed in less than 5 minutes so I will deal with it. I am way more sleepy than hungry.
