*i've lost 2 pounds! i'm now 210, very good news for my day today, very good boost to get myself onto that tread mill!
* i'm recognizing a couple changes in myself, as well as my husband. most likely nobody else, because it's still the beginning but it's a start!
* i now crave vegetables often. that is awesome. i still crave sugar but at least i'm getting more good for me in there. i just have to work on fighting that junk food, particularly chocolate.
* why i am doing this: i've struggled with depression for years. exercise was my greatest weapon. not only did it make me feel better every day, i could do so much more. i want to lose this weight and be fit for my son, for my husband, and for me.
*i did a plank and it was much better than last time! i was able to hold it for a good 50 seconds. mississipily. (as ross would say)
GOALS FOR EVERYONE!!!
*do a plank, time it. is it better than last week? make it even better next week! lizzie wants us to progress in this.
*aim for 8-12 cups of water a day. my average is probably about 6 so i need to bump that up!
*for those of you trying to lose a lot of weight like i am, we should be aiming for 300 calories lost every day we workout! no less! making it 1250 a week! if you're like me, you might not have a way to tell how much you are working off so just go as hard as you can.
