Weigh-In Wednesday: Week 1 Recap
Though I'm not actually weighing in every week (True confessions: I don't own a scale), I want to blog about how I did with my fitness plan weekly to help keep myself on track. Checking in once a month would invite too much slacking.
How did I do?
Eating Right - WIN. It's taken a ton of self-control, but I didn't eat any unnecessary snacks, my meals consisted largely of fresh veggies and lean protein, I kept portion sizes under control, and limited my sugar intake to some sweetened creamer in my coffee in the morning. I also only indulged in an adult beverage on the weekend. Success!
Exercise - WIN. While I didn't do some sort of insane, hardcore workout every day, I DID do something active. Whether that was riding, working hard at the barn, going for a run, or doing a half hour Pilates workout on my living room floor, I did at least one physically demanding activity every day. If it makes my muscles at least a little sore, it counts in my book!
Week One was a resounding success, hopefully I can keep it up!
As I mentioned last week, I LOVE food and I LOVE to cook. Since a bunch of us are making the effort to eat better, would anyone be interested in healthy, delicious recipes? I would be more than happy to do a food-centric post now and then if people would appreciate that.
Happy Hump Day!
