Weigh-In Wednesday: Week 2
|A more typical meal these days! Love me some veggies.|
So far, so good for the most part.
Food? WIN. I have been really awesome at not eating cookies for breakfast. This has been the easiest part of helping myself get fit, to be honest. I've not been stuffing myself to the gills at every meal, have been avoiding boredom snacks, and have seriously cut down on the carbs and sugar in my life. After 2 weeks of paying attention to when I feel full and stopping there, I've found that I just can't physically eat as much as when I just kept on eating because food tastes so good. I've also limited my beer drinking to one or two on the weekends. Big win here!
Exercise? MEH. While I did ride more this week than during Week 1, and flung around more frozen water buckets than I care to think about, I wasn't as awesome about outside-the-barn workouts as I could have been. They definitely didn't happen every day, and I let my lack of energy get the best of me. However, when I did do a Pilates workout, I noticed that some of the movements are getting easier for me, which is exciting! I can hold a plank position for longer than when I started back up with Pilates, and I can follow along with the video 'class' without having to stop some movements early because my abs were quivering like a bowl of Jell-O. While not a total FAIL, I would say that exercise was not a complete WIN for this week, either.
Next week I will actually be in sunny Florida, so I'm hoping that even though I'll be on vacation I can still keep up with these good habits. Exercising might even be easier when I can add swimming or running outside into the mix!
