I am super happy to share that I am down two pounds since last week!
My secrets to success:
1. I have been super diligent about recording everything that I put in my mouth.
This has given me an accurate calorie count. It has also curtailed me from eating the boys leftovers as I clean up, because I don’t want to have to take the time to record the little amounts of food. I also have been able to see how quickly those little amounts of food add up. I see that I am wasting good calories on crap food.
2. I have been consistent with my exercise.
Although I do not get out there and push the triple jogging stroller everyday, I am getting up at 5am to get in some exercise. Some days it is Insanity. Other days I will simply run back and forth in my house (my husband travels, so there is no leaving the house at 5am to run) followed by lifting weights. I will do yoga during the boys rest time in the afternoon. I have even taken to dancing around my house some just to burn a few more calories.
On the weekends, when Daddy Cameron is home I have been pushing my mileage up and trying to make the most of the time I do get to run. I really enjoyed the longer runs I was able to get in this past weekend.
I have really enjoyed getting back to exercising daily. What I have noticed the most is that my attitude is so much better on the days that I have worked out. I am much more patient with my boys, which has been important the last two days sine it has done nothing by rain. I have also enjoyed the soreness that comes with a good work out. I know, I’m weird, but I do.
I know that I am going to have to keep it up to continue my progress. I know that not all weeks are going to be this successful. I know that I still have issues with my thyroid to work out that will affect my weight. However, I will get it done.
