{Wednesday Weigh In} : (1.9.13) Down 2

Written by Mommy Cameron | Getting Fit

I am super happy to share that I am down two pounds since last week!

Wednesday Weigh In

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.
