Summer Challenge Halfway Mark
Wednesday, July 22, 2015
In June I signed up for a summer challenge. I'm half way thru, so I though I'd depress myself and do a "mid-challenge" review. haha
-running 3x a week. I'm doing ok on this. Some weeks I'm good, others not so much. Getting better though.
-bodypump - eh... what? haha haven't been in probably a month.
-walk or elip once a week. Yes! I walk on Sunday mornings.
Actually doing pretty good on this. Go me.
3. Track my food.
Um... uh.... You know, I start out pretty good in the mornings, but I'm horrible at tracking dinner.
Goal was to lose 20 lbs, I don't know that I've lost weight. It's super possible I've put on a few lbs the last 2 weeks. I missed my weigh in on Monday morning. I may need to go back to weighing myself daily. I know it doesn't work for alot of people, but I may need that daily accountability, atleast for awhile until I get consistent with losing again.
The Bad/Good news is... Well, the bad news is, DH has been diagnosed with Diabetes. The good news is hopefully this will put us on the same page with our diet and exercise. I'm hopeful that having him on the same team, so to speak, will help us BOTH live a healthy lifestyle.
Going forward... I'm still planning on keeping up with my running & walking. It's a weekly debate with bodypump. I can go to class either right after work or a little later in the evening. The problem is I tend to want to stay home once I'm home in the evenings, so the class right after work is really the best option. I just have to remember to pack my work out clothes the night before and take them with me.
