Just stopping by to update you all on how I’m doing. Which is good. I’m on track, eating the right things, drinking lots of water, and working out.
I am on plan with my Bootcamp. I really didn’t feel like working out this evening (this is why I workout in the morning and not the evening!), so I biked for 40 minutes for the cardio interval. Whenever I don’t feel like working out, biking always seems appealing. So I’ll go with it. I biked 10 miles and was actually covered in sweat when I was done.
Ultimately, I would like to run during those interval workouts. I feel it’s a better cardio workout for me. Slowly but surely I will get there. I have three workouts (2 mandatory) left for the week. I can do this!! I will be up at 5 a.m. tomorrow to make sure I fit in my workout.
I have a confession to make. I ate food out of the vending machine two days this week. Both days, I was feeling exhausted and headachey (the new blood pressure meds aren’t working) and for some reason I always think that if I don’t feel well, food is somehow going to cure that. Oddly enough, I actually did feel better after eating the food, but that tells me that maybe I wasn’t eating enough or maybe not FILLING enough foods at lunch time.
So this morning, while packing my lunch, I decided I had better switch things up. If what I was packing wasn’t keeping me out of the vending machine, then I had better pack something different that would. The answer was almonds. I snacked on almonds and stayed out of the vending machine today! Yay!
