Week 2 completed, week 3 started….

I am down 6.4lbs. So I’m working at this.

My goals are 1200 calories or less a day but not to many less. I try and make sure I’m not over 8400 calories for the week. This week was 7597. My goal is to work out 3 times a week with the C25K and some strength training. I went 5 days and completed Week 1 of the program. I am to drink 100 oz of water a day and 6 out of the 7 days I did this, Sunday I fell short by 20 oz. No eating after 6:30, all days but Sunday and Jim fixed us brussel sprouts and a glass of milk at 7:30 because we were starving, could of been worse. Sleep is so hard at times. It’s not that I don’t go to bed, it’s just that I don’t sleep. Menopause I think has some to do with that so I just do my best to get my 7-8 hours in. So all in all it was a good week.

Now this week I am going to continue on the same path. It’s working and my partner is doing awesome too so onward and downward we go.

I would like to add one stretch exercise I do each and every day. I am very bad at stretching. I have said it before it’s just something I don’t take the time to do but it’s time to get one good one in each day and learn a new one each week. This week is going to be lower back stretching. I found this youtube video I can do and understand and it’s a good place to start. If you have any other ideas I’m game. I don’t want a full route yet because I know very well I won’t do it but if I start small and work into one, well that’s my idea.

I am back to my regular bus route plus my midday routes today and than the rest of the week will be normal and time to do things I need to do. No school on Friday/Monday so that means I’ll be having daycare. We are going to work on some special Easter crafts on Friday and on Monday go swimming.

It’ll be another great week or at least I am going to try my best to keep on the track that I’m running. Speaking of running, thank you everyone for your words of wisdom. I will do my best and let the Lord worry about the rest. If I run a 5K in 50 minutes, than so be it. I’ll try to get better each time but will just be happy that I can do this.

Take care and do have the most blessed week possible.
