Work was good and I really think I am going to like this job and that it will present many great opportunities in the future. But anyhow...on to the reason I even have this blog. Weight loss. Health. Fitness.
I brought lunch every day...salad, grapefruit, raspberries...healthy stuff. I was very proud of myself. There is a Red Lobster very near my work and that might be challenging to stay away from sometimes. I love myself some Cheddar Bay Biscuits. Mmmmm...ok. Enough of that.
Yesterday I made some not-so-great choices...like cake. and cake. and cake. And wine. But I also hit up the gym and ran a couple of miles, walked, used the elliptical and best of all, tried out the stair climber. Which kicked my butt. I was sweating like crazy, which I LOVE. I think it was just what I needed. Just what I NEED. Something new...a change up in my routine. This morning I weighed in, just to gauge how my weekend is going, and I was pleasantly surprised to find I've lost weight, not gained, like in a normal weekend. If I can do good today, I might have a decent weekly weigh in to record tomorrow.
And I am very excited to start my 2nd week of work (my first full week). Hopefully I can continue to bring healthy lunches. And I can't wait for Monday night Zumba...it has become a part of my regular schedule and I love it. Again - something different to do.
If you are looking for something new and different, or you are in a rut...and you haven't tried Zumba, or the stair climber - do it! Do it do it do it!! *Insert more peer pressure here*.
