Day 3 of this challenge is going to be a recap of July 2. As you all know (from day 2 post), I started a two week weight loss challenge and yesterday was day 1. I have to say I am very proud of myself for starting off on the right foot. Taking a long break from exercising really showed how out of shape I was today. Gladly, I had my husband beside me working out and supporting me all the way. It was only fifteen minutes of working out but it really felt like an eternity. I so desperately wanted it to be over every thirty seconds. After it was over I felt accomplished and out of breathe at the same time. I know that it is going to take some time to get my body used to working out again but I refuse to give up. One day at a time is my plan as well as having my support system (hubby) by my side. We will continue to work out and eat better together.
I think I did pretty good with eating healthy today too although I know I did not do well with eating enough. I will do much better tomorrow. For breakfast I had two eggs, a V8, and some water. For lunch I had a taco salad from taco bell with just the lettuce, tomato, cheese, chicken, and no shell. Dinner was skipped only because I ate my lunch so late but that will not happen again for the remaining two weeks, I promise!! I drank nothing but water and plenty of it. Juice, soda, and alcoholic drinks were off limits and I am extremely proud of myself so far.
This morning, I took my beginning weight and measurements and have set a goal for next week. The only thing I am worried about is how well I will do on the July 4th holiday. I am going to a cookout at my uncle’s house and I know there will be a lot of food there that could sabotage my efforts so early in the game. Anyway, below you can find my beginning weight and where I hope to be at next week. If I am not where I want to be it’s okay, I understand that it is not going to happen overnight. Although I would love it to it just doesn’t work that way. Day 1 was a great day and I look forward to the rest of the two week challenge. I will be sure to keep you all updated everyday on how I am doing.
Beginning weight – 226 (ugh!) Next week goal weight – 223
Beginning waist – 44 Next weeks goal – 43
Wish me luck!!
