Week 4 day 2 done, ouch! I am really just making it through the 5 minute runs, by the time it’s done I am thinking oh thank goodness, I need to walk. I will see how day 3 goes hopefully it will be easier. I found the same thing today as I did Tuesday in that the second 5 minutes was much easier then the first one. It’s not even that it’s hard, it’s just…exausting I guess, not painful, hard to explain, I just start to feel exausted and a tad spinney.
Tonight is the second time I did 30 minutes of weight circuits after my run, I hope that the two things combined help me to see or feel some results sooner, I have been feeling depressed that a month in my pants are just as tight. I have always liked weight training anyhow so it’s an easy addition for me, also it helps that I hate my chubby arms and am very driven to slim them down. I always felt embaressed when pregnant with Evan that they used a bigger cuff on me to measure my blood pressure, I guess I never thought of my arms as abnormally large, but hey, less jiggle would make me content.
Next step-detox, get the sugar out out out. I am addicted and need to get it out of my system to break the addiction. I never used to be a sugar girl at all, not a junk food person period. However Dave is, and since we have been together in the last 5 years plus a pregnancy I have gained 25 pounds and several inches. More then that, I CRAVE sugar, I need it 2 times a day, mid day I need a tea and something sweet and then after dinner. I don’t put sugar in my coffee or tea and don’t drink anything else besides water, plus these sweets I keep in the low calorie department but none the less, they make me tiered and make me feel like crap so it’s best to get rid of that habit.
P.S I have cut out 90% of my coffee since I said I wanted to, I switched to green tea, chai tea or chamomile tea.
Small steps to a healthier me.
