Remember this and this when I told you that I was committing myself to living a healthier lifestyle. I had been doing a good job up until this past week when I had spring break. I didn’t gain any weight but I lost very little and I didn’t exercise much, which throws off my training for the half marathon. The great thing is that before I would have just given up and called it a win since I have managed to lose some weight, but this time I feel really pumped up and I’m looking forward to exercising harder this week to make up for last week. Wow, isn’t that crazy that the girl that hated to exercise and made up every excuse not to do it is actually taking matters into her own hands. That’s right meet the new and improved me the one that is actually looking forward to jogging with the hubby this afternoon.
Another thing that I’m trying to improve on is my caloric intake. I was trying to find a site that would help me keep track of my calories and I stumbled upon Fit Day. This site is awesome because it’s helping me keep track of my calories, my weight goals, and my activities. You should seriously check it out when you get a chance too. They also have a very supportive community group that has different types of discussions ranging from exercising to nutrition.
Now that I’m watching my caloric intake I have to tell you some bad news, I’m only baking a cake once a month instead of once a week. Yeah, I know it’s terrible news but I think in the long run it’s better for our overall health. Don’t get me wrong I’m still going to be baking some delicious treats, I haven’t turned into a health nut completely, I’m just toning it down a tad.
One more thing that I decided to do is join the Pound for Pound Challenge. I feel that this might motivate me even more to exercise. There you go folks that’s my update on trying to live a healthier lifestyle one day at a time.
