This Week’s Goal: 15 minutes at least 5 times a week.
Can I just stop to bask in the pride of doing this workout thing for SIX WEEKS? That’s incredible. I guess making my goals public really was helpful in keeping me accountable! Thank you to everyone who has commented and kept me excited.
Over the last six weeks, I’ve realized that boredom is my biggest struggle. I hate doing the same thing day in and day out. I’ve found a lot of different apps and YouTube videos to keep me interested, and this week I found something else: 30-Day Challenges!
Pinterest has a lot of these, and I chose a few (Thigh-Slimmer, Arms, Butt, Abs, and Muffin Top). It takes about 11 minutes to go through all of them, and that number will increase as the days go on and the challenges get harder. I think I’m going to really like them – it’s both goal oriented and different. They should keep me going for another month!
I gave myself some leeway this week with food since I’ve had a lot of goodbye lunches, coffees, and dinners. However, I’ve tried to be wise in the midst of indulgence. If I know I have a dinner, and I don’t want to worry about calorie intake while there, I’ll intentionally eat a smaller lunch.
Similarly, I went out to eat with my cousin before we saw a movie. We were going to get popcorn because that’s what you do at a movie theater, but when we both admitted we weren’t hungry, I suggested we just not get it.
I’ve also been googling restaurant calories before going out so that I can choose something that’s on the healthier side.
In general, I’m not changing my eating habits much, just saying “no” more often or waiting longer before eating. I like being more intentional about what I’m putting in my body. It makes me appreciate food more!
Next Week’s Goal: 17 minutes at least 5 times a week.
