I haven't updated in about a week or so because simply, I was just not in the mood. Life seems to have been busy and the kids also had 3 days off last week due to an ice storm. That kind of slowed things down a bit.
I just wanted to take a minute to blog about my journey. I know that this all started because a friend and I wanted to do a Biggest Loser challenge but it has turned into so much more than that to me. Honestly, I didn't even want to start it in the beginning. I just didn't feel like exercising! Now that I have been doing it for an entire month today, I look forward to exercising every morning. I haven't skipped one day yet! I am going in to get weighed and measured in about an hour so we will see how that goes. I can tell that I am starting to change and others around me can see it, too. That is the most important thing. Pounds don't really matter. Plus, I am lifting weights 6 days a week, too, and really toning my body. I am soooo glad that I started this journey. I have an entire different outlook on my life and my children's lives. Things have really changed around here. For example, I am making them healthy snacks when they arrive home from school, and I am making a conscious effort to cook them healthy food for lunches and dinners.
This week I am doing 1.75 miles on the treadmill. Yesterday I ran for 16 minutes in a row of that. Today, I kind of sprinted for 1 minute increments. I felt like I got an equal workout for both.
We have on our calendar the 5K we are running. It is ............................ April 4th!! Wish me luck!!!!
