I am just about to go to bed after finishing Day 5 of Week 1! I am so proud of myself. It has been a looooong time since I've been committed to watching what I eat and working out regularly. Tonight I passed up..... ice cream & caramel popcorn BUT I did go out to lunch with my husband and that was GREAT! I ordered water (before it was always a Sprite) and I ordered Terriyaki chicken with steamed broccoli. Super yummy and I felt good about not giving in to my temptation of always getting unhealthy food at restaurants.
This morning I played 2 hours of tennis but didn't break much of a sweat so I only gave myself about 2-3 points for that. After I went to the gym and walked for a half an hour and burned about 350 calories because I walked at an incline keeping an eye on my heart rate to make sure I stayed in the fat burning zone.
Yep, you are reading that right. I only walked for 1.21 miles but I burned 357 calories!! LOVE walking at an incline. Plus, my Plantar doesn't seem to act up as bad as when I run. Don't get me wrong, I will still run just not as much as before.
I'm going to be a little bit hungry but that is okay. I know that my body is adjusting to eating the calories that I should be eating. My husband and I were chatting after we went to lunch and I told him how usually I am STUFFED after we ate out but this time I felt satisfied. It's actually a really good feeling. :)
Hope you all have a GREAT weekend! Wish me luck! The weekends are the hardest for me, especially Sundays because I don't workout on that day so I don't earn extra points.
