First let me say how proud I am of Colleen and her discipline in finding a path to healthy eating and also maintaining an exercise program. It’s taking some real determination and she is doing so well at it.
Now for me, I’ve been sticking to my eating low carb, decent quality food very well for the last 2 days. My goal is to not eat any unnatural foods and carb based foods for the next 2 weeks minus 2 days since I’ve already taken those two down successfully.
Today for breakfast I had eggs, 6 or 7 strawberries and 5 sausages. Carb total… 9 carbs. Lunch was chicken breast and hardboiled egss with a spinach salad. Carb total… maybe 2-3 in the olives and spinach. Supper was salad with olives and dill pickles on the side, and roast beef. Carb count… 4-5 for the dill pickles. so carbs for the day were… under 20. That is a good day foodwise.
Now I just have to start exercising regularly again.
Ok, so I did some working out last night and alternated from my p90x workout that got me to 218 last time I was serious about working out and losing weight.
First video that caught my attention was this guy… in 5 minutes he had my arms burning. this set is now part of my regime for sure.
I did another 15 minute circuit but the vid I had linked doesn’t bring the right video up here so I cant show it.
I fell off the exercise part for a few days and I can see now how that would normally lead me to fall off the eating portion too. I’ll be doing some resistance band exercises from youtube after work today and I’ll post the ones I do on here.
Setting up this blog is the first step toward a lifestyle change that will include more exercise and a commitment to foods that are healthy for us. I am also making a promise to Colleen that I will be doing my p90x workout every morning at 3:30 AM while out west. I’ll post a picture tomorrow evening.
