So technically the first week of June ended yesterday, but I couldn’t postpone blogging about Charlotte any longer! 🙂
Here’s how I did for the first week:
1. Lose 6 pounds. Epic fail here. I actually gained .2 pounds this week, weighing in at 196.6. I am SO ready to see something besides 196 on the scale! I am sure the gain is due to the not one but two anniversary dinners Stephen and I had–one at Outback and one at The Melting Pot. YUM.
2. Cardio for at least 30 minutes, 3 times a week. Success! I completed 4 workouts this past week, one of which was 45 minutes, and I am now in week 5 of Couch to 5k.
3. Strength training twice a week. Fail. This is pitiful, but I completely forgot I made this goal! Oops.
4. Read a Proverb each day. Success 6/7 days. I am really enjoying reading Proverbs, and it’s easy to know where I left off because I just go by the date. 🙂
So I did great in the exercise department and poorly in the eating department. However, I do actually feel like I am making progress with my eating because I am much more mindful of why I want to eat and am trying to stop and think before shoving food in my mouth. It’s going to be a long journey, but I am going to see it through.
Here’s to a better week two!
