Last week, I was talking about my New Year's goal of lifting more weights and doing cardio other than walking. So far, so good! I think that writing about it on the blog actually helped to motivate me and I have been doing better than my goal even.
For example, Tuesday, I lifted weights, did squats, some ab work, etc. Wednesday, I walked .75 miles and then ran 2.35 miles!! After that, I did a tiny bit of weights and abs. My body was not used to that running anymore and was sore- in the best way. Thursday, I mostly walked and then did a small ab workout.
Friday, I only had time to walk 3/4 of a mile. Saturday, I walked 3 miles and then did a big ab workout and a circuit workout. As I am typing this, my abs are sore so that is a good thing!
It may not sound like a lot but I am happy with my progress so far. Now, I just have to keep it up which is of course the hardest part. The reason that I kept my goals smaller such as doing the exercises 1-2 times a week is so that I could meet them. I know that if I aim for 6 days a week or something, I am only going to fail and feel bad about it.
If I keep doing well with my workouts, I may increase my goal. Exercise helps me to feel my best so I make sure to keep it up. It is not about weight loss or looking a certain way.
My one complaint is that since the flooding we had in our basement two summers ago, my silly treadmill is squeaking so much when I run which is so annoying. I wish that I had the ProForm Pro 2000 treadmill from Sam's Club.
I always eat pretty well with a treat or so everyday. If you need help meeting your nutritional needs, Sam's Club has lots of options including their Centrum Silver vitamins for men and women and the Member's Mark Omega 3-6-9 supplements. I take a daily multivitamin and omega-3 supplement daily to help meet my needs. If you need healthy foods, Sam's has a bunch of great options too such as fresh produce, hummus, veggie burgers, Greek yogurt and more. I go with my dad sometimes and love trying the different products they sell.
