MY. LEGS. ARE. ON. FIRE. And my heart feels like it’s about to pop out of my rib cage. I started. It’s officially Day 1. I just finished with my work out. I won’t over-do it, because I have in the past and have greatly regretted it the next day. I am SO out of shape. I only jogged/power walked for about 15 minutes. Did 2 reps of 25 crunches, and could only fork out 15 push ups . I’ve never been the best at push-ups since I’m “top heavy”, but I could at least do 30 without collapsing. But I did it! Now, to continue doing it.
*edit* I did 25 leg lifts (those that work out your butt? Have no idea what they’re called). What I ate on 1/12/05:
â€¢ 1 C. coffee
â€¢ a bowl of banana/strawberry Cheerios with 1/2 C. milk
â€¢ Salad w/ a tiny bit of bacon bits, a small amount of ranch dressing (I can’t eat that fat-free crap, ew), 5 croutons
â€¢ Small slice of lasagna
â€¢ 1/2 McDonald’s Grilled Chicken salad
â€¢ 1 pudding-filled Donut
â€¢ and later, a cup of Raspberry iced tea
I figured it was okay to eat the donut. It was the only “junk food” I’d had all day. Plus, I’m not doing this to starve myself or eat rabbit food for the rest of my life. I’m just limiting myself (which I’ve needed to do for a while already). I’m pretty happy with how I’m doing so far. But then again, it’s only Day 1 LOL.
I figured this is what I’ll do. Regular blog entries will have a regular title, weight loss progress with be named Day 1, Day 2, etc. I’m still debating whether to use my LJ as a weight loss journal or to make a cute little page for that here. Until then, I’ll go with this :P.
A few things to remember:
â€¢ A cup of coffee’s okay as long as you follow it up with 8oz. of water (per cup).
â€¢ 5-6 hours of sleep= faster weight gain 7-8 hours sleep=ideal sleep time
