Week 1 Recap

Well it was not my best effort but I am doing better than before. I worked out too hard on Tuesday and then again on Wednesday and I think it was too much. 😦

Since I’m not working out as much as I would like, I took control of my eating. Not eating after 8:30 pm and less eating out. I am in a water challenge with one of my coworkers. Unfortunately she was off for most of last week, but I was still trying to keep on track.

I went for a massage yesterday with a new therapist and it was everything a massage should be. Not overly painful and she gave me some stretches to do to loosen up my neck. Turns out all my sitting at a computer is not having a good effect on my shoulders. I was instructed to spend time stretch the front of my body as my neck muscles in the front are tight and shortening which is why my shoulders are hurting. Who knew?

This week I plan to get back into swing with “easy” workouts. Body weight exercises and walking. I forgot last week how far off the fitness wagon I had fallen off. But I am focused and determined.

Since I gave away/shared most of my Leslie Sansone videos, I will be putting my favourites on hold at the library. Along with a couple of Tracy Anderson videos. No/low impact for the win.

Comments on: "Week 1 Recap" (2)

  1. At the end of Feb. I moved to a “desk job” which is 100% sedentary. I work out in the mornings and go for walks twice a day to help compensate, but I still had to cut back on eating (snacking for sure) 😦

    • Sadly, I am learning that less down the old pie hole makes a bigger difference than working out. As a foodie, this saddens me to no end.
      Your exercise routine is inspiring. I am still aiming for morning workouts … lol I’m getting there, very slowly.
