1. Only drink one carbonated beverage a day.
CHECK! Getting easier every day.
2. Try one new fruit or vegetable. Tomorrow! This will happen!
3. Re-start Couch to 5K and do all of my week 1 runs.
I do not know why it was so hard to get runs in this week. I only got in half a one during the work week. Tomorrow is out for running because of a planned trip to the aquarium. I'll get in lots of steps though... just not the endurance training I need.
4. Pack my lunch every day.
Check! I successfully did this all work week! Woohoo!
5. Drink my shake every morning.
Check! I need to get back to being creative with my shakes. I drank simple chocolate most of the week. I need to get back to adding coffee, and fruit and random additives again!
6. Alternate doing push ups and crunches every night. I'm trying to work
up to 10 full on the ground push ups and 100 crunches at a go.
Check!! Push ups... I will own you!!
My week was absolutely crazy in work, out of work, Zumba related. Everything was insane. My credit card number was stolen. My feet tried to revolt at the end of Zumba Thursday night. We're running ragged trying to get National Dance Day and Zumbathon plans ironed out for the next two weekends.
It's totally wild and crazy and awesome and terrible.
I also had a doctor appointment that was .... interesting. Firstly - most of the nurses at the doctors office know me as the Zumba instructor. I didn't realize how many of them take my classes or know me by reputation.
I got venting my annoyance with the slowness of my recent weight loss with one of the nurses. She mentioned it to the doc and we got talking. I wound up on a prescription appetite suppressant.
I'm not sure how I feel about this as I'm not a big fan of pills in weight loss but he and I discussed it and my concerns about the volume of food I've been eating (even if within reason calorically) had me concerned. He thinks a short term course of this med may help me readjust my eating schedule and find something that works for me.
We'll see if I stay on it. Today was day 1 and I was SUPER PRODUCTIVE because it made me focused and jittery and I'm way low on my calories for the day. I feel good and we'll see if this continues. I see the doc again in a month to see how my weight and measurements have changed with the meds help.
