After posting about my quest to have 30 days of healthiness this month a few days ago, I’ve so far been doing great on the working out front, but not so great on the healthy eating front. I haven’t missed a day of physical activity yet. Here’s what I’ve done:
Nov 1 – 30 Day Shred
Nov 2 – 30 minutes of Just Dance
Nov 3 – Trip to the gym. 30 minutes on the elliptical followed arm and leg weights circuits and abs
On the 2nd, I almost didn’t make it. I had a bad day at the office, D had a bad day at the office. I didn’t get a lunch break that day so I couldn’t work out then. I missed waking up early because I had a terrible night of sleep. But then around 8PM I decided my goal was too important to quit on the SECOND DAY and did it. I even felt a little better afterward.
Yesterday I was looking forward to getting on the elliptical and listening to some new music on my iPod. I really haven’t made any gym trips in a while so I was happy to be getting back. But then… my iPod battery died 10 minutes in! I almost wanted to stop – but again I pushed through and did it anyway. Let me tell you, it’s really easy to get bored on the elliptical when there’s nothing else to do and it’s completely silent.
Today I will probably go easy and do one of my light workouts for about 20 minutes. And even more importantly, it’s time I really start controlling my portions when eating and reducing the amount of processed foods in my diet. That will be the most important thing over the next few days. I really would like to start forming healthier habits before the holidays roll around!
