I haven't done one of these in a long time but I am linking up with #FitReaders today. It's hosted by the Geeky Blogger Book Blog and That's What I'm Talking About.
I've been working really hard to get back in the groove of doing serious exercise. For most of the year, I have just exercised by walking; there's nothing wrong with that but my body needs more strenuous exercise in order to lose weight. I also really need to build some muscle back up because my body just feels awful lately (I feel like an old lady!). I started doing Couch 2 5K again; this is my third time doing it and I love how it helps my body get used to running again. I just finished week 3 yesterday so I'm really excited about that.
For the past two weeks, I have exercised 5 days. Three days a week I have been doing the C25K runs and then the other two days, I have been doing Jillian Michael's "Ripped in 30" DVD. I really love that workout. It's hard but it's so much better than the 30 Day Shred. I am hoping that starting next week, I can move to working out six days a week.
This week I actually started doing some of my workouts in the morning. For many many years (until I had my daughter), I would get up between 4:00 and 4:30 in the morning to workout because that worked best for me. Since my daughter has had a lot of sleep issues, working out in the morning has been impossible. She is sleeping better for now (knock on wood!) so I decided to try it out this week. I did three of my workouts in the morning which made my evenings much less stressful. I have to really start making myself go better earlier but I think I am going to try to do most of my workouts in the morning. It's a great way to start the day!
I don't want to talk about my eating. I am using My Fitness Pal again and did okay last week and pretty good this week. The next few weeks will be tricky with Father's Day, my daughter's birthday and the 4th of July but I'm going to try do the best I can.
Anyway, that is all! I'm terrible at keeping up with these posts but I'm hoping to do better over the next few months.
