Starting December Right!

Monday, December 01, 2014

Today I decided to track and will try to continue this. I am pretty excited. It's 5:30 pm and I am at 1450ish with my range of 1400-1700. I think I might be might be stay in range. This morning I skipped the banana in the cereal than stopping somewhere for morning coffee. Who knows how many calories are in a cup of coffee these days? It's not like I just drink it black. emoticon

Right now I am trying to resist my craving for chocolate. In fact, I popped a piece of gum to get my sweet at the end of the meal. In a hour I will be heading to my first Fit Camp class so no time to snack due to boredom or stress. I am pretty tired. I am fighting the urge to get some coffee to give me a boost before class.

The first week of work I would work out at 5 am! emoticon Honestly, I really liked it. Than, last week I just didn't want to get out of bed. I tried to work out after work but parking was too dang busy. This week I think I will try to workout at 7 pm. It's enough time to go home, eat supper and go to gym afterwards when the parking has cleared some. It's important I find something that works. emoticon

If you are curious for my December goals (it IS December 1st!), I plan to workout MWF with Fit Camp and Tu/Th/Sun with running which is 5-6 times a week. I also want to keep up with tracking. Essentially, I'd like to get under 200. In January, I want to try to do a 10K but we will see. If I get bored with my workouts, I just don't go. I am trying to prevent that! emoticon

    The whole coffee thing is a mystery, I don't do coffee often but every once in a while. After finding out some of the special coffees have 400 or more calories I now stick to just regular coffee with just some milk if possible. I used to drink some of the cappuccino's at irvings but they sock it to you on calories too, the vanilla one I like is 475 calories for a 20 oz,, who would think that anyway, so sometimes I pour about 1/4 of a cup in a regular coffee so I get the taste but not all the calories!

    You have a good plan, and I like that you've already tried working out @ 5 am and know you can't sustain that. THAT is so important on this journey to figure out what will work, or NOT!

    Wishing you luck tonight.

    Keep up the amazing work! I generally try to stay away from coffee because, like you said, coffee is not just coffee anymore! And I CANNOT drink it black! I have deemed it a "Sometimes snack" :-) Tomorrow I am going to try to work out at 6am, but we'll see how well that works out! Keep up the great work!
