Today I did a great job, I am really proud of myself. I ate lots of vegetables and protein. I kept the fat and stuff in the range I am supposed to.
I went for my walk 45 minutes today (yesterday I did 2 miles in 30 but today I was a little sore but convinced my body to take a few hills to make up for the slower pace) then with the support of my boyfriend I did some great strenght training.
Funny, before I was afraid to workout in front of him because it seemed like I was admitting that I was fat. That i was admitting that I NEEDED the exercise but today I had to exercise in the largest open space I could which meant that he could see me. And rather than hurting my workout he helped and improved it.
When I struggled to finish a set he told me I could do it and when I did it he told me good job. When my posture was off he told me to widen my stance and when I was moving too fast to reap all the benefits he told me to slow it down a little or take the squats down just a little lower.
And having him support me made me feel FANTASTIC!!!!!
Today he told me how proud he was that I was able to stick with eating healthy and that I was really putting in some good effort.
It made me feel really good. It is a very hard struggle for me. I love sweets and junk food and my high protein bar was the closest I got to dessert. But I made it. I just didnt look at the stuff I wanted and I made sure to eat good snacks (like celery and peanut butter) when the urge to snack came. I actually had to eat some extra when I realized skimpin on breakfast meant I was 150 calories too low for the day (I cup of gatorade and a protein bar put me back up there :-P).
I just feel really good. I have sadly never done so good. Now I gotta grab a shower. ALL my muscles are fatigued. I stretched real good so not sore yet but a hot bath will help keep me that way.
Day 2 complete.
