Challenge day 3: Better day!

Thursday, June 17, 2021

So, as the title says, today was a much better day. I woke up and went straight out the door for a workout. Hubby actually brought home an elliptical for me last week! I've been afraid to use it for some reason. Well, this morning I finally pushed myself and got through it.

It was a HARD workout. I was sweating by the end. I basically just put a long video on my phone with music and tried to distract myself through it. I was sweating after 5 minutes-OUCH!

In the end, I felt amazing and that it was worth it! I'm a bit sore but definitely worth it! I'm hoping to use it often. I want to start running again so badly but I'm definitely very out of shape. Hopefully the elliptical can help me gain some strength back and move forward.

Breakfast: I had tea again, it was very good. Sometimes the tea alone can fill me up but not often. I want to eventually use tea to get me into intermittent fasting again....some day.

with the tea, I had this veggie smoothie my husband made for me. It looks pretty gross but actually tastes good. Lately, my husband has been making these for me every morning. I'm grateful but feel bad because I realized he is worried about my weight.

The kids were crazy today. I could barely get any work done. My son had a constant attitude and my baby girl was crying about everything. It made me start craving bad stuff. I wanted to just go to the drive-thru. But, I held strong and had a salad for lunch! emoticon

Still, I love them! They just drive me crazy sometimes.

I wish there was some kind of race or something I could train for/look forward to. I could probably plan my own at home but where's the excitement in that? I just need something to motivate me and keep me moving forward. Something to look forward to....

Still posting on Facebook if you'd like to follow there as well!

Well, that's all for today. I will be weighing in tomorrow. Probably not much difference as I started this challenge late this week, but hey, you never know. Either way, I'm going to get it over with!

Until tomorrow!

    The elliptical helped me lose over 30 lbs and get me in shape to be able to participate in my first ever 5K. It is boring, but well worth it.
    Have a nice weekend.
