Well I have been able to walk the dog almost every day for 30-40 minutes which is nice for both me and the dog! It is so cold outside too, about 30 degrees or below but after about the first 5 min. it does not seem so horrible.
I have also been using my leg weights and arm weights every day. Since I am walking the dog at a pretty consistent fast speed I am keeping to the toning exercises while watching TV. I am going to post what kind of toning exercise in my next post.
I feel really good. I have a lot more energy during the day and have actually been “chasing” with my 3 ½ year old and keeping up, yay! She loves it and says; “mommy you are the best chaser ever!” This alone is so worth what I am doing, I am actually playing with my daughter again and I love it!
As far as eating goes I am finally starting to be satisfied with one serving at every meal. For awhile there I was going to bed pretty hungry but now I am feeling satisfied with one descent serving. I am also craving fewer sweets (until today which is PMS day) and I have not wanted ANY soda at all. This has been nice. The more I work out the more I crave water and juice. Soda does not even sound refreshing. I am sure come day 1 of my period I will have a soda but we will see.
Things are really looking good so far. Will do measurements after this weekend again. Let’s hope for some good news.
