I am ready. I had my personal training session on Saturday at our new gym and yesterday, Todd and I went for a hike with the kiddo. Both good workouts as I am super sore, mostly in my legs and butt. It feels so good to work out again.
I am also eating better already and want to continue doing so. We have bought a whole lot of healthy foods and our fridge and freezer are stocked. Now I just have to choose to eat only the good stuff and in moderation. My problem is, I eat too much. Period. It is hard to cut back because I end up feeling hungry all the time but I am determined.
30 pounds. That is the goal. In the last year I had lost almost 30 but gained some back. I am still down overall from this time last year but want to lose more and make exercise a regular part of my life. I realize I won't always be able to eat perfect, but if I do my best most of the time, the exercise will help me at least maintain once I am done losing. I know I have to eat clean for quite a while in order to lose the weight I want and I think that will be the hardest part. Once I get going working out and get in a routine, it is a lot easier.
My dilemma is, do I do only cardio at the gym, only weights, both? What do I do at home on days I don't want to/can't make it to the gym? I am struggling to find a routine that will work. I guess I can keep switching it up but just don't what direction to go in. I think as long as I keep moving, that is key. I need to stay up off my butt more to burn more calories and lose more weight. That is hard with a desk job, but can be done.
I can't even imagine what I will feel like if I lose 30 pounds. It will be nuts! I will be near the smallest I have ever been and I think I will feel amazing! I can't wait for that feeling so I wanna get going in a hurry. I am at the point I wish I could work out twice a day just to lose weight faster but I don't know if it's possible without giving up a ton of sleep and getting sick a lot.
For now I just need to do the best I can and prepare as much as possible for meals, snacks and workouts so I am not caught off guard too much. That's all for now.
