Friday was great actually. I had a really easy time of it. For Christmas, hubby gifted me the new Wii Active expansion pack, so I opened it up Thursday night and read the paperwork on it. Then Friday, I busted it out and decided to go with the 6-Week Challenge. I like the idea of having to do it on certain days to keep up with it rather than having to pick the routine when I use it. And it was good! I enjoyed it (though my body didn't on Sat. when I was sore!). And food was great! Ate within my points and did well, drank water, increased fruits and veggies. I was doing good.
Saturday wasn't good. :-( I started off the day sleeping in later than I wanted and missed the chance to run outside. So, rather than do nothing, I used the treadmill. We have one, but it's not the greatest, but it suffices when you need something. I thought I could do my 2 mile run on it and oh no, was I mistaken! I got 1 mile and was DYING. It was so sad. BUT, it was my first run in three weeks, so I'm not too bummed about it. I recognize the treadmill isn't professional quality and it's rougher than being outside. I recognize I haven't run in three weeks. So, I have to build up a little more than I thought. No biggie. Food was the killer. I ate a banana after running, then we were gone all afternoon and I didn't eat again until dinner at 5:00 p.m. And ate I did! Ugh. It was not pretty. I went overboard with cheese fries and cookies when we got home. :-(
Sunday was just a total disaster. I did do the Wii Fit. The goal was 30 minutes, but I did 45, so I was excited about that. Especially since I did want to be done at 30 minutes, but I added in some balance exercises that upped it to 45 minutes. And that was the best thing I can say about the day. I ate like CRAP! We have so many left overs from the holidays that I just snacked on them all day. Especially at night. Ugh.
I think I got it out of my system though. Today, I got up and did Day 2 of the 6-Week Challenge. It made me do more crunches and ugh, push-ups! I haven't done those in AGES. I expect pain tomorrow. LOL! I also ate a good breakfast (cereal, banana, coffee with soy milk) and lunch was a BIG salad! Very happy that lunch was veggie based. We need to get ourselves back into veggies for lunch. So, we have Romaine lettuce, yellow onions, red/green/orange/yellow peppers, carrots, broccoli all chopped and ready for anything. That should go a long way towards getting us back on track and moving towards our health goals for the year.
As to my professional goals - I ordered a refill for my planner, which I will need! I should have that next week. I am going to spend the after noon figuring out the next steps in going forward on my photography business. AND I saw that a local community college is looking for professors, so will head over to their website to see if there's anything I can apply for. Wish me luck!
