I forgot to write a day two post. Whoops! Oh well. Let’s get right into how Days 1 and 2 went.
I gotta say, the first two days went really well. I’m hungry most of the time, but I don’t feel starved, just hungry and that I think is fine. Tells me my body is going to just have to work on getting used to getting less food on a daily basis.
Day 1 I got off to a great start, I ate right and I had a great workout at the gym. I did 20 minutes on the rowing machine after I did about 10-15 minutes of stretching. It felt great.
Day 2, though it was a great day for eating (I ended the day on target for calories) I didn’t get to go to the gym. I had a funeral to go to for a friend of the family, so I’m not going to count the missed workout against me. I ate great, so kudos to me. 🙂
Today is Friday and that means for those of you Catholics and other denominations that observe Lent, no meat today. No problem, except we desperately need to go grocery shopping. So, today I will be eating yogurt for breakfast and for lunch. Not ideal, but it’ll work. I’ve also stopped buying granola and just crumble up a granola bar into my yogurt. It ensures I keep the portion the right size and I don’t have to worry about bringing a container home, because that’s such a difficult thing to do (insert sarcasm).
Alrighty, so I’m off to a good start. Day 3 seems to be the harder day for me, at least in the past it has, so hopefully we can breeze through this day quickly and with little issue.
Lastly, I’d love to hear about your fitness challenges. What are you working on today? Are you just getting started like me? Are you just getting started AGAIN like me? Have you been on your challenge for a while now? Are you reading this and eating a bag of chips and drinking a Coke (can I have some? Kidding, or maybe not, I’m still quite hungry). I’d love to hear from you. That’s what makes this whole thing bearable. Have a great day.
