Just had to do a shout out to the Beatles with that title.
Anyway, I got on my elliptical yesterday, as planned. I did 91 minutes while watching Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Dharma and Greg. Since I’m not tracking, I didn’t wear my heart rate monitor, so I don’t know how many calories I burned, but probably 700-800, based on previous stints on the torture device.
I’m sore today, but in that really good way. I am looking forward to another stint on the torture device this afternoon. I was going to get up this morning and do Jillian Michaels 30-Day Shred, but I couldn’t get out of bed early enough. So I didn’t. I may do that this afternoon, but we’ll see. I think I might wait until Saturday to start and make it part of my new 30-day challenge. That way, I’ll do it every day for 30 days, as it’s supposed to be.
The only problem with that is, the first time I did it, on day 3 I had to take a break because I literally could not move. It will probably be as bad this time around because it’s been way too long!
I did well with my eating yesterday, too. Lots of fruit and vegetables. No junk food. Not too many calories (estimated). By Saturday, I should be ready to be right back on track.
My last challenge, I lost 6 pounds. I hope to be as successful this time.
I spent the last three weeks getting through the holidays, traveling, catching up from traveling and eating, well, a lot of junk with some healthy food slipped in.
I haven’t done any formal exercise since December 29. There was quite a bit of walking in Orlando the last two weekends, but nothing hard-core.
Somehow, my clothes still fit comfortably. I haven’t weighed myself since Christmas Day, but the clothes are a good guide.
So, it seems I haven’t done any serious damage. I had Indian for dinner last night and that was my last hurrah.
As of today, I’m back to healthy eating and getting in a minimum of one hour of exercise per day (hopefully). On Saturday, my week resets and I will start tracking, exercising and I will start a new 30-day challenge (I still owe myself a massage from the last one!).
So, stay tuned. The blog will remain on hiatus until then.
