It’s FRIDAY!! I can’t believe I made it to friday. This has been a very exhausting week. I am so not used to exercising or getting up early!!
First- TREATS IN THE WORKPLACE- I just wanted to state a problem that I recognized this week. I am a full-time employee in an office and on the first day that I started this challenge we had donuts and pizza brought in to us from salesmen. I appreciate their effort to win us over but really why can’t it be fruit or smoothies or something. And again a couple days later some more donuts were brought in. But I am proud to say that this week I have not had any donuts and I only ate one piece of pizza which is a step forward for me. And I did keep it in my alotted calories for the day. So hopefully I am starting to make small changes that will effect the rest of my life.
Second, I AM SO SORE!!! :) I know this will get easier and I noticed tonight that when I went walking that it was easier and I wasn’t as tired as I was on Tuesday when I started this journey. I love the hurts so good soreness that I am feeling tonight.
Third, FAMILY EXERCISE TIME- What better way than to spend a friday night!! I was so excited tonight as my children, Matt, Mitch and Mercedes went to the recreation center with me, so we could walk the track for a half hour. It was so good to see them out exercising and not home eating and watching TV. I know that this is going to be a great experience for the whole family. I am so grateful that I have this opportunity to get healthy. And I am greatful for all the support we are getting from the great people at IHC!!!
Fourth, KNOWLEDGE IS POWER - I am so excited with all the things that I am learning from how to operate a treadmill or other exercise equipment to the best ways to eat and keep your body healthy. I really enjoyed our first class on Thursday learning the different ways to keep in check what you are putting in our bodies. I am so excited for the many many things that I am going to learn and experience in the next 14 weeks. :)
and LAST BUT NOT LEAST - STRESSTIME - I am freaking out because KSL is going to be interviewing us and taping us while we work-out on Tuesday. I am hoping I won’t look like a total loser and hopefully someone that sees the program will gain a desire to get healthy for them and their family.
