So here we are. Week two, day 1 of the rest of my life!
I was unfortunately woken up at 5:30am this morning by Alexis. Little one has been battling a bad diaper rash again. She was up every couple of hours. Needless to say it was very difficult for me to start my workout this morning. But Carson hung out with her for a little bit while I went and did my workout. It was a little too chilly this morning outside so I decided to break out my Wii Active game. Damn that game rocks! I started out with some running and walking for a few minutes and then switched to cardio boxing for a few more minutes, then finally did some passing and shooting 'basketball'. Those workouts might not seem like much but boy do they kick your ass. I didn't up my time limit on my workout yet. I still think I'm going to stay with 15 minutes again this week and then next week I'm upping it to 20. Slow and steady wins the race! I need to remember to pace myself or I'll burn myself out.
I'm so glad I decided to just get up and do my workout earlier. I feel great and energized and am now enjoying a really yummy berry protein shake I made! I'm using the protein shakes to help me recover from my workouts, plus a breakfast alternative since breakfast is my hardest meal. The recipe is super easy and delicious!
Very Berry Shake
1 cup non-fat milk
1/2 cup frozen unsweetened strawberries
1/2 cup frozen unsweetened raspberries
1 cup frozen vanilla yogurt (I used regular yogurt because I didn't have frozen)
1-2 scoops whey protein powder
OH MY GOODNESS it's delicious! Nice and thick and creamy. I'll take this for breakfast any day!
Okay okay. I know. I've been putting it off. You're probably all wondering about my weigh-in. Well.... Drumrole please...............
Last weeks weigh-in 01/17/2011: 308 lbs
This weeks weigh-in 01/24/2011: 306.5 lbs!!!
OH YEAHHHHH! It's not a great number but I'm down and that's all that matters to me! I'm actually looking forward to this week. I'm feeling very excited about losing weight, exercising and eating healthy! I raise my protein shake up in a toast to healthy and long life! Salud!!!
