I don't like workout videos. By the third time i'm usually thinking to myself "oh shut up already, you've said that a million times". Now, obviously, they haven't - they've said it three times. And what part of my brain still expects a DVD to change it's script after the third time watching it?
Regardless, I did it. I did the 1 mile of Walking Away The Pounds. It got my heart going but I was only all sweaty and out of breath Thursday which I'm happy about. It's not a super hard core, biggest loser style work out..but it's something, and right now, I'm happy to be doing something.
Next week's goal? Get up at 6:15 and do the 2 mile.
I've also walked at lunch for 30 minutes every day except Friday. I'm a little worried about when the snow hits and it makes walking treacherous but by then I might be allowed back to the gym. If not, I guess I'll start swimming at night.
The blood pressure still isn't lowering though. Not quite sure when I'm supposed to see a difference but I'm hoping to see the doc next week and follow up with her on that.
The no night time eating thing is a lot tougher when hubby is home. Like, a lot tougher. I have had 1-2 nights of indulging in whatever treat he has made himself but last night taught me a lesson. He steamed up some Montreal Smoked Meat (that we bought in Montreal lol) and I had a couple of slices. Within an hour i had palpitations, a head ache and everything hurt. Too much salt. Lesson learned and not likely to be repeated.
And I reached my November Goals - tried new foods (spaghetti squash, tilapia fillets, and this gawd awful good for you canned soup). And lost 5lbs. So on to December!
