I have the motivation today! I feel accomplished. I got up and went for a 1 mile walk (with a slight 5 min jog). I finished in 21 minutes and did some stretching. I have drank 5 glasses of water already today, 3 more to go. I met a good friend of mine (Leah) for lunch at Cracker Barrel and I ordered a grilled chicken salad, which was yummy! I also remembered to take my vitamins.
My energy level was marvelous earlier, but the last hour or so I felt foggy headed and tired. Like if I sat still long enough I would just fall asleep and sleep for a full 8 hours. So now to find out what makes me feel that way so as to not hit my lazy slumps as this feeling happens often to me.
I am going to walk another mile this evening. That will make 2 miles today and its a good start.
I definitely have to start small on my exercising.... my resting heart rate is 92 bpm. A brisk walk has my heart rate between 168-172 bpm, an all out jog had me at 198 bpm. This my friends is proof of being way out of shape. Baby steps! If I start now, then I should be able to start seeing my resting heart rate decrease along with my poundage. :) I weigh more now than I have ever in my life!!!! EVER! I weighed in at 192 lbs on 5/31/2011 and today it was 189 lbs. So this week I have went down 3 lbs watching what I eat a little and throwing in some exercise! My weight loss goal is to reach 170 lbs (baby steps) That is 19 lbs. I should be able to reach that goal by the end of this summer. Then, I will set myself another goal for Fall.
