I haven’t weighed in this week yet (tomorrow), but I’ve been trying to make some changes that will hopefully get me back in shape: I’ve had probably 4 or 5 green smoothies this week, I’ve been trying to have a veggie with dinner and/or lunch everyday, and today I got on the elliptical for the first time since last August.
I did 7 minutes this afternoon – random, I know, but the oven timer went off – and I just did another 14. I wanted to stop much sooner because my legs felt like they were on fire, but I kept going until I couldn’t take anymore.
That combined with the shoveling I did this morning gave me a decent workout for a beginner.
I just have to keep at it and I should start seeing results as long as I cut back on the cookies and pizza. And the wine.
I got this chianti from Trader Joe’s for $4.99, and to be honest, I wasn’t expecting it to be very good. But it was! So good that I may or may not have finished the entire bottle. No hangover today either!
