Fitness Week Two
I just completed my second week of the 30 Day Shred. And though I really haven't seen any physical results, I have faith that my body will change. I have to be realistic, after 5 years of not doing any form of physical exercise, I cannot expect my body to change in two weeks. Also, this week I changed my way of eating. I don't believe in diets, but I do believe in eating in moderation. I am going to continue eating what I always have, because for the most part I eat pretty healthy, I just need to cut down on my portions. It's been hard because after I'm done eating I still feel hungry, but I have to keep focused and in time my stomach will get used to it. I also need to cut down on my consumption of sweets, I never had a sweet tooth, but after I had my first child I really craved it. So, I do attribute sweets to my weight gain, with that being said, I think it's okay to have sweets once in a while and in moderation.
Another good thing about getting up and exercising is that it gives me energy and helps me have a better attitude. I guess it's true what they say, exercise releases endorphins and endorphins make you happy. This morning, prior to my workout, I was in a really bad mood because of the cat my husband decided to get a few months ago. As it has gotten more comfortable in our home, he has taken too may liberties and thinks he can do what ever he wants. Needless to say, after my workout I felt much better, I guess I released some steam and the endorphins kicked in.
Counting this month, I have 5 months and 3 weeks to reach my goal. So far 2 weeks down, many more to go.
