Reboot..Day 2...

If I was a computer, a reboot would simply take a matter of minutes. Holding down a power button for 7 seconds, the computer turns off, pressing that same button again turns the computer back on and within a couple of minutes, the computer is working again. Technically I guess this is a cold reboot.

I think that's what's happening here with me. I have began a cold reboot. I am shutting down system to clear the glitches and start a new. I think I am going to have to shut down the system a few times to get it right.

Today was better. Not perfect, and not exactly what I am striving for, but better. Naturally I know that perfect is impossible. And I am totally fine with that. Forward progress is what I want. And Today was better. OK I've said that 3 times now :)

What was better about today?

I got up and I worked out pretty good today! I ran on my treadmill for 30 minutes. Well I ran 20 walked 10 for a total of 1.74 miles! 1.25 miles was jogging. I was pretty excited about being able to do this since I haven't really ran in about 2 months. I have been working at it slowly over the last 2 weeks.
And then I did some strength training with my resistance bands. I have a set of like 5 exercises I do and I do 3 reps of 10. I like the resistance bands, I can keep them in a drawer and I don't have any weights to worry about. I have 4 bands and they all range in resistance. I burned a good amount of calories.
That helped produce my sweaty look.....ewwwww.... LOL
After that I took Oryan for a walk. We have been going everyday after I work out. He absolutely loves it! And he gets really excited to go. So by 9:30 this morning my fitbit said I had almost 6K steps! Looks like I am going to finish the day out with about 9K.
So what struggles did I have today? I totally forgot to log my food and I couldn't stay away from the sugar. I had 2 swiss rolls and 3 cookies ....blah..... Tomorrow will be better.
 
I was happier with my scale this morning. And I got a good amount of water in today. About 96oz. Only 24oz short of my daily goal.
 
Tomorrow we work on no sugar, or at least much less, logging my food, and getting 120oz if water in.
 
Gotta get back in the routine! Tomorrow is a Wii Zumba, elliptical day. Supposed to be chilly and rainy. Hopefully it will be dry enough to take Oryan for a walk.
 
My nephew is coming down to spend the weekend with us. Hopefully we will have nice weather so he can see some of his friends this weekend.
 
OK Signing off. Tomorrow is FRIDAY!!! YAY!!! Have a great night everyone!

  1. You're doing great on the exercise front!

    When I'm really struggling with food, I commit to protein shakes for 3 days to really get it right! Do I like it? NO!! I despise protein shakes, but it helps me!
