So, I’m checking in for another fitness Friday and the big question right now is; “Am I getting shapely?”
Sure I am! Round is a shape!
All joking aside, I do think I am getting into a better shape. I haven’t been as worn out after the workouts and I am feeling a little better.
I’ve been using my ShapelyGirl work out DVD and walking a lot. In fact, my sis came up last weekend to help me with our garage sale and we walked to town twice. After all, what better thing to do with your sis than to go shopping?
So the walking to town? It’s about 10 minutes one way. But on the way back, especially if I buy groceries it takes a little longer. Not to mention the exercise your arms get. Whew!
So I think my average exercise time would be about 20-40 minutes a day. Since I also clean houses several days a week, I could ad that in too. Cleaning can wear you out, but it’s not really a good cardio like walking or the exercise DVD.
The eating part? Well I could be doing better. Even though dieting is out of the question for me, eating healthy is a good thing. When I am home, it’s easy to grab a light snack, we have healthy snacks so that is good. But when I am out cleaning and baby-sitting it’s way to easy to fall into the wait until I am starving, pull up to McDonnalds and buy a sandwich. And because I am so starved I snarf down my food which leaves me still feeling hungry and slows down my metabolism.
Goals for next week:
Continue getting at least 20-30 minutes of exercise each day.
Eat something healthy every 2-3 hours.
Limit fast food and easy (box or frozen) meals to one a week.
Let’s see how it goes! Oh, and I’ve still not got on the scales. 🙂
