Since revamping our schedule, I’m happy to report that I’ve had success in going to bed earlier and waking up somewhere between 4:30-5:00am. This has allowed me time to shower, get myself ready, read my Bible, and exercise!
Getting into an exercise routine has been a challenge for me for a long time. I’ve tried scheduling it for the evenings, but when the time comes….there’s always something else that needs to be done or I just plain forget. By scheduling in it in the morning before all the kids are up, there is no forgetting and no excuses. It’s just me, and the “The Biggest Loser: Power Sculpt” DVD. Ruben does join me some mornings, and we are going to try to do it together every morning once we get another set of weights. Your workout just goes a little farther when you are using two weights instead of one each.
I’ll probably check out prices at Wal-Mart later this week.
Now to get my diet in check. I mentioned a few weeks ago that I had started eating a bigger, yet healthier breakfast (still a lot of calories for breakfast, though) in an effort to lose weight. It’s not working.
Instead, I’m going to go back to eating less calories, more protein, more vegetables, and one cup of coffee per day. I’m only allowing myself one cup of coffee until I finish up all of my instant coffee (don’t want it to go to waste…..). I’ve got a small jar left and some in packets. After that, it’s “see ya” to coffee except for maybe a once a week homemade frappe on the weekend.
I’ll let you know how this works for me!
Have you been able to get into an exercise routine or is there a diet you’ve had success with?
