This... wasn't a great week for exercising. There's really no good reason for that, so I won't try to come up with one. Basically? We just both felt really unmotivated to get on that treadmill. One thing I'm learning about myself during all of this is that for me? Routine is absolutely essential. As soon as I left a few days go by without working out, all my motivation completely drains away and something as simple as jumping on the treadmill for 25 minutes seems like an impossible task. My goal for next week is not to let two days in a row pass without getting in a workout.
The good news is that I did continue to make reasonably healthy food choices this week. I ate plenty of fruits and vegetables and we picked up a couple boxes of popsicles instead of pints of ice cream. I can't even tell you the last time I ate my beloved Cape Cod potato chips.
Given that we barely exercised, (and I say barely because although we didn't hit the treadmill we DID go for several walks and I did do some crunches) I'd say we did pretty well this week.
Kim: 162.5 (no change)
Nick: 205.5 (no change)
Next week I would really like to get down to an even 161. I'm going to try my hardest to get on the treadmill at least every other day, and to do my crunches every day. If I manage that, next week I'll add in some other workouts as well.
How do you maintain your workout routine? Does a day or two off leave you feeling refreshed or just lazy?
