So for the month of October (and heck why wait that long, I'm starting today) I'm going to start making better choices to get me closer to my ultimate goal weight and make sure that the 1st month of being 25 years old is a step toward something positive.
I made my first step this morning, despite the cold air that quenched my lungs as I opened the front door to walk my daughter to the bus stop, I made sure to have my good runners on and after the bus left I took off in the opposite direction of home and jogged/walked a 5km. It's the first outdoor 5km I've done in far too long and it felt great! I arrived home with tons of energy to spare so popped my p90x ab ripper X dvd into the player and got it done.
Like I've said in a previous post, once I get started working out, I turn into kind of a workout junkie. I love to workout, I'm just terrible at pairing it with healthy eating, which is why it took me 2 years to lose 70lbs. I still consider it an incredible accomplishment, but sometimes lose track of why I started in the first place and what my ultimate goal was--a healthier overall life. So over the next month I'm going to be dedicating some of my blog posts to my new healthier habits. One thing I'm going to need is some healthier go-to snacks and after workout eats. So stay tuned and today I'll be posting some of my pinterest finds for those!
Happy Thursday everyone, have a great one :)
The first step is always the hardest to take, but once you take it you'll never regret it :)
