Another weigh-in today...only lost .4, but that's to be expected. The book tells you that by Phase 3, you won't lose a lot since you're adding in some carbs. I've also been doing P90X with Ted, so I could be building some muscle. In any case, I didn't GAIN anything. And I'm feeling pretty good; except for the achiness.
I was talking with some co-workers today, and we were considering doing the 3-mile Race for the Cure in May. I happen to be leaving for vacation the day of the race, but I have agreed to particiapte in the training, even if I can't be in the race. Luckily, you have the option of walking or running, in ehich case, I would SO be walking! I've never been a runner, and have some respiratory issues that might make it difficult. Nobody wants to be that person that passes out and has to have the ambulance come revive you. That's just embarrassing. But, if they'll have me, maybe I can train to walk the 3 miles.
Looks like our last day on Phase 3 is March 24. I think Ted's already got plans for a slice of pepperoni pizza that weekend...with a large salad, of course. And we'll still be exercising, so that slice will come right off in no time! I have to admit that I'm looking forward to that slice myself. But we're not going to go crazy. Forcing yourself to have veggies and/or salad with every meal is touch, but I've definitely seen the results and benefits. So knowing that it's vital to keep that mindset is important.
Exercising is taking a lot of time away from our puppies, laundry, household duties, and for Ted, studying. We're trying to make up for those things in other ways like putting a load of clothes on in the morning so they're ready to hit the dryer in the evening (thank goodness my washer has a timer!), one of us working on dinner while the other one showers after workouts, once of us cooking while the other one does dishes, etc. It's tough, but we've always found that we get things done faster and more efficiently when we work together and do different tasks. I don't know how single folks do it, but only having to cook for 1 is harder than anything I've ever done!
How are you guys doing in the getting-it-all-done department?
