thirteen early weekday mornings have passed since melissa and i began our work-outs together as goal buddies, and i am happy to report that i have gone all thirteen days. that's every workday morning for two and a half weeks, folks. i've quite surprised myself. not only that, but i have continued to keep track of which exercises i am doing — both strength training and cardio — and the foods i am eating. thank goodness for sparkpeople!
the combination of my new work-out regimen and david's and my new meal schedule has brought about some changes in me.
1- i have a new bed time (10 p.m.) and, with the exception of last night, when i got home from choir at 9:50 and was wired, i have stuck to it.
2- waking up at 5:10 has only gotten easier.
3- i have more energy all day long.
4- the days when melissa can't join me don't make me want to stay home (no offense, friend!).
5- i am more productive and am doing a better job at keeping track of daily life.
as far as my weight loss is concerned, i haven't seen much change in poundage. yet. but i have seen changes in the shape of my body. i showed david my tricep the other night and said, "look! i have new muscles!" and i do.
the next couple of weeks will be a true test of my devotion, as melissa may only be able to go with me one or two days next week and not at all the following week. let's hope i can hold steady then as well as i have been so far!
happy (quality) friday, everyone!
