Happy Monday! How did you do with your goals last week?
I was able to complete one of my goals. I did 5 days of 45 minutes on the elliptical. However, I did go over my calories on Saturday due to the shockingly high calorie content of a soft pretzel. Oh well. I was rewarded in my efforts with a 3.5 lb loss. Woot woot!
Except for the pretzel issue, I stayed on track and I had a pretty active weekend.
Thank you for all of your suggestion on how to work more strength training into my routines. I've decided to try a kettlebell workout. I did quite a bit of research on them and they look like something I could enjoy. I purchased a kettlebell this weekend and this morning I did my first workout. It wasn't too hard but I have a feeling that I'll definately feel it tomorrow.
This weekend I decided to do a little shopping and wandered into a Forever 21. Now I've never shopped there before because of my size and when they came out with thier "extended sizes" last year, I felt like it was a HUGE slap in the face to the entire plus size community. Their extended sizes barely cover what other stores carry as standard sizes. I know when I wandered into the store...even though I could find things in my size, I didn't want to buy them. Why would I want to buy a 3X? Rant over.
This week my goals are to do 4 sessions on the elliptical that are at least 45 minutes, to workout with my Kettlebell 3 times (One down, Check!) and to stay on track with my eating. Also....I'd like to wear heels at least once this week to work.
