So, the first few days sucked. The whole counting thing was alike.... what that isn't good. I'm starting to adjust. I still am in the beginning i can tell. I saw this red velvet cake today and it looked so good. I was moist and had cream cheese frosting and was just made that morning, mere hours before i had gotten into work and was like "what will we be having for dinner today." My stomach made it's first peep in along time in the form of a little growl that you would expect from a kitten. I couldn't resist it. So, i had two pieces. But my swimming venture that afternoon before work had burned off so many calories that it didn't do much to my caloric intake. I was so happy on friday tho. One week after weigh myself and committing to this calorie counting diet and i saw two pounds disappear. I cannot say that they were not hard to get ride of, but it seemed too easy. I was just so happy. And my fiance saw the same results. I am one step closer to getting fit and healthy. I even looked up, on a website called reddit, a getting fit page and got some more motivation and advice on how to lose the most fat and keep the muscle that i want. I think next friday, I am slowly start to try to get a daily morning exercise route worked in to my schedule. Wish me luck.
So, lately my fiance has been bothering me to workout/exercise with him because he wants to lose weight and knows I do to. After talking with me for I don't know how long by just asking do you want to go on a walk or go biking or something like that, he finally said he wants to start changing his diet and start exercising and would love it if I would be his partner. This was a few days ago. I thought about it at work, my work of taking care of those who cannot take care of themselves makes it hard to commit to a structured workout schedule like I know my fiance would like. I finally decided that if I want to start getting enshape, I might as well start now, figuring that it wouldn't be as hard to do during school if I started now. I went all out when he asked, "So you are going to workout with me?" I made up a contract and everything with five simple rules. No pop, more water; set up an account on fitnesspal; start exercising with a goal of 150 minutes a week; start stength training twice a week again; and no more junk food. I don't know how I will do with my crazy work schedule and my love of chocolate, but at least it is a start.
