It’s been two solid weeks of this new get-fit lifestyle and I have to admit that I like it. I feel fantastic. A little more energy, sleeping a little better. And while no one is going to walk up to me and tell me it looks like I’ve lost weight, I like to think I can feel a difference.
This week and next week are going to be big tests. I’m traveling today through Wednesday, LA for the Biggest Loser finale and then to Kansas City and all of next week in New York. Plenty of temptations all along the way that are easy to ignore in the comfort of home, but I think I can do it. I know this because toning up and being fit isn’t a phase- it’s a standard I’m setting for myself.
Does this mean I won’t drink? No. Will I have as much as I usually would? Definitely not. Will I have dessert? Sure- but a few bites to quench my sweet tooth and know that I don’t need to finish the entire thing. Instead of sitting during a two-hour layover I’ll walk around the terminal. Surely that and lugging two very heavy pieces of luggage count as exercise.
I’m not of the school of thought that that thinks it’s all or nothing. I fully believe the school of thought “all things in moderation.”
Flying today was a good experience. I was nervous as I’ve always hit the quickest fast-food burger in between flights. Today, I packed some Kashi granola bars for fighting off the munchies and I made my way to the Au Bon Pain in the DFW terminal. It was light, fresh and delicious.
I won’t get to meet the trainer on our regularly scheduled days this week. Will have to pull a Saturday morning to get it all in. I plan on getting up in the morning to hit the hotel gym as well.
With that said- I’m so excited to report that I’ve lost five total pounds, another two pounds last week. That’s a bag of sugar!
Don’t forget, you can follow along with my progress during the week, as well as all the DietsInReview updates at Twitter.
