Things have been going great. I started working out a week early. Last weekend I went to Callaway Gardens and walked for 4 miles. Last night I went hiking at Red Top Mountain for an hour after work. I’ve decided to become vegan. I was mostly vegetarian last week and since Sunday, I have been doing the vegan thing. I am feeling very encouraged it is amazing what a little exercise and clean eating will do for a person.
I signed up to do a beginners backpacking trip for the weekend of March 13 and 14. I know I need to push myself to get back out there, but honestly, I am scared. I am afraid I won’t be able to keep up with the group or I’ll be the weakest one. I keep thinking of reasons to back out, but I know I won’t because it’s now public information in my blog = ) I know what trail we are backpacking on it’s and 8.5 mile loop so the weekend before I am going to walk it so I know what to expect.
My biggest struggle is time. I work full time from 7 to 3:30 then I usually get home at 4:15. My baby is usually asleep by 8 or 8:30 so I don’t get to spend much time with her. I’ve been feeling guilty about coming home holding her for 10 or 15 minutes then working out for an hour (I’ve been lifting weights and doing extra cardio). When it’s nice out I put her in a stroller and we walk the neighborhood, but it’s almost never nice out. It makes me feel like a bad mom.
I like to end things on a positive note so here it is I have lost 5 pounds and I’ve gone down a pants size in just two weeks. I hope everyone else is doing well too!
