Well today was the first day of my new lifestyle. It was the hardest day, but I also learned a lot today. I went grocery shopping picked up some things I needed: cheerios, bananas, apples, lettuce, cucumbers, carrots. I thought I was set, but I was starving after my cheerios and bananas breakfast and my brown rice and carrots lunch. I visited my boyfriend and learned from his mom that there is so much more I can eat. My goal is to stay away from sugar and flour. That I can do. I need carbs in my diet to keep my eneergy up for working out, etc. Joes mom really opened my eyes and made this seem a lot easier.
I was so proud of myself today for the way I ate, and lookd at labels. It was a good start. I was evern proud of myself because I went to my first exercise class and I LOVED IT!!! The booty kickin step class at blast was amazing. It was the right kind of difficult and it really made me sweat, something that I had just told my boyfriend I hadnt really been doing when at the gym. I left the class satisfied with my workout and ready to start the day. It wasnt boring, and I had so much fun. I cannot wait to go back on Wednesday morning. Tomorrow night I decided to go to the abs class. I want to try as many classes as I can to see how they are, and to pick the ones I really enjoy.
I did notice there is somethin I need to work on. I need to realize I cannot starve myself. I need to eat, just because I am eating healthy doesnt mean that I have to starve myself. This is how I thought healthy lifestyles to be. My boyfriend has been an amazing support system so far, and he really knows what to say to make me feel better.
Overall, I had a good first day and I think I can do this. I know this is going to be hard, but I think I am going to do it. I may slip up, I may fall off, but I will always get back up.
