Starting Anew with Healthy Habits

Happy Hump Day!  So far, work has been going well.  Everyone is really nice and open to help me out as I learn the software and everything else.  It has been a lot of information but I am still enjoying it anyway.  So far so good!

I figured before I started that I should just jump in with healthy habits right away.  Sunday, Rob and I managed to do some meal prep despite the power being out.  That made it super easy to eat healthy Monday and Tuesday.

2016-04-04 07.35.24Breakfast:  3 eggs with veggies and cheese.  Slice of raisin bread with butter.  Tea with cream and stevia.

2016-04-05 11.25.17
Lunch:  Cobb Salad (Mixed greens, chicken, 1 egg, 1/4 avocado, tomatoes, bacon, avocado ranch dressing)

Monday night, we got burritos for dinner which wasn’t low calorie but oh so delicious.  Tuesday was fine though as I just had some leftover sausage and steamed broccoli with cottage cheese and strawberries for dessert.

2016-04-04 17.57.41Monday, I also made sure to do a DVD right when I got home before I could think about it.  It was easy because Rob wasn’t home so I didn’t feel the draw of the couch.  I did Body Beast Cardio and loved it!  I like that he goes hard for about a minute and a half and then gives you complete rest time after.  I feel more refreshed after his workouts than exhausted.

Tuesday, I chose Les Mills Body Combat but I just wasn’t feeling it and only made it 12 minutes into the DVD.  I think I was just tired from a long day and getting hungry for dinner.

I was hoping to get some runs in this week but it got very cold yesterday.  I’m hoping that it doesn’t last too long and I can get back to C25K.  In the meantime, I’ll keep doing various DVDs.

I almost forgot!  This job, while a desk job, has had a lot of walking so far since the offices are on a different floor than the computer lab.  Tuesday, I checked my FitBit when I left work and it was already at 5,000 steps.  That is great for not even trying!

Have a great day everyone!

How do you get in extra steps each day?

I am thinking about using a smaller water bottle so I have to get up to fill it more often.  I’ll wait until after I’m done training/shadowing though and my schedule is my own.
