I hate walking on the treadmill. It's so boring. BUT!! I did something different. I walked for 4 min. then I did a "hill" at 6.0 incline for a minute. Then I walked again at 3.0 for 3 min. and repeated the cycle until my 35 min. were up. It was fun, and the time went by. Good sweaty workout. I am so happy that I signed for training. There are so many good tools on Kim's site to help keep me on track. I have food log, workout logs, a forum, direct email to Kim. There's tons of articles, exercise library, and a blog. I feel encouraged.
A fabulous thing happened today! My sister, who is WAY more overweight than me, (like 350lbs.) finally asked me for help. I bought her a copy of the Eat Clean diet by Tosca Reno along with the cookbook. I figured this was a good starting point for her. We made up some menus. I explained about cooking once or twice a week, and portioning out her food. She's also going to sign up at Curves. She's started walking around her neighborhood. I am so happy. We're gonna keep each other accountable. My sis is the most beautiful girl. She's tall, lt brown hair and blue eyes. She has spent the last 15-20 years morbidly obese--had a drug problem (which she conquered several years ago). I'm so happy that she wants to change her life and body. I knew she would eventually come to this point--it had to be HER idea.
I am a happy girl :)
