Healthy You Challenge Check In. Check. I have decided to start referring to it during my updates at the Healthy Me Challenge 2009. Its meant to be a personal quest/challenge and I want to start thinking of it in those terms. So here is to a healthy me in 2009.
Anyway, I’m all checked in so I might as well tell you how I’ve been doing.
My eating has sucked. Suck, suck, suckage, suckity, sucked! I have been eating crap still and I know that its bad for me and I don’t want to eat it really, but I still have. I attribute this mostly to the fact that I am terrible at eating when and what my brothers eat. When I am alone or at a restaurant or with friends I make pretty good choices 94.3% of the time. But when I am chilling at home and my brothers are around I tend to eat whatever they eat. This is a BAD thing considering their main food groups are pizza, sweets, and fast food.
However, I am getting back on track with exercise. Woohoo! I love to exercise and be active so I’m glad I am almost back to my normal workout schedule. The holidays through me off with the gym being closed and all my family being home. I wish I belonged to a 24 hour gym because you better believe I would have gone to workout at 1 am after everyone went to sleep. Thats what I would do it college and if I wasn’t a member of a gym with ‘normal’ hours I would still do it. Anyway, I had a really good workout yesterday with 30 minutes of elliptical goodness and an upper body workout. I probably could have and should have amped up the weights part of the workout. I really have nada upper body strength. But it was still a good workout. And tonight I will workout again and do yoga. Or at least attempt to do yoga. Its my first time so I will let you know how that goes.
Hope everyone else is doing great and being healthy in the new year!
