Hi Everyone. Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend. There’s still time to enter the raffle to win $25 to REI. What do you have to lose?
Now for this week’s workout diary!
Every time I worked out last week
Monday: I took a walk in Jamaica State Park in Vermont with the ski crew. The trail was a sheet of ice. The first thing I thought when got out of the car was: “Oh, here is where I sprain my ankle.” But luckily no such accident occurred.
Wednesday: Nothing *shrug*
Thursday: Barry’s Bootcamp (It was abs day!)
Friday: November Project in Columbus Circle+ 45-minute class at Lyons Den Power Yoga
Saturday: I didn’t workout, but I did exercise my First Amendment right by joining the Women’s March in NYC with my mom, sister, Matt, his mom and a bunch of her friends. It was positive and motivating.
Sunday: I ran 4.5 miles… to brunch at East Pole (they have delicious green juice and make the best poached eggs)
This week, I wanted to share two great reads from other people’s blogs that made me think. These are two new-to me bloggers that produce smart, and well researched content.
Her thesis is this: Losing weight is not just getting in the habit of putting healthy food in your mouth. Successful weight loss depends the collection of many habits. It’s making a habit of going to the grocery story. It’s making a habit of cooking dinner at home. It’s making a habit of working out. It’s making the habit of waking up early so you have time to work out. It’s making a habit of bringing healthy snacks to work. It’s making a habit of carrying a water bottle around and the habit of drinking a lot of water. It takes a while to acquire one habit. Even longer to develop many habits. So if you’re seeking long substantial change, its right take longer than you think.
