Moovin' March - my first real post

Casey, over at The Ever-Changing Life... started

Grab My Button!

and I decided to join in.
The rules:
1. Say no to fast food.
2. Say yes to exercise (3x a week or more).
3. Grab a button, link up, and check in!

I am not the kind of person that counts calories and my scale is useless (not accurate) so my success will be seen by my belt and the point at which I have to put it away again since the last hole is still too wide.
As you can guess right now I am "able" to wear said belt.
Since I was kind of afk last week I didn't get to post last Monday.
But let me tell you what I did and ate (or rather not ate) since I decided to join.
I did get to do some workouts. Not as much as I wanted since I was visiting friends and when I got home on Thursday I got sick.
Monday I went to a Chinese all you can eat buffet and I agree this might not be in the spirit of Moovin' March but I had to celebrate (comfort myself about) the fact that I am even closer to 30. *ugh* There, I said it, I am getting old.
But at least I didn't eat much from Thursday to Sunday, that's something too, right? :)
I basically had crackers and soup and tea those days.
On Sunday I had some pasta.
I did a workout Thursday before I got sick and I did one on Sunday when I felt better.
Before I left to visit friends I did some physical labor, hauling furniture home.
It can only get better!

My goals for next week are: Doing the Shred every single day and I want to cook more fresh food including veggies that don't come from a can. So one day I will have fish and carrots and potatoes.

The above I wrote earlier today and the following is a possible change of my plan:
My cold got worse during the day and after I did the shred tonight I felt really crappy. In fact I still kind of do.
So I am not sure if I can keep up my plan for this week.
Maybe I have to pause til the cold is gone.
Today I coughed so hard, I burst a little blood vessel in my eye.

UPDATE: went to the Dr today (Tuesday). Dr put me on antibiotics and told me to not workout til next week.

  1. Sorry to hear you aren't feeling well. That always seems to happen to me when I want to start working out. Sounds like you have a great plan for next week when you feel better!
