My hard work is paying off and now I’m going to share my small victory with you. So far since I’ve started my bootcamp, I’ve lost 3.5 pounds. This is a small milestone but I know its just the first of many more to come. How did I do it? Simply by changing my habits. I’ve made it my business to eat healthier foods and work out each day for 30 minutes.
I’ll be the first to admit, this was NOT easy for me. Removing the fried foods, greasy chips, and candy was like taking a limb from me. Instead I opted for baked or steamed foods, crisp fruits, and nuts (preferably almonds). I’ve also learn about portion control which has helped me with another problem, overeating. Less is so much more! Lastly, I’ve added salads to my meals and drinking lots of water.
As for the exercise, I’m still on my Leslie Sansone’s Walk Away the Pounds tape. To get an extra benefit, I’ve added 2 pound hand weights to my workouts. This has helped me to strengthen my arms as I go along. I also have a buddy, (good look 1cent) which has made it actually fun to exercise. One more lesson to share which is to park your car and try walking to some of your destinations. This has made a world of difference to me with building my endurance.
