How Long It Actually Takes To Get In Shape For Summer — Day 44

I had planned to sleep in this morning since I had a few hours time owed, but I woke up early anyway. I guess it’s become a habit now to get up at the break of dawn, either that or I’m just glad to have some time to myself-yesterday was ridiculously hectic.

I ran some errands after I got up and then went for a short walk. Once I returned home I got a sudden craving for something sweet, so I decided to cut my losses and eat one of the granola bars I had stocked in my work bag. I didn’t want to eat these if I didn’t have to, but my kids hadn’t eaten the candy bar I gave them yet, and I’m not exactly proud to say that I would’ve likely taken in back if I didn’t quell the craving then and there.

Had a great workout session this evening. In addition to doing cardio, I decided I was going to steadily increase how heavy I’m lifting and decrease rest time in between sets. I was absolutely exhausted by the end, but I’m sure that it was worth it. I want to do everything I can to reach my goal, and a few adjustments here and there should do the trick just fine.

Daily Image Year of Change Day 44 #YOC

I am starting to see results and have decided for my image and peace of mind to start tense slightly my muscles when taking the photo, this is not to look thinner but to see my body shape which slightly tensed muscles. I can notice my love handles have improved and this has motivated me to keep driving forwards.

In other news, one of my kids wanted McDonald’s again, but I had to say no this time. There’s absolutely no way I would be able to walk out of there without at least a small order of chips.
