Beginning of Week 2 Check-In

Today is Day 2, Week 2 of my healthy life style change. IN order to give myself a little pat-on-the-back i purchased a FitBit Flex today. For those of you who haven’t heard of a FitBit I’ve taken the liberty of copying and pasting the companies description here (lol, tired):

Flex™ Wireless
Activity + Sleep Wristband

This slim, stylish device is with you all the time. During the day, it tracks steps, distance, and calories burned. At night, it tracks your sleep quality and wakes you silently in the morning. Just check out the lights to see how you stack up against your personal goal. It’s the motivation you need to get out and be more active.

The FitBit Does the Following activities:

    • STEPS TAKEN

    • DISTANCE TRAVELED

    • CALORIES BURNED

    • ACTIVE MINUTES

    • HOURS SLEPT

    • QUALITY OF SLEEP

I Have to say that I’m in love with idea of something helping me achieve my weight loss goals. I have activated and already started using it. One thing that I’ve noticed already today is it is exceptionally helpful in keeping track of my water intake. I Have to say that I’m one of those people who will carry a water bottle around with them and only finish half of it. This app/bracelet is keeping me aware of the fact that i have so many ounces to drink in a day (simple concept I know but helpful to me).

Now then, for my beginning of the week check-in, i have one word for you all…sore. I don’t think iv’e been this sore in gosh, i can’t even tell you how long. When i cough I swear I can feel every muscle in body. It’s painful and exciting. Last week, i downloaded the app Blogilates. It’s an exercise program run and promoted by a Youtube fitness guru, and i have to say i’m really enjoying her program .Instead of forcing myself to run every day, I’ve been following her beginner workout calendar,on average it’s a half hour out of your day of pure hard core workouts, and it’s funny. I know I might be pushing myself a tad to hard however, I’m excited that in this short amount of time I’m already noticing a difference in my self and in my body.

well ta-ta for now,

Kisses

Hello. My name is Victoria. Born and raised in New Mexico. I have experienced my fair share of houses. However, it is here, in this self-titled blog, that I have truly found my home. Here I document everything I love. (& that is a lot) I find life intoxicating. Everything from places to a good read (shoot-even bad reads) food, makeup, experiences…my life. I document here. In hopes of trapping the beauty of the world, I see around me. I have been told I see the world through rose-colored spectacles. & I intend to share it that way. Here I hope to discover, discarded and rediscover who I am, how I interact with the world, and who I inspire to be. I hope you find joy in my writing, and hopefully, you also will write something to me.
