The Challenge Day 3

Detox Your Diet

Today was the day I was supposed to start the eating plan according to Body+Soul, but I started it on Monday, so I guess I just got a head start on that part. I really need to read more than just the day that I am on and actually read ahead. I will try to do that today, if not, I will do it tomorrow.

Get Moving

1/2 hour of exercising. Done. More reason to use my Wii Fit – I love that little board. It makes exercise fun!

Reflect

The reflection questions for today:
Q: Do you have an exercise routine? If not, what are your main obstacles?
A: I do have an exercise routine now. I may not always follow it, which makes it a little less of a routine, but it is a planned routine none-the-less. With the acquisition of a Wii Fit for Christmas, my main obstacle was hurdled and a routine was created. My routine is 30-45 minutes of exercise before lunch using my Wii Fit. It is fun. Time flies by using the Wii Fit and it gives me positive feedback. What more can I ask for?
Q: How do you feel when you exercise?
A: Good. Like I am getting energy even though I am expending it. The right exercise can energize me while the wrong exercise can drain me. It is all about finding the ones that work.
Q: How much time do you sit each day?
A: This varies tremendously from day to day. It depends on what my work is, what season it is, and where the work is that needs to be done. If it is an organizing job that is outside versus inside, paper versus items, or computer versus house/office make a huge difference in how much I sit – and then if it is a leisure activity it can be anything from scrapbooking to exercise. I do know that I can not be on my feet all day (my feet don’t like it). Q: What, if anything, would you like to change about your approach to exercise?
A: To have a positive approach and want to designate at least 30 minutes each day to exercise.

Other Findings

I don’t exactly know what is going on, but this evening my face started to get little raised bumps all over it. It is probably a reaction to the change in diet. I will see how long it lasts and if it does not go away once I go back to my normal healthy eating practices, I will have to look into it more.
