Here's the promised second Fitness Friday post. 

It's my official 3 week anniversary at the gym. I know that's not long, but for me it's crazy to think that I ever went to begin with. I talked about how I was always too intimidated to go to the gym in the past, but I really love the gym I go to, and I'm still going 5 days a week.

I'm doing 30 minutes of cardio and then weight training. Sometimes in the opposite order, but I do both every time. I'm typically at the gym for 45 minutes to 1.5 hours, depending on how much I can manage to do that day. I've really been trying to push myself.

Another thing I've been doing is *attempting* to clean up my diet.

This has been substantially more difficult for me, as I just can't figure out what to eat. Is that a problem for anyone else?
Like, I want to eat things that are good for you, but I can't think of things to eat.

I've been doing much better than before. I've cut out fast food at this point, which is hard for me considering how busy I am. I don't drink anything but water and the occasional tea. 

I don't eat candy, cake, anything like that. I try to eat as many vegetables as I can, and I eat lots of fruit like pears, strawberries, and bananas. I'm trying to stop eating red meat, so I've only been eating chicken, and I usually eat vegetables and rice with that. I eat yogurt sometimes and I eat granola bars. I also eat a protein bar after I work out. I don't have much variety in what I'm eating at the moment, so I'm looking for new things to try.

I've also considered becoming vegan. I'm not really sure how difficult that would be for me, so it's something I'm going to research a little more.

I don't have a goal weight anymore. I have an idea of the weight I'd like to be around, but I'm not sure how much I'll weigh. It's more of a goal size that I have, rather than a weight. 

As of right now, I'm not willing to share how much I weigh, or any before pictures. I'm not that brave, sorry!

I will say that for the last two weeks, I've only lost around 2 pounds. I do know that you shouldn't judge your progress by what a scale says, and I can see that I've lost some weight. I've made no drastic changes yet to the way I look, but I'm definitely improving and I'm going to stick with it!

So, that's it for this week's Fitness Friday!
I'll update you again during week #5!
