Another week down………more inches gone! 🙂 I am still not weighing although the urge today was stronger than usual. But that box is still sealed, just as I left it.
Here’s how the week went.
Nutrition: Well…….the good part, I am starting to recognize when I am eating and it’s not pretty. I eat or want to eat when the kids go to bed and before the Hubs gets home from work. I try to work out during that time to ignore the urges but I can’t say I was successful every time. But you know what? That is ok. I am learning and growing still and that is part of the process. Other good news? I am still eating breakfast everyday. This week I have one goal and it’s a nutrition goal. I’ll highlight it below.
Fitness: I’ve been a little slack, mainly because I was feeling sorry for myself for 2 weeks. But I have been doing Gruntstyle every day and getting in EA Active some days. I feel stronger most days, which is AWESOME! Squat jumps are still my nemesis though. One day I will conquer them. Gruntstyle is ending today and there hasn’t been mention of a new 2 week challenge (yet?). I am promising myself to be active at least 4 days a week – a walk, riding my bike, doing a grunt workout….something. But I am NOT going to beat myself up if life gets in the way. Also – I am researching going gluten free for a couple of weeks to see if I feel better. I already know I need to cut out lactose and eggs….why not add in gluten? 🙂 I want to do my research though and then plan. I am such a planner. lol
Mental: It’s been a tough 2 weeks. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate all of the Mamavation Sistas that has been there for me. I’ve had long conversations with Shannon, who is my Fit Friend. She has been a HUGE support to me. I’ve got a friend, Jodi, who is always my support. I am so lucky!!! I am done feeling sorry for myself though (see my previous post about being fed up). It doesn’t help me and brings everyone around me down too. So now is my time! I can do this….it might be tough some days and some days I will want to give up. But that is ok. I will work through it and get through it and I KNOW I am loved and supported. I am taking my life back!
In personal news, I am going to Maine!!!! Jodi is going through this process with me and I can’t wait to see her! And I can’t wait to see Maine – I’ve never been to the East coast. SO EXCITED!!!!! I am taking my kids with me. Life is about experiences and I can’t wait to share this one with my babies.
So…..my goals for this week.
- My only goal this week is to watch what I eat and journal every. single. bite!
If I can do that, I will be beyond thrilled!
I would like to continue to drink all of my water and get my exercise in. But nutirition is where I am lacking and that is what I am going to concentrate on this week.
I hope you all have an awesome week!!!!
DUH!!!!!!!!!!! I forgot to tell you guys the best news!!!
Even though it has been a tough 2 weeks, I have lost inches!!! A total of 2 inches lost (although I did gain one). Since 9/1/11, I’ve lost a total of 14 inches!!!! You can see my progress on the tab “Weight Loss Stats” above.
Woo hoo – go me!
