So how was your (hopefully) long weekend? Was it filled with lots of fun happenings? Filled with family, fire works, pool time? Filled with wonderful foods?And by filled I mean filled as in way too much food or ate so great I lost weight food? Well, as you have all come to know and love me – eating wonderfully healthy on a weekend to induce weight-loss was not in my cards. It was a great (very long) weekend but I woke up gaining on Saturday morning. Great food, but yeah. No excuses, but I quickly jumped back on the wagon and have been doing good since then. Gotta keep the force with me right? Totally punny, I know – and it keeps up through this whole post! Here is my New Years Resolutions – Week 27 Update.
My mom and I had a super-long talk on Saturday while out shopping – we pretty much talked about our weight, weight loss, loss not happening, eating, and different diets the entire time we were in the car. And we were gone all day – like from 10am-5:30ish. Long day. But she has recommitted (not a resolution, but recommittment) to her weight-loss plan and had a sit down with my dad to talk about the kind of support she needs. Very proud of her. It helped me recommit to my own resolution and come back with a win on losing my gain. I have been consistent since Saturday with my eating and thinking about what I plan to eat and what goes in my mouth. I have been consistently getting up the early a.m. to do the walking tape and doing some type of afternoon workout while my SIL is on vacation. I thought the afternoon would be the hardest since normally when I don’t workout with her I free-fall through food. But I have done good so I am proud of myself, and will keep the power going! Slow and steady wins the weight-loss race right? Aren’t weight-loss support systems awesome?
I got the PiYo in the mail but haven’t started it yet – mainly because my SIL isn’t here and I want to do it with her. I don’t want to wuss-out if it is too difficult (as body-weight workouts can be) and then not have confidence in myself again. Also, the SIL is super excited to try it so I want to do it with her. Funner anyway to do new workouts with someone else – the alone, at-home workouts get to be boring and I always convince myself to crap out early. So gonna wait until next Monday to start it. Just FYI if you do order – it’s a tad expensive. I won’t tell you the price – you can go look at all the package deals yourself, but I got the DVDS and Shakeology – and I really think I spent all that moolah on just the Shakeology. Why do they think that a protein powder needs to be that ridiculously expensive? Hmm, questions to ponder. As for the July Challenge – OMG! My thighs are burning – in a good way, but still. They burn. I am able to go right through the mini-workout without stopping still so that is good, but I know soon it will get more difficult and I will need to take a break after each move. Yowza did I choose a leg killer or what?
So – short and sweet again.
