Back to our regularly scheduled programming 🙂 For those of you not affiliated with Mamavation, I may have seemed MIA lately but I assure you I’ve just been SUPER busy finishing up the Mamavation campaign. You can see weekly blog posts and videos here.
As for this week – I’d LOVE to report a loss this week.
but…. I think I did too much celebrating Friday and Saturday to be able to do that. that’s the only explanation I have for this:
No change… except that I did FINALLY get around to redoing my pedicure 🙂
I am still very cautious about portion sizes, but we went out to dinner with my parents to celebrate my oldest’s ALMOST birthday. He turns 11 on Wednesday and we decided to do dinner, presents and cake Friday instead. He got some special paints he needed for the model helicopter he’s building with my dad, so this way they could work on it this weekend. It’s really heartwarming to see him and dad working together 🙂
Then, Saturday took a CRAZY long walk – just over 9 miles – and I’m SURE there was some elevation changes there too – in my fantastic Earth footwear so every step was like walking UPHILL! it was fantastic! All told, I had over 25,000 steps according to my Omron Go Smart pedometer. I was soooooooo tired that I ended up doing something I haven’t done in months… I ordered pizza.
I was so tired I went to my local Papa Murphys and bought a pizza to pop in the oven for the boys and I. Hubs was over at his moms… We ate the pizza and it was good… but not as good as I remembered it being.
I know that the 1 slice of pizza I ate didn’t negate all of my hard work this past week, so I’m sure it’s water retention. I’m thinking my sodium these last few days was too high.
The good news is that I didn’t feel good all day today. Not sick, but just lacking serious energy. I NEVER feel this way when I eat whole, real food, so it’s good that I remembered how sluggish I feel when filling my body with junk and I’m back on the wagon full force to keep eating healthy!
This coming week I’m also going to experiment with some new fitness ‘routines.’ I’ve got my new EAS Active2 to set up (was supposed to do that today… guess what DIDN’T happen. Plus I’ve got Yoga Booty Ballet I want to check out and a couple other Dance based workouts. If you haven’t figured it out yet, i LOVE to dance. Seriously. LOVE IT! (I feel I should clarify that loving it doesn’t mean I’m great at it!)
So here are my goals for this week:
- – continue to drink a min of 96 oz of water a day
- – Get a green on my Gruve at least 6/7 days
- – continue my pedometer goal of 12,000 steps a day
- – cardio 3 days this week
- – Strength Training 2 days this week
I know that if I keep doing what I know I need to do, the weight will follow! What goals do you have?
