Howdy everyone! Just wanted to pop in quick and let you know the fitness area of my life has been going.
18 days people, 18 days until we head to the beaches of Cancun, Mexico. I am being a savage and looking EVERYWHERE for new bathing suits. Since Victorias Secret no longer sells swimwear, I am having a super hard time. Haven’t really had that much luck but I still have a little time. *have faith*
While the last two weeks went pretty well with all of my goal areas, this last week was a little bit of a struggle.
Starting weight: 159.2
Last week’s weight: 158.2
Review of last week’s goals:
I am still going for the 80+oz per day of water – I have been keeping up with this pretty well again. I feel a lot better with more water so that is my motivating factor here. It also helps with any bloating or feeling weird after eating certain (carby) foods. I was doing well with water until about Monday. I didn’t get as much water down as I wanted but also started feeling sick Monday night. So yesterday (Tuesday) I didn’t drink as much as I wanted to, even though I should have. I layed around all day to try and give my body some rest. I also got some more vitamins (since I was out) and some Vitamin B12. Both seemed to help me feel a little more like myself.
Eating whole foods with as little of processed food as possible – This I did pretty well on. Not 100% but I would say that it was about 70% which is way more than it was before. I have really been watching my portions as well. My motto “just because no one saw you eat it, doesn’t mean that it doesn’t count”. This is huge for me!
Keep up with the Erin Stern program. I was doing really well with this one until Monday. I was really killing it in the gym and eating well. Once I started feeling sick and under the weather, the last thing that I wanted to do was go to the gym. It could have helped but I find that when I workout when feeling under the weather, I end up getting more sick and/or a migraine. Better to be safe than sorry!
Get as close to 10,000 steps as possible – GAH this one was not met at all really! the last time I hit 10,000 steps was last Wednesday 🙁 Saturday I got over 7,000 steps which is pretty good! The rest of the days have just been sh*t. Especially since I was feeling under the weather.
This week’s goals:
Current weight: 157.2 – another pound you guys! I am really proud of this number since it has taken me a hot minute to actually keep this number and not go back up to the 159s. My next hopeful goal is to hit 156!
I am still going for the 80+oz per day of water – I am still committed to working on this! I am hoping to also keep it up in Mexico since there may be a
few lot of cocktails involved.
Eating whole foods with as little of processed food as possible – I am still working on this as well. Even though I was not feeling well, I went to Target yesterday and got a crap load of healthier food. I think I only got a couple of things from the middle isles. It’s a little easier to shop for healthier stuff when you see progress!
Keep up with the Erin Stern program – I plan on hopping back on this train tonight. I really like the program and the increased strength that comes with it. I will say that I have been slacking on the abs part but with the compound movements involved in the training, I know they are still being worked somewhat. It also depends on the Anytime gym that I go to since each one has different equipment.
Get as close to 10,000 steps as possible – I am still working on this one but am thinking about 7,000 is going to be more attainable. I am thinking of setting a little reminder every hour to get up and move. Just to keep my body moving and blood flowing.
Another goal (not fitness related): find some good swimsuits!
Any suggestions on where to find some good swimsuits??
