Booyah! Mama is back on track. Maybe it’s because I just barely scraped by after falling off the wagon last week. Or, maybe it’s because I was so busy running around and co-hosting our sons 1st birthday party this past weekend…whatever the case, I made my goal and weighed in Monday morning at 151.0! Yes!
Before I jump into this week’s goals, I will update you on my progress with the 30 days to flat abs app.
Remeber that? Yeah…That didn’t happen.
It was 3 pages of workouts long. As excited as I was to try it out, it just wasn’t in the cards for me. I’m not going ti lie, I never even did one workout. I didn’t have enough time, and by the time I had time, I was too exhausted. In short. The app seemed great but wasn’t for me or my husband. He has been keeping up with his daily gym workouts instead. I, on the other hand, have pretty much been doing what I can when I can. I do a few crunches here and there, but mostly lay in bed a few extra minutes before going to bed and before getting up, and squeeze and hold my abs really tight. I know how lazy this sounds, but it has been working. Blowing up inflatable kids toys is also a great ab workout. Seriously! Like I said, I get in what I can, when I can. This is also in addition to our 2-mile uphill family walks a couple times a week and on the weekends. My husband and I alternate pushing the stroller and carrying 1 of the 3 children in the carrier. Whoever isn’t pushing the stroller, also pulls our dog along.
The majority of my weight loss is pretty much what I do and do not eat. That being said, let’s jump into this week’s goals.
Mind: Mentally! I am back in the game.
My mind gave into my body last week, allowing my body some much-needed junk food. Now, I am back on track focused on my goal. I can do this! Still loving my body at every stage. Definitely loving my body at this stage.
Body: My body is back in the game. She got the junk she wanted, she enjoyed it at the moment, regretted it after, and is ready to be a team player once again.
I am able to see the difference when I look in the mirror. I am able to wear almost every pair of jeans, my tummy is shrinking, and now I’m working on my thighs. I don’t have a trainer, but I’ve got self-motivation, and that is proving to be just as great because, let’s be honest, I don’t have time to go see a trainer. I’m pulling out the high heels because I’ve found that wearing high heels work wonders on my legs! Sticking with my 2lb a week goal. My goal for next Monday’s weigh-in is 149!
Woohoo! Dropping below 150 and entering the 140’s! We are getting ready to turn a corner folks and I’m celebrating every little success!
My soul is in a great place. My soul is pleased with how well my mind and body are in sync. It can once again focus on choosing joy and peace on a daily basis in this crazy world.
I’m taking it week by week and still loving my body at every stage.
