For about 2 minutes after my weigh in I was a little disappointed that I didn't lose the whole 2.6 pounds I gained during vacation week, but then I thought positively about the week. I was craving chocolate, sweets and salt like nobody's business and I still lost 2 pounds, and that is an accomplishment in itself. Last month during this same week, I gained, so I should be hugely proud of my loss instead of disappointed. I made good choices, but I still lived life and that is the most important thing I have to learn!
My goal is 2 pounds again this week, or even better 2.1 pounds. I can't wait to see a 18 instead of a 19! I am so close to saying goodbye to the one, nines forever!
Not only did I stay away from a lot of my cravings this week, but I also got in exercise! This fitness challenge with The Bohemian Housewife has really worked to keep exercise on my brain! A friend also challenged me to start PiYo with her, so we started on the same day and have kept each other accountable! So let's take a look at the plan and see how I did!
Plan - How did I do?
Monday - T25 or Piyo - T25 Speed 1.0
Tuesday - Walk 50 minutes - PiYo lower body
Wednesday - T25 or Piyo - PiYo upper body
Thursday - Family Walk after Dinner - none
Friday - T25, Piyo or Walk - none
Saturday - T25, Piyo or Walk - PiYo Sweat
Sunday - Family Walk after Dinner - 30 minute walk and PiYo lower and upper body
Wow! Is anyone else as impressed as I am, by how much I exercised this week?? Kidding, I realize it isn't an extreme amount, but for me, it is huge!
Thursday I didn't feel great, either allergies or a cold, not sure which but I was tired and I decided I would use my Friday rest day on Thursday instead. Then Friday came around and it was busy and the workout never happened. On Saturday, I did Thursdays workout, so yesterday I doubled up Saturday and Sundays workout to catch up on all the PiYo workouts for the week. Plus, I walked with my sister in law while the big kids were in Sunday school. My body is sore, but it feels great!
What is my plan this week?
Monday - PiYo Sweat
Tuesday - PiYo Lower Body and a family walk
Wednesday - PiYo Core
Thursday - PiYo Upper Body and a family walk
Friday - Rest or Walk
Saturday - PiYo Sweat
Sunday PiYo Core
My plan is to keep up with the PiYo workouts this week, as my friend and I have challenged each other to the 8 week PiYo schedule, but I also want to get outside and walk. It is going to reach 70 degrees this week and I can't wait to enjoy it!
Now you know my exercise plan, what am I eating this week??
Linking up my meal plan with the Laura's and Jill!
That's all for today! Come back tomorrow for Show and Tell Tuesday!
