So, this past week had it’s share of ups and downs. Logan is STILL recovering from that dang stomach bug, which means a 5am wake up call for mama every morning. I got in 6 days of workouts, but my eating wasn’t super great. When I write down exactly what I’m eating in my Nutrisystem book, I stay on track. I’m going to make it my goal this week to be good about keeping up with my food log.
On Wednesday, the dreaded weigh in day at my mama bootcamp, I only lost a measly pound. BUT my clothes fit better, I have more energy and I feel so much stronger. The stupid scale plays games with my head, hence the binge eating. I feel like I’m working my butt off, but the scale isn’t reflecting that. And I know, I know…muscle weighs more than fat and blah, blah, blah. I know all of this, but I still want to see the scale move. My instructor reminded me that I just recovered from the stomach flu and my body is probably adjusting to eating again. We’ll see what the scale says in a couple days. I’m trying to remind myself that my ultimate goal is a healthier lifestyle, which I’m accomplishing.
Speaking of goals, every week at bootcamp we come up with a new goal for ourselves. Last week, my goal was to drink 80 oz of water…per day. After the first few days, I got a little sick of plain water and needed to spice it up a bit. I found a recipe for “detox water” over at a sweet simple life and had to try it. It’s basically 1/2 cucumber, 12 mint leaves and 2 lemons added to 3 quarts of water. Let sit for 8 hours. I’ve been chugging this water like crazy, it is really good and a break from plain H20. I just made a new batch of it today. If you try it, be warned that you will be using the restroom every 2 seconds.
On Saturday, I get to cross of a huge goal of mine. I will be running my very first 5k! A month ago I would have been nervous, but this mama bootcamp has given me confidence in my body and it’s abilities. Heck, I ran 4 miles uphill carrying a 10 pound weight on Saturday. Bring on the 5k! My goal for this race is to just complete it. We won’t be timed, so no pressure there. I’m actually really looking forward to it. I’ll let you know how it goes!
How’s your week going? What are your fitness goals?
