Weigh in Wednesday is back again, I am happy to report I have been keeping to my exercise goals and good eating. Thanks to pinterest and many new and healthy recipes I’ve collected its making it a lot easier. I don’t feel like baked chicken and veggies are my only choices. If you haven’t been the skinnytaste.com yet, go there NOW. Well, when you finish reading my post. But, she has tons of recipes, a lot of them are my favorites made over to be healthier options. So exciting!!
My goal for this week was 153 on Monday I was there. I’m hoping to see some change today, but it seems like the weight waits until the end of the week to come off now. 🙂 Which is fine because it keeps me working throughout the week.
Last week I am pretty sure I was active everyday except Saturday, I sat on my behind in class all day. And during lunch we went to Fitniche to be fitted for new shoes. If you haven’t done this I recommend it. First, I was wearing half size too small 😉 Already I can feel the difference. When I was working out with my too small generic sneaker my feet were sore the next day. I know it sounds funny but that’s the best way I have to explain it, when I walked it felt like the underside of my foot was sore. Having the correct shoes for your workout needs and feet I now know are really important!
Here’s my weigh in:
Starting Weight: 177
Last Week: 155
TODAY: 153 🙂
My goal for the upcoming Monday is 151! Wish me luck in sticking to my workouts! Today I’m going to do Yoga for 30minutes on my Biggest Loser game for Wii and then walk after dinner. This is a new “thing” Vince and I are going to try to do. Since we are eating dinner at 5-530 and he doesn’t have overtime this week we have plenty of time to go out for a walk before he leaves for work.
I know working out is probably not at the top of your priority list, it wasn’t always on the top of mine. I used to make excuses for myself why I didn’t have TIME to work out. But, be honest with yourself. Do you have time to watch 30minutes to an hour of TV? Do you have time to check emails or Facebook for 15-20minutes? Do you have time to read a good book for 30minutes? Then guess what you have TIME to workout. You just haven’t set it at high priority. I know you think that I am at home all day, not working so I have plenty of time to get in my work out in. I do nothing all day while you are at work.
I can tell you staying home is the hardest job I’ve ever had, there are no lunches or 15minute breaks. No other adult to talk to, or complain to about the company! But, honestly and truly I love every minute, don’t get me wrong there are times when I think “Oh WHY oh WHY did I not go back to work”.
I don’t know where the time goes! Playing and feeding and coloring and diapering and running the the potty take up all my time. I know it sounds crazy but when you finish with one and sit down the other needs something. In between I write to you, do school work and clean (although I’ve lost a lot of cleaning time to my new pinterest obsession) and fit in a workout during the 30minutes to an hour each day they are both sleeping at the same time! Is that what I want to be doing during my only break in the day. NO ABSOLUTELY NOT! I want to be eating girl scout cookies watching trashy TV! But, I also am so tired of making excuses for myself. I am ready to be fit and feel good.
I know many of you have work on top of two kids so you are working two jobs. But, I bet your kids would love to go for a quick walk after dinner instead of watching TV. I bet they would get a kick out of you doing planks in the living room, or jumping jacks during commercials. Little changes can add up to a lot over time. And with summer just around the corner wouldn’t you like to be even just a little more toned then you are now. I would!
Last summer when I was pregnant, I said I was going to be in shape enough to learn to surf. I’m on my way there! I am looking forward to time at the beach this year. Which is a feeling I haven’t had in a while!
