Weight Training (4 days)
Cardio Training (5 days)
Healthy Weight Loss (-5 Pounds) Too much for one week, but things will slow down next week. Off to a great start.
(I am not being compensated in any way for doing this program . The only thing being compensated will be my rear end!)
I have to say that I learned a lot this week about myself and my family. I learned that no matter how prepared you are - things are going to come up. You have to be able to deal with the challenges, and accept the consequences of your choices. I learned that in order to be successful at any healthy eating journey you HAVE to focus on YOU!
Let me explain (THIS SECTION MAY CAUSE DAMAGE TO YOUR ADULT EARS)
- Dishes, dishes everywhere - Do I do the dishes, or go workout? Well, this is my response for the week. . . . SCREW the dishes! It's 8:00 at night and I haven't worked out - now if I want to be successful at changing things I need to say NO to something. So, yup the dishes are going to have to wait.
- Reading time with kids - Well, again it's late at night - I'm pooped and I have spent all day with the children entertaining them. I don't have to feel guilty for not reading tonight so again - SCREW the reading! I'm off to workout.
Challenges - Brian made some yummy huckleberry apple pie. Freak, how can you pass this up? Well, one bite won't hurt.
Positives about Living the Life
Even though the first few days I wanted to just scream for a chocolate bar it ended up being alright. I felt prepared with what I was going to eat and when I was going to eat it. I never felt hungry! I was eating all the time (right proportions, right combinations). Well, one week down and a lifetime to be healthy! Can't wait.
