I started off this past Monday on an operation to get fit and healthy. I’m just so tired all the time and I have no energy. I know it’s because of my terrible eating habits and lack of exercise. I have 3 little monkeys to take care of (4 if you count the hubby), a full time job, and college courses to get through, so having no energy just isn’t cutting it for me.
I started the week off strong doing PiYo Monday AM and walking in the PM. The PiYo (hard core on the floor-yep!) really aggravated my bowling injury. And by bowling injury, I mean the bruise on my hip and sore shoulder that I lodged into my lungs when I fell at the bowling alley on Father’s Day. Graceful, I am not!! So, I had to take it easy the rest of the week. I scaled back to walking in the afternoons and doing ab exercises and lunges. After another visit to the chiropractor, my shoulder is much better and I can do push ups again without wanting to cry.
I did ok with my eating, too. Stayed away from Little Debbie cakes and pop tarts- now that’s progress! I had a protein shake every morning and grilled chicken and veggies for lunch. Dinner was whatever we were all having, but I made sure it wasn’t too bad or that I didn’t completely hog out. I even had a salad when we went out with friends Friday night and did not order the chocolate cake that LOVE to get at the club. I do feel better already and I slept good this week. I am also less bloated. I did not weigh or check my measurements because I am trying to focus on my overall health, not my waistline.
Goals for this week- I hope to keep making progress and stay away from sweets and Diet Coke. I started Plexus yesterday so I am waiting to see how that works out. I am also checking in with a friends facebook page where she gives encouragement and daily exercises. (If you would like to know more about that, let me know. She is a great motivator!) It helps to have some accountability. Let’s hope I can keep it up! Feel free to share some tips or tricks you all use to stay motivated.
