Yes, I'm tooting my own horn today. I am so proud of my accomplishments this week, I did the 30DS workout every day but one this past week. I made it to yoga class 4 out of the last 7 days AND I lost 2 pounds and 1% of body fat this week!
I have to say my biggest challenge was eating. The nutrionist told me I am allergic to casien, a protein found in milk and eggs. After spending an hour in stop&shop I have to tell you, milk and eggs are in EVERYTHING!
But I am learning, the nutrionist has given me alot of ideas so I know I can handle this too.
Another thing to toot my horn about today, I quit smoking again. So far so good but its only been a few hours. I know that I can make this quit successful.
Seventy percent of success in life is showing up. ~Woody Allen
Today was the first day of my 30 day challenge and 20 pounds in 10 weeks weight lose plan.
Even though I forgot to set my alarm clock this morning , I managed to get up and complete day one of the Jillian Michael's 30 day shred.
I ate good, low carbs high protein!!
I am really motivated to complete these goals, along with quitting smoking on the 6th.
After meeting with my nutrionist on Saturday and learning that I am allergic to Casein ( a protein found in dairy products) I am so happy to finally have an answer to the digestive problems I've been having for the past 2 years.
Hopefully with the new nutrition plan, no smoking and increased exercise plan I will be feeling great in no time!
It is never too late to be who you might have been. ~George Eliot
As long as there is breath in your lungs and life in your body there is always a chance for changing for the better.
Make the most of every day, not only physically but mentally. Make someone else smile, it does wonders for them and you.
Be the best you possible today.
We have produced a world of contented bodies and discontented minds. ~Adam Clayton Powell
I ran across this quote today and it made me stop and think. What does it really mean to be content, are we so busy with satisfying the body that we are starving our minds?
So today I focused on gaining more knowledge and being more aware of things around me.
It was a beautiful late summer day where I live so I spent the afternoon outside and caught this butterfly doing natures work.
Phew! So happy this week is over and for the first time in a long while I don't have to do any "catch up" work on the weekend!
The week did kind of get away from me though as far as working out went, I started off strong but kind of faded as the week went on. The motivation is still there but finding the time was an issue. Better time management is in order.
The goal to quit smoking is still set for Sept 6th, I will be talking in depth with my nutritionist about it tomorrow to ensure that I won't put on another 15 pounds like I did last time.
Goals for this weekend is to not stray too far from the diet plan, go to yoga class and continue doing the 30 day shred workouts. WOA! That last one is tough but soooo worth it
Hope all of my wonderful have a great weekend!
