I feel a lot of a healthy lifestyle is down to momentum. Getting it going and then KEEPING it going. Often, it's the momentum i struggle with.
I have to challenge myself with momentum. Push that heavy ball and get it rolling, and then the challenge is to KEEP it rolling. I've done it before - i bloody know i can do it.
THEN PROVE IT, STEPH!!!
Today went well, quickfired during my day, ate well, and BodyRocked with skipping to finish. Yay! Rollin' rollin' rollin', keep those doggies rollin'!

I slacked. Big time. WHYYYYY???
My Sunday was frickin BRILLIANT. It couldn't have been any better. Monday Tuesday? Couldn't have been WORSE!! I hate this so much because i progress so far and eat major clean and push my body hard and it is in the zone to be changing and toning up and changing for the better.... to what i want to be and then BAM... i go and REVERSE the whole flipping process.
So i'm just gonna type what i've done.
Monday - no exercise. No Quickfiring either. Breakfast and lunch - great. I shopped Monday night and decided to have a little treat - a pizza. I should have exercised before dinner though, to atleast have a little defence from the pizza cals. Ok, so Monday wasn't too bad - IF Tuesday didn't happen.
Tuesday. Zero exercise or QFs. I do not want to use this part as an excuse and i am NOT using it as an excuse, but Monday night i found out a good old friend of mines grandparent died. I was very close to her, and was like another grand daughter growing up. It shook me up. I didn't sleep, and i spent the day under a cloud. I was so tired at the end of work. Again, that's not my excuse, i knew that if i just got changed and pushed for my workout i'd feel better. What did i do? Napped instead. THEN got up and ordered a burger with some more junk food.
Bad bad bad.
Oh and i had chippie chips for lunch too, just because they were there.
Ffs! Today i have been ok eating wise. I feel a little better as i've worked out now. Just annoyed with myself. Annoyed that this is what i'm doing lately, it's like a week on and a week off.
Now i've let off some steam - i need to act upon it. Sometimes i even forget HOW to eat healthy, WHAT to eat that's healthy. Such an idiot sometimes.

Pleased with myself today haha and my smoothie went so so well wooohoo! I think i shall carry on with these and have them for breakfast for a while!
Here's a little snippet of my smoothie...
I wish i could share the taste haha!
So i put a banana in it, a kiwi, some cherries, my protein powder, a tbsp of coconut oil and topped it with milk. Tasted verrrry good! =)
I cleaned my house for hours this morning which made me feel great - and it so needed it. I went shopping for a roast dinner for tonight, got home and prepared (i never usually prepare/cook the roast, DH does that!) then i chilled for a little while and had a cardio dance workout i haven't done for months. Felt great!
Oh and i weighed in and i'm down just over 3lbs so i'm way happy with that and i'm keeping it off!
Happy Sunday people! And Happy Mother's day to the US Mamma's!

I feel great today, really great.
I think part of it has to do with BodyRocking for 6 days this past week. I was pretty much burnt out Friday so i decided last minute to take it as a rest day. I felt a bit crappy about that because i had takeaway with the hubby and ate quite a bit of kebab meat. Nasty i know but i just love it, lol. Anywho's i feel i reversed that and got up early this morning. I did Friday's BodyRock workout, then did a short 4 min intense skip afterwards. I was jumping around my house feeling wonderful. Had my protein and went out for the day with some family.
I've eaten well today and overdosed on tomatoes - LOL. We went to some farm shops so i bought tomatoes to snack on, yummy idea me thinks! We walked along the beach and i ran around with my niece, burning some extra cals and just making myself feel even better!
Not long home so i did the next BR workout - just 6 minutes long. I should have maybe repeated it or skipped afterwards, but i used it as just a top up really, and mainly because i pushed hard and then didn't have anything left in me to do anything else but shower LOL.
I bought lots of fresh fruits today too so i think i'll have a post-workout smoothie in the morning with my hand blender. Although ill have to find the blender first LOL. I'm gonna go make a nice dinner to finish off my day. I feel so full of life and health right now, bodyrocking seriously pays off if you just stick at it and keep your chin up, yahoo!
OH and one more thing. I have a family party coming up at the end of the month, and my Mum and Sis were out shopping yesterday. I work like 24/7(not literally but almost:P) and they picked me up a slinky dress they thought would be perfect. Mum loves picking up sexy/slinky stuff for me now i've lost weight, LOL bless her. So i tried the dress on last night and it's a clingy one that i'd never ever pick but ya know what? I felt amazing in it! In a UK size 12 and it's COMFORTABLE! Seriously i could not believe it. I can't wait to wear it and i shall take a picture, i'm so excited already!!! The party is a black and white party too so i'm hopefully gonna be a little crazy and hire a WHITE suit for the hubby hahaha.

I have to keep reminding myself lately... Um HELLO Steph, do you want this or not? What the heck are you doing?
I want the body. THE body. Hah, i just mean a body. My body, that i can be proud of my hard work and stand tall. Don't get me wrong - i am very proud of how far i've come of course. Now i want better. I want what i wanted back when i was 15 - when i was athletic. I want the athletic body that makes people think "oh yeah she's definitely into her sports/physically active/athletic". I want the physical activity to show.
I'm waffling now - sorry.
I had a really up week, week before last, then a down week, and now i'm back to up. I am inwardly challenging myself to stop and make the right decision. I so wanted pizza on my way home tonight. I wanted to skip the dreaded-burpee workout and eat pizza. I got home and changed and then smiled to myself while i was doing my laces - inner 'Brutus' said to me "You still haven't started, you can still skip it and order a yummy pizza"... So i smiled bigger and laughed at myself. "Nah, i'm there, i'm almost started" LET'S GO!!
On my 3rd day of protein supplement. Think it's too early to notice difference. Was gonna start coconut oil last night but couldn't open the jar and didn't really want the calories. LOL @ not being strong enough to open the jar! Wonder if Zuzana will post any jar opening workouts on BodyRock - hehe!
I go on wayyy too much!
