I really need to sort a plan out for these 2 'active rest' days that are inbetween the workout weeks for the BodyRock Challenge. My brain keeps misreading 'active rest' for 'pig out day' - and twice on the run?!
I did half want to go on the treadmill last night (yes, I'm still babysitting it- from Christmas!) but ah, I admit I did not, I sat on the couch and ate. Ate bad snack food and then dinner, and then was just so full.
Week 2 Day 1 today, so workout when I get home, woo! I wish they did 6 day weeks, that would really help with my eating. I know it's easy enough for me to pick a workout and do one on the Saturday or Sunday.... but the temptation of not having it laid out infront of me and DO THIS STEPH... can be a little bit too much.
I really enjoyed last weeks workouts and am excited to start a new week. I'm a bit worried about the weekend... because the Hubby and I are going for a post-Valentines weekend - Friday to Sunday. I figure I can get my workout done on the Friday morning, but am going to have to sort something out for Saturday's workout. I'll have to see how big the hotel room is, and how thin the floors seem for jumping around. If that fails, then I could take Day 5 of week 2 and add it pre-Week 3.
So there's no excuses then, is there?!

Yup... I fell off again. Y'know, you really would think that Sparking and working out properly for 2 years, it would be easier to stay on the wagon and keep going strong? But that's not real life at all, is it?
If I'm honest, I think now that I'm more in the maintaining stages and concentrating on my fitness and tightening my body.... because I don't have these huge numbers coming off the scale, everything is SO much harder. Like if to begin with, I was only 10lbs over weight, I don't think I'd be able to do it... Everything seems easier for me when you're so far away from a goal that you don't even know if it's possible for you to reach it...
That doesn't make sense much because I am so far away from an amazing-flat-and-ab'd stomach that it would push me on to SEE if I will ever pull that damn saggy skin bag in.
This is a positive blog, even though it may not seem that way haha! I have missed everyone!
I didn't do Week 4 of January's BodyRock 30 Day Challenge. I pushed it away (along with Spark and generally the internet) and ate all the foods I could. Funnily enough, the challenge must have been doing wonders with my body - because after all the food I ate in the 2nd week off the challenge (and it was a lot of food) - I didn't put any weight on! LOL. How weird is that? Thank you body.
SO, I was happy to see a new 30 Day Challenge go up for February...Felt like it was especially for me, lol. So I promised myself (and made it public in other areas) that this 30 Day Challenge - I would stick to. So I got on board. I've done the first week, Days 1 - 5 and I feel great. Those were some hard workouts, and I've been sore all week. It's been good though, and I feel like I've really worked hard with certain parts of my body.
I've been eating really well too this past week, so will weigh in on my normal weigh day again on Monday and actually record it.
What I've just thought of, is my healthy lifestyle still does impact me even when I am in 'self-destruct' mode - I am eating well throughout the day without even realising it. That'll be why the weight didn't grab me, probably. I eat a healthy breakfast and have healthy snacks in the day between my lunch. So really, I'd only really been pigging out for my tea (dinner!) and then a little bit afterwards before bed. I'm subconsciously more sensible in my food choices AND definitely portion sizes now though... so that's good!? :)
So um... Hi everybody and sorry for being crap, lol. It's great to see everyone is doing great and going strong. Always so motivating just checking into Spark... The people here are so wonderful.
I go to Mexico on March 31st... So let's pull this tummy in! :)
