I'm going to do a weekly recap so I can keep myself on track! I can't believe it's May! Two months until the first wedding. Here we go :)
I also wanted to add that I had a great reminder of how the scale doesn't tell the whole story. Doug and I went to a wedding this weekend and I brought 2 dresses - one of which I haven't worn, ever, at all, even though I bought it 2 years ago. It's a gray dress from the Gap and it's a size 10. It's always been a little too small and been too clingy, not zip-able, and I've felt really uncomfortable wearing it in public.
I was going to go with a dress that was too big (I figured too big vs. not quite right), until I put the size 10 on - and it fit! It wasn't clingy at all and it was really comfortable. I was shocked - especially because I'm at least 8-10 pounds from where I would like to be and was when I tried on the dress in the past. Apparently my body has been changing with the weight training I've been doing this year and the scale didn't mean anything in this instance :)
Week 1 Recap:
Mon: Walking, stretching (check)
Tues: Workout A, biking (check)
Wednesday: Walking, stretching, biking (check)
Thursday: Workout B, biking, ran for 5 minutes! (check)
Friday: yoga, biking (not done)
Saturday: dancing at a wedding!
I was very happy to get back in the groove this week. I lifted twice, according to my program, and it felt great! I am really looking forward to getting back on track. I have an event/activity/personal thing going on every weekend for May (except for this upcoming weekend) so I'm so busy. I've realized that I've been very lax on the weekends (which used to be a pattern for me), especially when I'm away from home.
I did alright this week. Much better than the past two months and tried to very, very mindful of my food. I also food journaled every day, which I was happy about. I've been eating a LOT of processed food, that I didn't even realize I was eating, which is the point of a food journal!
Since going back to work, I've been pretty tired. I haven't been getting up early and keeping to my meditation or early morning schedule. I'd like to work on that as well.
Week 2 Goals:
Monday: Biking with the boy, Yoga 30 minutes
Wednesday: Workout A (Female Body Breakthrough)
Friday: Workout B (FBB)
Saturday: Yoga 90 min, Biking with the boy
Sunday: Workout A (FBB)
I have some serious goals this week. Many more than the past few months, but I know I can push myself again and get back to sweaty, hardcore workouts!
Food Goals, Week 2:
Continue to food journal
Eat one serving of fruits and veggies at each meal or snack
Plan and prep recipes for the week
Wellness Goals, Week 2:
Get back to morning routine and get up at 6am, bed by 9:30pm
Continue to meditate in the morning
Next week I'll also take my measurements and weigh in. Here we go, May!
